Bamboozle Mexican Restaurant


For those hankering for Mexican one option is Bamboozle. It is a relaxed and friendly restaurant and bar with spicy food and great drinks. It is a new place and it is expected that over the time Bamboozle will garner some good reviews.

Mexican restaurant, Bamboozle, is located on the road that runs parallel to Haad Rin Nai, the smaller sunset beach. It is right in the heart of Haad Rin.

On the menu are fajitas, tortillas, quesadillas and other spicy treats. They are served with homemade salsa and guacamole. There are also vegetarian options and organic salads. For drinks there is sangria and cold beer as well as mojitos (naturally).

The restaurant itself is a typical Thai building with an open front. There are inside and outside tables. It is a fairly spacious area that also has room for a pool table. On one wall is a large flatscreen TV showing live sports. Perfect for those looking to watch a game but not in a rowdy bar atmosphere.

To be fair, it is hard to write a glowing review of this restaurant. It is ranked near the bottom of the 265 restaurant list that Trip Advisor has compiled for Koh Phangan. Bamboozle has only 2 reviews as I type. One says ‘awful’, the other: ‘missing its potential’. The last comment is perhaps the most encouraging. New restaurants need a time to ‘bed’ down and to get their food and service at a consistent level. If the restaurant stays open it will no doubt get better. I hope so as I love Mexican food.

The restaurant is open 7 days a week from 10am to late.
