Myself and 5 of my friends went to Tamboo for dinner last night. I cannot emphasize how terribly slow the service was. We waited 1.5 hrs for the appetizer, then another hour for the entree. Then after all this they brought me a completely different dish from what I ordered. I could not be bothered to wait another hour for... More

Our hostess chose Tamboo to celebrate her husband's birthday. When we walked into the place, it was an absolutely gorgeous place.

Having received first-hand accounts filled with praise for Tamboo Bistro, located on Main Street in Brockton, MA, one wonders if this city’s downtown area, notorious for its lack of culinary flair, is undergoing an upscale transformation. Tamboo, after all, signifies the rhythm of life, and its owners hope to emulate this by serving an eclectic array of both New American... More
