“Very Good Sushi - Fresh Wasabi Too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Fresh, tasty offerings. Great menu! Ask for the fresh Wasabi - I understand if you sit at the Sushi Bar you get fresh wasabi automatically.

“Lovely Presentation, Freshest Fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

I'm a Masu fan! So getting me to try another sushi restaurant in Portland was a trial. We were staying at the White House in the NE, so a drive into downtown in the rain was challenging. We opted to try Bamboo Sushi in the SE, just a mile from the B&B with easy street parking.

We didn't have a reservation, and the hostess shared that we would have a 20 minute wait. She gave us a drink menu and said she would get us whatever we wanted while waiting. We couldn't decide on a Sake and she brought us tastes for choosing. Handled all very graciously while balancing new patrons arriving and seating others.

Our wait was more like 10 minutes. Unsure what to order, I like to toss the choice to the chef. His selection for me included a beautiful sashimi presentation of flounder with a spicy sauce, and a wonderful smoked tuna.

Sitting at the Sushi bar is fun in itself, but these three chefs made us feel like we were regulars. Their good bye is always followed with "see you tomorrow". Maybe not tomorrow, but certainly next time I'm in Portland.

“Some of the Best!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

I went in here deciding to have something unusual. We had several "small plates" and every
one was outstanding! Our server, Dana, was excellent and gave us some wonderful recommendations. This is one busy place.... we expected to have a wait for our food, but, this was not the case. My first visit to Portland and to Bamboo. Loved the atmosphere, not to big and very cozy. We"ll be back!

“Delicious, adventurous ......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

First of all I must say that it is very refreshing to eat at a sushi place that stresses sustainable quality... that is rarely the case.

We (my husband and 5-year old) went to Bamboo Sushi around 5.30pm and the place was already bustling. I was worried we would have a super long wait, but was determined to stay. We were then seated quickly cos we were at the cooking table which was indeed perfect for us because our son was intrigued with the sushi making. What fun. Then we ordered (can't remeber all the dazzling names, something "green machine" something "chase the dragon"), but the sushi was all of excellent quality and absolutely delicious. The mixtures are novel and adventurous, but really work. We all ate a lot of sushi and my son was wanting more. He loved the place. Wish we had had more time to go back there!!!! HIghly recommendable.
