Bamboo Shoot

For authentic Chinese cuisine, there is no better place in Dhaka than Bamboo Shoot. Not only is the food worth the trip (the menu offers a huge variety of Chinese delicacies and favourite staples), but visitors can also enjoy and even participate in some karaoke.


Bangladeshi cuisine has been largely shaped by the country's geography: a vast network of intertwining rivers and deltas with seasonal monsoons and floods. As such, rice is a staple in the country's diet, along with lentils and, of course, river fish. This is all served with fragrant curries and warm breads, and it is filling and delectable. Add in some fine international restaurants, and visitors will eat more than their share while in Dhaka.
