Title says it all really. Very expensive for what you get, dim sum combination just comes in one big tray all together covered in seaweed. Very greasy and sat on us for days. Won't be ordering from here ever again!

One of my favourite Chinese takeaways. Delivery was the time they said it would be and staff nice and friendly. Good, tasty food. They even gave us a complimentary new year calendar ~ all very lovely.

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.
