It was New Years Eve and my wife was looking for a Chinese takeaway to celebrate the New Year, our usual Chinese was closed over the New Year so my wife had a look on Trip Advisor to try and find a nice take away, she came across the Eastern Bamboo in Darlington, she looked and that restaurant seemed to...

We have been visiting this restaurant for over 28 years and as ever our experience was lovely. Gorgeous food - we had a set banquet - and fabulous attentive service. Restaurant was surprisingly quiet for a Friday night but we had a lovely evening.

We visit a couple of times a year as a family to celebrate birthdays. We always order duck and pancakes to share for starter and a few different soups. For mains we always try different things on the menu. The food is absolutely outstanding, and the staff are so friendly and welcoming. The outside of the restaurant doesn't look like... More

Don't live locally and needed somewhere to eat, found this place on trip advisor. Turned up wondering what we had booked when we saw the store front but don't let it fool you, the food was delicious and the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. An unexpected gem, shame it isn't in Leeds

Been here a few times and the food is always excellent. Usually go with friends but visited recently with family who said it was a beautiful meal. In fact they bought us vouchers as a Christmas gift so my husband and I can go again soon.

Had a fantastic greeting once entered. Interior is traditional Chinese. Very clean and a great menu. Food in our opinion very good. A bit pricey but well worth it. Food was fresh and rice was light and fluffy. Next time in Darlington we will give it a visit.

Visited here last week and we decided to go for the banquet option, which proved to be an excellent choice. Duck Pancakes, Chicken & Sweetcorn soup, followed by a good selection of main courses, were all thoroughly enjoyed. The service was fantastic and friendly and as a member of the waiting staff had overheard it was my wife`s birthday, they... More

A one night stop over in Darlington and my wife and I decided on a Chinese restaurant evening meal. Top of the list was The Eastern Bamboo so that's where we went. And Wow! We weren't disappointed at all. The food was excellent in taste, quality and quantity. The staff were attentive, friendly and professional and the decor subtle. It... More
