OK takeaway - better than most

Only a small order on a Sunday night - what is good is they have extended the opening hours to 1030pm 7 days (at least) Food was OK - in fact pretty good - very acceptable and so much better than most locally. Just nothing special.

The service was sharp and friendly, no problems there. The portions generous but short on flavour. My rice was heavy and the rest of the meal seemed to tell... More

I found The Bamboo a pleasant restaurant, situated in a convenient location in the heart of Exmouth. The staff were very friendly and efficient, reseating us on a different table due to the first table being too close to the door. As a vegetarian, I was happy with the amount of choices on the menu, although would have liked to... More

our takeaways arrived quite quickly after telephone order and were warm, but overall the taste was bland and interest was expressed in the group about, was thought to be, unusual thin strips of meat in the chicken dishes, they seemed to be an unfamiliar cut or perhaps they were reconstituted like some other meats, there was nothing unpleasant with the...
