My title says it all! You have to really want the great prices for good food, as the staff, as another reviewer wrote, behave as if they hate to be there. They take your order with no welcome, no smile and once it is on your table, they don't come back. Another offsetting factor: you can bring your own alcohol. Drinking helps to mitigate the awful service. :)

Came with spouse and child due to glowing reviews on tripadvisor. The male hostess smiled and seemed friendly. However, our female waiter looked like she hated to be there. She never smiled and barely spoke more than a word to us. She never offered a booster seat or a high chair. The Vegetarian General Tso's Chicken tasted dry though the sauce wasn't bad. Could use more vegetarian chicken options like sesame, kung pao, sweet and sour, orange, etc but I will give them an A for effort with the General Tso's. May still order takeout but won't bring the family anytime soon.

Forget all the overpriced places in the area; Bamboo has them beat on price and quality. Weather you are getting the sushi or other Asian Meals they win hands down. There may be a wait if you don't make a reservation, but it's well worth waiting

I love it! All the appetizers and rolls are done exceptionally well. The quality of food is amazing, and the atmosphere is inviting. By far my favorite place to go for sushi in the Lehigh Valley!

By far, Sushi Chefs Sam and Andy deliver the best Sushi in the Valley. They often try out new menu items on us and last night we enjoyed the "Bamboo Sandwich" appetizer which was over the top! I am very particular about who I trust to my sushi and these guys are the best. They are creative and will whip together perfect combinations of fish, veggies and crunch. Consistently great sushi but also great hot Asian dishes. If you are up for soup, you must try the House Special for Two. Fantastic!

Service is superb. Wait staff is friendly and owner Andy makes the whole atmosphere welcoming but classy.

Convenient to Dorney Park for out-of-towners but if you are a local and haven't tried Bamboo, you need to! Great lunch specials and reasonably priced. Enjoy!
