Absolutely the BEST food and service!!!!

Food and service were both excellent! Slightly disappointed in the thickness of the pork belly - would've preferred thinner slices instead of the thick ones, but the quantity was spot on. Would definitely recommend it! :)

So incredibly good. Love the atmosphere. Would give my life for another plate of the tempura green beans…more specifically the sauce that comes with them. I don’t eat seafood so I was worried I wouldn’t find anything I like, but the thai chicken salad was phenomenal.

Absolutely amazing. I can't wait to go back. We got so much food because it was our first time and we wanted to try as much as possible. We were worried that portions would be small because of the modest prices but trust me you completely get plenty of food for the price. Amazing. I can't believe we haven't been until now. Also our server was everything you'd want. Sweet, informative, prompt, attentive, and downright friendly. I wish I had gotten her name so we can request her in the future.

Meal was fantastic. The small plates complemented the sushi to make a fantastic dinner. We particularly enjoyed the pork and crisped Brussel sprouts.

We planned to go somewhere else this weekend but ended up at Bamboo per usual! Everything is always superb. It was one of the few places we went out to during the shutdown because we've always felt safe and taken care of. We love sitting at the sushi bar, so we're glad it's back open! Our favorite rolls are the Geisha, Cyclone (for a little heat ), Rainbow & Hamachi. We stick to sushi & unagi nigiri but we'll occasionally stuff ourselves with the fried green beans! Drinks: sake 75 for something refreshing BUT we're soooo excited that strawberry feels got added to the menu. You may think; "but I'm not really a bourbon/whiskey kinda person." I don't care-you'll 100% love this drink. Management is always, always top notch. Over the last 2 years, we've never had any problems and the managers continuously are on top of things. Last- the atmosphere is always fun & upbeat. Sitting in Bamboo on a Saturday night feels like a world away, but the middle of Birmingham. If you're a local or stopping through town, give this sushi spot a try!

My husband and I had the best dinner here over the weekend. The staff was so kind and attentive. The food was amazing. Best sushi and dumplings in Birmingham.

Good food, pretty average "nice" sushi. The seating situation is WAY too crowded.Would go again, since there aren't many sushi places in Birmingham, but it's not somewhere I'd want to go unless I was craving sushi.

I came here for the first time in 2 years to meet up with an old friend. When I approached the restaurant at 5:15pm the host in front of the entrance asked how many and I told him a table for 2. He then states that he has a spot for me but I’ll have to leave at 10 minutes to 7:00 due to a reservation. I didn’t think much of it, however when I entered I was the only one in the restaurant and was seated at an uncomfortable high top table beside the entrance. I waited for my friend for an hour before her arrival and ordered 2 drinks while I waited. More people were entering the restaurant although there were some empty tables available.As we were finishing our food along with our unfinished cocktails, the waitress brings our checks and shortly thereafter the owner approaches our seats and abruptly tells us that we need to close out our checks due to our seats being reserved. We were basically kicked out despite us having unfinished food, drinks, and after we’ve spent over $100.The high top table we were seated is for 6 people and we’re seated next to another party of two that were not with us.The OWNER did not offer for us to sit at another table, nor did he offer a seat at the bar. Instead we were rudely rushed out. I will never eat here AGAIN! If u want subpar food, an over crowded establishment with limited seating, and rude service… Bamboo is your spot!

Great sushi and service! The sushi is consistently fresh and tasty. If you want some of the best sushi in the Magic City be sure to make Bamboo a must eat place!

Best sushi in Birmingham and one of my favorite places to eat. Loved how the restaurant adapted to Covid.

The sushi here isn't as fresh as I'd like. Overall, Bamboo offers decent options, albeit a little overpriced for the quality.
