We went at the recommendation of my daughter - and we not disappointed. In fact - they do an amazing fusion of flavors and separation of tastes in all the dishes we tried. Truly a unique restaurant - expensive but well worth it.

This smart modern restaurant is in the basement of 'The Hotel'. Really good quality sashimi, the best beef dish plus many other options. Sushi just OK as the rice would not have past muster in Japan!

Chef Andrew Clayton and his team at Bam Bou DELIVER a fantastic dining encounter at one of Switzerland's (and Europe's) best hotels, The Hotel, in Luzern. Try the Dancing Beef, the Seared Tuna or any and all of the various sushi and sashimi entrees on the menu. The wine list is extensive and well-planned per the menu offerings. Bam Bou... More

Being from a country where cod is the main national dish, Portugal, I was really petrified to know that I tasted one of the best cod dish of my life.

Reliably good food here, with good service, at normal Swiss prices for high end restaurants (think central London prices). Good quality sushi, sashimi and other delights are available. And then a menu which somehow spans Swiss and Asian cuisine - but it works and means there's something for those that don't want truly Asian food.

Located in the basement of "The Hotel", this modern Asian fusion kitchen has been a very pleasant surprise - the open kitchen lets you visually participate in the preparation of your meal. The restaurant offers a great variety of seafood, but for the "carnivores" a splendid prime beef is available. The wine fridge is very well equipped and caters the... More

We are always very well received at Bam Bou, the service is really 5* and the food and wines really good - last time I went I tried the Short ribs (delicious) and crab cake (exquisite) all this with a awesome red from Juan Gil in Spain, I'm definitely going back!

Lovely, high cuisine and pricey; yet, stylish, epicurean and excellent service. The waiters and sommelier are equally as impressive in wine and food knowledge. Undoubtedly one of the best addresses in Lucerne.

Description
East meets west Do you believe modern French cuisine or Asian traditional cuisine, going back to ancient times, deserves to be crowned king of culinary art? We have set a delightful precedent in dealing with this issue once and for all at the Restaurant Bam-Bou. The fusion of cuisine at the Bam-Bou masterfully and boldly borrows from the best of both worlds and conjures up culinary experiences using this approach, thus creating a whole new style for the taste buds that is just as impressive as the stylish interior you see before you. And what do the experienced gourmets make of it? Well, it's 'formidable' according to Gault Millau, who awards 15 points.
