After a day trip from Luang Prabang to Phonsavan, we had dinner at Bamboozle to settle the night before heading back to Luang Prabang the next day. Not much of a variety in Phonsavan, this is the best you can get compare to Luang Prabang.

Bamboozle is right on the Main street of Phonsavan, close to the turn to the Bus Station. They are only open in the evenings, lots of seating space, including some tables in the open. Good food - both Asian and Western, and plenty of drinks.

The food is really nice, not amazing, but still very tasty! The service guys were really attentive, even though they had a full house (a tourist group of at least 20 people)! I had pumpkin soup and pasta with tomato/basil sauce and both dishes were really enjoyable! I can totally recommend it!

I had dinner at Bamboozle's. Mekong riverweed and a Thai soup. It was nothing special, but ok. It is the only meal I had in Phonsavan, so I cannot compare it to other places. I would probably return and try something else if I were to return to Phonsavan.

The food was delicious, and well priced. We went with some local choices and everything was really good. The restaurant is open on one side to the elements though, making it a bit chilly at night. People were wearing there down jackets while eating. Wear something warm if its winter.

I have eaten at Bamboozle's since their inception, many years ago. Their food is tasty, clean and reasonably priced. Their Lao garden salad is so filling, it is a meal in itself. Their pancakes are spongy and served with butter, honey and a lemon wedge. Their Lao or Western dishes are unfailingly good. Definitely, one of my favourite eating spots... More
