Bambu has by far the freshest food we have ever encountered from an Asian place that deliveres. The regular spring rolls & mango spring rolls with peanut sauce are to die for!!!! The other selections that we have tried are good too (sesame chicken, spicy chicken & chow mae fun) however portion wise for entrees...they are small in our opinion... More

This restaurant serves many different types of Asian cuisine including Thai, Chinese, Japanese, and Vietnamese. We tried the pad Thai and basil tofu stir fry. Both were quite good and the portions were quite good for the price. They have a 1-10 scale with regards to how spicy you want your dish. We both picked 8 and were disappointed about... More

This restaurant is on a strip near Maplewood Mall. The food was excellent overall. A large varied menu including Japanese, Thai and Viet options. Vegetables are treated with care and respect. I was looking for a spicy meal and ordered the green curry near the hot end of the scale and was very happy with the food. Others ordered nigiri... More

I have been going here for years. There is a large menu to choose from. For the vegans in our family, the mango spring rolls are always a favorite. We have tried all of the curry dishes and have been pleased. They even have gluten free options too. Easy way to keep everyone happy.

I've eaten here a number of times over the years and have generally been disappointed. While the food has been tasty, the portions I've usually received were seemed to be small for the price being charged. I think there are better places to go for asian food.

On our first visit to Bambu we were pleased to see several offerings on the menu listed as available as vegan. We chose 2 of those entrees and were quite pleased with the food and service. Speaking with the waiter, he said they could make many other menu items vegan if requested. On our 2nd visit we spoke with one... More

We enjoyed a nice lunch since we were in the area. Spring rolls were fresh and good. Curry could have used a bit more spice. Pho with meatballs was a new dish for my husband. He liked. Nice server, clean place.

I had spring roll and the tum yum soup. It tasted just like my parents cooking. The only downer was the food was super expensive. For one spring roll, was $4 and a small bowl of soup was $7.

The service was prompt but didn't make me feel rushed. The food was excellent. Vegetables and meat in meal cooked perfectly. They serve jasmine rice which a lot of Asian restaurants have stopped doing. I like spicy. When they say something is spicy, they mean it. I will go back if I have the chance.

The people are excellent and offer great service! When we were there it was almost completely empty. They have a big gluten free menu which was an awesome surprise! I can understand why so many people see it as a good option for the area which I would agree. The food was good, we had the mango spring rolls, curry... More
