“Tualatin Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

We have been to the Bambuza location in Tualatin (which needs to be added to Trip Advisor) quite a few times over the years. During the lunch rush or on a Friday night they can be a little busy, and do not have a huge amount of seating. Still, it is worth the visit and nice to have good Vietnamese food nearby. Their pho soup is very tasty (especially on a cold day), as are the other items on their menu. Staff is friendly and efficient, and the restaurant is nicely decorated. One of those places that you will come back to again...

“terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

We visited this restaurant last month and thought it was fine. On Aug. 31, we went at the same time for dinner and were puzzled and disappointed by the lack of attention. My relative said her crispy vegetarian rolls were good, but my vegetarian pho was tasteless and the broccoli pieces were barely steamed and so big that I had a hard time trying to eat them. There's confusion about whether groups will be served at tables or if staff expects people to always go to the counter. But once seated, we were ignored unless we called out for help. Guess we could have left without paying.

“Great food - busy and noisy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

Went for a late lunch and the place was still packed. The food was very fresh and delicious. The waits were short even with the crowds. Everything we tried we enjoyed. Walked away very full for about $12 / person.
