“Also ripped off at Roxy Bar”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I can only agree with the comments made by "AussieElo" every word that she said is correct, in actual fact I was a victim myself on the 17th May 2014, and let me tell you it is absolutely true, we also walked out, the old bag on stage even wanted money from the guys that were on the stage with balloon popping, the toilets were so disgusting and filthy, worse then a pig style, health is certainly not taken into account at this Bar.

“Avoid- aggressive staff”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

I was lured into this bar with a friend by a pushy thai girl holding a placard out front. There was a reggae band playing and it seemed like a happening place so we sat down and the pushy one brought us 2 beers which we didn't order. I looked at the menu and they want 165baht for a beer so we promptly got up and left. The pushy one chased us down Bangla road, making a scene, waving a docket for 2 beers in my face and threatening to call the police. Having travelled to thAiland many times I know you can't win against the locals so we sheepishly returned and drank our beers, the left left. We staying in patong for another 2 weeks and told every Aussie we met not To drink at this bar. There's 1000's more polite, deserving places to party in Patong.

“Great Music, Friendly Staff.... Strongly Recommended”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

I visited this place in May 2014 recently and randomly landed at this place when I heard some good live music being played. And take my word, this place has got some real good talent. The music along with happy hours is like icing on the cake. I was in Patong for 3 nights and made sure that I visit the place every night without fail. Liquor is not expensive, staff is very friendly and the they even let you sing if you want to. Overall, I rate this place 4.5/5

PS: @admin: Asking for a favor. One of the staff member at Koh (Name : Net). I am not able to get in touch with her as I lost her contact details. I would really appreciate if you could please pass on the message and ask her to get in touch with me at parv.bansal18@gmail.com. Thanks in advance

“Danger: avoid this place by all means”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

I walked past what looked like a friendly place early evening while they were setting up. Staff were initially friendly and even helped me order a pizza from across the road. I was planning to move on but given they were so friendly I decided to stay and drank around 8 beers.
I ate half my pizza and can't remember anything else until
I woke up at holt directly next to the bar in the ally, without the contents of my wallet. I asked the hotel staff as politely as I could yet they refused to help. I logged into my online banking and noticed close to $1,500 worth of withdrawls from my account at an atm directly next to the bar.
If you don't like being drugged and robbed, avoid this place like the plague.
I've lodged a complaint with my bank and am awaiting the outcome hopefully with some CCTV footage from the atm that can show the thieves.

I'm sorry to read what has ultimately happened to yourself, but those accusations are extremely questionable and misguided towards Koh Bamboo, and something that has NEVER occurred within this venue. Have you contacted the Tourist Police at least? Have you attempted to speak with the main owner of the venue? Koh Bamboo's reputation will not be tarnished by these allegations, your last recollections should not immediately link our venue to your outcome. There have been many unfortunate instances of visitors having these sort of experiences in Phuket before, just as these types of bad experiences occur everywhere around the world but, thankfully we have a reputation of warning our customers to the dangers of where and how much you drink along with watching out for your valuables. Please send me information regarding who you attempted to speak, but I assure you Koh Bamboo venue staff are very much not responsible for this outcome and I sincerely hope the real culprits can be caught with the help of CCTV or local authorities as they will view this matter seriously as we would all expect before the next victim ends up in similar circumstances, for everybody's reputation, please report this matter accordingly, thank you
