Bamboo Sushi AYCA Northvale NJ

michele cindy Feb 19, 2012 06:26 PM

I've been to a lot of AYCE sushi places, and this is one of the best I've been to yet. They just opened 1 week ago. It's $25.00 on the weekend and $20.00 during the week. You can order cooked dishes off of the menu as well as the sushi. They even offer sashimi on the AYCE. Everything I ordered, salmon, tuna, mackerel, we very fresh with a good firmness you look for, not the mushy stuff I've encountered at other AYCE places. The eel was especially good, they crisp the edges which gave it a nice bbq finish. One other good point, it's BYOB which is a nice savings. It's located in the same strip mall as Apple Bees and Starbucks on RT 303 aka Livingston St. in Northvale. The staff were also great as well. If you plan to go there is a 15% off coupon in the Our Town, and a few other local publications. I wish these guys well!

    Did they re-open under new ownership? A sushi/Japanese place called Bamboo has been in that location for a few years now, but I thought they closed.

      They kept the same name, but it's now under new ownership. Not sure why...

        Well, the other place was terrible. I won't post a review of it here because it's now a different restaurant. I would've chosen a new, different name to avoid confusion.

          Totally agree with you. Was it AYCE back then too?

            Not sure, we ate in the restaurant part. Sushi was up front when you walked in, restaurant in the back area.

              I haven't tried the new place but the old place was not AYCE.

                I'm going to go again. Next time I need a sushi fix. As mentioned above for an AYCE it is better then the others I've been to.
