Decided to eat here whilst in Cockermouth, managed to fit us in, hadn't booked, we were very lucky, very busy. Service fantastic and food was very good. Great value for money, lovely place, will be back, but please book so you won't be disappointed if there is no places.

I've been going to bamboo for years. It is by far the best Chinese food I've tasted.The food is amazing, it is full of flavour and the salt and pepper chips are to die for! I go regularly for takeaway and the staff are lovely too and always make an effort to engage in conversation. I cannot fault this place.

Had a lovely evening here. Recommended by hotel receptionist and did not disappoint. Probably the best Chinese meal I've had. Excellent food and reasonably priced for a lovely restaurant. Definitely recommend *****

Fantastic food with lots of variety. Great ribs for starters. Booking essential to avoid disappointment. Parking available opposite with local bars and shops. Lovely old Market Place sadly no longer a market.

Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Had looked on trip advisor for places to eat as on holiday in Cockermouth. It has put my faith back in Chinese food. Just disappointed it is so far away from home. We just turned up at about 5.20pm on a Tues. There were quite a few diners in so I think that says something... More
