“Great food but let down by awful staff.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Bo Bun's Food was really lovely and we all fully enjoyed it. Manager was great and very accommodating as were the male members of staff. However the female members that served us provided the rudest service I have ever experienced, lots of eye rolling and slamming the food down which really ruined our experience there. We all felt really uncomfortable which was a disappointment.

“Excellent service and fresh food spoiled by odd choice of water brand”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This is my third visit to this lovely well run and friendly restaurant and I keep hoping that they will stop serving Cazorla water (in both still and sparkling format) as the only choice for mineral water. On every occasion someone eating with me was remarked that the water seemed "off" or "stale." Please as a note to the management, Cazorla is a specialty mineral water ideal for babies and spas but not for restaurants. It does taste funny because it has a special mineral mix. Please send it back and get a more pedestrian local water. You will probably have better margins and happier customers as the food will taste better. If you read my other reviews you will see I am not some oddball water critic! )))

“Very average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

As far as we can tell, good Asian restaurants aren't Barcelona's strong side, but there are some excellent. "Bun Bo" is not one of them. I found the food average to mediocre, the service slow and lacking in care.

“My favorite place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

This is my favorite place in Barcelona!! Especially the lunch offer you get really good value for the money (3 courses and drink for 10€). The noodle salads are my favorite!!
