Expected better

With all the positive reviews, I expected better food, especially for Chinese New Year dinner. Deeply disappointed that all dishes (3) tasted the same (mostly like salt), the oil used for egg rolls and wontons tasted old, and the ingredients were fairly unrecognizable. I guess we got last year's... read more

I guess we got last year's leftovers for New Year's dinner.

We stopped in for lunch at Big Buddha on a Tuesday at 12:15 PM. We were seated quickly and our waiter arrived pronto. Lunch menu had a great selection, and we chose Sesame Chicken and General Pau Chicken, with a mild spice sauce. Each lunch order came with soup, egg roll and crab cheese puff. I also had hot Oolong... More

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
