Bamboo Lagoon

Time Out Says

It’s hard to know where to begin with Bamboo Lagoon – as a starting point, you can expect an abundance of hollowed wood and a small pond, home to a collection of koi carp, which signals the entrance to the venue. Located on the JW Marriott’s rather international ‘restaurant floor’ – adjacent to German-themed outlet Hofbräuhaus, with which it joins forces for a weekly evening brunch – this kitsch Asian restaurant has a distinctly (and surprisingly) Polynesian feel. Thursday and Friday evenings are the busiest, when patrons pour in for the Rhythm & Taste night: a buffet offering everything from Chinese dumplings to Japanese sushi to Thai spring rolls, accompanied by a spirited Maori haka dance, with diners cheered onto the small stage. Little of the reasonable selection on offer stands out as a ‘must-try’, and you might find your appetite better served in one of the neighbouring outlets. Bamboo Lagoon’s entertainment, however, is rib-ticklingly unmissable.
