Decided on a takeaway last evening. We have had takeways here before and, though they are not quite as good as other Exmouth takeaways, they aren't usually too bad. Last night was awful. We ordered chicken with vegetables. The vegetables consisted of a few onions, some bamboo shoots, carrots and slushy mushy sweetcorn - yuck. The special rice had a... More

Me and my parents went here one cold day in February, and although we were standing by the front desk for around 5 minutes, once we were seated the orders were dealt with smoothly and quickly. We all opted for the lunchtime buffet, and the choice wasn't massive, but I felt it didn't need to be any bigger. There were... More

I used to visit Bamboo Restaurant quite often when I lived in Exmouth but after I moved I visit this place only occasionally. I would say the quality remains same and I never had a bad meal there. Decor is nice and the service is brilliant . Prices are low. Few days ago we went there with my husband and... More

So fancied a Chinese . Went here and walked inside. Waited at the bar and 5 minutes later a man came up to us and asked if he could help. We said we would like some food, he then looked at his watch and huffed and said follow me. We were in at 10 and service finishes at 11. We... More

Polite staff , nice decor, prices average or just above. Fair variety. The food....... I thought they served the best prawn toast I have ever had, mainly because of the higher prawn content compared to other places. The sweet and sour chicken balls were not as fatty as many other places, which was a bonus, but a touch overcooked. Chicken... More
