Stop looking and stop trying! This is without a doubt, the best sushi restaurant in town! Can't go wrong when your sushi chef is Japanese. Rice was perfect, balance in vinegar and water. Phenomenal!

I have tried sushi in many places in and out of Costa Rica and I must say this place has one of the best sushi dishes I've ever tried. Fish is fresh, portions are great size, and the owners, a Japanese lady and man are just lovely. Highly recommend this place!

Reasonable prices (3,400 colones for 6 piece California roll). Good quality fish. Well prepared. Friendly husband and wife owners.

Sushi Bambú might no be one of the regular upscale japanese restaurante which have plagued the San José scene the last ten years (they all serve the same type of food and they all charge the same high prices). Although Sushi Bambú is not cheap, its sushi is excellent and always fresh. Tsumi and Ta, the owners and chefs, are a Japanese couple who really know their business and always treat you like family. The menu is not extensive, but you can definitely tailor your order depending on what you like and how hungry you really are. I visit the please regularly and have never ever been disappointed. Highly, highly recommended if you like good-fresh sushi and would like to get away form the tradicional overpriced places!
