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

Not your average Chinese food. You can actually identify what you are eating! Pleasant hard working staff. Very clean establishment. Will cater to allergies and individual preferences. GO-its great!

We have been eating at the Big Budda for a few years now and I think they have a new cook. Always before their meals had a heavy Ginger flavor, and while it was ok, was not our favorite taste. Now after we were gone North for several months, the Ginger flavor is gone. Thank You Big Budda, whatever you... More

Big Buddha is a local gem among the abundant chain restaurants of Surprise. This is the best Chinese food we've ever had, and we have had our fair share. We go everytime we are visiting my family in Surprise. If you have the chance to eat here, do it. The food is fresh, delicious, and high quality; the staff is... More

Frank, Lainie and the rest of the crew here give you good service and fantastic food. The twice cooked pork is marvelous as well as the pepper steak. Don't miss it.

One of the best we've found in Surprise. Love the Shanghai Fried Rice and Shanghai Rice Noodles. We eat hear regularly. It's a great family run restaurant who are Indonesian--not Chinese. Friendly, fun place.

We have been here a number of times, and the food is consistently delicious. They have items on the menu that you don't see on your run of the mill Chinese restaurants.l There are a number of these type restaurants in this area, and they don't hold a candle to it. They have a good been and wine menu, with... More

We've never been disappointed in the service or the food.. We frequent this location often for convenience but also for the reliability of the quality.. Always greeting in a familiar way, its family run and everyone seems to enjoy what they are doing. Not an overly fancy decor but always very clean and you know you are in a Chinese... More
