Enjoy 2 sushi rolls and soup or salad for only $9.95 during lunch hours only
Don't bring your kids – I tried to get a table with my wife and son and they wouldn't give us a decent table despite the fact that they had plenty of open tables. I had actually been there before and liked it but now I will never go there again.
Great Sushi – Bamboo 52 has the best Sushi! Every time I visit I am always impressed with the taste and quality of the food. The atmosphere is great! I love taking dates here, great date spot! Check out Bambo 52, you will be glad you did! Keep it up 52!
Great Mojitos!!! – You don't expect a sushi place to have great tropical drinks...but they do!! The mojitos taste just like the ones I had in Puerto Rico...and they have this volcano drink with flaming 151 rum, which is perfect for large groups. It is great for large groups, and intimate couples.
Great Food Great Fun – Bamboo is such a wonderful place that stands out in the sea of Hells Kitchen bars and restaurants. Of all the places my friends and i go we always end up there.
Their staff is consistently fun and friendly and the patrons are the most diverse in the city. It is refreshing to know there is a place to go where you can be yourself no matter who you are and make great friends with people you wouldn't find in a sea of people at cliquey bar.
The happy hour is amazing and they have everything from beer to sake. The food is cultured and there are different specials on sushi rolls daily. even if you aren't a fan of sushi i bet they have something on the menu to change your mind.
They have a DJ spinning almost every night which just makes the already fantastic atmosphere even better. Writing this review just made me decide to call my friends and see if they want to go tonight (sounds corny but i'm totally serious). Love it there and hope to meet new people soon.
I love the Bamboo – I LOVE theBamboo 52 . It's a very refreshing and cool concept...kind of a sushi bar, but not. The fresh raw bar is amazing, their entrees are awesome as well. The cocktails are really creative and wonderful and the service is solid.
I would recommend to anyone. I will be back there again and again.
DJ? – I have been a regular at Bamboo for about a year now and on Wednesday I found out that my favorite DJ is no longer spinning there.....what a disappointment! He had great music and was always able to "read" the crowd. I hope he left because he wanted to (the bartender wouldn't say) if not.....poor decision management!
Tasty rolls... long wait for service. – My husband and i went there on a Tuesday night after contemplating for what seemed like forever about where we would eat. (So many choices in the city)...
He recommended this place as he ate there before some years back.. I was very excited as the place had a nice "funky" feel to it complete with a back lounge and a backyard.. (which I love).
The only thing that spoiled our experience was that the service was horrid due to the time it took to GET service... My advice is to get more help. It seemed as though there was only waitress serving the entire place.... also the drinks were watered down with no taste.
Highly recommed the "sandwich" roll with American cheese... YUMMY.
Great drinks. – Its fun and hip.....
Great for after work. Its a large space but easy to get a seat great for large groups.
Best sushi – I have never enjoyed a sushi lounge more. Had a great time with some friends, ate fresh awesome sushi, and drank volcanos which came out on fire! It was so fun, we had a blast and it looked like the whole place was too.
Regular employees bring regular customers – I have been to Bamboo 52 several times and it's always a fun place to gather. After several weekday visits after work I took some out of town guests there a couple of Saturday's in a row. Much to my delight it was great as usual-two of their regular bartenders were there, one was our waiter: and two of their House DJs were also spinning. I've met both the DJs before and have to say both are really great. DJ Justin was playing some nice lounge music and DJ Giuseppe was playing a variety of classic jazz, old R & B and up tempo pop. Hang onto these guys they're friendly and talented. Sushi is good and the drinks are strong, I go for that but it's nice to have a familiar face to give your time and money to.
