Not a lot of bang for your buck

Food was average and servings less than at similar resturants of this type. The 18% gratuity charge that was not itemized on the final bill I was given was definitely a disappointment. My wife and I tip at the 15% rate and expect a 18-21% for room service. Was given an itemized bill with attitude... read more

We ate lunch today with friends at this restaurant and the food was excellent. You can eat 8 together around the grill while the chef cooks the food in front of you (preferred) or you can sit at a booth and use the regular menu. I got Shrimp & Scallops and the meal was large. I ordered extra for the... More

My husband and I eat at Lampu a couple times a month. The food is always fresh, they cook right in front of you on the hibachi grill. The cooks are always entertaining and the wait staff is very attentive. Great food for the money.

Go down the street and get better customer service at kiku. Old dirty restaurant, owner has no customer service skills. The health department should come check out this place and shut it down.

We came to this restaurant with friends (their recommendation) and were not disappointed! The food was terrific! And our chef was superb and entertaining at the same time. We did wait a bit between courses, but nothing that would prevent me from coming again, but alas, Pennsylvania is a bit far from here!

What can you say about Lampu? It's been around awhile and has become a favorite place to go. Not just for special occasions, but for ANY occasion. And no one beats their white sauce.
