This small restaurant is popular with the people who are familiar with Indonesian food. The portions are generous. Food tastes good. We arrived just as 2 tables vacated. Another group came after we sat down. A few people came to order take-away while we were there.
What a find! It was one of those days when I was very hungry, had little time in hand, made a quick search and LUCKILY found Bamboe.
Food was incredible. Got lucky again when I overheard the chef describe a dish that wasn’t in the menu (gotta love those).
It was something like the Balinese Babi guling- flavourful rice, tender chinked Maryland in green sauce, pork sausages, pork skewers,small quantities of varied yummy salads and best of all roast pork with yummy crispy crackling! Enjoyed every bite I took.
Chef and staff were delightful and very friendly. Can’t wait to go back.
I love Indonesian food as it’s not easy to replicate it at home. Bamboe Indonesian Restaurant in Camberwell is a convenient place to visit for an Indonesian fix!
☀️The sunny bits:
Service was very warm and friendly. Their extensive menu had something for everyone (they even had chips!). We had 2 nasi komplit - the beef rendang was very tender and all the accompaniments were spot on. Parking was easy to find.
☁️The cloudy bits:
The chicken satay was dry and it could have benefited from more peanut sauce.
Looking forward to trying their other items real soon.

Woahhh this is going to be one of my go-to takeaway restaurant! I ordered chicken skewers with satay sauce with rice and salad so that I can compare with the same items from a nearby Malaysian restaurants that I visit regularly. The skewers here are incomparable, definitely chargrilled with the nice scent! They are so juicy and tender but not oily at all! I have also ordered the Rendang Padang (Beef Rendang) with rice and salad. I was a bit hesitant initially because it looked a bit dark. But once I had a piece I just couldn’t stop. The beef was so tender and flavourful, the whole dish was filled with the nice smell of mixed spice and herbs. There are a few options for carbs, you can choose among rice, bread or chips to go with your dish. Highly recommend this restaurant because of its location (right next to carpark), good value for the portion and the quality of the dishes! 100% worth your money, definitely going to try other dishes soon!
Went again in the same week and ordered M3. Ayam Penyet/Bakar Kremes komplit with grilled half chicken and rice as well as N2. Nasi Kuning Komplit with Rendang Chicken. You won’t regret ordering N2, value for money, great flavour and generous portion.
