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

Ordered a 'pad thai' tofu, requested no egg or fish sauce; received an egg 'pad thai' (pile of discoloured noodles unceremoniously dumped on a plate without any garnish or vegetables) without tofu!! This was after confirming the order several times with the waitstaff. Cancelled order and went elsewhere.

Situated on the main road, we visited on Christmas Night, Phonsavan does not celebrate Christmas so there were no decorations or the worry that it would be closed. Initially it was empty but soon filled with diners and had took on a cheery atmosphere. We ordered Pizza and chips, having become bored with noodles and sticky rice over the past... More
