A really nice change

It must be 5 years since I'd been to a chinese restaurant as there's none in my area worth visiting. I went here with 2 friends & had the set menu for 3. I judge a good chinese by its hot & sour soup and this one was really good, as were the main courses, all nicely spicy but not... read more

Went on a wednesday night and was quite busy so I would advise booking beforehand. Had the vegetarian banquet which serves 2 for £36, including soup, starter, mains, rice, fresh fruit and chinese tea. All very tasty.

We visited this restaurant recently when spending a weekend in Cockermouth. This restaurant was recommended to us by friends who live in Cockermouth. We were not disappointed . A lovely friendly young waiter gave a good explanation of certain dishes and pointed us in the right direction as to what dishes we would enjoy. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening... More

we called in on the off chance of a table on the back a local shopkeeper's recommendation. Despite the place being really busy we were lucky enough to be given a table. Well worth the visit. Food hot and very well cooked. Portion size was good. Prices were acceptable. I think the constant stream of customers calling in for takeaways... More

In my opinion this is the best place to go for dinner in Cockermouth. The food is always excellent and fresh. The staff are incredibly helpful. Sure it maybe is slightly expensive however it's quality you are paying for. The salt and pepper chips on the menu is quite simply one of the best things I have ever eaten!

We visited Cockermouth for a weekend to visit friends. We stumbled upon Bamboo Restaurant. We wasn't aware from the street as to whether it was a Chinese or Thai restaurant. Inside we were met with a lovely English lad who rapidly found us a table on the Friday evening, even though they were obviously busy. Bamboo offer predominately Chinese food,... More
