the place looks average, not very well kept though, but the food offered is very well prepared and the quantities are sumptuous.

The restaurant had the same menu, music and decoration than most other restaurant place of "hippie-like" touristic places of India. The waiter was not friendly and the quality of the food average.

Buddha Cafe was recommended to me by my vegetarian friend. Even though India has a lot of vegetarian options, not all are the same. Here we could find authentic Tibetan, Indian and Chinese courses at affordable prices. Besides great taste the dishes were served in a very attractive manner. Salads were served with dark brown European bread which the owner... More

The dishes were half-cooked with too much spices in them. Be it pasta or pizza. The menu would have elaborate names but the items will turn out to be a cheap rip-off of the original.
