“Go there hungry!”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

The sushi buffet is really good value. We went with a larger group and the waiter took the trouble to rearrange the tables to accommodate us. Nice atmosphere.

“Excellent sushi take out”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Their take out prices are 50% off listed prices in the restaurant. I eat sushi quite often and these were very good, I will order again. Nice to pick up your sushi here and eat at the beach!

“Great selection. Clean establishment.”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

We usually go to "Bite Your Tongue" restaurant on Saturdays for sushi. But gave in to temptations to try this out. I was not disappointed. The restaurant itself is new and cleaned. The selections are more varied than Bite Your Tongue. For R165 per person for buffet, it is really worth the money. We went a bit early at 18h30, the nicer sushi selection only went on the belt around 19h00's or so.

The 10% service charge is already added to the bill. So there is no trying to work out how much to tip the wait staff.

They have a loyalty card. For every R150 spent you get a stamp. I think when you get 10-12 stamps you'll get R150 off your next meal.

I wish their cup of cappuccino was a little bit bigger. For R18 a cup, it is a bit expensive for espresso sized cappuccino.

“Graduation dinner at Bamboo Sushi Umhlanga”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

We were a table of four. The host/manager is very friendly and helpful.
We ate off the sushi conveyor belt and the sushi was fresh and plentiful if a little repetitious.
Ambiance/Atmosphere: a little "corner cafe" to be honest. The restaurant is too brightly lit and open for any of that 'romantic type of candles flickering and that soulful singer "strumming your face with their fingers" in the background kind of thing. Still, it's light and very bright (green to be precise) and the staff are friendly and helpful.
toilet facilities: sort of okay.
Would I go again: yes
