Great food. Owners are very kind and welcoming. Did not have time for desert but definitely will go back if I ever visit UK again.

This is my second visit to Bamboula and their culinary delights did not disappoint. The ackee and saltfish was exquisite, and the homemade ginger beer is the best I've ever tasted! Decidedly my restataurant of choice whenever I'm in Brixton going forward.

I came across Bamboula on the internet, whilst researching a location to take my sister for dinner, on her birthday. A mid point between us threw up Brixton. We met and made our way there. The setting is relaxed and has a unique charm. The service was prompt, the food was excellent and the price was right. I will go again.

This is a little gem - the menu is concise and very well priced. All starters are £5 mains £10 and sides £3.50. The food is beautifully cooked and imaginatively presented. The portions are generous. We had a lovely evening here - the staff are friendly and attentive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Top tip - try a cocktail we had dark and stormys - wow!

Can't say enough about Bamboula Caribbean Restaurant. The service was great and the food was AMAZING. My friends visiting from the States couldn't stop raving about it. Would definitely recommend.

Very attentive staff. Really nice chilled vibe within the restaurant even an outside seated area. Had several laughs with whom i think was the Restaurant Manager. Food was very well presented and the flavours were lovely. Melt in your mouth chicken was very memorable. Would definitely recommend and will visit again.

Very friendly service. Waitress/Waiter were lovely and willing to explain any option. They were also willing to help with dietary requirements. Food was flavoursome and we'll portioned and the wait was not long despite what we previously heard. The menu is a little confusing but they are already working on this and bringing a new one in shortly.

I visited Bamboula for lunch with a friend and found it to be the perfect place if you want good food that is filling at an affordable price. The staff are very polite and the atmosphere is lovely. I would definitely recommend it.

The staff are the highlight. It's a small seemingly independent Caribbean restaurant serving a good small selection of standard Caribbean fare. But the staff are lovely smiling easy-going people. I'd go back to see them. The drinks selection is good too. It's a restaurant worth supporting.
