Love Thai food

Popular thai restaurant in Leiden with nice and fresh spicy thai food. The dessert menu is a bit poor though.

My wife and ate at Buddhas in mid January. The restaurant appeared unimpressive on the outside but this vanished once through the door. OIn the evening we were there, the place was buzzing, with a great ambience. The food was outstanding and the Thai chef obviously knows his (or her) business. The staff were efficient and very friendly all evening,... More

For this restaurant seems that is more important the appearance than the food itself. The furniture is really beautiful but the food is really poor in quality, especially considering the extremely high prices you can see in the menu.

We were a party of six. The service was fast and the food tasted excellent. Unfortunately the 3 service ladies that helped at our table were all unfriendly, didn't say please or thank you at all and list their ability to smile. This made for us the case that we didn't tip and won't return in the future.

The food was really good (though extremely spicey!). the only bad thing was the very slow service... I would definitely recommend eating there

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 a compliment because it makes the food... 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!
