Good service when we arrived, as we did not have a booking we were seated in the bar area, which was nice. There was no gap between our entrée and main, and that is when the service ended, unfortunately we would of had another drink and dessert if the waitress had come back to the table. Food was ok.

This is a fantastic place to eat, right in the centre of Sumner. They do a wide range of oriental food, the chef is very talented! They also do takeaways

Went here to see what a Fusion Asian Resturant would be like and was bitterly disappointed. The starters were undercooked and the main that I ordered was a chicken dish which had liquorice as an ingrediant just didn't work and was uneditable. Our waitress recommended this and then when I told her it was awful she said that people either... More

Sumner is one of the nicest areas in Christchurch and it took a battering in the earthquake but the locals refuse to lie down, instead the area is on the up. Bamboozle is an amazing take on Kiwi/Asian fusion and just reading the titles of the dishes on the menu is amusing to say the least. The food was right... More

Dined here on Friday evening as a last minute decision, we had not made a reservation, however they were able to accommodate us. We ordered 4 different dishes, plus rice, to share between the two of us, and enjoyed them all. Did notice on the bottom of the menu, an advisory note to say order 2-3 dishes per person, I... More

What a find on our only night in Sumner. We went on the recommendation of the local barista and were really pleased we did.The menu was varied with lots of interesting combinations of tastes. Our usually fussy teenagers loved their dishes and then proceeded to help on ours. A fantastic find in Sumner village and worth a drive to visit... More

We ate here on a whim. Was very busy and given a table in the bar which was fine for 2. Looking over the menu it was clear that as long as you are prepared to pay lots and eat what ever you are fine. The menu states not to eat there if you have any allergies or dietary needs... More

We dined in a group that was not all that large, certainly less than 10, and were forced to have a set menu, 2 courses, entree and main, for $65. The size of our group did not justify a set menu. We were given no choices within that menu - we just got what we were given and without explanations... More

Of 4 dishes we ordered 2 were fantastic (eg brulee!), but others (eg nasi goreng and prawns) average relative to the reputation. This restaurant is a very heavy user of soy sauce so its difficult for the meals to be to particularly "subtle" and gluten free people will struggle to find much to eat. The menu tries to encourage you... More
