I was turned on to this wonderful restaurant by customers of mine who know we love Chinese food and miss going to NY's Chintatown dumpling houses. I was put on the mailing list and received a message that Sunday would be "dim sum Sunday". They only open once a month on Sunday and as we are only closed on Sundays... More

We decided to try this Restauraunt because we read the menu on open table and it was very appealing as it was not your traditional Chinese restauraunt. We were seated by a lovely and attentive member of the Blue Bamboo team. Heather knew the menu so well and made recommendations based on our likes. We had the egg rolls. Very... More

We were passing through Jacksonville on our way to Miami and stopped at this Asian restaurant per our friend's recommendation. A nice surprise. Great, fresh Asian food. The menu changes monthly. We had the honey garlic shrimp, fried calamari and red curry shrimp and grits. Great flavors. Wine is served in sizes such as half-glass, glass and "woovy." I got... More

My family and I were in the Jacksonville area and wanted to grab a bite to eat. Since I am a celiac it can get a little complicated. I looked in my trusty GF restaurant finder and came across the Blue Bamboo. Well, I can honestly say we found a gem. As we walk in we noticed the place is... More

From the relaxed, yet elegant surroundings, Chef Dennis made this night a wonderful dining experience. Service was perfect (thanks Heather!), the food was impeccable and all was reasonably priced. Most definitely a place I will recommend to all the locals and traveling visitors.

We really wanted to like "Blue Bamboo" and took our son with us for the first (and only) visit. The restaurant is very nice, decor lovely and service was outstanding....however, we came for the food... We had an appetizer of "Dragon Whiskers" which were very tasty ... Then..I had Kung Pao Tofu...very bland and Tofu was mushy. My husband ordered... More

After the soup and salad course we waited 30minutes for the entrée and were reassured it would be right out. After 45 we asked for our bill and paid it and left. It's the first time in our life my husband left a one penny tip. And it wasn't as if they were slammed ~ a gentleman came in after... More

We returned to Blue Bamboo this past week as we were returning from a long trip. We had a wonderful full meal here the first time we visited. It was just as great this time. We did mainly comfort food this time. We had for starters the Dragon Whiskers as usual and the 5 appetizer sampler which consists of 1... More

Last night went back to blue bamboo restaurant for terrific experience . We started by sharing an assortment of delicious appetizers...The Tuna Ceviche, Dragon Whisker's, Calamari, Duck Wanton, Panko Fried Tomato's all delicious. We then decided to split three different entrees. I thought the Talapia had more flavor then I ever had before. We finished up with their homemade Mandarin... More
