Love it! So cosy, friendly, warm vibes, the arrangement; staff friendly and welcoming. Food yummy, wonderfully delivered on a wooden tray. I'll be a regular customer here!

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

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

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening as a large party at Bamboula - the service was second to none, and the food was delicious. Strongly recommend the jerk pork and curry goat, and their festival was spot on. Thank you!

Great little spot, nice decor, reminds me off a Montego Bay rum shack. Ordered the traditional red stripe beer - great, nice and cool. Starters - pumpkin soup which was delicious but could have done with a bit more for the cost £5 and jerk chicken and mango salad which was great. Mains were Brown stew chicken with rice and... More

Great food and the service was really friendly! Delicious drinks also. It just took a while for us to get the bill which was strange as it's such a small restaurant. I will definitely go back though!

Friend wanted to travel from Reading to eat here as it was her birthday yesterday. It says they are open all day so we decided to wander around Brixton Market and Brixton Village and as soon as we felt peckish decided to wander over. It was just gone 2.15pm and the restaurant looked empty from the outside. On entering the... More
