    I think for sushi the place is an ideal spot. Yes they have the classic rolls that everyone is so familiar with but they also feature many delicious combinations that I have never heard off before.

    Sushi boat is not bad. Try a dragon roll if you feel like special roll. Spicy mayo on shrimp tempra was really good. Tonight's winner for me was wasabi seaweed crisps. Like a savory snack food.

    For sushi lovers there are a few must-haves: fantasy rolls, spicy sushi sandwich, and the lovely rolls! Combinations of banana and American cheese takes traditional sushi to another level!!! Loves it!

    We ordered the spicy sushi sandwich, shrimp tempura roll, tuna sashimi & rainbow roll. Everything was fresh & delicious. Our host was fun & personable. Our waiter, Adam was VERY slow & not attentive.

    Great lunch specials 2 for 1 on all signature cocktails. Lunch special 9.95 with free glass of sake and dessert. On a sunny day sitting out back in the garden is a must.

    The Fantasy Sushi Rolls are amazing! The $5 Absolute drinks on Saturday nights are a steal! Love this place!

    Great bet for a sushi lounge. Fresh fish, imaginative rolls, not overpriced and fun cocktails. Try the Basil Pear Martini - delicious!

    While dollar oysters are awesome, they rinse off the brine post shucking under the sink before plating = raw bar blasphemy!

    Don't let the cheap looking sign turn you away - I was really surprised when I set foot inside; it's all hip and has a great ambience to it.

    My relationship w/ bamboo 52 is a failing one; I keep giving it another chance but continuously leave even more disappointed. In a city with so many fabulous sushi restaurants, I need to cut the cord!

    Since we started coming here in 2010, it's sad to say that they have slipped. The drink & food menus and service have all steadily declined. It's still "better than most" but not what it used to be.

    The rumors are true- this place is great if you have a lot of time. Service is slow and the waitstaff isn't attentive. Not worth it- go next door- Danji is amazing

    Build your own roll lunch. Bartender guy was busy all time talking with his boyfriend. Sushi rolls were disgusting and they messed up ingredients in both of them. Only good thing was free sake shot.

    The bartender Brent asked for my ID &said they ask everyone, but the guy who came after me wasn't asked. Age-ism?! Also the pomegranate mint julep was horribly syrupy. Just go for the volcano or beer.
  • Tatiana M.
    Go elsewhere, you'll be happy you did! The service was indifferent and the sushi, forgettable.
