“Very Bad Service..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Some good food, but spoilt by some very bad service, 2 hours for a starter, another hour for a main, very poor. When we complained the waitress offered us a drink, we though it would be free, but no she wanted to charge for it.

This could be a great place, especially with all of the new construction in the area and the new Novotel just steps away, but it is let down so much by incredibly bad service and waiting times.

“Design, food, energy - all combined for a great evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

I found this place in 2010 when a heat wave came to Moscow and stayed there for almost 2 months. I was attracted by a huge open terrace with a good opportunity to enjoy the wind and freshness from the river nearby. Then came autumn and winter and I still came to Bamboo to spend some good time there.

Food is really great. You can get here almost all hits from asian cuisines a bit adopted for europeans. Sushi, rolls, dim sums, rice, noodles & ramens, meat in pepper - everything is tasty, fresh and nicely served. Pick almost everything from the menu and you won't regret. I personally don't like steak tartar here and love buckwheat with sea bass - it's really something new and original. I'd advise this dish if you want to be positively surprised with tastes combinations.

Nevertheless good food is not the best driver here - it's atmosphere and design - fresh, active and really sharing energy with you tired after a long business day. You won't enjoy this design outside the main part of the restaurant (it has 1 isolated terrace and 1 fully open one), but feeling and ambience will still be with you.

Cocktail menu is really great and even cheap for Moscow - so don't forget to come here without your car

My husband got a cockroach together with his dim sam today. No more comments, just avoid this place.

“Great !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2011

It's simple to resume: everything is great !
The restaurant, as well as the bar, is very nice decorated. Cocktails served are just amazing (presentation and taste) and the food is for fine dining.
Waitress & bar tenders welcome is good and natural and you should spend a pretty good evening (or party as you wish..) if you are in the groove !

“Great place for the late evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2010

Its full of atmosphere late in the evening but sometimes is strangely empty. Really good sushi. best I have had in Moscow to date. Service is a refreshing surprise with attentive and smiling waitresses. Noisy when the music is played
