“A treat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Decided to take two friends out for a Sunday afternoon lunch.
The place was crowded but we were able to get a table after a few minutes wait-we had not even booked. We were served by a very pleasant waiter who we jokingly said we would time as he took and delivered our order. We were pleasantly surprised by the speed and efficiency he served us and we all settled for a fish dish which was fresh, appetising and tastefully arranged. The fruit juices were certainly freshly squeezed and the overall ambiance of the place made for a very relaxing afternoon. Have been there before for a wedding lunch, work staff treat. I will continue returning- for the decor, value for money meals, polite service and also the outdoorsy feel of the place.

“Great family atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

The food is good but the space is so amazing that you keep ordering more cause you don't want to leave. Kids are free to play on the beautifully manicured while each table has just enough privacy. A great place for events too.

“It's an awesome setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We've been there many times, our more popular occasion getting friends together and celebrating birthdays. Being a large group, we usually try get their private dining room as we tend to make noise. The staff get our food and drinks right and for large groups, that's a pretty difficult task. I think we have had some of our best times at Bamboo

“Winner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed this restuarant. High quality food, excellent and attentive service. Prices on the high side but better value than comparable Nairobi venues.
