Great, but avoid the Pad thai

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... read more

Had dinner at Buddha Stix and enjoyed the food which was tasty, well presented, reasonably priced and we did not have to wait long. The atmosphere was pleasant and service was friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

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

A vey popular restaurant with amazing range of meals and helpful friendly staff. The meals arrive promptly and are always well presented and piping hot. Our family have visited many times and the quality and service is always great. Good value too.

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.

We stumbled across Budha Stix while trying to find a late evening meal. Off the road we approached the set back restaurant and found it buzzing with customers and activity. We were warmly greeted and had to wait about 10 minutes at the bar before being seated. A mix of Thai and vietnamese dishes the food is excellent and our... More

Synopsis is that food was very good but service at best was mediocre. After being seated a person whom I assumed was our server came for our drink order. My brother had not had a chance to look over the menu and asked for a couple minutes. I asked for a large glass of water. Person returned and took the... More

I previously wrote a review on this restaurant which was quite average but I enjoyed the food. I am reviewing again as my last experience here wasn't the best. The staff still weren't overly impressive and the meals took ages to come out. A spider fell in my food which I understand is not the restaurants fault but when telling... More

Off to local liquor land to buy a bottle or two and returned. Mains that were available one was off were delicious. Dessert came and... More
