“Awesome place for casual Vietnamese dining”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

Bambuza in Tualatin is a solid choice for a great meal. You can get both traditional Vietnamese dishes and some "fusion" choices for a more Ameican pallet. While the ambiance is a little strip mall style, the food quality is way more than that. I would highly recommend this location for a high quality casual meal. Prices are very reasonable, the service is outstanding. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the location, which is in a strip mall, but the food and service are definitely a 5 star rating. Also a location in NW Portland which I have not visited.

“What a treasure!”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

Bambuza has it all: excellent food, unbelievably low prices, zippy ambiance (although it might be too noisy if it were crowded) and easily reached on the Portland Streetcar.

“I love this place!”
Reviewed March 19, 2011

My husband is a patient at OHSU and we finished his appt. at 6pm. The nice office staff pointed out this restaurant to us, one block away. The menu is wonderful and very affordable. We shared a house salad roll, lots of goodies in rice wrapper with ruffled lettuce "growing" out the top, served with sate dipping sauce. I had a mango salad with shrimp and a lime vinegarette. My husband had a chicken Pho served with sprouts, mint and hot sauces. All portions were generous and nicely presented. Service was a bit slow, they could have used another server. Overall I give them very high marks, good selection and fair prices.

“Average food, less than average service”
Reviewed March 21, 2009

It looked OK, but the waitress put us in a table with the setting sun directly in our faces and made no attempt to move us to a different table - and the restaurant was almost completely empty. Attention to the meal was occassional, and the food average at best. I would not recommend this to a friend/

“Great lunch near Sky Tram”
Reviewed November 6, 2008

We found this restaurant by accident after taking the Sky Tram, and enjoyed a delicious lunch of fresh food and gracious service. The location is conveniently close to the lower terminal.
