When traveling my husband and I we rely on Trip Advisor because we appreciate the guidance we get from the reviews. With all due respect you really don't know when a hotel employee gives you a recommendation because it might be a restaurant that belongs to his brother-in-law's sister's husband!! Well once again we consulted Trip Advisor when we were... More

We had dinner at Bambu on our way to San Francisco. I used Trip Advisor to find a restaurant and chose this one. The experience couldn't be better. When we got there the place was packed and the hostess asked if we had reservations, we explained to her that we were just driving by on our way to SF. She... More

Wow, what a great little surprise. Tucked away in a strip mall on the edge of Medford this great little Asian Fusion restaurant has it all. Fantastic food and a great staff. It doesn't get any better. Everything is fresh and delicious. The Thai coconut soup is a great choice for 4 people to share as an appetizer.

While in Medford for business we ventured to Bambu as the meeting venue. I have to admit I had very low expectations, especially coming from great Japanese (Bamboo on 23rd) and Vietnamese (Luc Lac) in Portland the night before. Did I mention that Bambu is in a pseudo strip mall location to boot. Anyhow, I was pleasantly surprised by the... More

This has been a consistent go to place for years. The chef stays the course and keeps the cuisine varied and tasty. The only drawback is the need to make reservations...so plan ahead. Lunch and dinner are busy. You can seat either at their counter if the tables are full but count on a wait. The meal portion size is... More

The food at Bambu is always carefully prepared and fresh. I love the open kitchen floor plan! The restaurant is small and nice and cozy, but can get a little loud. I've always had excellent food and service when I have gone there.

We visited Bambu for dinner with a few office colleague during a business trip to medford. The ambiance grabs you the moment you enter - it's was something about the open kitchen floor plan in this Asian themed restaurant - the aroma, the lighting and the the panache with which the chef was converting fresh ingredients into amazing entrees- felt...

A few weeks ago my husband and I decided on Bamboo for our once every 3 months dinner-out splurge. We arrived about 5:30 p.m.with plenty of empty tables for the couple in front of us, our-selves and the foursome that arrived shortly after. Each of us were told that they had guests arriving within the hour that had reservations so... More

We've dined here regularly over the last five years. The fresh fish choices are always perfectly prepared & presented! The Indonesian barbecued lamb is amazing! (We did have one disturbingly light portion during a recent lunch visit, however, overall this place continues to amaze!) We don't eat dessert but have noticed tempting, artistic desserts being delivered to other tables. Service... More

This place is the worst place I've ever visited. The food isn't bad, but it's not great either. You pay too much money for such a little amount of food. Went there with a group of 4. Nobody enjoyed our experience. We got ignored by the hostess who ignored us and seated others for about 15 minutes, until I spoke... More
