All time classic...

Little Buddha has been a place to be ever since it started over 10 years ago. It's a nicely decorated lounge restaurant where they serve Asian cuisine. The food is Asian, but made suitable for Europe crowd, so not that spicy. We ordered with some Kamikaze cocktails which are more or less strong... read more

My children invited me in this 'lounge restaurant' for a dinner. I was positively impressed by the interior decoration in the first place which plunges you in an atmosphere of secluded intimacy, typical oriental. It is semi-dark inside, the space is huge former warehouse), the tables are well placed, the staff is friendly and very helpful. The dishes are impressive... More

We visited Little Buddha's neighbor some days earlier (Umami) and as we passed Little Buddha then we thought of trying this nice looking place too. Alas, as nice as our dining was at Umami, as great was our disappointment of Little Buddha. Service is terrible: you have to ask everything at least three times (we had to ask five times... More

Put upstairs in the sauna, the exhaust comes out there pff hot!!! Service was terrible, all went wrong, thecwaiter tried, but... More

Little Buddha is a real favourite of mine & my hubby. The atmosphere is super cosy & fancy & the food is so flavoursome. Price wise, I think it's very reasonable. Be sure to book if you are going on a Sat night as it does get pretty busy!

Not only the food but also the restaurant and the atmosphere. I love everything about this place. We had a very friendlu waiter. I can recommand the shrimps and if you have a little bit place left the dessert with the baked bananas is incredible.

First problem was that we had to wait for 40mins until we had our starter. Then we had to wait for an hour and a half until we got our main dish. And on top of the cake: when the manager came by and asked us if everything was alright, we mentioned that we had to wait a little too... More

Nice lounge atmosphere, very cosy restaurant. Service was extremely slow but friendly. We arrived at 8 pm and got our main course after 10pm. However, our waiter (that did indeed not speak the local language, nor Thai ) was extremely friendly so we could not blame him. Wine list was poor and not very long. Food was good. Portions not...

If you are looking for a wannabe "hot" spot and you don't expect good food or service, then this is your place to be. But please stay away if you are looking for good asian food and good hospitality service. First of all, the place is situated in Antwerp, but the staff doesn't speak the local language. Secondly, the staff... More

Some of the best Thai food I have had for some time, but doesn't top Sukothai in Leeds. Not the usual Thai dishes and lack of Pad Thai made some of the menu inaccessible for someone who has issues with chilli. Service was off hand at best, had to attract attention more than once. Wine list wasn't great - ask... More
