Courteous staff, excellent service and food. Desserts are really good too which is not common in Asian restaurants.

“Best Sushi We Have Ever Had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

As we spoke with some of the shopkeepers in Frenchtown about places to eat, the Bamboo House kept coming up. It was already on our radar because the owner of our B&B had suggested it, too. It was sounding like a place the locals like to go and like we might be in trouble getting in on a Saturday night without reservations - so we went for lunch instead!

At first, the underwhelming décor concerned us (had the building once been a pizza parlor, we wondered). We just could not imagine what all the fuss was about - until our food was served.

We ordered things we have had other places and things we have never seen before. All were delicious. About half way through the meal it occurred to me - this is the best sushi I have ever eaten. Happy.

“Awesome food and friendly staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I never expected to feel welcomed and a like a regular at a Japanese/Thai/Chinese restaurant, but Bamboo House really does a great job of making a night out a special night out; they make you feel like you belong. The food is well done and consistent. They cater to our special needs like nut free and gluten free. The sushi is delicious, and the speciality rolls like the HA HA roll inventive and flavorful! We always look forward to dining out at the Bamboo House.

And don't forger to try the ginger ice cream!
