The food was lovey however on your website it states you are offering 50% off babs throughout January (which is the reason we visited Bambalan). We did not receive this offer as the waiter said we need to print off a voucher and fill it in. When I reserved a table and the booking was confirmed I was not sent a voucher to fill in. It does not state this on your website/social media either. Therefore we was not allowed the discount and the promotion was not honoured to reflect your mistake in advertising the offer.

I've visited Bambalan many times, usually pre Theatre to take advantage of the 20% off - this time it was a meeting point for dinner with friends. The food as always was great and came out promptly. The service was a little slow considering we were 1 of only 3 tables in there and the music was WAY too loud for a practically empty restaurant.

Excellent feedback from everyone who attended our Christmas social at Bambalan, the best in 6 years of organising the Christmas party. The food was excellent, far better than anticipated for mass catering. The only downside was a shortage of plates to put the food on, but that didn't stop it being eaten.

My visit was part of a Xmas lunch booking. The portions were very generous and super fresh and tasty. The booking process was very easy and everything ran like clock work. We were particularly impressed with the vegan, gluten free, vegetarian options and alternatives and our waitress was super friendly and informative. Highly recommend.

This was a perfect venue for our party at Christmas. The food was tasty and nicely presented. There was a real buzz in the atmosphere and we were able to dance afterwards. Excellent.

Really love coming to Bam and spend a lot of lunchtimes picking up sandwiches and salads from Little Bam. Brunch was lovely and couldn’t fault the service - slightly disappointed that scrambled eggs couldn’t be accommodated instead of poached eggs - I’m pregnant which means I can’t eat certain things and it was a shame to not be able to accommodate this dietary requirement.
