What You'll Get
Eating at a restaurant inside of a restaurant is a lot like shopping on a smartphone while swimming in pudding: it's twice as cozy, and if you drop the smartphone, you still have a pool full of pudding. Double your dining options with today's deal: for $12, you get $25 worth of fusion fare and drinks at Bamboo Lounge or freshly rolled sushi and drinks at Ami Sushi. Both dining destinations share a cozy location in Hillcrest. Because there's no purchase limit for this Groupon, feel free to alternate your dinners between the Bamboo Lounge and Ami Sushi for the next six months.
At Bamboo Lounge, the open-air patio and interior lounge welcome diners to feast on fusion fare paired with an extensive beer and wine list. Swing through with your Groupon for dinner Monday through Thursday, and sip on a complimentary glass of sangria for each member of your table. Likewise, lounge any night Tuesday through Saturday to partake in tempting menu options, including jalapeño alfredo pasta ($10), caprese salad ($7), and custom pizza creations (starting at $6, $1 per topping).
Like a Russian nesting doll, Ami Sushi rests comfortably in the core of the Bamboo Lounge, serving up fresh sushi and salads daily from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. The menu is full of delicious specialty rolls (starting at $10). Taste the Rainbow (crab, cucumber, and avocado wrapped with tuna, salmon, yellow tail, and shrimp, $11), or Ninja (tempura shrimp, snow crab, and cucumber wrapped with albacore, avocado, and stealthy-but-delicious ninja sauce, $11). Salad lovers can toss in an order for the spicy tuna salad (ahi tuna, cucumber, kawaiti sprouts, gobo, masago, sesame dressing, $8), poké salad (marinated tuna, salmon, and yellow tail on carrot salad, $9), or the classic seaweed salad ($4). Ami Sushi features a gently skittering soundscape of drum 'n' bass and global dub that might spur creative diners into ordering in haiku.
This deal is valid for dine-in only.
- The food, white/red sangria is AMAZING! – BowWowBeautyShoppe, Citysearch
- A girlfriend took me to Bamboo to check it out for a birthday location. I loved it and had my friends met [sic] there for my 25th birthday. Since then, I am there almost every week. It has a kick-back eclectic feel, and lots of comfy places to sit. Their sangria is KILLER!! – SunOnWater11, Kudzu
- Great food, bottomless mimosas/sangria, inexpensive, eclectic furniture, excellent lighting, outside patio seating! – Mr R., Yelp

T-Lounge defies expectations. Though Japan, Italy, and Mexico are literally dozens of miles apart, the eatery brings their foods together on its eclectic menu. For example, gourmet sushi rolls are served with steaming plates of fettuccine pasta or chicken quesadillas. On Saturdays and Sundays, the kitchen converts to breakfast food, serving omelets and breakfast sandwiches, and their deli serves healthy sandwiches piled with freshly sliced meats and veggies. T-Lounge serves numerous varieties of beer and wine—such as draft Guinness Stout—and also doubles as an art gallery, which features work from local artists such as Stacy D'Aguiar or Kansley Pye.
