When the loving mum tried persuading her busy son from his hectic lifestyle with a roast dinner, he said he already had too much on his plate and it was all gravy. Take it on the chin with today’s Groupon: £20 instead of up to £58.80 for a large sharing platter for two including a dessert and cocktail each at CocoBamboo.
Nestled in the trendy hotspot of North London between Camden Town and Chalk Farm tube stations, CocoBamboo sends taste buds on a wild journey from Brazil to the Caribbean with tongue-tantalising dishes of the truly exotic variety. Groupon fans of foreign food can forage a friend and indulge in a large sharing platter. Sip on a cosmopolitan cocktail and dip into a range of sumptuous nibbles including picanha, BBQ pork ribs, jerked chicken wings and Brazilian sausage and chips for a full feast of flavours. Round off with sweet saccharine treat with a dessert each such as passion fruit cheesecake with spicy red berries coulis or Brazilian crème caramel with dulce de leite. You also have your choice of cocktail from a spiced mule (£6.50) to a Mai Tai (£7.90).

The food was well presented and service was friendly. The food is a nice fusion and Restaurant had good ambience especially when the live music starts. The fruit cocktails were yummy!

Had the gumbo to start which was just fantastic and then the jerk chicken with jerk sauce for mains. Absolutely stuffed afterwards and could not fit in one of the tempting puddings. Service was great, thye[sic] got a little bit forgetful when the restaurant got busy but nevertheless it was still great.
