Was brought here by a good friend and must say this was a good recommendation! The food was excellent. This restaurant is nestled in a quiet corner of Luzern inside a hotel. May not look like a restaurant from the outside, but once inside the tables are laid out very well with the eating utensils and wine glasses all neatly... More

The menu emphasizes Asian food and seafood; the quality is great and the kitchen shows a lot of imagination; the dishes are unusual and attractive; the price levels are high but it is worth it; the staff is very professional and helpful;

Went here for a business dinner with the question if Bam Bou was OK for me.... After not having visited this restaurant for a couple of years as I had some less good experiences in the past I thought why not give it a try again, as I heard Andrew Clayton, the Chef who opened the restaurant in 2000 is...

We are from San Francisco and normally would not order sashimi and sushi in a Swiss restaurant. But some friends took us here and it was amazing. Every single thing we tried from the crab cakes to the Thai curry soup to the raw fish was outstanding. Those who ordered the tenderloin of beef loved it, but the beef tartare... More

The kitchen of Bam Bou servs a very interesting croos-over food. European food in a asian way. It tasted very good and all the different tastes combined gave us a great experience. Sashimi and beef tartar, tuna, cod and beef - together with nice Italian wine was perfect.

Asian fusion food is often an excuse for overpriced and fussy food served in tiny helpings and at great expense. Chef Andrew Clayton is an American who spent time out East to our great profit since he is producing dishes of imagination and taste. He recommended we start with the starter selection - Pearls de Bambou. All good - the... More

In the bottom of The Hotel, Bam Bou caters to upscale Asian cuisine tastes. Service is impeccable. The wine selection is extensive and the food was superb! The cost reflects the quality in this case.

The restaurant is open and comfortable. The cocktails are better than expected. I'm used to having a lot of ice with my drinks and the drinks here are North American standard. The menu is small but with some interesting things. My husband ordered the spring roll to start and the portion was huge. My tuna carpaccio was very good. Unfortunately... More
