They are currently running a ladies night special where ladies pay R125 instead of the usual R185 on Thursdays. All you can eat sushi, meaning you can eat anything that comes out on the conveyor belt. Starters and dessert included. Value for money.

We use to love Bamboo Sushi lounge as it use to be exceptional value for money. Now it's over priced, stodgy and just average. To top it off, they automatically add a 10% service charge to your bill - all they do is seat you and serve a drink - the rest is self serve buffet Sushi.

Absolutely shocking. Came for the buffet but firstly they understaffed. Secondly the staffs attitudes are shocking. The buffet allows one to order anything off the buffet menu. We tried to order but the waitress told us we had to grab off the belt. The belt has one piece of sushi per a plate instead of four. The belt also only... More

Had been there 4 times this month, generous portions, wish the buffet ran earlier in the day. VEG sushi took long on a single occasion but owner made amends.

They increased the price to just under R200 for the eat as much as you can buffet. The sushi is great, fresh ingredients and large variety. I stuffed my face and had green tea ice cream after. Looks like it will stay one of my favourite places to eat! Give it a try you wont be disappointed!

I have been here several times after the restaurant was first recommended to me by an absolute sushi lover. They offer an "all you can eat" running sushi buffet in the evenings and a wide variety of sushi a la carte during the day. The buffet is reasonably priced and of good quality compared with other sushi buffet offers elsewhere.... More

A bit of an unassuming restaurant but I had some great Sushi there! I decided to go for one of their specials and it was really good. The restaurant has a light ambiance feel to it - good for quick lunches I think!
