This one is a keeper

We decided to go out last minute on a cold Sunday night and booked a table for 5 pm via the website. My husband had been there for business before and loved the food. I checked out the reviews first and some people reckoned the portions were quite small, so we both opted for a starter. He had the... read more

Popped in for a quick takeaway and had the chicken fried rice, by far the worst I have had ever, and I eat chinese at least once a week. Quantity was poor and the container was a third filled with salad ( coleslaw) and I had only 4 pieces of chicken in the whole meal and they were tiny, it... More

This was our visit to Buddha Stix. On the positive side, the menu was extensive, the prices competitive (average $22) and the food delicious. Our party of four shared the meals we ordered, and we felt the portion sizes were sufficient. The only negative is that the service let them down. Our meals didn't arrive at the same time, and...

There were 4 of us. We were greeted and felt very welcome. The decor is great and the menu has something for everyone. We ordered a mix of dishes and a bottle of Main Divide Gewurtztraminer for the table. I had the chicken Musaman Curry which was very tasty. It is a sweet dish but great with the rice and... More

As far as Thai food goes in Christchurch, this is among the best we've found. I definitely recommend a booking for the weekend (bookings can be made online or over the phone). Despite being located off busy Riccarton Road, Buddha Stix is tucked back in its own private lot and the massive Buddha head statue and greenery that greets you... More

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.
