It had been approximately one year since my wife and I had been to Blue Bamboo. We went with another company who had heard of it but had never been. We were greeted at the door with a smile and taken to our table. The waiter was there very quickly with a smile and friendly banter. My wife order Cosmo... More

Outstanding service and unique Asian menu. Seven of us for business luncheon. Each ordered different items. Presentations superior and tastes even better. Comfortable, relaxed quiet space. Full bar available.

We have dined here more than once and know the menu well--which is why it is always such a treat and delightful surprise when Chef Chan does "special" menus--which can be seasonal, holiday related or just thematic. Currently he is offering a selection of meatless dishes which really would not be my thing but he knows how to make meatless... More

Service excellent. Food quite good, had the tuna. Well prepared, slightly salty sauce. Conference room is quaint with wine bottles on walls.

We love Blue Bamboo and Chef Dennis Chan! No matter what you order it will be delicious and memorable! In fact, instead of ordering off the menu ask the chef to "feed you" and be surprised! We often do this here and love whatever he cooks for us! Make sure you save room for dessert especially the homemade sorbets! Service... More

I haven't had service like this in a long time. They were so friendly and always made sure we had what we needed to enjoy our meal. The food was brought to us quick and looked beautiful. The duck was one of the best I have ever had! We will be going back!

Each time we eat at Blue Bamboo, we think it cannot get better than the last time, and each time Chef Chan creates an even better dining experience! We started with the Dragon's Whiskers and the Crab Rangoon. We could make a meal of just these. For the main course we had the Canton Duck and the Pork Ribeye. The... More

We had an impromptu dinner at Blue Bamboo recently. Being November, they had a seared turkey entree - it was excellent. Tender turkey breast meet and dressing cakes! We also ordered a tofu dish that was made to my special request - basil tofu. Excellent flavor! Danny Chan, owner and chef, was there and cooked for us himself. It is... More

Chef / Owner Dennis Chan, thankfully has stayed put for the past ten years - when the restaurant business ganged up on St. Johns Town Center. I am so glad he did - and you will too. Dining at the Blue Bamboo is a friendly and personal experience - with multiple rewards. I recommend that you go often and give... More
