Green curry is the first thing I try when I find a new Asian restaurant. At Bambu, the green curry was excellent. I was a little surprised that it came with green beans, but that only changed the texture a little bit, without affecting the...More

Had a quick lunch meeting in the area--- it didn't disappoint with very quick service. My guest had a noodle and I tried the eel bento box. Lots of food that could easily have been shared.

We often get food delivered. Love the salt and pepper shrimp, spicy fried rice and curries. It's good every time and popular with adults and kids. Sushi is good too.

We had good food (3 stars) and great service (4 stars), at a reasonable price. I recommend sticking to the Chinese menu, but I don't like food to be too spicy. My friend who likes spicy order the Thai and liked it. Nice atmosphere.

We had dinner there and I had the orange beef. it was flavorful but a little tough. I asked for a sharper knife and they did not have one. My wife had chicken pad thai and it was good.
