Found this nice Thai place as we drove around Jax Beach looking for something new. It's a little hard to find behind other businesses in a mall, and parking is tight, but it was worth it. Found it to be an upscale and nice Thai place with great food and service.

Good menu with vegan options (where the fish sauce is omitted from the curry sauces) The ambience is nice, but would prefer to ditch the large TV's. Keep that for the sports bars. I find it distracting for a family dinner or night out without the kids. The menu offers standard Thai options with a couple of distinctive items, such... More

Recently went to Buddha's Belly with my daughter. We had a lovely dinner. Nice atmosphere, good service, very good food. We both had Panang curry, but my daughter's was extra veggies and mine was scallop. We also had the papaya salad to start out and everything was delicious. The server made some wine recommendations and they were spot on! We... More

Good Thai food. Unique twist to standard Thai dishes makes it extra special. Large tables. Hidden in a strip mall, dark and a little old inside but the food is really good. Will be up there this weekend and plan on having dinner there again.

It is Saturday evening, it's 8:45. We are Beaches locals and end up at buddha's belly to have Thai. Have frequented this resturant and all though we have had issues with the service before we love Thai food and they generally do a pretty good job. Tonight however, although the resturant was half empty they said it would be 15... More

We decided to avoid the Valentine dinner crowds and enjoy a more relaxing lunch date. The server was prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable. The Thai ribs were tender and delicious. And the Green Curry Chicken was super! I don't eat very spicy foods so the mild, #1, level was plenty of spice. But she did offer to bring a spice tray... More

Nice small restaurant with a good atmosphere, good prices, and good food. Be careful ordering, because spicy hot is really hot. Portions are a tad small, so you might want to consider ordering some extra rice. The food can be a bit cool sometimes. A nice place to have a good quiet meal. They do have live music on Wednesdays.

We went to Buddha Thai Bistro for lunch on a weekday. I had the lunch combo with Red Curry, Salad, Soup and Tofu Satay. The red curry (with chicken) was quite tasty, but didn't contain more than 2 or 3 pieces of chicken. The salad was quite small, as was the soup. The tofu satay was about the size of... More

I'd been to this restaurant several times before I tried their Pra Ram and now my life has changed! The presentation is fun, head turner, and the dish is just delicious. It comes out on a hot skillet with a bed of spinach and broccoli topped with your protein. Then comes the best part...the warm sweet peanut sauce is poured... More

All the food is is great and I always try to order something different. I sat at the bar and ask for suggestions for dinner. The bartender suggested the Green Curry with eggplant and it was excellent.
