Visited this lovely restaurant so many times over the years when in the area. This time it was terrible. Heated up yesterday's food. Plantain like bullets,jerk chicken cold and slimy, rice in solid clumps and salad wilted. Waited over 45 mins. We asked whether it was possible to be served soon as we had to get back to work in...

Visited this place on the recommendation from a friend who knows her West Indian food. Laid back place with very friendly staff. All the food was legit. Ordered all my favs - jerk chicken, rice & peas, plantain, festival, boiled dumpling. All the jerk chicken was perfectly delicious, it wasn't the kind I prefer where it is barbecued in drum.

Went here for dinner with friends. The Jerk chicken, rice and peas and plantain were lovely (and only £10). Cool music and friendly staff. Good for a casual dinner.

We passed this restaurant on the way to Khamsa and it looked pretty intriguing. Let's just say we'd booked a table at Khamsa but didn't end up going and ended up here-what a brilliant decision. Firstly the person who attended to us gave us a reserved table (though we hadn't booked), which was very nice of him. The staff were... More

I went to this restaurant with my friend who has been a few times. I had the pumpkin and it was divine. I thought the portion was small when first arrived but in the end it was perfect for me. My friend recommended a few dishes. I ordered a cocktail that I did not like and the waiter kindly got... More

I booked a table for a surprise birthday party at Bamboula for my boyfriend. Everything went so well and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. They called me on the day to make sure everything went smoothly and brought out the cake I made for dessert with candles. Food and cocktails DELICIOUS and came really quickly. We had... More
