Very disappointed. We went to Bambou for a celebration dinner after a very special family event in London. They clearly didn't want the booking as we were a larger party than most other tables, which had just twos or threes. I booked the previous day but I was rung up several hours before to check we still wanted the booking! We were not exactly made to feel welcome and felt very pressured from start to finish. Their only concern was to get as many sittings in as possible and get us out as fast as possible. The waiters pressured us to the point of rudeness as 2 of our party were unavoidably late in arriving, and we didn't want to order in advance, asking us 3 times to order using the excuse that their kitchen wanted to get on with the meal because we were a large number. We were told to be out of the restaurant by 8.30 giving us less than 2 hours to eat a 3 course meal and coffee. I certainly expect much better treatment from a restaurant with such an address. In fact that is the only good thing about it. The food was ok but the evening was spoilt by the attitude of the staff. I would not go again. There are much better restaurants around at that price who actually WANT your business! They clearly don't care if you return or not. They must have so many people waiting to dine there that they don't have to care! Clearly, they don't give a stuff about their customers.
