    Been a couple years since we ate here, but it is even better than I remembered. Can't miss with any dish, but the design-your-own fresh rolls is amazing.

    Took my parents here for a late Mother’s Day celebration. My mom really enjoyed it, because she loves soup and got the pho. My parents aren’t very adventurous with cuisines of different cultures, so I was excited that my mom loved it so much. I also got the beef pho, and it was some of the most tender beef I’ve ever had in pho. Very good!

    In Yampa for a few days of fun and, as a real foodie and retired Exec. Chef, needed to try Bamboozle after menu and rave revues. Eclectic menu snd really enjoyed the careful presentation and subtle flavors in our green papaya based salad and various spring rolls.

    Came to Tampa for Jo Koy and ate here. This is walking distance to the Tampa Theatre. The food was delicious and service was great. We ate early so no many folks were there. I had the chicken Pho — very delicious and better than what I’ve had in Orlando. And my husband had the shaking beef of which he said he would eat 3 plates and was his best meal ever ! Definitely eat here !!!!

    We had a nice date night here a few weeks back. It was my second time eating here and loved it just as much as the first time. They know how to make tofu not only edible, but tasty and left me wanting more. This is one of my favorite places to dine downtown Tampa.

    My husband and I went here for a date on a Saturday night. We decided to each get a bowl of pho (oxtail for me and chicken for him) and split an order of lemongrass chicken. We also had warm sake and a cocktail. Everything was hot and delicious when it came out. It did seem like it took a little longer than normal to get our food but we didn’t mind. The oxtail pho was phenomenal. There were big pieces of oxtail in the pho and lots of vegetables and noodles. My husband liked his chicken pho too but said it wasn’t as flavorful as mine. The lemongrass chicken was also really delicious. The green beans that came with it were either raw or just lightly cooked so I didn’t like them as much. It wasn’t super crowded in the restaurant when we got there. The staff was pleasant and overall it was a great experience.

    My boyfriend was working and I was off that evening. Josh served us that night and his service was excellent! The restaurant called us "regulars" and I was a little embarrassed! Do they really know us that well?! My boyfriend can be a picky eater and they honored all of his requests. They even brought out a carafe for his own water (he drinks a lot of water!) because they know us so well. We're only in about once a month, but they remember us! I always love the food there, it's always so savory and delicious -- especially their appetizer summer rolls. My favorite is the duck. I always have pho when I'm there because it is so healthy! I'm happy to have found a place in my neighborhood that is delicious and VERY HEALTHY!
