Ordered special fried rice curry sauce and salt and pepper ribs a while ago. Ribs where dry and hard phoned to complain they said they will replace next order no charge. Ordered food today they conveniently forgot they said that. Will not order from there...More

Huge portions, but pointless as most of it went in the bin..... It was the blandest, most tasteless Chinese food I've ever eaten.... Sorry but true....

This has just got to be the worst salt and pepper chicken EVER..... 😱 They've just deep fried the wings in dirty oil and covered it in soggy chillies. Completely NASTY.....

Haven't had any take away since before Christmas so decided to treat ourselves to our favorite Bamboo. How it has changed in the last 6/7 weeks. Very slow delivery (later than advised and usually arrives much earlier than advised) the chips were revolting. Certainly not...More

Called in as this used to be my very regular takeaway years ago, was so looking forward to my sweet and sour chicken balls as there’s only a few places that serve the balls separately to the sauce. Good fast friendly service and free bag...More

If you fed this to a real Chinese person they would be disgusted. Awful slop. I had special chop suey and it was worse than terrible. Avoid avoid avoid.

Had a takeaway on Saturday 21 st October. I was actually disappointed with our meal . I love bamboo normally but was not impressed this time -. The beef was tough and the veg was cut far to big and was hard . Disappointed

When Bamboo's first opened its doors to the public in 1967, it was the only Chinese takeaway in the whole Preston. From the success and recognition of today is purely down to Head Chef Johnny Wong and his wife Bobo. The creative cuisine you enjoy is based on the family route from native home in Hong Kong when he spends time to help in the kitchen learned from his mother, cooking was fun and especially wood fire was the only fuel available to used; Food has to be cook fast and fresh because the flame from wood fire cannot be control, this creates “wok on fire “ But it's not just Johnny in the kitchen. He works with a team of talented chefs. Together, they invent and wok up exciting Chinese dishes for you to enjoy. Stop by Bamboo to try some of their tasty creations – hot, fresh and share the fun with your family and friends at Bamboo.
