Group family dinner so shared plates worked really well. Seated at a high table with clear view into the kitchen which was calm and organised. Menu huge and everything sounded delicious .....we ended up asking waiter for help as we couldn't decide! Servings are generous and I can guarantee that you will over eat!

There's a major play on words on the menu so you have to go along with the theme! The Asian fusion restaurant was busy and seems very popular with locals and visitors alike. The food was good; our choices were Luff me long time Noodles, Prawns, pork and peanuts, sizzling pork and coconut rice and Lamb and chillies. Portion sizes... More

We had the salmon cream cheese dumplings, blue cod & crab dim sims, cocaine rice and the mushroom prawn tempura. Wow, seriously good food. Every dish was delicious, we would highly recommend and most definitely be returning!

In for lunch, we were the first there for the day. I headed straight for the toilet and it was a bit sticky, the table and the menu were both sticky. Better cleaning is required. Good waiting staff. Funny menu names. We had a selection of dishes as follows: Sweet and sour pork dumplings - far too sweet, difficult to... More

I was recommended this restaurant by a local on a recent visit. The menu seemed interesting so I was looking forward to my meal. However, the service was pretty average and the food did not really live up to its promise. The starters of beef dim sum and sweet and sour pork dumplings were average. Both came with mayonnaise based... More

This is my second time visiting Bamboozle, and each time it's just not cutting the mustard in terms of their idea of fusion food. I tired the talked about pecking duck, but nothing spectacular about it if you have tried the authentic one. Meat was dry and skin was not crispy like it should. For me, It's one of those... More

Went out for a work dinner It was ok wouldn't go again have been once before. The waitress looked as if she didnt want to be there, food was average and you need to buy a few plates because they are small but that all adds up! The Pegasus bay sauvignon blanc needs to be changed it tastes like a... More

We had a nice casual dinner at this lively place on a recent stay in Christchurch when the rest of the downtown area seemed errily empty and moribund. Two of us sat at the bar and had a sampling of three small dishes, which was more than enough food. Pan-Asian style, mixing different southeast Asian cuisines and quirky twists unique... More
