I ordered a small "Auntie's Shoyu Chicken" ($9, plus a 25-cent to-go fee), a healthy portion of boneless, shredded shoyu chicken with a scoop of white rice and a scoop of macaroni salad. I got my food pretty fast, about 5-7 minutes after placing my order.

I'm giving the mac salad mixed reviews. It was a very good mac salad, quite authentic in appearance and taste. A very nice macaroni-to-mayonnaise ratio. However, it should have been colder (as in refrigerated), and I feel this mac salad was closer to room temperature. A room-temperature mac salad is not what I would consider appetizing.
It looks like local people (from Hawaii) run this place, which is a damn good thing. However, I must also say that the inside of Bamboo Grove was a bit dark and could benefit from more lighting.
Bamboo Grove has an impressive menu, and perhaps I may enjoy their other menu items. The shoyu chicken was barely above average to me, and I would appreciate it if I got colder mac salad in the future. 5.75/10
