On arriving to this simple and local Chinese restaurant with a very noisy party in full swing, really didn't know if we had chosen well. How wrong we were! The owner tried his best to sit us out of ear shot of the party then never took his eye off our needs while supplying Top food and service. Word of... More

I called in for a meal on my own whilst on a work trip. The place was recommended by a couple of locals and this turned out to be a good recommendation. I found it a little expensive compared with the area I live in but having said this the food was very tasty and well cooked and presented. A... More

7 of us were recommended the laughing Buddha while out here for the TT. We turned up at the door and immediately got a feeling we were in my Nan's front room. Old decor, poor lighting and heating too hot. The owner was very controlling towards other staff. They didn't really do anything by themselves without the owner instructing them.... More

Having read the reviews on trip advisor we decided to try the Laughing Buddha on a recent holiday to the Isle of Man. We were greeted by the owner who proceeded to look after us extremely well. The food was excellent as was the service. We would certainly recommend this restaurant when in Douglas. It is such a pity that... More

Although a little difficult to find, and not that appealing to look at, this is a little gem. The food and service were both of a high standard, at a reasonable price. Of particular note was the friendliness of the staff. Well worth a visit.

Our family's favourite Chinese restaurant. Laughing Buddha is always consistent and the owner values his customer's. The banquet D was excellent as usual and there is always plenty of food - in fact we usually struggle to finish it all and we do try ! Staff are happy to accommodate any changes too like boiled rice instead of fried etc... More

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.
