Fodor's Expert Review Bamboo
This hip mainstay on the top level of the Maho central shopping area features red lacquer walls, lounging tables, Indonesian art, a first-rate lounge, and electro-house tunes. You can get terrific sushi and sashimi, both classic Japanese varieties and Americanized ones. Asian hot appetizers and exotic cocktails like the Tranquility (citrus vodka and smoky oolong tea) are good, too. If you're not into sushi, try the roast chicken, steak, or seared salmon. Solo visitors have a great time hanging at the bar, and the place rocks till late night. From 5 to 7 pm sake, beer, and wine are half price, as are tapas and appetizers.
