The house white wine is of good quality. We were not rushed and there was a good ambience in the restaurant . They deserve to be busy... More

My partner and I visited The Laughing Buddha together to celebrate our one year anniversary. As a wheat intollerant vegetarian with a milk intollerant partner we don't normally have a huge choice in foods. However, The Laughing Buddha had such a large selection of food that we were spoilt for choice! We had a brilliant night; the customer service was... More

We had the buffet menu, all the food was very nice and there was a good range of dishes to choose from. (Duck pancakes went down well!) Very attentive staff. Surroundings in the restaurant are very pleasant too, particularly like the "lazy Susan" in the middle of the table so no awkward leaning over to get your hands on the... More

Great food as usual. Would never go anywhere else for our Chinese in Maidstone. Buffet menu is great value and they never mind you ordering seconds of the starters. Always cooked fresh and really hot. Kids catered for, there are no worried looks when all they want to do is see the fish!
