Such fresh and good quality food, service was great. Best Chinese food I've had in a very long time, I would highly recommend going.

Went to Chinese New Year there last week and the food was shocking. It was very expensive £37 per head and the mixed starter consisted of deep fried crab sticks, samosas (???) with no filling and chicken nuggets served with mayonnaise!!! The main course was equally poor! The Restaurant decor looks very tired and dirty and the stair carpet is... More

We visited as a family of 9 and the food was excellent as always. Meat eaters, gluten free, vegans and vegetarians....everyone well catered for and everyone really enjoyed their food and service.

Four of us visited Jambo's restaurant for lunch. Unfortunately we were the only diners in this restaurant but we had the best meal we've ever had and the views overlooking St Brelade's beach added to our experience. We shared two starters - Prawn and sesame toasts and a large portion of Crispy duck with steamed pancakes, spring onions, celery and... More

The restaurant is situated in an upstairs location which provides fabulous views across St. Brelade's Bay. The restaurant rarely seems to be busy, which is perhaps a reflection of the average food on offer, since the location alone should serve to draw in a greater number of customers than it seems to attract. Certainly, other nearby restaurants are invariably busier... More

Visited here last year and decided to return, which was a wise decision. The food is still of very good quality and is not too greasy but yet still fills you up. The set menu B is a decent amount for 2 people, and with Jasmine tea to finish and views over the bay, it makes this Chinese a great... More

We have seen this restaurant many times when we have been to Jersey but were always put off by the external appearance but dont be. We had a great meal here with good service and the views over St Brelades are fantastic.

Working on the Island just for the day. Was taken to Jambo with the person I was working with. Not a great fan of Chinese restaurants instead preferring a takeaway. A little dated but everything is in good clean condition. Started with the Jambo roll. Bit like a spring roll but more like a prawn toast. Whatever it was it... More

Dont't be put off by having to go up stairs to the restaurant ( Slightly dingy entrance), the food was well worth it, restaurant clean but a bit dated but staff and service very good. Went there 3 times in the week we were there. Particularly loved the prawns in batter and the sea spiced chicken. Would recommend it

We have been living very nearby here for several months, and have resisted ordering food from here, as my husband had tried it previously, and lets just say he was not in a rush to go back. However, a couple of months ago, on a wintery saturday night we were hankering for a cosy takeaway so decided to give it... More
