Lots of choices. Good for Happy Hour with kids. Sushi is fresh and sustainable. Sushi chefs aren't super experienced. Nigiri pieces slightly small. Great rolls. Lots of non-sushi options too.

Love this place. It loves you back with lovely food and audaciously creative bar/drink fare. Jane and Johnny make it a place we visit often.

I go to Bamboo Sushi about once a year for various special occasions. This year it was surprisingly terrible. The food was not good at all. Two dishes were barely edible. The lighting and music have changed over the last year which made for a much less intimate and special experience. The details matter and the fact is that many of those details are not the focus anymore, makes this place just another overpriced sushi chain.

Great food and great service! Made a reservation and still had to wait 5-10 minutes for a table so the manager came to us and gave us complimentary cocktails. Waiter was very attentive, helpful and nice. You can tell everyone is happy to be working there and it shows in their service and good. Green machine is by far the best signature roll!

We particularly like the ambience of this Bamboo Alberta location, as it feels more authentic (Japanese). The service is attentive and professional, the fish (nigiri) superb and rolls creative and tasty. And best of all, vegans can go here as there are numerous options, including some exceptional rolls.

We sat at the sushi bar and let our chef take care of us. Did she ever! The food was as beautiful as it was delicious. Every bite was perfectly prepared with no need for soy or wasabi. It was an exceptional experience.

All I can say is WOW! The Green Machine roll is WONDERFUL! And the steam bun (mine had pork belly) holy mackerel it was fantastic!! My server, Zach, was superb. I was visiting from Denver, CO and when this fact came up, he said "we have a location in CO!" I said "where?!!" - I could totally have googled that but when he brought my card back he said he looked it up for me. I can't wait to go!! Thanks Zach, I will be back to that location the next time I am in PDX!

Pretty good sushi but less vegan options than they used to have. The Green Machine with no sauce is good for vegans.

I loved the look of the restaurant - I lived in Japan for 3 years in the 1980's and it just really brought me back to some of the bars I'd gone to. We went for the burger special, but also split one of the sushi rolls, the Dragon Roll. I honestly think I could eat my weight in the Dragon Rolls! And the burgers (which we got Sumo style) were spectacular. The flavours of all the ingredients worked so well together, and the textures as well. Our waitress (sorry, didn't get her name!) was delightful.

Great ambiance in a Japanese atmosphere. Server forgot some things and took a while to get our cocktails but overall well worth it - yummy rolls and the cauliflower was delicious! We will be back.

The first time we heard about Bamboo Sushi was a video I saw on Facebook, it described how they catch the sushi fresh and ethically and me and my gf had to go try it out. We made a reservation a week in advance and let me tell ya. It was worth the wait, you see we usually eat sushi every week or so but man can you taste and smell the difference in the sushi. The food was amazing and we spent more than $100 on our first visit trying the different sushi they had. Overall it was a great experience. 50 Points for Bamboo Sushi. (Harry Potter reference)

Slow service, as if it didn't matter to the server that we were there. Food was good but didn't come out together. We were disappointed since our service at the NW 23rd location had been exceptional.

We got the green machine, sunset, and veggie tempura. The tempura was gluten free and delicious - never would have been able to tell that it was gluten free! All three dishes were amazing and the staff was super friendly and helpful - would go back in a heartbeat!

Food was great!
Drinks were very slow, we had to ask for our drinks 2 different times.
I think we might have had a new server, but they should have a bar/food runner.
We will be back.
