We had a fantastic night here. We confused our booking and came a week too early, it was a busy night but we were still well looked after. It was such an experience watching the skilled chefs at work creating real masterpieces. Great customer service and great food. Highy reccommend!

The good was amazing but: my main came out before my entree. I had NO idea this was going to happen as why would I? We were in a group and all the meals came out in random order and my husband was the person that sat there with no main or entree. I think there is no excuse for... More

Best restaurant of our holiday to NZ. Far better than a similar styled restaurant we have tried in Melbourne, Australia (chin chin). Staff were attentive but not overbearing, food creative, quick service, good wine menu and everything we tried was absolutely delicious! Love this restaurant!

The most arrogant owner I have ever met, didn't want to hear our complaints. His dissitation on the rear of the menu just proves his attitude to customers. Won't be returning there, expensive and not value for money.

Went with high expectations. Have never been so disappointed. Over priced food and made to feel like having a gluten intolerance was some kind of crime and that I wasn't welcome in the restaurant. Blurb on the back of the menu from the chef and owner was the most arrogant and self satisfying load of rubbish. I will NOT be... More

Dropped in off the street and were treated extremely well. Great food options with generous servings - great value for money. Service was attentive, quick and a high standard. Really worth the visit - happy to recommend it.

We stumbled across bamboozle whilst looking for a place to have dinner. The place looked nice but by the end of dinner that is about the only positive thing i can say. Our waitress was pushy. Two items on the menu that looked appealing were not available despite it only being 7pm which was disappointing. We ordered the 'saliva' sushi... More

I was looking forward to dining at Bamboozle. The menu looked cracking. The place has a noisy but warm vibe. Windows to the charcoal grill let you in on the kitchen's workings. We arrived a little early and had a cocktail at the bar (cocky bartender - my whiskey sour was too sweet). We sat at the table & quickly... More

Amazing menu, great staff, deliciousness without fault. Sat at front watching every meal being prepared with perfection. Unfortunately my stomach ran out of room.
