We stopped in for lunch and had a great time. The food and service was great. We were also lucky enough to have several monkeys come by towards the end of the meal. Really cool experience.

The inside of Bambu Jam was great, everything made out of wood, almost looks like a huge tree house. Had dinner here one night. Not great, but it was nice to relax and watch TV on of there large screen TV's.

Breakfast was included with the hotel. The food was good but less selection then at other hotels. Service was not so good until they heard you talking about it.

This restaurant is on the grounds of the Tabulia Tree Hotel. We had breakfast there 3 days in a row while staying there. Really mediocre. I wouldn't recommend that anyone make a stop here.
