We booked for our meal as it was the Thursday before Easter break - the food was excellent good to big portion sizes and tasty the only thing that needs to improve is the wait service looking around to catch customers attention as we waited for water and for our 6th guest to be asked what he wanted to drink...

We have been to Buddha Stix several times now and we have never been disappointed. This was the first time I have made an online reservation and I was very impressed with the whole process. I would definitely book online again. Highly recommend the Guri Puff as an entree and the Black Pepper Hot Plate with prawns.

The food is a mix of various asian cuisine, fresh and tasty. We shared 3 mains between 4 of us. They offer BYO wine for $6 per bottle which makes it a very economical place to go for dinner.

This was my first time to Buddha Stix and it was a great dining experience. The service was excellent from start to finish. Two of us visited for dinner. We had the satay chicken skewers for starters and they were excellent. I had the Nasi Goreng for my main. It was really tasty but could have been a little spicier,... More

Great satay and the combo entre is a good size as are all portions. Dish heat identifier is spot on and great food all round. A great restaurant with the ambience you would expect. reasonably priced.

Just ate at Buddah Stix this evening and was thrilled that we could even get in. As is mentioned in the other reviews best to make a reservation. We just arrived here in Christchurch late afternoon and when we called to reserve we only had the option to eat early at 6pm. We started out with spring rolls as an... More

Food great, service swift, good value for money. Felt water logged, staff constantly fill your water glass a bit too frequently. Very quick, good for lunch if you don't have a lot of time.
