Good price, good food

A nice place right at piazza Santa Croce, we had a delicious Thai soup, don't miss the prawn curry and coconut milk dish, is really good, we paid €64 for three people, including three main dishes plus three second dishes, one appetizer, water and a bottle of really good sparkling wine.

We walked in at an admittedly busy time and were told to wait 15 minutes. The place was full of tour groups of about 20 people each. We decided to wait and she didn't ask us for details or any information about where to wait or how she would contact us later as there were many people outside sitting on... More

We felt a bit silly going for Oriental food in Florence, but fancied a change. Buddakan really exceeded our expectations. All the food was clearly made from scratch and tasted fresh and delicious. How you get crispy cold iceberg lettuce in a hot deep fried spring roll is anyone's guess! Dinner for two (2 starters, 2 mains, 2 sides, steamed... More

Then Buddakan is the perfect choice. Located at the right side of Santa Croce church facade, just at the beginning of Via San Giuseppe is a perfect stroll to a very satisfactory ambiance and menu. Many Asian cuisines are nicely represented and all at their best.

After 10 days in Italy, we were getting tired of Pizza's and Pasta's and fast food. Wanted a change of palette and discovered this gem of a place in Florence. The place is on the right side of Santa Croce Church and you cant miss the board. They have Chinese, Thai and Japanese menu. We tried the Chinese and thai... More

Florence doesn't have the best selection of Asian cousin. However Buddakan fulfilled all of my asian cravings. Really good price for a lot of food! A must go if you are in the mood for Asian.

This is one of the best meals I have had in Florence. It's hard to find non-italian cuisines that are quality food and atmosphere, and I was shocked after having a delicious meal that the bill was so little. I strongly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for something other than basic pasta and Italian dishes. 5 stars all the... More

Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
