Very attentive staff, were aware we had to be at the hippodrome in a certain time frame and had food and drink out in great time thank you
It was a bit hectic after the wedding. Staff were exhausted . Lots of post wedding chats. Didn't quite feel ready for us. Maybe it's too much for staff to do a wedding and then stay on for evening service.
Great service for a large group booking (40). Flexible and responsive to changes in final numbers, even up until the morning of the booking. Food was great, sharing platters worked well for big tables and it's helpful not having to pre-order main courses.
This was a great find. Food was clean, fresh, well priced and so tasty. Cocktails were fabulous.
Lovely food and so much of it! Great value for money and fantastically friendly staff
Nice place abit cold but cost of drinks was horrendous 3 drinks for £26
Nice place to enjoy a drink after work. Food is good and the people there welcoming
Really helpful staff, we were cold and wet when we arrived. We were offered hot drinks straight away. Thanks
Wonderful food (as always) and the service was prompt. We came for my son’s birthday dinner and he left very happy. Very tasty.
Food was great and staff were uber friendly. I do love music, but last night it was just a notch too loud, we needed to shout over one another. Other than that fab
Love the food and atmosphere here always pleased with my meal. Do think the drink are slightly expensive however, also I'd love to see more dessert options!
Lovely laid back cool and groovy place Didn’t like the food at all but it was my friends choice to eat there. Had I have seen the menu I would have eaten before I came as it’s just not my bag
Perfect venue for our work's Summer Party! Staff were very friendly and accommodating. More "spare" ping pong bats & balls are required though! The Table tennis and table football were a great laugh and went down well with the team! Thanks Bambalan!
Whilst the food was delicious and very good value for money given the huge portion sizes, the service let the whole experience down. Staff seemed inexperienced and disorganised, forgetting drink orders and not being particularly attentive given the size of the group.
Loved it and will be back! The food is always great, and 2 cocktails for £10 is a winner! Thank you.
Thank you so much to the Bambalan team for accommodating our HUGE group. They were organized, welcoming, attentive and allowed us to order at our own pace. I appreciated the flexibility as currently living abroad and it was a special opportunity to catch up with Bristol friends and loved ones. I would recommend Bambalan to anyone celebrating anything!
Amazing food - thank you!
I booked a large group (23) for my 18th as previously had good experience. As soon as we arrived we felt ridiculously unwelcome. The staff were rude starting at us and whispering to each other, pointing and staring, and just felt so uncomfertable ruining the atmosphere of my birthday. We were there for food only and were sitting civilised just talking and deciding what to eat. The manager came over before we had ordered anything and very rudely was saying if we wanted any drink we need ID which he would be strictly checking, which of course is fine but he was just so so rude in how he spoke to us, as if we were inferior and doing something wrong. The whole time we were there we were being looked over and the atmosphere was just awful. Would not go back. We just felt sooo unwelcome, even worse as it was clear it was my 18th. There was two members of staff who were lovely tho, not even waiting on us and could tell how uncomfortable we were and actually came over and apologised to us on behalf of the management teams behaviour. The food is really good but I was just really disappointed and quite upset at the way we were made to feel so belittled and unwelcome.
Excellent food, great atmosphere - really good space for a small event.
We had a lovely time, our group of 14, atmosphere fab, staff friendly & service excellent. In fact I have booked again for November with family to celebrate 2x 30th Birthday’s
Menu has changed since last visit. Not such a good range of choices, especially on the mains. Less moroccan dishes too many burgers which is disappointing. Mains had a lot of shredded cabbage or coucous with not enough of the main item (e.g. chicken or falafels). Falafels too small, dry & overcooked. Pudding choices very dull. Used to love your old menu. Good cocktails Staff still lovely.
Thank you for a great couple of hours! We loved the cocktails and the ping pong on the terrace
This was my second visit to Bambalan and I was a little disappointed. The service wasn't great. Our drinks order was lost and later it took 30 minutes for someone to take our dessert order and about the same to take our payment.
Great food and service... will be back again!
The staff were really helpful with our booking and couldn't have been more lovely. Food delish too!!
