A meal out tonight with the family at the Laughing Buddha, our second visit. The food was actually pretty good, but the evening rather spoiled by the very slow service with long waits between courses - an hour between starters and main.

We usually call in here on the way to the cinema which means we sometimes get there early enough for the early bird menu which at £8.50 for a mains and £2.50 for the combination platter is really good value for money. The restaurant is clean and tidy, service is good, the food is freshly prepared, always tastes good and... More

Laughing Buddha was our last resort as our usual haunts were fully booked. The majority of reviews on here all looked positive so we thought we couldn't go wrong, we were very wrong. Anyone who likes the food at this restaurant needs there head checking. Our starters were very poor and dripping with oil. We waited an hour between our... More

Good Chinese food and good service, both eating in and take-away. Most recently, had set menu for 3, which was plenty of food and a good selection.

We went here for a birthday meal last night, there were 8 of us. The staff made us feel welcome, arranged drinks and were very hospitable. The food was delicious, probably the best Chinese food I've ever had. I will happily go here again - real treat. The restaurant is clean, warm, nice decor - all spot on!

We ate here mid week after reading the previous good reviews on Trip Advisor and whilst staying overnight in Loughborough. The staff were welcoming and attentive and the ingredients, quality and presentation of the food were very good. We ate from the full price menu, there was a lot of choice and I would recommend the spring rolls as they... More

We decided to go to this place because we needed something smoother after some Indian food. We were not very hungry and just asked for two main courses plus some noodles. Noodles we didn't like so much but roast Cantonese duck and chicken with lemon were really good. Prices are around 8-10 pounds per main course and with two glasses... More
