“Disappointed after reading reviews”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

My husband and I had high hopes for the restaurant after reading the reviews but unfortunately we found it rather disappointing.

I will start by saying that I am not a fan of sea food. This restricted my choices greatly, as all the available starters were sea food based. My husband had the wonton soup starter, which was ok but rather bland.

The choice of main course was also limited for those who did not like seafood (Even the chicken dishes had prawns mixed in) so I chose the beef with rice noodles, my husband had the pork cooked in Cola (Motivated by the unusual choice!) Interestingly, around 20% of the menu was unavailable and was crossed out. The starter came and was ok but bland as listed above, but then the main courses arrived a minute later, even though my husband had not finished the starter. The mains were again, fairly bland (even though both were listed as spicy) and rather disappointing.

All in all, disappointing after having read the earlier reviews.

Pro's - Quick service, reasonably priced (By Bergen standards)
Con's - Large number of unavailable dishes, restricted menu for those who don't like seafood, bland food

“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Came to Bambus 33 for dinner on a Friday evening due to good write-up on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed! Had sweet & sour chicken; chicken curry and wok with beef, chicken and king prawns. All were delicious! Saigon beer was a new experience, and so tasty! The food arrived swiftly and the service was fine. If we lived in Bergen, we would come here again! Highly recommended.

“Another satisfied customer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013 via mobile

We went to bambus based on a friends recommendation and reading some trip advisor reviews . It lived up to our expectations. The waiter was polite, friendly and didn't rush us. The food portions are on the large side and all four of us thoroughly enjoyed our choices . Prices in bergen are typically on the high side so I would say they were competitive .
The atmosphere is relaxed with low music, dim lights and big windows. Be sure to book ahead as its quite a small and cosy restaurant .

“Authentic Asian food in Bergen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2013

A favourite among restaurants in Bergen. Great authentic food - ranging from lemongrass chicken to bun (rice vermicelli) or even cola chicken. Good service and decent prices.
The freshly squeezed juices are a great alternative if you are not having beer or wine.
Chairs are a bit uncomfortable but no big issue

“Really good asian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2013 via mobile

Really good, a wide range of choice. Not to expensive for norway we spent about 500kr for 2 dishes for two people.

Be carefull, its better to book a table at night, the place is really small.

Located not far from the railway station.

I recommand this restaurant
