On the number of occasions now that we have dined there my wife and I have never been disappointed by either the menu or the service. We have tried a variety of mains including the Pork Belly, Whole gurnard (and it really is the whole gurnard!), Cocaine rice (to die for), Lik-er-ash chicken... can't wait to go there again! Haven't tried the desserts yet, but the mains are affordable, and we enjoy a stroll along the esplanade after dining. One of our favourite places to dine with friends, can't rate it highly enough.

Decided to take our boys out for dinner to celebrate their 4th birthday. This is one of our favourite restaurants and we wanted to see how they would do. Headed early so as not to annoy any fellow diners.
Waitress accommodating as always. Ordered salmon and wasabi pot stickers, hit or a miss if you could taste the wasabi, one of the boys certainly could, as immediately downed half his water bottle! Unfortunately our favourite, steamed buns, are now deep fried, still have the yummy satay chicken inside, but we definitely preferred the previous version. Also ordered shredded chicken salad, which was delicious and their take on nasi goreing which seemed to taste better the more we delved into it. Didn't look at the wine list, just ordered some tap beer [ erindager] sorry please excuse spelling and good old lindauer for mummy.
$77 with the entertainment card, so good value and we will definitely be heading back.

Agree with others that the service was definitely the best attribute of this place. Waitress was helpful, attentive and accommodating.
Food shared with a friend - had prawn toast served with an avocado dip - was quite strange, cream cheese dumplings - again not that impressed, fish in lemon sauce (very sickly), coconut rice and a minced lamb dish - which was by far the best dish of the evening. Enough food for the 2 of us to share, finished with an awesome cocktail.
Am glad I tried Bamboozle as have been wanting to go for a while, unfortunately it wasn't worth the trip out to Sumner.

We enjoyed our meal here very much. The waitress was excellent; very helpful and friendly, and the atmosphere was fun. Her wine recommendations were spot on. For an entree she recommended the cream cheese and salmon dumplings which we weren't convinced by, a little cloying and left me with a hankering for a good old fashioned pork dumpling. However, the Mongolian lamb was excellent and the duck leg was cooked to perfection- falling off the bone, fantastic! My only complaint was that the 'mango salad' did not consist of any actual mango. There was certainly a mango dressing, but I think the menu needs to be changed to clarify this as it is a bit misleading, and therefore disappointing. I mentioned this to the waitress and she agreed and said other customers had also pointed this out. All in all though we were happy and would certainly return.

After checking out the DineOut site before going we had high expectations of Bamboozle but apart from the friendly and attentive staff it was all a bit of a let down.
We started with the pulled pork wantons which were very good. M’s market fried fish looked spectacular and was “okay” but my prawn stew was too oily and too much of a struggle for me to finish.
Then there was the chunk of stone that I had the pleasure of crunching my teeth on. I wasn’t angling for any freebies but the statement from the kitchen: “That’s because they dry the black beans on the road side in China” didn’t really cut the mustard.
$99.50 for 2 beers ($11.50 each!), 1 entre, and 2 small mains was too much for the quality of the food to have us considering a return visit.
