The service here is abysmal, they will serve you when or if they feel like it usually with a mumbled 'what u be avin', you will then wait 20 minutes for your drinks after several requests and your food may turn up sometime after that. Food is average at best, not as good as previous visits (has there been a change of management?) and you will maybe get a correct bill if you are lucky. Wont be back and i wouldnt go at all you are reading this. Terrible experience.


Couldn't fault it, very good food - nice atmosphere.. wish it was closer to home!


Have been enjoying this lovely unpretentious 'laid back' restaurant for years. Always has a chilled out vibe, which seems to rub off on the customers in a good way! For terrific Caribbean food this is the place - OK some dishes might be on the bone, but that's what we were given hands for - pick them up! Took two lovely housemates Jenna & Frank last night after seeing the classic Quadrophenia at the Ritzy Cinema - first intro to Carib food and loved it!


WOW!!! Went to Bamboula for the first time with three mates. Atmosphere 10/10, service 10/10, food... off the scale, Brilliant! Love the music, reminded us of being on holiday in the caribbean. We are in Brixton for a concert next week and a table for six has been booked at Bamboula , cant wait!!


Stopped in for a quick tea and cake, but was enticed by the Tropical Fruit Crumble on the menu so stayed a bit longer than planned. The food was good, as was the service.
