This was our first trip to the Smokin Buddha, and it will not be the last. The food was amazing, you can have it spicy or not. It is a casual place to have a great meal and relax. The staff are very helpful in making your meal decision. Check this place out,you will enjoy it.

Visited this small venue restaurant, when we were there the patio was open but we sat inside. The menu is full of options, loved the spring rolls and I had one of the best pad Thai's ever tasted. The servings are rather generous ans all we tasted was delicious, brought home some Samosas and they were amazing. I surely recommend... More

Small venue with patio. Amazing food. Loved the spring rolls and dumplings. Menu options are sure to please. Wait staff friendly, knowledgeable & attentive. Band was fun! Has a play zone for small children. Watched the boats pass through the canal. Lovely evening with friends. Make a reservation or take your chance!

We went to this restaurant because the name intrigued us and the menu appealed. What an eclectic variety of food sensations! Thai, Vietnamese, Italian (naan pizza) and so many more. Two of us had the radang beef special of the day which was delicious and did not need additional hot sauce. It was a very generous serving. I had the... More

We had come across the folks from The Smokin' Budha at an outdoor event last summer and have had attending their restaurant on our 'to do' list. The restaurant is situated downtown at the old railway station within walking distance to quaint shops and the scenic Welland Canal where both lake and ocean going ships go by. The restaurant has...

Went here with my hubby a few weeks ago. We only went based on the restaurant we had chosen to go to being closed, and a friend's recommendation. Now I'm hooked. Can't wait to go back. The food was amazing (although to be honest, I took a chance and ordered a dish made with coconut milk, which I was unsure... More

Smokin' Buddha did a brilliant job of hosting our 25+ person family reunion! All the food was delicious and it was a relief to give up our usual role of chief cooks and bottle-washers :)

Delicious food, from Indian to Thai. The pork Gyoza's are an explosion of flavours in your mouth, as are all the other dishes. The regular menu will have something for everyone and the specials are always a delight, for the eyes and the taste buds.

Not many places could serve Thai, Korean, Indian, Mexican and Japanese food.... and do it right but the Smokin Buddha does it all to perfection. Thai Chili Fish to die for ...samoza's, quesadillas ... I sampled several apps and loved them all. A MUST if you visit Port Coborne but make reservations because the secrets out.

My husband and I went for dinner, and it was sub-par. We have been in the past and loved it! This time the food was bland. The dessert was perfect. The restaurant was packed and the two (2) servers were very overwhelmed and we were not attended as well as if there had been another server on.
