Great Asian Restaurant

So many good dishes on the menu. I usually get the Happy Family with fried rice. I like lunchtime the best. Good amount of food for a great price. Great atmosphere. Great waitstaff. Great owners.

The atmosphere is modern but also intimate. The food is excellent and consistent. Love the vegetarian options. Staff always friendly and attentive. This is a place that you would find in the city---except the prices would be exorbitant...whereas here they are very reasonable.

The food was poor quality and the service was sub standard. It was a $45 meal that should have been $20. The only positive was a good atmosphere.

Went here for lunch. Ordered the Triple Delight with Wonton soup. It was delish & I was impressed with the reasonable price. I would recommend this restaurant :)

My husband and I went to Bambu for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was very good, seasoned so that it was hot but not so hot that there was no flavor (always a turn off with spicy food). The service was efficient and our server was friendly. We also liked the atmosphere. It was elegant without being stuffy.... More

When the first open they were outstanding. Lately they have been slipping in the quality of food, it seems that Sunday is there worst day.

Tried to get a single carryout order relatively early on a Saturday. Waited so long I actually asked them to reverse my payment. Instead I got more assurances that they work "working on it right now". Meaning what, exactly? 10 minutes later, finally got it. (Much larger order placed at same time completes 20 minutes faster) 50 minutes for 1... More

Love it! The food is FRESH, not frozen or prepackage! I have sample many dishes there and they are all great! If you go early, before the evening crowd, you can get in....but if you wait until dinner time, best to call ahead and reserve a table if there is going to be more than 2 of you. Service is... More

Great, tasty and fresh! Relaxing a atmosphere for a bite with family or friends. Service was fantastic and fast. I had the Pad Thai and I normally don't finish my plate.... Well there wasn't anything left after I was done here. It was delicious. For desert we ordered a fudge cake to share was we were reasonably full and that... More
