Bamboo 52 shows that putting sushi together with a club-like atmosphere with signature cocktails and a patio goes over quite well in New York City. It�s a popular nightlife spot for friends to meet up because having light snacks is perfect then and sushi fits the bill.
Bamboo 52 has a decent sized menu with sushi, signature rolls, classic hand rolls, samurai boats and even a few entr�es for when a heavier meal is needed. A specialty at Bamboo 52 are the love boats, including one with 18 assorted sashimi pieces and another with 12 assorted sushi. Be sure to check out the half-priced choices during happy hour.
The sushi here is good for the price. It's good quality, but not trying to be super fancy. Not only that, we did the Groupon deal and got a lot of food (and saki) for the money and everything we had was good. We especially like the dessert, which was the Mochi ice cream. The service was very fast and friendly. Table space was a little tight, but typical for the neighborhood. My partner and I would go back.
Poor quality sushi. Salad was old.
Great find. excellent service food was good. A hidden gem
Best happy hour in all of Hells Kitchen, not to mention their incredible sushi rolls! Will definitely visit again!
Restaurant seems focused on their Happy Hour, which seems to run all day. The sushi was very good, but the loud music, uncomfortable seating and haphazard service more than offset the positives.
Stopped in by chance. Great little find. Big bar. Nice dinning area. Has outdoor patio in the back. There is a private area for parties. Nice menu. Specials were good. Nice presentation and service.
Great little shushi place. Has an outdoor patio in the back. The ambiance was a great touch for dinning at night. The menu was simple yet had some different combinations and creations. The service and presentation was cool. The manager checked on us to ensure we had a good experience. Menu was reasonable priced. The bar was pretty big and fully stocked. The smaller shushi bar is great for quick eats. Check it out if you get s chance.
We had early reservations and the restaurant was mostly empty. The loud techno-disco music was being played so high that conversations were impossible. We ended up leaving before we ever ordered food.
The sushi is always good and the servers very nice and friendly.
New staff being trained are spot-on.
The sushi is always good.
Since it's a bit off of Broadway, it doesn't feel as touristy as other Times Square restaurants. Sushi is good and plentiful. Service, was quick, but we were one of the few people in the restaurant. Overall, a good experience.
I have shied away from Sushi since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease due to hidden ingredients in sauces, etc. but I thoroughly enjoyed Bamboo 52. Sushi chefs can only influence the taste of a few things, rice being one and the rice here is amazing. Server knew what I needed to avoid and had chef prepare dishes I could eat. I only wished they had a bottle of gluten free soy sauce.
I wish I had more amazing things to say about this place, but it was average. I also went on new years day evening and we sat where it was cold and blah blah sob story. In the end, the food was decent and worth trying.
Great food as always! Thank you!
very east going place good place to fuel up before or after theater. given exceptionally long happy hour a good place to get a pop or two
The host/waiter was downright hostile. What is a surly person doing in a service job?? We couldn't wait to get out of there. Rude, rude, rude.
VERY WELL DONE. EXCELLENT FOOD. FRESH SUSHI AND WELL EXECUTED AND PRESENTED.
Always good! Fresh seafood, great service and excellent bar choices.
Small storefront restaurant with NO atmosphere. Half the seats were small, cushioned ottomans without any backs which were extremely uncomfortable. The sushi was mediocre. I would never go back.
Greer service and nice people
Friendly staff and nice cocktail. But meal started with soggy tempura (which is pretty unforgivable for a Japanese-style restaurant). Sushi rolls thereafter did not sing with freshness.
