Very good food for good price, not child friendly though

I have had a marvelous vegetarian meal at Buddha's. I went for the 3-gangen-menu, which was very reasonably priced and got a lovely three course menu with well balanced flavours and beautiful ingredients. The food is ment to be Thai but I feel that it inclines more towards Asian fusion. And that is... read more

We visited Buddah's restaurant some years ago and considered it time for a reprise. And, just like then, we we quite happy with our choice. The restaurant has a menu with a wide range of choices from the Thai kitchen. Dishes with beef, pork, chicken, fish, veggy, and even duck on the special menu. Each item on the menu is... More

Celebrated a birthday in this restaurant, and it was worth doing so! A selection of starters, maincourses and deserts was made, every one very nice to eat! Compliments to the staff that were very efficient and friendly!

This must definitely be my favourite Thai restaurant. The setting inside is very nice and cosy. Excellent service and the food is just awesome. Price are not to expensive. For €25-€30 you will have a starter, diner and desert. For me it's always a party to eat here!

In my opinion the food is as good as the other Thai restaurants in Leiden but a bit better priced. Especialy during the week days for the three course menu price of 22 euro it offers very good price quality ratio. Everything very fresh and all dishes have different taste. The dishes are not very spicy, certainly less than many... More

Nice location, possible to sit outside right on a boat on the channel. The food is good quality, and is just the right amount of spicy. Service is quick but not extraordinary. Only minus point is at you do not get much rice, one small bowl for two full dishes. it is possible to order more, for an additional fee... More

I love Thai food, and everywhere I stay I try to find the best Thai restaurant in town. In my hometown (Leiden) you have a couple of Thai restaurant and Buddhas is definitely not the best. But it looks quite luxurious and the food is okay. I've been here a couple of times and I think overall the dishes miss... More

Authentic cuisine, fresh ingredients, nice service. Best Thai in town? Probably! For larger groups, you can have your own dining room. And they even rent out boats.
