Have wanted to eat here for quite a while and finally had the opportunity with a group of girlfriends. The suggestion from the wait staff is to order 2 plates each and to share. We ordered what we wanted (with some double ups) and did end up sharing when we all had our fill. I had the beef wantons and... More

I was looking forward to trying this place, but unfortunately I wasn't overly impressed. Out of the 4 dishes we ordered, one was great, one was good, but the other two were average at best. The service was okay, although a bit scattered. Overall I found Bamboozle to be pretty average.

We've eaten here a few times and, sadly, each time it's been a little less enjoyable. From start to finish this was hands down the poorest effort. After being greeted indifferently by the obviously disinterested Maitre D we were seated. The young wait staff member got our drinks sorted and subsequently the food order but throughout the evening she made... More

I've been here plenty of times but tonight's food lacked its usual wow. Sweet n sour dumplings are nice but need sauce! Too much pastry. My pork was dry, but the cocaine rice was yum! Overall not as good as previous

This is a new location for an old favorite. Welcomed as we entered . We were a bit early. Coffee was available and a drink (if we wanted one).Greeted again at the coffee counter. Excellent service Great extended menu- we both really enjoyed our large servings in a relaxing warm and friendly atmosphere. This is a great place to eat.

We came here on a quiet Monday evening after being recommended the place by a friend. The atmosphere was great and the place was spotlessly clean! The food we ordered was amazing, and the menu itself is really quirky, which we liked. The only downside was one of our friends said they allow you to over order quite a lot,... More

Great location, fantastic atmosphere, excellent wait staff and a mouth watering menu. Had heard heaps about this restaurant, but the hike to Sumner would have made it a 3 hour return trip. So pleased it is now more centrally located. Four of us went out to dinner and we ordered everything that looked good. Were pleasantly surprised at the final... More

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
