Reviews

It was a beautiful sunny evening, so we opted for the roof terrace table option - definitely a good move. Lovely view over the harbour, and a really nice space to eat in. There was also a water station nearby that was equipped with suncream!

The food arrived quickly and was delicious. I had the Chicken 'Babs' - a flatbread with delicious red cabbage and dressing and spiced chicken - and baba ganoush, which was creamy and with a decent kick of spices. My friend had the vegan Thai Salad which according to her tasted as lovely as it looked. It was more than either of us could eat! :D

Really friendly staff, and a fun, lively vibe made for a great summer's evening out. Thank you!

Liked the place as soon as I walked in. Wish the weather was better, great balcony to eat outside and watch the world go by. The food was really tasty we both enjoyed a chicken bab and a lamb and chicken bab plus big portions. Staff were lovely always there if you needed them . Would definitely go again plus would recommend.

Spring sprung at Bambalan on Thursday evening. The service was bright, drinks fresh and the food (well the lamb at least) sprang. Thank you to all the staff.
