Has gone downhill

I was very disappointed to return to this once fantastic restaurant and see how much it had gone downhill. The food used to be top notch but sadly our sharing platter (which used to have my toddler scoffing her body weight in prawn toast) was microwaved hot and had none of the great flavour... read more

It was a quiet Wednesday evening in September. We were hungry and Chinese food is a huge favourite. We had glimpsed at TA for the best Chinese offering in town and all seemed "much of a muchness" so it was "tail on the donkey time". Service pleasant enough, menu had one or two slightly unusual elements and there was plenty... More

We often eat in the "Bamboo" and have never had cause to complain. Last week with a party of four we enjoyed Canton Gourmet, the choice was excellent for all parties and the helping more than adequate with about 40% of the serving ending up as a take away. Parking is available outside the establishment if you are an early... More

We ordered baked duck but i think they brought us a fried one. Tasteless food no value for money. We were not happy with the service and also with the food quality.

The weekend buffet the bamboo offers is brilliant! Great value for money and quality food !With polite accommodating staff, a calm peaceful atmosphere and a clean up to date seating area, it's by far the best Chinese to eat in Exmouth !

This place is one of my wife's favourites and is always enjoyable. We have visited many time when we get to travel to Exmouth and we managed a night away from the kids during our stay there this summer. We had a set meal for two and the food was excellent and vary healthy in portion size as usual. We... More

This is a great place for a Chinese meal and having been there multiple times it never disappoints. The Crispy Duck and Pancakes is first rate.
