An experience

This is not our usual Asian restaurant, the menu is elaborated and distinguished. Food is prepared with care and dedication, it is a very nice dinning restaurant. Beware of spices, some dishes come with a bite.

I have been to Bamboozle 3 or 4 times now and each time I have not enjoyed it. The balance of fusion flavors is not great, the last dish I ordered was a whole fish that was buried in black beans and swimming in lime juice, yuck not a combination that should be tried again and the fish was over...

We had booked a table for eight for News Years. The waitress offered us the option of the Chef making our menu which we thought would be best. All night we got the amazing food coming plate after plate tapa style. Everyone loved the food and there was plenty of it. Staff were friendly. Will be back..

Yesterday was not my first time at Bamboozle and as usual it was fantastic. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the food is always absolutely delicious. Good for a date or for diner with friends, it is probably recommended to share plates .... and then take a doggy bag as the portions are quite big!!! Definitely a must-go-to in... More

My husband and I were just looking for somewhere slightly off the beaten track, to have a light meal after work on a Friday evening. He often goes paragliding nearby and I work on the Sumner side of town, so we decided to meet there and give Bamboozle a try. Please do have a good sense of humour when reading... More

Hi we went to Bamboozle last night with friends. The food is delicious. All the different flavours, everything is so fresh especially the oxtail entrée overall this was a great experience and we will definitely be back. The menu was eclectic to say the least and caused a lot of mirth - thanks so much for a wonderful experience

We ate here with 2 friends a few weeks back. The food is zingy, fresh and tasty. Although we shouldn't have listened to the waitress who was clearly good at upselling. We ordered far too much food as the portions were bigger than described. Not a problem we battled on and enjoyed the left overs the next day. Especially good... More

We hadn't booked anything for New Year's Eve but the restaurant managed to fit us in. The menu was extensive and the food was excellent. We found the menu titles very amusing. Great atmosphere with great food and wine and excellent service.
