The food was different but really nice. Some of the names of the meals were humorous. Make sure you read the back of the menu for the funny note from the chef. If I had to fault the place, the waitress that was on didn't smile and wasn't very engaging.

Bamboolze lives up to its name - it confused Elizabeth and I a bit with its mix of different styles of asia and western food styles. An interesting concept Our favorite dish and one that will bring us back will be the sashimi - extremely fresh and wonderfully presented. The service was good and the atmosphere set up for a...

Came to visit Bamboozle with some family and friends to celebrate a birthday. We arrived a little early so decided to have a drink at the bar. The wine list was very poor and we found the bartender to be very pushy and not very knowledgable about the wines on the list. After the rest of the party arrived we... More

Interesting menu, and we were excited to try a variety if different things. Some was good, but some of the flavors were just off, and some of the ingredients were not that great. A crunchy veg sushi, for example, was quite good, but the wasabi sauce not so much. The Pad Thai ingredients were not all good, especially the Prawns... More

The most disappointing factor of our night out was the fact that we were an older group of people celebrating a birthday and the restaurant would not permit us to have the birthday cake!
