The ingredients are good quality. Surprisingly, the sushi fish is decent and the rice done nicely, for an Asian delivery joint. Even the (crabstick, but still tasty) California rolls.

Yummm! I can't believe I've lived in the neighborhood for so long without discovering this place. The Japanese noodle soup with udon, spinach, and a poached egg was intensely flavorful and delicious (I'd recommend it with beef). The Thai

They're all nice individuals even though their minds can often be on other orders. They have always responded quickly to anything I've requested. The prices are not low. They are fairly healthy prices and I can sometimes do a doubletake

I eat at Bambu at least once a week. I realize everybody has different tastes and different expectations, but I, for one, am extremely grateful that a restaurant of this caliber is in my neighborhood.

I have Bambu on speed-dial, as they deliver to my place--thank god! It is rare to find a great carry-out/delivery place that is actually nice to sit and eat in, as well. My favorites are the pumpkin soup, funky roll, hot mama roll,
