As a Mexican, I've known many Latino restaurants, but Bamboozle was one of the worst one, they mistook my burritos with my fajitas. I don't advice it, you better go to Street food that are cheaper and better.

we enjoyed the local food here and it also sells coffee called From Bombs to Beans which supports the Lone Buffalo project helping young locals learn to speak English

We ordered a couple of ‘Happy Hour’ brewskies, a garlic bread appetizer and a meat lovers pizza – 105,000 Kip The restaurant is simple bar atmosphere – service was fast and polite. The pizza was very basic, cheese and meat were sparse, however what we...got was personal sized and tasty – for the price it was good value for the money in a Lao local establishment!More

Usually, I will not go for Western food in remote touristy places as they usually come off disappointing. Also, why bother when they usually can do local dishes better? However, I decided to try a burger here, and was pleasantly surprised cos it came out...really good.More

The food was good if you want a bit of a western fix. They had happy hour and the beer was cold. Service good would recommend.

Went in for dinner, left after a drink. Poor service, low attention and not being picky but it was pretty poor. Decided to leave and eat somewhere else.

Three young men servers, busy on their cell phones. Tossed menus at us without acknowledging or making eye contact. Burgers were strange, meat patty was all broken up on a stale dry bun. Old brown mustard on table with other condiments. Signs every where said...25% off drinks 5-7pm, servers too busy to apply this to our bill, we were happy to leave anyway.More

In spite of some previous reviews, we went and were pleasantly surprised. For a meal of spring rolls and pizza, it was fine. There is an interesting booklet there in English regarding the “Lone Buffalo” organisation which provides free English lessons to the youth in...the area.More

I have eaten at Bamboozle several times over the past two summers while working in the province. I have never been overly impressed. The service is good, as is the price. However the food is just OK. Some dishes are better than others, but for...sure stay away from their hamburger, they say it is 100% lean beef and that is just what it tastes like (think about where the flavor is in a hamburger).More

Is there any reason why using deep frozen vegetables in a city with a phantastic market just around the corner? NO! The lao dishes we had were very boring and poor. Maybe good enough for eating Burgers and Pizza there. But why should I ......there are so many good restaurants meters away. Fire the cook! Never had such a bad meal in Lao!More
