We ate at Bamboo with friends - the food was delicious - we shared entrees and had individual mains. While we got our entrees on time, the lapse between entree and mains was nearly an hour - which was poor. Apparently our waiter did not give our mains order to the kitchen. I think this is poor service - although the food was good. They should have offered a discount or something or an apology at least.

Food was pretty good but came at really staggered times so our group wasn't eating at the same time.
Location is on the corner of a road and quite open to traffic but they've done the outdoor area really well and the atmosphere was fun.
Service was average.
To book, I had to leave an email address and they've since been spamming me with newsletters I didn't sign up to. Not major, just unsubscribe but it's just a bit rude.

We loved our dinner here! We were starving but the food came quickly and was so interesting. I loved my softshell crab bao and my son enjoyed the super spicy pork belly and wings although he said there was no meat on the wings, just spicy sauce! The menu was varied and fresh and the staff fairly attentive and helpful! We ate dessert too which was mainly bc our lips were burning up from the chilis! My omly criticism was it was all way too salty, butwe had agreat time here!

We had a really nice dinner here on referral from a friend and it was great. Tasty fresh food done in an Asian fusion style, really good. The service was a little hit and miss at times but generally very friendly
