'Chuffed and Stuffed' review for Bamboo Shoots.

“Chuffed and Stuffed” review for Bamboo Shoots. “They have an open kitchen and you can see how the chef deals with our food”.

It is getting great reviews for good value and for the food being “fresh, tasty, light and generously portioned”.

Bamboo Shoots opened in October (in the  premises that was previously Quarks Internet Café) and proprietors, Dennis and Alice Hayler, say: “We are the place to come to if you want a quick, affordable, tasty, healthy lunch.”

The staff are part of a small team and very friendly. Dennis says that he looks for the most dedicated and dependable people, full of initiative and intelligence and for those who want to give great customer orientated service.

Again, if the reviews are anything to go by, he is undeniably succeeding.

The menu is healthy and varied. It is based on Dennis and Alice’s extensive experience of working in Asia. Dennis says: “This has fuelled our passion and knowledge of Asian cuisine and our desire to offer it to others.”
