“GOOD FOOD, BUT USE TO BE BETTER”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I've been a customer for almost five years......the food is good and the service is also.....like many restaurants, chefs change, money is tight and they start cutting back.....this is what I feel has happened here at Bamboo Bistro.....I still go but not nearly as often.....the lettuce wraps we're the best, but now they're just good....recipe change I think..which leads to smaller portions.....
The food is fresh and the sushi is very good and freshly made....

“Pleasantly Crafted Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Christina was wonderfully energetic and was the single-handed server. Food again was well prepared and presented. (Summer rolls, however, were a significant disappointment.)

“No bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

It's been sometime since we ate at Bamboo Bistro. We went with friends to celebrate a birthday. The food was good but nothing exceptionable. The sushi looked fresh and good and I was told it tasted good. The Egg fu yung could have used more sauce. The shrimp n lobster sauce seemed watery and the consistency of the sauce was different but the shrimps were nice size and plentiful. The mixed seafood with lobster tail and vegetables was very good. The one beef dish one person had looked good and I was told it was excellent. I do recommend trying Bamboo Bistro at least once. You decide if you'll go back. The Villages still needs a good Asian Restaurant.

“Good sushi and Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

There were 7 of us, the restaurant was moderately busy, but we had a long wait before our meal finally came to the table. The waitress explained that all our rolls took a long time to prepare. We really liked it all. We had a shrimp tempura roll, California roll, American dream roll, rock and roll, trio of spicy, Chicken wok, and a shrimp sizzling plate. It was a mountain of food, we took some of the leftover rolls home. We have been there several times, and will continue to go back. Tea, soup, soda, wine, all for $133.

“Wonderful restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Love the diversity of the food - they even have delicious, very fresh sushi. I highly recommend the Mongolian Beef Wok - everything about it is perfect! We have never had a problem with service, and consider it quite good, both friendly and efficient. The owner is very hands on and really cares about the quality of the food and the service.
