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

Restaurant was well decorated but very empty. Very good service and staff were polite and friendly. food was nice and well cooked and cheap. Probably a bit over marketed as the decor etc is a bit upmarket for food it provides but good cheap food and well worth visiting again.

Always wanted too try the bamboo for its refreshing approach to marketing in Pontypridd. This little restaurant has a great personality. Its simple inexpensive food serves up some tasty lebanese cuisine. I ate the vine leaves which were served warm for starters and a simple burger and fries for main. Expect friendly service simple food and an affordable bill. Worth... More

Food was not as described on menu, garlic mushrooms steer clear!! Cheap price reflects quality of food. Will not return. Also turn the music down it's a bit OTT.

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend who raved about the amazing food, attentive staff and great value for money. Now I cannot fault the price. The meal was incredibly cheap, and fairly yummy, but I should have known paying such a low price would result in a drop in quality. The interior is well decorated and makes for... More

this restaurant always makes feel like I'm on holiday as soon as I step inside,from the music they play to the great service offered and the food is cooked freshly to order! Although they don't have a license to serve alcohol you can take your own, it is very cheap to eat here and worth trying if you like Lebanese... More

My daughter and her partner had eaten at this restaurant several times previously and been very satisfied with the food and service. This time however visiting as a larger family group, we were all disappointed. Most of the starters were cold (I had garlic mushrooms, obviously cooked from frozen and unfit for consumption). The main courses were little better and... More

Went on the 14th February,the service was very slow,the starters were tasteless, ordered steak rare for main course, it was cooked medium and the fries were cold, and placed under the steak,have been there a few times, but the standards have dropped quite a bit, won't go back,it was a waste of money.
