Had dinner here on Wednesday and loved everything about this restaurant. We had two people gluten free but it was no trouble for them and the service we found was exceptional especial thank you for Evonne for making us feel special. Definitely will be back for more!

Nice fit out, big menu with lots of choices. Great waitstaff. Booked at 6 and needed to be out by 8. Dishes didn't take long to arrive after ordering and the place was packed. Wouldn't recommend if you are out for a quiet romantic dinner, and some dishes are quite pricey for what you get, which is a shame as... More

A long time ago, when Bamboozle was only in Sumner, I was told I should check it out. Years later and I am, only it's now in the CBD. A good selection of meals; my sashimi and tempura were both excellent. The service was good and my meal arrived promptly, though, it was lunch time and they weren't busy. The... More

The lunch service was quick for those in a hurry but you could take your time. The sea food was fresh and watch out for the horseradish it has a kick. Interesting colourful decor with parking just around... More

I went to Bamboozle restaurant a couple of nights ago with friends, prior to going out to a comedy show. Firstly, it's good to see some new, different restaurants starting to pop up in the CBD, some 6 years after the earthquakes. I enjoyed the food, service and sense of humour in the menu. The price was reasonable; about $60.00... More
