    Great happy hour. Sit at bar & get to know staff. Really friendly. Also, one of few bar stools that has a back!

    Some of the best sushi in portland hands down

    Sit at the sushi bar for faster seating and watch the magic happen.

    Doesn't look like much but such good fresh sushi

    Mafackin' ahma ebi done blissfully right and amberjack nigiri straight to my vein. This tastes like sushi should, and it's sustainable so my white guilt feels better.

    If you can digest food despite a raging 'tude from the staff, kudos. Condescension comes complimentary at this "green" eatery. They charge a fee if you consume too much oxygen during your meal.

    You cannot go wrong here. Edemame included!

    Get the Green Machine sushi roll with albacore

    Pavel Gerega · March 6, 2014

    First sustainably farmed sushi restaurant. The Green Machine Roll is hands down my favorite. If you like Miso Cod, theirs is great, but very rich, so save it for the last course.

    Although the wait is equivalent to picking out each of your armpit hairs one by one when you finally get your food you may have an apparition of god.

    We sat at the sushi bar with our freshly made cocktail of the day & ordered the chefs choice sashimi & shared it between 2 people & if this was your last meal - this would be it, said my friend.

    House on fire mackerel, shishito peppers, wagyu burger, and the chocolate cake are all awesome.

    Green Machine is the best roll I have ever eaten - no lie. so delicious!

    Bar drinks were less than stellar. Ordered a simple dirty martini that had the smallest olives in Portland!

  • Cory B.

    Had a "flaming hole" roll that was so NOT flaming! Liked the sushi, but Bamboo certainly likes themselves with the high prices! Good, but not with the long wait to get in.

    It may sound crazy but they have the best burger in town. Kobe beef, egg and bacon. All I have to say is wow!!

    For vegetarians, you can't go wrong with the Green Machine and/or 310 rolls.

    Albacore carpaccio -- that's where it's at.

    Vivian Nguyen · July 31, 2011
  • Noah K.

    Spectacular sushi on a whole other level from anything you've had before. Order flights of fish or any of the specialty rolls. Their tuna and salmon are to die for. But the planet need not die either!

    Ask the chef about the crab meat sampler- sashimi style.

    Best sushi in town, sit at the bar and let the chef do the choosing for you. Besides sushi this place has the BEST patty melt, I've gone there for that alone!

    Order the Alaskan black cod. You will see God while eating it.

    Portland's "green" ethos is no more obvious than at Bamboo, the world's first certified-sustainable sushi restaurant. The Alaskan black cod is one of the top fish dishes in town. [Eater 38 Member] Read more
