Entered for the first time. Waited 5 min + for hostess, sat and left after 15 min as we were given a crazy, overwhelming menu and never did see wait staff! On the way out we were told to have a good night and then we told the hostess we did not see a waiter. She actually giggled at us at which time we said it was not funny and walked out! We walked a short distance to wonderful, delicious, reliable Milestones and enjoyed a beautiful meal, as always.

Had a very good meal, lots to choose from on the menu. The plates are big enough to share with 4 people. We had the mushrooms and Bok Choy in gravy/sauce that was very tasty, and the shrimp tempura had crispy big shrimp. The general Tao Chicken was good. We weren't sure what to order (no pictures on the menu) so asked if we could keep the menu to check it over again. To our surprise the waiter took it away and said they didn't want to get it sticky. So, we grabbed a take out menu, and brought that back to the table. P.S., If you ask for SAKI, its a giant $26.00 bottle and very (did I say very) hot. The booths are huge, you can't lean on the backrest and reach the table.

Went on a saturday night. It was busy. The owner is wonderful, the wait staff are positively awesome and well trained. The menu is expansive, I really couldn't decide on what to have there was so much. I had cold sake and sushi, and tried a few other things. I was all excellent. My second time there, and both were great. Value is really good, service is prompt, and the quality of the meal is high. I will be going again.

Heard a lot about Bambu. Finally got to try it. DISAPPOINTED!!
Not very good food. Had the Vegetable Tempura - batter was soggy and pieces stuck together. YUCK! General Tao Chicken - bland and tasteless, no heat! Pad Thai - tasted flat, no jump or spark to the flavor. Where was the tamarind? Shrimp in Lobster sauce was ok at best. Our server didn't seem to care about our table. Very inattentive. Too bad. I was looking forward to a good meal, was disappointed. Nothing authentic here, just bad North American Chinese food.
