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.

Have eaten here numerous times and have never been disappointed. Tasty Thai food and, although the restaurant is quite large, it still has a friendly and cozy atmosphere.

Had a wonderful dinner here. Even on a Wednesday night it was quite busy. I guess you would definitely have to make a reservation for a Friday or Saturday night. Stylish but warm atmosphere. Friendly and efficient staff. Had a lovely appetizer, the Thai chicken satay; tasty peanut sauce, so full of flavour. For mains I had a beef curry... More

On a cold winter's evening this was a delightful find. The food we ordered was well presented and very tasty. The outlook was great. The main downside was that the vast majority of dishes were based on fired food.

Thai food very good here! I really enjoyed my lunch here, dishes are very coloured, rice with cicken and vegetables is something sooo good! Prices are not high and personnel is very kind. They have also menu for vegetarians. Also, nice location just on the canal, Very recommended.

The restaurant is very cosy, the food is really good, you have a great menu choice (also for vegetarians) and it doesn't cost a lot. Can't think of a negative point really. Just go!
