Love this place. Tastes fresh and delicious. I've had almost everything. Lunch menu is much more affordable. Dinner can be a little pricey. I would describe this as a modern Asian flavor. Very unique tastes here but very tasty. Give the BB a shot! Sweet and sour chicken is awesome and panko fried versus that gross fluff at most places.... More

We tried potstickers, lettuce wraps, wok fried rice, fried calamari, pork egg rolls, green curry chicken soup and mango sherbet for dessert. We had PLENTY of leftovers to take home for lunch the next day. The food was phenomenal and... More

Had lunch at the Blue Bamboo today. Fine oriental restaurant with a different look. I ordered the Sweet & Sour Chicken w/Brown Rice. My brother ordered Dragon Whiskers as an appetizer, followed by Coconut Shrimp Stir Fry. Dragon Whiskers were a fine light beginning to two items neither of us had tried before. My chicken dish was marvelously tasty and... More

The duck and panko-crusted tra fish were perfection. Excellent Thai tea creme brulee for dessert. Good Asian-inspired eats!

Much nicer ambiance and total experience than I expected. We had the crab Rangoon appetizer, honey glazed Ahi and curry shrimp and grits entrée's. This was much better and quite different that typical Asian cuisine. I will definitely dine here again.
