Bam Bou

About Bam Bou

Located in an elegant Georgian townhouse, furnished in French-Vietnamese style, Bam-Bou is a four-storey Asian-fusion delight with a colonial feel to it. The restaurant, in Fitzrovia is headed up by Head Chef Gary Lee whose South East Asian influenced menu combines fragrant flavours from Thailand, China and Vietnam. Head upstairs afterwards to the Lotus rooms and sip cocktails, where you might rub shoulders with fashion designer Matthew Williamson who dines here.
