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

We decided to come here for a little sushi snack and we were glad we did! The atmosphere in the lounge was great, the sushi was tasty (the rolls were huge) and the wine was excellent. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and frequent it again if we were in the area!

The best Hibachi place in Danbury CT! This visit was my first time with my family. The staff very very hospitable and provided a great service in a great environment. We enjoyed the Hibachi. It was very entertaining and the food is good.

Tonight was the first time we ate at Bambu and I can say that it will be the last also. It was our daughter's birthday and she loves Hibachi. Please make sure you specify that you are ordering from the kid's menu if you have children with you. We came with 5 children and assumed that we are ordering their... More

Typical Asian-Fusion place. This one seems even less authentic that I didn't happen to notice any Asian/Asian-American employees. Everyone seemed to be American. I believe I could definitely notice this in tasting the sushi. It's okay but not great. They did do a nice job with the decor. Very modern and nice. However prices are definitely above average.
