Started eating here while on business about a year ago. Was blown away by the quality of the fish, and the creativity of the chefs. Each time I have been back since (save for one time) I have sat at the sushi bar and asked them to make me whatever was the freshest house speciality of the day. I've had... More

The restaurant is divided into two sections, one side with Hibachi, and the other a bar with a few tables where the sushi and fusion dishes are served. On the one hand, it is kind of a pretty place. On the other hand, I don't like having a TV on while I eat, and having to avoid looking at it.... More

Go for the hibachi - you will not be disappointed either with the food or the way it's cooked. Good fun.

We are not sushi eaters but still had a great lunch because we chose under the Hibachi part of the menu. We will definitely return.

Bambu is very pretty inside. We were surprised on a Saturday night to be the only patrons in the restaurant. We did not eat on the hibachi side and the food was good but not great.

My son turned 19 yesterday and wanted to go here, so we gave it a try. We arrived early, 5:30 PM on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was empty. We were the only 4 people at the hibachi tables, we did here some other people in a different area and I am not sure how busy the bar area... More

That's right! I said fried banana sushi! It was sooooo good. My favorite roll, the Philadelphia Roll, paled in comparison. It was so good. The service was pretty good. The only complaint I have is that the server got my mother's dessert and mine mixed up so they accidentally brought her the wrong flavor icecream. My mom didn't mind though,... More

The food, service and atmosphere are all very good here. We enjoy the hibachis in town. One is good for bringing the kids, laughing it up and getting a little crazy. Bambu is where you go when it's just you and your date for a more relaxed, quiet time.

This place has the best happy hour specials in Danbury! 1/2 price drinks and a selection of $5 apps. Friday happy hour gets super crowded - get there early or don't plan on sitting. The restaurant is nicely decorated and even has outdoor seating for the nice weather.

I can not believe anyone thinks this food is good let alone eatable. The sushi was horrid. That's not sushi its bland tasteless globs of rice and pink stuff
