Just moved to the west valley from Scottsdale. I have been very disappointed in restaurant choices. I was very happy to have found this restaurant. Best Chinese food I have had in the west valley. The service was great, food excellent and it was clean. We will be going back often.

Their food is very good, well prepared, and served by a pleasant wait staff. One of the best Chinese restaurants in the west valley. Usually no wait, but the last time we were there, we had to wait about 10 minutes or so for a table, and there is not much space to wait in. Overall, I still rate it... More

To be very very honest, this place get a B minus all the way around. Average food, average service, fair prices, but I shall not return. Sorry, I won't dump on them but I can't recommend them either.

Food was fast. Service was excellent! Food tasted very delicious! Prices are a good deal for the amount of food you get. If you are here for lunch, don't order off the dinner menu. You get a better deal on the lunch menu. If we are ever back in the area, we will be back.

Had take out order Christmas Eve, around 6pm. In their defense they were very busy, they were courteous on the phone and during pick up. However, the food was just blah. I have had better in more than one place. It might just be personal preference since other reviewers seem to enjoy it. If the food wasn't purchased for me... More

We started coming to Surprise, Arizona a few years ago. I love Chinese food and it is hard to find outside of where we live in Canada. Much to our surprise, we found Big Buddha and the food is excellent. We've already been here a couple of times since we got here 3 weeks ago. If you have special requests... More

Food was very adequate in portions. However, we are used to having more "kick" to our food. We added hot peppers to our leftovers and it was better. Service was very good and it is a very nice Asian restaurant. We will try it again.

This is quite good Chinese food. Good quantities served in each dish. Will cook without MSG if asked...if you call for order & do take out, they note in your customer file whether or not you've asked previously for no MSG. Fast in restaurant service. The place is always busy, but turns over quickly. There is an outside seating area,... More
