I thought we pulled up to The Bamboo Restaurant only to see the renovated interior & the business name changed to Takara Asian Bistro and Sushi Bar! Arriving at 5:45pm on a Friday we were able to park immediately outside the front entrance. The restaurant...was empty. Service was fast and the manager answered all our questions pertained to the menu. The crispy snapper however, DID NOT come crispy. It was served over a bed of mixed vegetables with a sauce over it. My steamed broccoli/shrimp was PERFECTLY cooked & came with 8 medium sized shrimp! The strips of beef with red peppers/onions was suppose to be spicy but my partner requested it to be as mild as possible and they did comply. What a surprise to receive a complimentary ice cream dessert! I guess when you compliment a businesss on what they're doing well & also explain your displeasure politely on something they could improve upon an overall positive outcome may occur:). We will definitely return the next time we're visiting the area. Prices are moderate. Two hours later, by the time we were leaving, the restaurant was almost full.More
