Bamboo Garden, Lansdown Place

Last night I tried to telephone the Bamboo Garden for a takeaway and the phone was dead.
Never mind (I thought), I live nearby and I'll walk round.
But NO - Bamboo Garden in darkness and, worse still, all signs had been removed from the windows (opening hours, menu etc).
What has happened? Has my favourite Chinese closed down? Is it being refurbished (although I would expect as notice stating same)?
Can anyone enlighten me?

The Bamboo Garden doesn't deliver and doesn't take plastic.....all the others do.
Now you can either swim with the fishes or sink like a lead balloon.....i guess they chose the latter.

If you are talking about Monday night - they are always closed on a Monday. They are still open every other night.

I had possibly the worst Chinese meal - no, the worst meal - I've ever had from that place. I can't believe that people actually pay to eat that food. God knows what your guts are like.

I can't stand Chinese food - but they do nice chips there.

Enoch - this was last night (Tuesday).
Toque - if the place were open I could treat you to a few treats!!!

Just walked past Bamboo Garden and you are right it has closed - no price list in the window and nothing but a couple of chairs inside. Definately looks as if it has closed. I will check later on in the evening and let you know.

Get a takeaway from Carnival in Fisher Street - it's our favourite, try the set menu D for 2 people. They deliver and are always prompt. Lovely!!!!!!

This is terrible news - I love Bamboo Garden.
I wonder what will happen to the premises?
I do hope it's not another "change of use from business to residential"

An Italian restaurant would be good. Lansdown Place must be at least 250 yards from the nearest one.

I used to have a prawn curry from there and no one else could make the sauce like they did I shall miss that place to. On New Years eve we treated ourselves to a Spice Merchant take away and it was tasteless and dissapointing. Anyone else like their food?

Spice Merchant's lamb shank is FANTASTIC...... But why doesn't it have its menus on the takeaway menus page
On 14 Jan 2009 at 10:11pm I liked it!!! wrote:
They seem to have been there all my life (that's quite a while) and I've always enjoyed my food from there!

I think the arrival of Yummy Yummy probably hasn't helped. We don't get our takeaways from anywhere else now. Did Bamboo Garden do delivery? All of the other Chinese's do.

No they didn't CB. Twice in the past few weeks i thought i'd try Bamboo garden as opposed to the usual Beijing (which is very nice). But why doesn't it have its menus on the takeaway menus page Firstly, i went in and ordered a takeaway and they didn't take plastic and secondly, a few weeks later i thought i'd try again and order one (this time by paying cash) but they don't deliver.
Some companies really don't help themselves do they ?

If the food is good, I am prepared to pay cash and visit in person (it also helps with working those calories off).
One of my favourite meals was special chow mein and curry sauce and quite often I would either eat it in bed or in the bath. Fantasic!
I am going to miss Bamboo Garden

Yes they are closed - I took a look last night.

tragedy - never had bad meal from there - cheap and quick - great after a few beers too - having said that who cares about delivery - or indeed plastic after a night on the lash - don't often use plastic to buy the rounds of beer either
