good rolls marginal sashimi

The maguro sashimi looked like my 5 year old cut it with a plastic serrated knife. Very bizarre. The flavor was fine but cut was bad. The sushi rolls were very good. Similar to one of the better CA sushi joints. All the usual rolls. If you want better sushi, try Tsunami only a few miles... read more

The sushi is awesome and fresh and the sesame chicken is to die for! We also had the sea bass fish tacos and the raw tuna tacos. Both very, very good!

We were pleasantly surprised to find Bambu in the Los Sorentos Marina. A welcome alternative to the mediocre food at the neighboring Marriott resort, the selections and presentation were very impressive. The wait staff was very helpful in making recommendations and the food was delicious and prompt. The wine list was good. Choose an outside table facing the Marina, the... More

Loved both our meals at Bambu. For dinner, we sat at the sushi bar and had a great time watching the chefs prepare the various rolls and dishes. The presentation of every dish was beautiful. The chefs were friendy and entertaining and even recognized us when we returned for our second visit. The service was really good though sometimes lacking... More

We went fishing and caught 3 large tuna. Brought some to Bambu to be prepared for dinner that night at recommendation of our captain. He did not steer us wrong. Fresh tuna was prepared 3 ways (tuna poke, tuna sushi rolls, and grilled tuna steaks) and each was delicious and beautifully plated. The menu otherwise is quite extensive and prices... More

Bambu is a nice Japanese restaurant with the same owner of all restaurants in Los Sueños. Good quality but with a good appetite you'll spend more than 100$ for the both of you. Good service.

Do not expect this to be like any asian food you are used to. I did liked the Red Curry Chicken Soap, but no one else in my group liked their food. The Sesame chicken for example is not like anything you normally get. It is a full fried chicken breast with sesame seeds in the batter.
