Had a business lunch there this week. The won ton soup was good. The lemon chicken to share was excellent. The crispy beef was also good. Did not care for the green tea. Nice atmosphere. Good service.

My wife is Celiac and was thrilled that Bambu offered a gluten free menu. Their prices are not cheap but a couple of times we ordered her a meal. From the gluten free menu of course and after clearly identifying that she was Celiac.

Both times she became very sick from a severe gluten reaction. I had hoped the first time was just an accident but the reaction was immediate both times. If they can not provide a meal that is actually free of gluten they have no business boasting of a "gluten free" menu or failing to state their food handling can't guarantee no cross contamination. Either they don't know what ingredients they're using or they don't take celiac disease very seriously.

We will never trust eating there again, and if you have gluten allergy do NOT trust their kitchen to respect that. They have a great sounding menu, but not when it basically poisons you.

Went recently deciding to have just the appetizers, selected 5, and were disappointed with sauces which lacked "zing". The service was good and the bar has some excellent drafts from Perth Brewery.

Not impressed really. Food was just ok. Place was overcrowded and loud. Service was slow. Sushi was very good though.

Met with friends at this restaurant for the first time. We selected different items from the menu and all enjoyed a nice meal at a reasonable price. I had the General Tao chicken and the chicken fried rice. The General Tao chicken was not as spicy as I normally have at other restaurant but it was tasty nonetheless. The plates were full and warm. I had so much food, I took the leftover home for lunch the following day.
