About Bambudda


Bambudda has been a dream of mine ever since early adulthood. I grew up in Strathcona in the 70′s (five blocks from Bambudda), and I’m still living in the same neighborhood. Chinatown and Gastown were a big part of my childhood. I still remember $1.49 Tuesdays at Woodward’s, the original Save On Meats, and Golden Harvest Chinese Theatre at Main & Hastings, where my Mom used to take me for movies.

The cuisine at Bambudda combines elements of the food I grew up eating (either Mom’s cooking or restaurants in 1970′s-1980′s Chinatown) with modern French influences and interpretations in a contemporary setting. Bambudda has a private room for up to 20 people, a corner patio and bar seating with sliding doors that open up in the summer. The menu includes family-style share plates paired with an innovative, Asian-inspired cocktail list.

Chef Curtis Luk uses local, seasonal, sustainable and msg free ingredients to create unique and imaginative dishes. Our menu and cocktail list brings freshness and innovation to you every season of the year. – Ray Loy, Owner/GM
