We selected Bamboo Bistro based on its high TA reviews. What a disappointment. I ordered "Penang" Shrimp (a dish I've eaten over 50 times in several countries), and asked the server to hold the mango as it iseemed odd and isn't a traditional ingredient. Well, neither were the 2 cups of sliced onion on my plate (what the!?), the lack... More

We had a lovely time for a group. Our criteria for choosing the restaurant were good food, quiet to facilitate conversation, and a round table, also to facilitate conversation. Plus of course it had to take reservations. Our choice was Bamboo Bistro. We went twice ourselves to check it out before selecting it for our group. Everything worked out as... More

I always have a pleasant experience when dining here. Fresh ingredients and the staff is always friendly. Jim puts out the best sushi I have ever eaten.

The Bamboo Bistro presents the best Asian food lunch specials at very attractive prices. So far I've ordered the "Wok Specials" of shrimp with moo gai pan and sweet and sour pork - both were delicious. This restaurant is well decorated and, relative to other places around The Villages, quiet enough for normal conversations. Special tip: Try the Hot and... More

The establishment is clean and nicely appointed. The staff is friendly; the service and food delivery are prompt. The food, even those dishes advertised as spicy, tends to be a bit bland for my taste. The portions are large and not overpriced. This is a place that's worth trying.

If you like sushi, this is the place to go in The Villages. In "snowbird season" it may be a little crowded in the Villages area, but this place is worth a visit for sure. My friend goes there so often that they made a custom roll for him and names it after him "the Amazing Herman Roll" .

This is a long way from home for us, but we try to eat here whenever we are in the neighborhood. The owner offers shortcut advice whenever she sees us. This has a small dim sum menu -- Chinese appetizers. Try both the pork and chicken siu mai and the shrimp and scallop dumplings. Eggplant is great, as is the... More

Depending on what you eat you are happy or disappointed. We enjoy the Dim Sum here. Although they don't come around in trolleys and have to be ordered or the varieties are limited to what one would find in Hong Kong or major cities, nevertheless, some of the selections are pretty good. Pork Shumai is soft and juicy. Shrimp Chive... More

This was our second visit to Bamboo Bistro..we found the food just okay on our first visit. A friend told us that this place was excellent so we decided to try it again. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive but the food again was just average. The summer rolls had mostly rice noodles inside and the sizzling wok was disappointing.... More
