A cold and wet evening saw us walk down into town for a meal at Bamboo. We had booked for 5.30 and decided on the vegetarian banquet. We were the first in (apart from carry-out collections) but the place soon filled up. The starter platter was a meal in itself and then there were three main dishes and a large... More

Booked a meal for 8.30 on 03.01.15 for 7 people a very special celebration . After 20 minutes we still had no menus or drinks order taken. It just went downhill from there . Staff were too busy on mobile phones to be bothered . We finally got our main course at almost 10 pm which is totally unacceptable .... More

Visited this restaurant early on Christmas Eve , within 15 mins it was 90% full! The restaurant is well laid out and has a pleasant feel about it. The menu is varied and caters for both Chinese and Thai cuisine, we ordered a mixture of the two and we were not disappointed by any dish, the crispy mango chicken is... More

Went here whilst in Cockermouth. Thought it strange that the menu was in the window with no prices. When i got in and saw the menu I could see why. Took a while for our orders to be taken and i nearly rang up and asked if they did telephone orders. Anyway the food was really good if a tad... More

We've often eaten in here but never had a take away so thought we'd try it. We were told the wait would be 20 minutes, but it turned out more like 40. The prices aren't much cheaper than if you eat in, but you do seem to get more for your money.

I've been here a number of times over the years - the food is consistently good, although it is pretty expensive for what it is and for the area. Décor is nice, however the restaurant was freezing on the last visit - and I don't easily get cold! Toilets are very limited (only one WC for men) considering the size... More

We managed to get a table in this rightfully busy Chinese restaurant. Food was excellent as were the staff. Four of us shared a starter for 2 which was more than enough for us. The main course portions were generous and of good quality. We had a thoroughly good meal.

too busy on Saturday so we couldn't book a table so we went on Sunday. Excellent friendly service with really good tasty food - much better than our local Chinese! We recommend!
