This was easily the worst food experience I have had in Christchurch. We ordered the Jungle curry for take-out on a Friday night, as there weren't any tables available inside (which I took as a good sign). The first thing we noticed when we got home was that it stunk of MSG. It also looked nothing like any Thai curry... More

Team dinner. We were seated at a large round table at the back of the restaurant. Really comfy seating and a great space for convivial conversation. I had the fresh Vietnamese rice parcels as an entrée. 4 arrived packed with prawns and the right amount of fresh coriander to give it some punch. I had the prawn lakhsa for a... More

I can't remember the exact name of what I got but it was a stirfry with HEAPS of cashews. It was delicious, my boyfriend got a vegetarian pad thai which was also excellent. My meat eating friend got a pork pad thai. It had a lot of pork but no vegetables to give it some variety which she was a... More

Came here with my partner on recommendation from my boss. Tried to get in on the saturday night as a walkin but was booked. Service was great and the meals even better. I am very fussy when it comes to thai but my pad thai was amazing and full of flavour. The meal was a decent size. My partner had... More

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
