Cuisine: Asian, European, Fusion
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35
Ranked: #9 of 93 restaurants in Christchurch

Leave all pre-conceived ideas about Asian fusion food at the door, Bamboozle Oriental Fusion Kitchen & Cocktail bar is stand alone in style and panache!

Featuring Christchurch’s only Japanese Robata Binchon-tan charcoal grill, Bamboozles menu is full of flavour and surprise. Traditional Chinese, Japanese and southeast Asian dishes have been ‘Bamboozlized’ to create an innovative, modern and hilariously unique cuisine style.

Try ‘Kouw Kum Nou’ smoked beef wontons or ‘Aunty and her angry cockerel’ Thai style sweet and sour chicken. Perhaps the Bamboozle Rendang voted NZ’s best in 2017.

Bamboozle signature dish Cocaine rice is so addictive it should be banned and Japanese style Poke, marinated fresh fish salads are so popular Bamboozle will be opening a dedicated Poke store in Christchurch later this year.

Fusion cocktails, craft beers and wonderful wine complete the package.

Incredible food and service as always! One of my favourite restaurants in Christchurch without doubt! Nothing to fault! The food is so fresh, so delicious and was quick to come out! The service is always so welcoming and the staff look after you so well, something many restaurants lack! Fantastic dinner!!

Excellent service and very tasty, generously-sized meals. This was not my first choice for the night via First Table, but so glad that option was already booked as we would have missed out on this find. Highly recommended, will definitely return.

Crab cakes were amazing. Chicken Kuang Po was really good, just lacked Chicken loads of chillis and peanuts as the dish is supposed to be but not balanced by chicken. My dining companion had the Duck salad and Lamd ribs and loved the ribs and said salad was good.

We enjoyed lovely food with friends, recommend the Pot Stickers and now it’s Asparagus season we had a side of these that were char grilled- yum. Food came out quick and as we shared everything was a good variety and portion size. Went with the Red wine that was suggested and on promotion. Staff were attentive and friendly, didn’t need to ask for anything. Good times.

Great diashed, great variety on the menu, only reason we didn't give it a 5 for food was that we didn't like one of the dishes - the crystal mushrooms - but loved the other dishes and cocktails we had. Will be back for more :)

Bamboozle is so worth the wait as it is hard to find a day that is available, and as soon as one comes up, I grab it. The food is so good, every dish we tried was full of tasty flavours that don't disappoint.

We Had a great early dinner! lots of interesting sounding items on the menu. We had beef&smoked cheese wontons, shrimp toast, salmon poke and penang curry. We also managed to squeeze in an old favorite, Bolli brulee. Perfect portion sizes, fantastic flavours. Happy and content after the meal, looking forward to going back for more!

Food is absolutely delicious! Only critique is the menu wasn’t explained to us so we didn’t get complete meals. Would recommend sharing dishes to try a variety. Great service.

The timing was perfect, 5.30pm seemed a bit early but we finished at exactly the right time to go to the theatre. We didn’t have to rush, we could choose plenty of different dishes. We loved the fusion of Asian and Pacifica. The service was perfect.

In short, we just can't get enough of the poke!
Our order:
* Sea salmon and mild soy chilli poke
* Wasabi blue cod with cherry tomatoes and picked daikon
"Cocaine"
Teriyaki beef fillet
Lamb Fillet
* Rendang
Bolli Brulee
* "Must try"

*These would be what we enjoyed the most out of the 8 dishes that we have ordered.

The service and atmosphere were great. Descriptions for each dishes were clear and on-point.
An interesting twist to traditional dishes that I am familiar with, especially the Rendang that was encased in sesame puff pastry and tasted great. No wonder it was voted the best in NZ 2016 & 2017.

It was our first time having poke from Bamboozle and definitely won't be our last.
Both options were refreshing and delicious.
If I can finish another bowl, I would definitely order the sea salmon poke.

If you have not been to Bamboozle, give it a go with some friends - over good food and good banter.

I enjoyed my time there with my friend. The staff was nice and services was excellent. For me, dishes aren’t authentic food was more sweet than spicy, when it supposed to be more spicy, but very creative. I still recommend to go and try. “Must Try” dessert was outstanding.

Fantastic food in a buzzy environment.
Top picks from our group of 4 were 'cocaine rice' Tofu salad and the brie and sun-dried tomato spring rolls.
Will definitely be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our pre-film meal at Bamboozle. Service was pleasant and prompt and the food delicious. The new menu has a good mixture of interesting dishes to try, with some old favourites retained. Although some are pricey, most are good value. The wasabi blue cod poke bowl was generous, filling and delicious and the description of the farti pork with "loads" of green beans is accurate - the beans were bright green, slightly crunchy and absolutely made the dish. Often mains come with frugal portions of vegetables and this was a welcome change. We loved our meals and had no hope of squeezing in dessert. I'm looking forward to returning and trying more of the new dishes.

Myself and 2 friends had an excellent dining experience at Bamboozle, all of the food was delicious and the staff were lovely.
We were recommended to order 3 dishes each however which was definitely too much for 3 people to eat, we ended up ordering 3 entrees to share and two main dishes with a side between us, this was heaps.
The must try dishes we found were the prawn toast and the cocaine rice! Fantastic!

Roll out the red carpet you're about to have a night you won't forget. Upon entry to bamboozle we received a warm welcome. Looking at the menu there were so many things I wanted to order. I got it down two and the waitress made her recommendation of bamboozle Kung Lao chicken. The interaction we had with the staff was exceptional. From start to finish nothing could be faulted. If there is one restaurant you go to this year make it bamboozle.
