The food in this place is so good we have started eating Asian food again! We had gone off Chinese food as it had become a bit 'stale' - but Bamboo has re-awakened our taste buds - clean, fresh and tastes great. Generous portions as well. The staff are all really really friendly and can't do enough for you. If... More

We came here late last year. The food was really good and the portions were large. I asked if I could have a box to take my leftovers home. I was that busy making sure I had my leftovers that I left my handbag under the table! Went back as soon as I realised and they had it safe behind... More

Visited Bamboo with my partner last night, booked a table as we had been turned away previously. We were seated straight away even though it seemed quite busy. We were given menu's and some time to choose what we wanted. I ordered Thai style spring rolls and beef with green pepper in black Bean sauce with egg fried rice and... More

First and best Chinese we've tried since moving to the area. The crispy duck is the best we've ever had, hands down. The dishes are all flavoured so well & it's just a joy to eat their food. Sadly we've only eaten there as take away so far but the restaurant itself looks lovely & has a nice atmosphere &... More

Been here a few times now and every time it never disappoints. I booked weeks in advance with it being Christmas and it was full on a Thursday night. The food was delivered rather quick, and it was all to die for. No one complained in our party of 4 and we all had clear plates. Although I was stuffed... More

Very prompt friendly service, lovely food and reasonably priced. The spare ribs are definitely worth a try if you're having a starter. Only complaint is that oven chips are used for the salt and pepper chips, I think it should be illegal for restaurants to use oven chips

Nice fusion of Thai and Chinese meals to choose from and everything I've tried has been excellent. Nice authentic atmosphere, good service and never had to wait long for food.

Had yellow Thai curry, which was different to what I would expect, but still nice. However the salt and pepper chips are to die for. Order these whatever you have. Tad spicy but blimey they deliver on taste.

We ordered a takeaway from here on our first night in the western lakes. We opted for a set menu for 4, and all the dishes were full of flavour and well cooked. This is proper Cantonese food, not the cheaper Chinese fayre server up by many restaurants.

Thank Paul B
