“The best ribs ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

We have been going to the Laughing Buddha for fifteen years and can honestly say they have consistently provided great food, excellent service and good atmosphere! You have just got to try the barbecue spare ribs for starters or the crispy duck with pancakes. Just superb!

“Nice atmosphere - fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

As a self confessed Cantonese food addict - I can highly recommend this quirky little restaurant. I visited last week, having dined there on a visit 2 years previously. I was not let down - the service, food and atmosphere were all as I remembered - excellent. This restaurant is a "must visit" if you are in the vicinity of Douglas.

“Good service and food ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

I visited here and the service was very good and the food was nice too. Probably not the best Chinese food I have ever had but perfectly OK. I had the Prawn starter and the Cantonese Steak for main. the steak was a little on the tough side but everything else was fine.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

I ate here with some business colleagues a few week back. The food was delicious and varied. We were absolutely full afterwards and we were all very happy with the quality of the food.

It is a small-ish place but very cosy and has a good atmosphere. I will definitely return on my next trip to Douglas and I thoroughly recommend it. Crispy duck with pancakes is particularly recommended.
