We just wandered into Cockermouth for food and spotted Bamboo. Excellent service and food. Very tidy restaurant. Good range of meals on the menu. Reasonably priced. We took a chance and got lucky.

We visited this restaurant on 10th August. On arrival the waiter and waitress were welcoming and very friendly. In fact, the service throughout our meal was fantastic. The waiter chatted with us and even helped us with directions to Ambleside and suggested things to do in the area. Unfortunately, the food was a complete let down and seriously overpriced. For...

It was my birthday and I was looking forward to a nice meal out. Although there was an entrance at the front, it was blocked by a large plant and one had to enter via a side passage. The serving staff were nearly all English which one doesn't expect to get in a foreign restaurant. However, they were all very... More

Went with some colleagues for a meal here. The service was good and the waiting staff were attentive. However the food was just ok. It was not bad as such but I have definitely tasted better Chinese/Thai food so I am afraid an average from me.

We went as a couple living locally with 7 other people who had travelled from York and the Wirral to celebrate my husbands very special birthday. My choice of restaurant was complimented by everyone on the quality of food and service.

Visited with my boyfriend on a Saturday night, food was great, lots of variety, reasonably priced. However, decor needs updated and it is ridiculous how much of a nightmare it is to get through to them via telephone. It just rings out everytime! Overall great meal, will return.

We spent the afternoon in town unexpectedly today and were left with little time to cook so decided on a takeaway from Bamboo as it was fully booked for sitting in. I have had several meals here in the past, takeaways too, which have always been good. My chicken musaman tonight however, was terrible! The chicken was chewy and tasted... More

Ive been to Bamboo a few times now and it never fails to please. Very much your normal small town Chinese and the food and service hold absolutely nothing to complain about. Portion sizes are all on the very generous side and everything ive ordered off the Chinese menu has been very tasty. The restaurant also does a Thai menu...a... More
