Consistently Great

You wouldn't think you'd need reservations for strip-mall restaurant in a suburban East-Medford neighborhood--but you do! The reason is that Bambu is dependably delicious and welcoming with amazing atmosphere and a skilled and knowledgeable waitstaff and obviously great chefs.

Finally discovered the premium Asian food restaurant in Medford--Bambu. Tucked in a strip mall area, this place is sophisticated without requiring a dress code. You can come as you are--but be sure to get a reservation. We came, sans a reservation, at 5:30 p.m. on a Saturday and were told there was no availability unless we were willing to sit... More

The food is beautifully prepared, attractively presented and oh so good. We recently had a birthday dinner at Bambu. Five diners ordering a fish dish, beef dish, ribs, chicken and shell fish..all five diners loved their meal. Not an easy task to achieve. The menu is Pan Asian and on the healthy side but very flavorful. Prices are a bargain... More

The environment was pleasant (and busy) which is a good sign of quality food and service. I travel and ton and have the opportunity to try out lots of food and in different locations. I ordered the Basil crusted Mahi Mahi special recommended by my waiter Kris. She was awesome and all of her suggestions were perfect. Few suggestions for... More

An excellent choice here in Medford. The wait staff is very friendly and they know their menu well. There is both inside and outside dining during the warmer months.

Had lunch there today. They were very busy but we soon found a table. The menu is Pan-Asian and very interesting, with good lunch offerings. The service was excellent. The food was uneven. The starter rolls were very good and the baby-back ribs were excellent. The crispy fish was not crispy and perhaps the oil was not hot enough. The... More

I had one of the best dinners I've had in months at this intimate restaurant in Medford. A surgeon I know said it was his favorite and I now know why. I had the "Tiger Cries"...weird name, but excellent dish. I added the homemade potato chips...again, weird, but works. I loved the tender beef and the spicy vegetables. I would... More

We were in Ashland/Medford for the Shakespeare festival and to celebrate my husband's birthday this month. We love Asian food, especially Thai but at times it is tough to find a good fine dining Asian restaurant in smaller cities/towns. However, we had my husband's birthday dinner at this restaurant and it was delightful. Our choices were a bit limited as... More

We have dined at Bambu many times. Service is always excellent. Wait staff are friendly, professional, and have a can do attitude. Food is innovative and well prepared. I love the Asian fusion menu and the creative specials. We always order appetizer, salad, and one entrée. Then we share. Portions are generous. Suggestion: order the calamari. It's amazing! They offer... More

This restaurant never deviates and offers consistency in their the preparation of their food. You always get what you ordered and it is a favorite of mine. The only regret I have is they do not have a full bar.
