Fabulous dinner and evening at Bambu last night. Great service and great wine, wine bottles are 10 dollars off on Friday nights. New favourite place to go out. Food is so good.

I do not easily get excited about a restaurant. I am rather picky about the food, service and environment provided by the restaurant. In this case, the Bambu Restaurant was excellent overall. We went to the Bambu Restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday. When we arrived, we were welcomed by a friendly hostess who brought us to our table right... More

I love the food, I strongly recommend the coconut curry, yummy! We also had seshwan beef, and appetizers of chicken skewers and hunan dumplings. Service was fast, staff was friendly and professional. This was my second time. I recommend recommending. Good prices for the quality and quantity; good plates.

This place is surprisingly pleasant…for a light lunch! It was good, but I was not blown away! As a former Montreal resident, I greatly struggle to not only find a satisfying restaurant that serves Asian food, but struggle to find a good restaurant in general, in Ottawa, that's worth going to! I came here for lunch with a friend on... More

I have been to multiple Sushi restaurant in Ottawa and Bambu really really has the best ones. Try the Grilled Salmon Sushi's, the Killer Shrimp or the Spider are Excellent. Chef Roby will take care of you. By the way, the Shrimp Fried Rice is also excellent.

Went for a birthday dinner with a large group and could not have asked for better service and wonderful atmosphere. The food was excellent and fresh as usual. I still find it amongst the best sushi in Ottawa but their mains are fresh and delicious as well. Dumplings, Pad Thai and tom yum soup are some of the favourites but... More

Found this place through a groupon and we will definitely be back! Kevin was our waiter and he was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. The food came out quickly, hot and fresh. You could taste the fresh ingredients and curry. Everything from apps to dessert was mouthwatering and delicious. Highly recommend!!

Visited the restaurant for a business luncheon with colleges. We ordered several dishes to share - General Tao's Chicken, Sweet and sour Chicken, Lemon Chicken, Beef and Broccoli, Ku lu Pork, Prawns with Snow peas and Cashes and a few more dishes. The prices range from $14.95 to $21.95 and the best thing is to order a few dishes and... More

Excellent service, Generous & Tasty portions. The Groupon we used included any beer on the menu, a full 20'er premium draft. The soups were made & BIG. Try not sit in the bar area as the chairs are crazy low & soft. (Good Core Workout?) It;s a big full menu but everything we noticed going by looked Yummy. We'll be... More
