This is my sisters preferred sushi spot - location is definitely not the attraction ! And the concept of one piece of sushi per plate is not one I've seen in Joburg .. we went on a Saturday night and it was very quiet, may have been because of rugby - service was good and the belt had regular additions....

They are currently running a ladies night special where ladies pay R125 instead of the usual R185 on Thursdays. All you can eat sushi, meaning you can eat anything that comes out on the conveyor belt. Starters and dessert included. Value for money.

We use to love Bamboo Sushi lounge as it use to be exceptional value for money. Now it's over priced, stodgy and just average. To top it off, they automatically add a 10% service charge to your bill - all they do is seat you and serve a drink - the rest is self serve buffet Sushi.

We tried to order but the waitress told us we had to grab off the belt. The belt has one piece of sushi per a plate instead of four. The belt also only... More

Had been there 4 times this month, generous portions, wish the buffet ran earlier in the day. VEG sushi took long on a single occasion but owner made amends.

They increased the price to just under R200 for the eat as much as you can buffet. The sushi is great, fresh ingredients and large variety. I stuffed my face and had green tea ice cream after. Looks like it will stay one of my favourite places to eat! Give it a try you wont be disappointed!
