Good Thai Food

Hi I ate at this restaurant on Wednesday evening and as usual it was very busy. If you are looking for tasty Thai or Chinese food in Cockermouth this is for you. We have eaten here several times over the years and are never disappointed. It is best to ring to check availability as it is often... read more

Placed an order with this takeaway and ordered a chicken curry and vegetable curry. When we got home discovered they had given us two chicken curries. Being a vegetarian this was less than ideal. When we phoned back to inform them of the wrong meal they wouldn't send a new one. Insisting we drove all the way back to get... More

In reality it was extremely bland.,my son (8) is a fussy eater, so when I asked if the duck... More

My partner and I went one Sunday evening - the duck we had was fine. My partner had ordered Chicken and cashew nuts as he is allergic to peppers. When it arrived, everything, including the chips , was covered in peppers. They asked if he wanted something else but said they could not guarantee it would be pepper free, even... More

We travel to Cockermouth once a year for the Malcolm Wilson rally and have waited a year to eat here. Last year, we tried to get a table at this restaurant, but it was fully booked. So, we booked nice and early this year and it was worth the wait. The staff were all very young, but very attentive and... More

Ok so I'm hearing rave reviews about Bamboo, but to be fair it's from people some years younger than this old man that has been eating Thai food for nearly 20 years. Thai is my favourite cuisine and I like to cook it once in a while as well as dine in the few Thai restaurants Cumbria has to offer.... More

I absolutely love this place and it's always my first choice when eating out on a special occasion! It's takes us about 35-40 minutes to drive there but it's always worth it! Staff are always friendly and helpful. The food is outstanding. I'm a lover of thai food but my sister always hers Chinese and she raves about how amazing... More

We booked this well in advance for our twin sons 25th birthday. We weren't disappointed. We ordered a celebration banquet for 5. We all had plenty to eat and the food was great. As a restaurant the price was average (about £30 a head including 2 rounds of drinks) They were full when we arrived and we were glad we'd... More

I recommend this Chinese & Thai restaurant in Cockermouth if you are in the locality in the evening, as we were told to eat there by the locals and were not disappointed. I had the Beef Thai Red Curry which was very flavoursome. It is easy to see how good Bamboo is from the numbers of patrons inside, recommend you... More
