Great family meal

Decided to try somewhere different and pleasantly surprised. Lovely ribs, spring rolls and pork dumplings to start. Beef with mushrooms, spicy satay pork and excellent sweet and sour chicken balls to follow. Not the tiny piece of meat wrapped in a soggy bit of batter that you sometimes get but a... read more

Me and my partner were looking for somewhere to eat in Exmouth and came across bamboo, never been here before so we thought we would try it out. The staff were very friendly and the service was very quick the food was excellent. Had a really lovely evening meal and shall return here again another time.

We used to eat here weekly but the buffet stopped and the banquet and all in all its not special anymore. Disappointed in the last visit. Bring back the buffet!

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. Since this restaurant no longer uses... 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 !
