Description: Mount Pleasant’s best spot for exciting Asian cuisine, sushi and cocktails has become the place to be for locals and visiting guests alike. Inside, whimsical jellyfish lights hang from the ceiling, expert sushi chefs work steadily to prepare intriguing rolls and sashimi as guests chat at the grand bar stocked with top-shelf liquor, favorite beers on tap and a variety of high-end Sake. The Lowcountry’s most alluring patio is the crown jewel of Bambu. Partially enclosed for both hot days and cool nights, patrons feel they have been transported to paradise, all the while feeling right at home. The Koi pond, open community tables, intimate booths and outdoor bar create a fun, relaxed atmosphere that is second to none. The menu is decidedly contemporary casual Thai and Japanese with other Asian influences. Don't miss their amazing happy hour at their bar all week long and a "Ladies Night" on Thursdays. Open nightly at 4pm. Dinner service at 5pm.

diverse menu -- part Japanese, Thai, Chinese. okay for a suburban place. For is good, not great. Too salty. Huge portions. I'd go for lunch but not back for dinner. Horribly slow service.

This is a very upscale and nice, though not expensive, place to have good asian food and sushi. They also have a nice outdoor eating and bar area. Consistently good food.

Had the duck confit spring roll but there was no meat in it. Then the spider roll which was small and overcooked. The fashion sushi was ok but didn't taste very fresh.

We had a coupon so decided to give Bambu a try. I had read mixed reviews, better after the management change in 2013. We went for an early dinner and had the most incredible meal. The Potato Roll (tempura shrimp, avocado, cream cheese roll wrapped in shoestring fried potato) was unbelievably good. We also had the Edamame & Spinach Dip with wonton chips. and Duck Confit Crispy Spring Rolls. Main course was Beef Bambu Bowl (Sliced rib eye with ginger soy, chicken with teriyaki) and Pad Thai. Desert was Cheesecake spring rolls. We were impressed with both the food and the service. The food was the best I have had in any restaurant. We will definitely go back.

We had lunch here over the weekend. I had the California Roll and the Shrimp Tempura Roll and my husband had the Chicken Katsu. Having lived in Japan we found the Katsu very traditional, but would love it if the meal would consider some Japanese style curry with it. (A very traditional winter meal in Japan). I do want to go back to try the dessert menu. There was some sore of cheesecake wrapped in eggroll wrapper and fried???? Sounded delicious, and there are plenty of other things to try as well!
