Couldn't do enough for us

Enjoyed a very nice meal here. The spicy hummus and the mixed grill were delicious! Excellent value for money. The waiter/chef/owner was so friendly and you could see he was set out to impress. He kept bringing us sauces to try and gave us baklava to try with our coffees. Would definitely go there... read more

The food was cooked fresh. The decor was lovely. Staff were friendly. Portion sizes were generous. Very tasty food especially falafel, hummus, kebabs and halloumi. Recommended - you'll love it.

Have eaten here twice before and never had an issue with the food. The last time we arrived we had friends who enjoyed the experience. Would recommend

I have eaten at this establishment on four previous occasions and have enjoyed each of the meals I had. I visited on Saturday evening with friends and was, as a consequence of previous visits, looking forward to my meal. However, I was very disappointed to find that two (I didn't bother cutting the third) of my starter of three deep... More

This was the second time I had been to bamboo grill recently and the service is always absolutely lovely. The staff are very friendly and chatty and seem to genuinely care about their customers. I am a pescetarian and there is some choice for me on the menu which is always nice! I had the halumi to start on both... More

The inside of the restaurant is like being inside a bedouin tent,the food is excellent and the staff friendly and helpful.The kicker is,you can take your own wine,instead of getting ripped off as you do in other restaurants.

This place is now called the lebsnese grill. Give it a wide berth it is still the bamboo grill just a change of name. £9.00 for a kebab that would not feed my dog. Go else where.

I visited with two friends and was pleasantly surprised on the decor and is a very small inside. We had a warm welcome on arrival. There was quite a good selection on the menu and didn't have to wait long for our food. Lovely food with good service which felt similar to being on holiday abroad. Would go there again... More

I last reviewed 'Bamboo Grill' in September 2012 and back then the restaurant was young and having visited many times I could genuinely say it was a very very good place to go. Unfortunately, after not going for sometime, I recently returned on two separate occasions and was utterly disappointed! The first occasion we were left feeling very disappointed with... More

I used the take out service yesterday having done this when the place had been opened a short while and it was great but yesterday the food was absolutely gross. The chips were freezing and soggy and the salad was turning with brown edges on the leaves and cucumber that was ageing. The chicken was a greyish colour and I... More
