Nice local, very good service and food. The portions are on the big size so don’t be fooled like in other Japanese restaurants where the portions are small. As a suggestion, the sashimi could be a little thinner for my taste. Other than that, perfect.

We had a most enjoyable dinner here on the recommendation of our Panama travel agent. The Restaurant is very modern and the atmosphere and decoration lovely. We dined outdoors on the terrace, a real treat with the lovely breeze and warmth. The music was hip and not too loud.
The menu and wine list are extensive with many Thai and Japanese choices. While the food was very good, only a few dishes were exceptional. One was the spicy tuna maki roll. The tuna was nicely spiced served on top of a rice roll with vegetables. The mango salad was tasty and a generous portion. I’d had preferred a bit more heat in the form of chilies. On the other hand the seaweed salad was ordinary, no better than what I’d buy at Costco. The portion size was ridiculously small for the price.
We enjoyed an Argentinian Malbec Reserva for a reasonable 30$.
In terms of food, I’d rather have rated this 4 stars. But the lovely setting and outstanding service deserve my exceptional 5 stars. Many thanks to Angel, our young student waiter. Your service was outstanding and your recommendations and ease of speaking English made our experience memorable.

It was int interesting to find a great Japanese Fusion restaurant in Panama. Among amazing local Delicacies we found this jewel, Bambu, serving awesome Sushi great wine selection. But really the stars were the servers great knowledge of their products, always smiling, phenomenal customer service. When Panama City, Panama, and not knowing where to go visit Bambu... you not regret and I highly recommend it!

The appetizers were ok, expected a little more. Service and ambience was good. Main dishes were tasty. I recommend the mixed fried rice and the sea bass with the mango sauce.

The place is amazing and every dish is to die for. It is rare to find a fusion Asian that has good starters, good main dishes and yes......good deserts! Every dish is a surprise ( a good one ). The wine list is complete.....and service good. Just be careful with the prices.....a good bottle of wine is 50 dollars.....more than all the dishes......but in the end worth it!
