Not the poshest place to go but good quality and value. We visit regularly and have never been disappointed. Good wine list at reasonable prices. Lunch is excellent value. Recommend twice cooked pork and the aromatic crispy duck.

Having read a previous Trip critique slating this establishment, I approached my visit with trepidation. It was only my friends saying that I should ignore the bad revue. I am glad that I did. We were greeted at the door by a smiling member of staff, who took our coats & showed us to our table & left us with... More

Wasn't greeted by anyone when we walked in and was left hovering around for 5 minutes, eventually we went over to the staff and told them we had a booking to which they pointed to our table and didn't even walk us over to it. We sat for 30 minutes with no drink! Eventually we got served so ordered a... More

We found it about tripadvisor and just can recommend it!!! Perfect drinks, nice staff and the best tapas I've ever tasted. Great spice, nice ambience and you can choose between private talking and the street life of Ubud along the monkey forest street. Laughing Buddha welcome you anytime with a great offer of Balinese food and its best cocktails. Try... More

Dont be off put by how this restaurant looks from the outside tucked at the back of the main high street, it's fab. The owner is very attentive and so willing to provide you a great experience and the food is wonderful. Make sure you book in advance, well worth a visit

I booked my sister and brother-in-law in The Laughing Buddha when they just visited us to see the Biking Festival. Unlike me, they adore chinese food. They asked if there was a "good" chinese restaurant. I had heard lots of people rave about The Laughing Buddha so I booked them in. Well, they loved it! They said "Chris" the owner... More

Visited on a hectic Saturday night during ClassicTT/Manx GP, and were offered a table for our party of three despite being very busy. Our selected banquet was very good and cannot fault the quality. However, it did take over two and a half hours to serve us, with long delays in between courses. This was acceptable to some degree as... More

This is a night I start to be able to taste the week before it happens :o) Food is always great, service is always friendly, prices are a little high if you compare them against normal Chinese eateries but this is probably the best on the Isle of Man and portions are big. I always leave unable to eat more... More
