Modern stylish restaurant. Fusion food. Absolutely delicious and amazing food. Service impeccable; Friendly, professional and knowledgable. Lucerne prices. Circa 200 CHF per couple for starter + main + bottle of wine. Worth every single rappen !! It's that good

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.
