Usually when I go out for a meal it is on a whim. I know I should book. Ive been very luck at Bhudda Stix. Even if they are busy they will fit me in somewhere. The food is FANTASTIC. I love the specialty dishes best. Always good service with a smile.

Delicious food - good for a fast and economical meal and nice alternative to take-away. Loads of options to suit most tastes, Not suitable if you want to linger and chat, as work on as second sitting system. Friendly and efficient staff.

Food was excellent, service excellent it was all great. We had no booking and just walked in. The food came out quick. The food was so fresh and tasty. We were offered extra spices with our meal and I picked the chilli, it was hot and beautiful. Wish I could have rated them more. Will return.

I had dinner here on my own recently. The staff were welcoming, friendly and efficient. There is a large range of food available on the menu, both for dine in or takeaway. I only had one course, but thoroughly enjoyed it. I will definitely be back.

A great way to start a trip! Fabulous food and friendly efficient staff. We were walk ins for 6 persons and they just made arrangements to fit us in on a busy night and sat us at the bar Service was friendly and attentive Menu was varied and meals fresh with good portions. Pricing was reasonable. Highly recommended

Had hot spicy soup to go. Delicious! Service was excellent but not dry like some places. The decor wasn't what I expected but was modern and pleasant. But honestly, who cares. The food was super and remarkably fast considering they were quite busy. If you're price conscious, I'll get two meals from my dish so it ticks that box too.... More

With a table of 6 on a busy Friday night I was expecting slower service but not here ! The staff were friendly and always close by, prices were great for the portion sizes and the quality of the food :) I now get what people rave about !
