My friend and I went to the bamboo looking for some normal chinese food. What we had was everything but chinese (and good). The asparagus and noodle soup tasted like water with some more water in it. The wun Kung (spice stir fried vegetables) was about some nearly raw vegetables drowned into a raspberry cordial-like souce. Apart from this very... More

We have been here too many times to mention so I thought I'd write at least one review. We tend to keep to the same starter (mixed starters), then a quarter duck and then a main meal with one rice between us. Never had a bad meal. Price is very good around £60 for the two of us with 2... More

We have eaten here on many occasions and it never disappoints. Are here and enjoyed the early bird special as it offers great food at a great price! All the staff are very efficient and friendly 🙂!

The menu is extensive but at lunchtime on Thursdays and Saturdays, there is a cheap lunchtime menu with a discount for pensioners. The food is very good and served... More

Went for a early meal with our 2 young boys 9 and 12 and took advantage of their early bird offer. We had lovely 2 x sweet and sour chicken and a chicken in black been sauce with rice and noodles. The portions were big so there was plenty to go round. The service was very quick which was good... More

Went hear early evening and ordered from the early bird menu (a range of about 12 dishes for £5.95 each all of which come with rice) - being well priced and knowing we tend to eat large portions between the two of us we ordered 4 dishes altogether. We had s&s chicken, king po chicken, beef in yellow bean sauce,... More

Had a very enjoyable meal. Came in quite late and we're lucky to get a table. Clearly very busy and some of the previous comments do mention service issues but we could all the staff very friendly but they certainly work hard! Food was very good and plentiful. Chilli squid delicious, as were sweet chilli king prawns. Also try the... More
