Recently went to Bambu. We were seated in the loud bar area without being asked, as there were plenty of tables in the other area. The sushi is average and tasted fine with smaller portions than expected. For the price of the items the portions should be a bit larger as with other competing restaurants. I don't think we'll be...

I was alone and attending my son's soccer match at the Western Connecticut State University Athletic Conference, very nearby, and I opted to call in for a late night (9:15pm) carry out order of sushi after the game. Staff were professional, prompt, and very helpful over the phone as I had trouble using an outdated menu (not their fault!). I... More

We just arrived for a week's stay working. The restaurant is across the street from the hotel so went for a quick bit. It won't be our last visit this week for certain! I had the Pineapple Fried Rice with Chicken...wow!!!

Highly recommend this place. Great restaurant environment, good service and delicious sushi. Price vary. If you want to eat a good sushi you are going to pay a little bit more. But its totally worth it!

we went for lunch and it was really great, two of us had sushi, sashimi and rolls which were very nice. Another person had a pink sandwich which was so creative, not a sandwich with bread, but layers of pink seafood to look like a sandwich. We will definitely return.

This place is as good as your good New York City Japanese. Very fresh, good portion sizes and while more expensive than other Sushi places in the area I feel it is well worth it and frankly a big step up from anything else in the area.

Bambu has excellent sushi as well as hibachi options. Food is always freshly prepared and the staff is very friendly and willing to accommodate any and all needs. I highly recommend their specialty sushi rolls, specifically the crazy tuna roll which is just simply amazing!
