This is one of my favourite Indian restaurants. The service is not what it used to be but the food is still to die for. When I say that the staff are all very pleasant and friendly but they uni students and not experienced. Don't go on a football or rugby night.

After reading the reviews I emailed my date (my son!) and tried talking him out of it, he assured me the kids from Uni said it was great food! I gave in, we went there and I was expecting all bad things. When they said the menu was an all you can $29 deal I thought there was a catch... More

Person who served me is not fit for front of house! She was monosyllabic not only to me but her very pleasant female colleague. I overheard a man paying his bill and trying to compliment the restaurant to her. She barely ace lodged him! Food average but then $12 special. Definitely a no return for me.

have visited this venue previously and whilst that experience was average we decided to give them another chance. The result was again very average. The curries were small and all tasted the same, chicken,beef,lamb. The nan bread was not properly cooked and the rice lacked flavour. We will not be going again.

We were in Perth for several days and wanted to have an evening in one of the suburbs, and wound up eating at Buddha Bar. The food was very good, but what stood out was the Garlic Nan, which had some ingredient in it that made it smell and taste irresistible! The place is nicely decorated, stylish and modern, and...

The food was great, in particular the naan bread. Although slow to take our order, once placed the food came fairly quickly. As with some other reviewers we found it quite noisy, might be an idea to try and separate the tables just a little.

We were looking for a nice place for a quick meal before a concert. Without booking we found the Buddha Bar conveniently located in Rokeby Road Subiaco. The restaurant was nice and quiet despite being on the busy street. The range of the menu was excellent as was the drinks list. Service was excellent and very quick. Recommend the goat... More

Indian food was delicious. We thought it would be Thai, given it was called the Buddah Bar. They could use more details in the window! The service was very slow and there were only three full tables! Fantastic value for money, though. Would recommend ordering the side dishes with mint yoghurt and mango. The naan bread was perfect. House Shiraz... More

It’s one of those stumbling onto a small restaurant, not even reading the name of it- just following your nose and I’m glad we did. It was relatively early for lunch a bit late for brunch. Our two coffees were soon joined by onion bajis, naans and two curry plates. – Don’t ask me which please because I’m seriously useless... More
