Rude lady I think the owner probably, she didnt seem to mind I could hear her moaning about people in the restaurant - Food was okay but portions where sparse. Coffee was bland, will be the last time I visit.

Sorry, but your review is suspicious and not representative of Bambu. We value customers, offer generous portions and our coffee is a high quality Italian brand which is frequently praised by our core market and noted in many other reviews.
