Love the Bambou for sitting in and take away. Food is reasonably priced and delicious. I recommend the honey chilli chicken!

We dropped in for a table for 4 on Friday night. The staff were friendly but the food wasn't up to scratch. Chicken was tough, spaces didn't taste fresh. One good main course out of four. Need to up the standard

The atmosphere and food here along with the service is outstanding. You can not go wrong if you like Chinese food. A great menu, thanks. Happy to put leftovers in a takeaway for you, which for me is a need.

We visited here last night for my mums birthday. Staff are super friendly. Plenty to choose from on the menu. Child's meal was brought out with our starters which was good. Dim sum is the best ever and the salt and chilli turbot is highly recommended!! Great to see they are starting a tapas style menu as well as a... More

Food 🍲 was good. But for a person whom is not familiar with the full Chinese language and there information about the menu, my experience for eating in was not good. But for takeaway food 🍲 it's really very nice. I would prefer to take a way than eat in their restaurant 🍴.

Menu seems to have a lot on it. Staff constantly at table hovering about so felt awkward. I had sizzling Mongolian beef which had a disgusting flavour and gritty texture but endured eating half as I was out on a date and didn't want to hurt dates feelings by complaining about food but noticed he only ate half of his...

I went for the set menu B, and it was good. There was two dishes that l loved; the tomato soup and the chicken in the hosin sauce. The rice was well cooked and the mains were very good. The mixed starter was slightly disappointing compared to the rest of the menu. The staff are lovely and I'd recommend you... More

We visited Bamboo again and again they did not disappoint. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the staff were as friendly and helpful as always. We normally go for the set dinner which is more than enough for two people with plenty of choice. Most importantly the food is of a good standard, combining that with the friendly staff... More
