Great Rehearsal Dinner Space

We recently had our rehearsal dinner at Bamboo Grove and were extremely happy with everything. ?They let us reserve their back room ""Tiki Room"" and didn't ask for a down payment or anything, though we were more then willing to. ?

We chose to do it buffet style so everyone could try different things. ?Our server was Heather and she was fantastic. ?Our families can be a bit chaotic and she was able to get us everything we needed and quickly. ?They continued to bring out more food as people ate through what was out and even brought to-go boxes out when we were wrapping up so all of our guests could bring some home. ?And trust me, there was more then enough for everyone to take home lunch for the next day. ?

The back room decorations are fun and it is great for kids. ?I highly recommend having parties (30 or less) here. ?Space, food and price are great!

The food is good: most of the time. The music is always very good and the surroundings are cool. The waitresses are rude sometimes.

shhhh! Keep it a secret!

Could you imagine if everybody knew of this place. You would never be able to get a seat. Hand's down, best Hawaiian food in Portland. Sorry Noho's, but they even improved from when they were with you. Easily one of the best Lunch places to bring a friend from out of town or a friend that is unfamiliar with Bamboo Grove. All I hear from my friends from out of town is how they want to visit Bamboo Grove as soon as they come back up. Bravo and well done!

Aloha alive and well at Bamboo Grove

I'll never forget my first trip to Bamboo Grove. I was living in Salem in 2004 and missing some authentic Hawaiian grinds. A co-worker mentioned it to me so the wife and I took a trip. We were seated immediately and put at a table close to a Hawaiian man with a twinkle in his eye and an ukulele in his lap. His name is Francis and what a talented guy, full to the brim with Aloha and a tremendous singing voice. We already felt 'it' after being there for only a few minutes. Those of you that have felt 'it' know exactly what I mean and those haven't....I can only hope for you that it happens soon because it is the best feeling in the world, the feeling of Aloha. I requested a Brothers Cazimero song as my Loco Moco arrived as well as the wife's Ahi sashimi. The song was great and our meals unbelieveble. We both almost teared up as we sat in this beautiful atmosphere and realized that we had found a connection to our 'home' that we miss so dearly. I think we stayed for 3 hours that night, listeneing to the music, loosening our belts (mine at least) and talking story with one of the owners that came over to introduce himself.
Needless to say, we have been frequent guests to the restaurant even though we have an hour drive to get there. It is well worth it. We have brought friends and co-workers there and everyone just immediately falls in love with it and it's not uncommon to see them there on the nights we are lucky enough to roll in.
So if Hawaii is your home, or if you have only visited once or if you havent but still love great food and atmosphere - Bamboo Grove is the door to walk into.

Bamboo Grove No Ka Oi !! (the best)

Love on a Plate!

This place has great food and great service! I was a regular for four years and the food and drink were always tasty. The portions are generous, enough for a meal and a box to go. I moved t the East Coast a couple of years ago and haven't been able to find anything comprable, every time I'm back in town I make it a point to stop in for a bite.

Portland's BEST Hawaiian food

Bamboo Grove is one of the very best restaurants in Portland. Their food is authentic and delicious, and the atmosphere can't be beat. The staff is friendly and attentive. Very family friendly also. Some favorite dishes there: Aunties Shoyu chicken, Kalua pig, and of course Spam Musubi. And the Macaroni salad is DA BOMB. It just doesn't get any better than this! All for a great price and fantastic service. Check it out! Aloha!

just ok

I was there today for luch very busy place around 12 or so, me and the wife had portuguese sausage and eggs she had the ahi burger, well we waited for awhile which we wondered why since we were the first to order before it got busy, then when our food arrived the eggs where on the over hard side when I ordered over medium, the portugese sausage tasted like liguisa people will say that is the same but if you are from Hawai you know that it is a mediocre substitue for it, my wife's ahi burger was drenched in some sauce that made her bottom burger bun like mush had to ask for it to be changed, and what no ketchup come on, need catch up for my linguisa bra, the mac salad neva even seem cold seemed room tempeture yikes!! all in all i WOULD GO BACK, just because I like the enviroment, reminds me of the bar's in kOna

The peeps are the Grove know how to take care of you. I had my wife's 40's BDay catered for about 40 people. I had no idea how much to order and left it to the caterer's (David?) plan. Short Ribs, Spicy Chix, Kaula pork, Soju Chix, spring rolls, Noodles (my fav) and much more (don't forget the Mac). The price was incredibly reasonable given the amount of food.

We've been my on a weekend nite or two and have enjoyed the great selection of beers on tap and authentic music. I knew I could trust them for a momentous occasion like my wife's Bday.

Spread the word!!

Gotto Love the Aloha

The wait staff is always friendly and food portions are very island style (huge). The everyday menu is always great and there Kalua Pig and other weekly specials are delicious. They have music on Saturday in the back room which is when we try and go which makes the experience all that more Island style. Great mixed drinks as well.
