Great Thai

There are many Thai restaurants in JAX, but this is worth mentioning. Great deal on authentic appetizers during Happy Hour (7:00 pm). Only place in JAX that does the Prik Pow with ground chicken as supposed to strips, the way it's supposed to be. Much tastier. Friendly efficient service and... read more

There are many Thai restaurants in JAX, but this is worth mentioning. Great deal on authentic appetizers during Happy Hour (7:00 pm). Only place in JAX that does the Prik Pow with ground chicken as supposed to strips, the way it's supposed to be. Much tastier. Friendly efficient service and generous drink and food portions. Will come back

Excellent find in Jacksonville Beach! Everything I have had is yummy! Fresh, robust flavors and always served the right temperature, this Thai restaurant is some of the best I had ever had.... Masaman Chicken, Sum Thai Dumplings, Springfield Roll, coconut chicken soup and crab rangoon are all to die for! Can't wait to go back!

Driving down 3rd street... Most restaurants in the area are closed from 2:30 till 4:30, but not the Buddha. Greeted by a fantastic, friendly server. My meal was yummy. Drunken noodles with seafood combination and Tom yum soup. Better than I had anticipated, my server brought me a spice tray to kick it up a notch. I also enjoyed my... More

I am a bit biased because my husband took me here on our very first date and I have loved it ever since. Buddha Thai Bistroy does a great job at food presentation.... just order their Pad Thai to see for yourself. We enjoy Thai food at a few different restaurants around town but when we have something to celebrate... More

To top it all off, an automatic 18 percent was added to our bill. Frankly, such lousy service deserves nothing - they should pay us for wasting that much time. The server kept forgetting our order, did not offer drinks or dessert, did not pick up any dishes, it was awful!

Stopped and had lunch, first thing we noticed were the American waiter and waitress dressed in Thai garments unusual but ok. We had Pad Thai, Drunk-man Noodles and Garlic-n-Pepper. The Drunk Man noodles is made with spaghetti noodles (which the menu did state). but the problem was the portion size, it took less than 5 minutes to finish and I... More
