We chose to eat here on sat night as so many friends had recommended! We were sorry we chose to eat here - the food was ok (we had honey lemon chicken and clay pot rice) apart from our starter which was deep fried beyond belief. What really let this place down was the service and the music. Initially the... More

Buddah Stix is one of my favourite restaurants. The food is always fresh and delicious. The service is fantastic. On my last visit in particular our server was so attentive to our group and took care of all our needs quickly. I love the atmosphere and the prices are extremely reasonable!

Buddha Stix was recommended to me by a friend, so I decided to book a group for my birthday dinner. Even though the group was larger than they normally take, the staff were extremely accommodating and welcoming. We had the set menu, and everything was delicious. I would definitely go back, and recommend Buddha Stix to my friends. Thank you!
