    We waited a long time for initial service & had to get up and get glasses for our byob wine ourselves. Once a waiter came (it took >30 min) things progressed in a timely fashion. Food was excellent.

    Very friendly and efficient servers, delicious, inexpensive variety of Korean food. The ambiance can be improved to make it a more pleasant dining experience that I, for one, would be willing to pay a bit more for.

    We went to BamBam for their customer appreciation buffet, and I’m so thankful because it gave me the opportunity to try other delicious foods from their menu that I wouldn’t have. And, because it’s BamBam, EVERYTHING was delicious! Especially the spicy tuna roll. I love that there’s now sushi on the menu!

    Bam Bam added sushi to the menu!!!! Their sushi, sashimi, and rolls are extremely high quality. We’ve eaten at fancy sushi restaurants around the country and Bam Bam’s sushi rivals the best of them. Go! Meanwhile their Korean fare remains authentic, tasty, and nourishing. Quality all around.

    My whole family loves Bam Bam! The food is delicious (try the bibimbop, sweet & spicy stir fry and soups!) and the service is great. Lunchtime is a great deal and takeout is really well packaged to go. One of the best casual options in Ardmore and the Main Line in general.

    We’ve been to Bam Bam a few times on the weekend. The food and service are always great. The Korean pancakes are consistently good, as are the fried mandoo. One thing that surprised me this visit was the very small amount of rice in the bibimbop. Normally there is plenty, this time almost none. I’m sure they would have corrected that if I had asked. Other than that, we all thought the lighting was too bright and would have been much nicer dimmed a bit. Minor complaint. Overall a great experience.

    We went during Ardmore's Restaurant Week and maybe that colored our experience? We thought the food just OK, the service was very good and accomodating, and the price during Restaurant Week was fair. We don't think we'll be back.

    Unfortunately, we had a mixed experience at Bam Bam Kitchen. Our service was very good, and the servers were attentive. The primary disappointments were the food and the cost. My wife ordered a tofu/kimchi dish that was underwhelming. Her biggest frustration was that the tofu appeared to be served straight out of the package. My food, while very good, seemed a bit overpriced. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll be returning for a while.

    Almost hate to write this review because then I'll have to share this gem with the world. But I want this place to stay around for a LONG time. From the door, we were met with stellar service. And the buzzers at the table for your server, water, questions, check? Brilliant fun feature (just keep the kids away). With a bit of K-pop in the background, my palate earned a treat of delectable, pleasing flavors. Having a punky tummy, I opted for nothing above a one chili rating, and it was perfect. Asked for low sodium foods ahead of time and they made such a provision. Nothing was greasy. Piping hot plates every time -- unless it was a cold dish, and then it came at the perfect chill temperature. Great portions for the price and with the freshness you want -- all served with smiles, recommendations and care. A new fave has been discovered in Ardmore!
