I don't normally like chinese food. However, this restaurant has completely changed my mind. The food is great, the service is exceptional and the ambience is great. The food is excellent value for money, especially the early bird menu!

Had a meal here last weekend, I was on a business trip with a group of colleagues and we had pre-arranged to eat here as one of the others had eaten here before and recommended it. Table was ready for us when we arrived, and staff very attentive (not pushy). Retaurant was very clean and bright and with the large... More

We ate here on a bank holiday Monday evening. The rest of the town seemed quite quiet and the restaurant was about a third full when we arrived. We didn't have a reservation, but were seated immediately. We chose the set meal for two as the a la carte prices were a little higher than we expected, but the set... More

Decided on a takeaway. Saturday night, expected to have to wait. Rang in with order to be welcomed very politely, then to be told it would be ready in only 15 mins! Was offered delivery but decided to collect. When went to collect, was welcomed by lovely staff, and food was ready, no waiting. Got home to eat a lovely... More

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.
