Wanted a place to take student daughters and a friend that wasn't too expensive but was nice enough and we could have a glass of wine. Very happy that we chose Buddha Stix, it exceeded expectations from the outside. Tasty food, well presented ,attentive service....Enjoyed the warmth inside.

It was fully booked on Sunday evening when we arrived, but they let us have a table if we left by 7pm. The first thing I noticed was that it was warm inside, the lower priced Asian eateries don't use their heaters. Great food and service with prices to match. The pork spare ribs starter was a bit gristley, but... More

Delicious food - we had to take away but it was great! Nice modern atmosphere - quite funky! Our food was sitting waiting for us, however, and we got it because a waiter asked us if we were waiting ...

Been here twice with the girls from work. Always a good idea to book (even on week days). I did this online through their website and it was so easy with a confirmation email received straight away. Service is prompt and friendly. Great choice of food so it takes me ages to decide what to have! I went with chicken... More

Our family enjoys the lunch meals so much it is becoming a habit to return there whenever we can. A 7 day dinner restaurant open from 5-9.30pm; or lunch 5 days, 12-2.30pm. Has a very wide choice of Asian soups, salads, stir frys, curries & rice/noodle meals. Washed down with impressive beer, wine, spirits & cocktail selection, and (unusual for... More

A restaurant you always need to make a booking for, but such great food. Their devine fresh Vietnamese spring rolls are my favourite starter. I'm a great fan of Larb Gai, theirs is good, but I prefer it spicier, will just need to remember to ask. I have a very limited wine preference so it's really nice they are BYO... More

We were taken by local friends and liked it so much we managed to get in again for a final meal before leaving Christchurch. Great food, great service, better than most, well worth a visit if you like interesting or spicy Asian style food. Hard to get a table unless booked, but well worth the effort and planning.

We dined early, got amazing service form the staff. Drinks and entree arrived very quickly. Mains were a seafood curry, which was amazing and sweet and sour which was very good. Dined with a companion who had never tried shelling a curried prawn with a spoon, sorry about the mess, hope you found the prawn. Thanks for a memorable dining... More

We visit this restaurant apprx 3 monthly, and it keeps getting better. Pluses are that the menu and flavours seem to get better, the BYO wine continues, and service is great. Portion sizes are ok and speed of service is fast. Cons are few - prices have risen a lot above inflation over the past 4 years and it is... More
