Quick and Tasty

Group of girlfriends went to Buddha Stix prior to going to movies. Restaurant has a good atmosphere and for a Wednesday night was popular. We received good service and didn't have to wait long for our meals to be served. We all enjoyed our meals, very tasty. Fun night.

We are more likely to do a buddha six takeout as the service can be a bit average as the restaurant is so busy! The food is the best thai in Christchurch, we love Buddha stix, would definitely recommend!

Had lunch meeting with 10 other people. Our meals were served less than 15 minutes from when we placed our orders, fast as. I'm impressed. The food was pretty tasty. I had better Thai food tho. I definitely recommend this place for business meeting or meals for 10+ people. You don't have to wait long for your food.

Any time we eat here there is a good crowd and good atmosphere. The staff are friendly and the service is quick. The food is well prepared and presented and tastes good. The curries are not too spicy but I guess they will spice them up if you ask. We have been for family dinners and everyone enjoyed them.

Our son (and myself) really enjoy the chicken cashew nut, and my wife likes the massaman. After some lengthy stays in Koh Samui, we've experience a range of Thai cooking, and this passes muster. It's about the best we have found in Christchurch. But the other day we branched out to have the Pad Thai, and it was really terrible... More

Had dinner here on Sunday night of the long Queen’s Birthday Weekend. Extensive menu – ended up sharing fresh spring rolls and then the Vietnamese Seafood Broth and Lamb Shanks in Massaman Curry. Decent portions and all very tasty, especially the seafood broth, tempted to lick the plates. Service friendly and efficient. Bill came in at under $100, including a... More

Went with three others, busy on a Sunday night, but food came out fast and service was friendly. Menu was large and for my vegetarian son, great wide range of options for him. Tasty, aromatic food, good value. My only negative would be the sense we wouldn't be welcome to linger, the reservation I made on line for 6.30 told... More

Went once when at Christchurch and ordered Thai food for our group. The food was excellent. Being vegetarian, there were several options available at the restaurant. The ambience was also nice. The place was also full when we arrived, so it is a popular restaurant. I highly recommend this place.
