We had dinner here twice on our visit to see The Plain Of Jars. My husband had the Burger & chips, I had the Pork Laab, The staff are friendly & waiting time is not long, however we went in the low season.

That's a very good restaurant in the middle of somewhere, good food and very nice staff. The best in town.

Simple, good food and a charming staff. Wi-fi. Located meters away from MAG and QLA. Worth the walk in the dark.

Nice combination of Wester and Lao fare, the Bamboozle has something for everyone. the interior decor is Bamboo, but they also have a nicely stocked bar, giving the restaurant's name its intended pun.

A great little place for a meal. Good food and value. Service typical but satisfactory. Pizzas good. Burger average. Seems it's one of the best places in Phonsavan for falang food.

This place is a little gem in Phonsavan as there's not a lot else going on. Really good food and some of the best home made fries I've had ever, not just in Asia. Good service and prices, must go to in Phonsavan

After a day trip from Luang Prabang to Phonsavan, we had dinner at Bamboozle to settle the night before heading back to Luang Prabang the next day. Not much of a variety in Phonsavan, this is the best you can get compare to Luang Prabang.
