“Pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

A refreshing choice from the usual American fare. The food is good but not as great as the hype would have you beleive. I've eaten here at least twice and would come again.

“First visit to Bambu a very positive experience.”

Wonderful food; best halibut dinner I've ever eaten. Great service, charming waiter. A little noisy on Fri. For a romantic dinner. Oh, yes, dessert!!

“Best restaurant in Medford!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Excellent Asian fusion cuisine. The fresh fish specials are exceptional. Best matched with an off dry Riesling.

“Pan Asian done right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Bambu serves incredibly high quality food "rim food". We eat there perhas twice a month, mostly for lunch. The price is staggered, so if you order three items, you will pay much less than 3 times one item. We do this and always have a good meal to take home.
The steamed potstickers are always our first choice, and the Korean beef is excellent. Specials are exceptional. And they have a good selection of beers and ales on draft. To my knowledge there are no other restaurants in Medford area that have authentic and well-prepared Pacific Rim cusine. Tables are quite close, and there are a number of booths in this restaurant, which is in a shopping center, so this is not a high ambiance place, but it is very comfortable.Caution: reservations are essential for evenings, and helpful at lunch.

“Highest quality in the Medford Oregon area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Yes, it's hard to get a reservation. That's just because it is so good (and not in a cowboy part of town...more of a "doctors & lawyers & such" area.) Best Asian fusion we've ever had.
