I never give such a review unless the place is extremely disappointing and this one was. I went in alone, the place was empty, they were probably in a hurry to go home. The egg drop soup was salty, maybe left over. I asked for...More

Bamboo is a nice place serving decent Asian food. It's clean, uncluttered, pleasant and convenient in the center of Upper Montclair. On the other hand, the food is unremarkable: sushi pieces are too small, seaweed salad too oily (too much sesame oil), Spicy Sichuan Noodles...More

The best sushi so far! Excellent taste. Always fresh. Amazing variety of soups, appetizers, meals, sushi, rolls, Sashimi and sauces. Very fair prices for quality and quantity (in NYC it's double or more for the same amount). Would recommend it to anyone :-)

Bamboo is a family favourite, not because the food is amazing, but because it is a large restaurant that always has a table on a weekend afternoon and a wide-ranging menu of Asian favourites, done reasonably well. We usually get Chinese and Thai food, and...More
