The coconut summer rolls are an addiction of mine. I get them once a month or so. The vegetarian pho is vegan and it is yummy and will last for 2 meals for me, but it is pretty salty, like all pho. In the pho, you can swap the fried tofu for fresh to make it lower in fat. There are a couple other vegan options, like tofu noodle and rice dishes. There is one with a pineapple teriyaki that is pretty good. You can also get a Thai iced tea with coconut milk instead of cream.

I ordered the salad rolls there. They are large and plenty for a lunch. Unfortunately, mine actually had a rubber band in it. I gave it to the waiter, telling him I found it in my salad roll. I figured I should at least get my money back, but no. After I had eaten the rest of it, he asked me if I wanted them to remake it but no, no money back. I thought that was a poor way to do business.

Pros: Large salad rolls

Cons: Rubber band in my salad roll

Pros: fast service, healthy brown rice

what an embarrassment...

You won't find a chef at Bambuza. An extraordinary name let down by possibly the most over-simplified, uncreative food I have seen in a long time. After being stared-down by the cooks, my vegetarian soup was about 4 slices of raw tofu in a half gallon container filled to the top with salt water. I was given a side of plain white bean sprouts. Everything immediately went to the trash. A total kitchen nightmare.

As Veg-Friendly as the Typical Asian Eatery

The food was delicious, but they use oyster sauce in a lot of their dishes and have no substitute, so only two dishes (eggplant and green beans with tofu, plus a few appetizers) are vegan. The staff has no clue what vegan is, thought oyster sauce was ok because it is just a sauce.

Pros: Delicious tasty food

Cons: Limited vegan options, No non-vegan sauce substitutes

Fantastic vegan pho

It is always a real delight to dine at Bambuza, where there are a number of vegetarian/vegan items on the menu. My favorite is vegetarian (vegan) pho, and the vegetarian (vegan) salad rolls are scrumptuous, too. Friendly, clean atmosphere is also a plus. Great Vietnames vegan food!

Pros: Delicious vegan dishes, Clean, friendly atmosphere, Authenic Vietnamese cuisine
