Bamboozle and Bamboozle Tea Lounge are my absolute favorite fresh food places in Tampa. Healthy and Unique are a guarantee. They even deliver to the local area!

The food here is amazingly fresh. While it's not exactly the place you'd choose when trying to 'impress', it's the first place that springs to mind when ever I have a chance to eat out. As a vegetarian (aspiring vegan), the quality and freshness of the food is second to none.

Bamboozle serves vietnamese favorites like fresh spring rolls and pho. It's counter service and you can name your ingreedients, kind of like ordering at Subway. This restaurant is quick, healthy, and features great fresh ingreedients.

I love this restaurant! The food is so fresh and tasty. The fresh rolls are made in front you, and you get to choose the filling. The pho is tasty, and they have lots of different side sauces to add flavor to your meal. They also have a selection of iced teas that are delicious. A great place for lunch... More

I originally discovered Bamboozle as a lunch spot. They do a good job of converting it to a 'restaurant' experience from a lunch-time cafe in the evenings. The food is EXCELLENT when ever you visit.

I have been here twice now with groups of friends and I will continue to come back. The food is fresh and they have great portions. The atmosphere is casual but I could even see myself coming here on a date. Service is quick, courteous and pleasant. I am excited to show others this gem!

I don't get downtown much in the evening so never realized that this was more than a lunch hutch and a fusion-style Vietnamese restaurant with an extensive menu. With more people moving to downtown and nearby Channelside, there is a need for a place to pick up a quick dinner, perhaps to take home. I know the rolls are killers... More

Cute little Downtown Tampa restaurant, the food is very tasty and feels good eating it, not heavy. The only small issue was to be careful of what you order... I ordered soup and thought it would be a cup and ended up a massive bowl.
