“great location, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

we stayed at budhaview for 5 nights before heading to cambodia. we cant really fault this place - the place was perfect for our needs, the room was large and clean, the bed was comfortable, and the ensuite impressive. The food was amazing and this was clearly proven with how busy the restaurant was during the day and evening. you may have to wait for a table but there is a bar area and seating area. the staff and owners are great and good fun to have a chat with. evenings spent watching the sun go down at the end of the pier were lovely and relaxing. the only downside we can really think of is that its a 2 minute tuk tuk ride to the beach or a 15 minute stroll and im only saying this as people may not believe how good budhaview is if there isnt a negative! the beach nearby is also lovely, relaxing and quiet. we would like to thank the owners and staff for a truly enjoyable stay.

Unforgettable stay in Buddhaview!!! Excellent food in it's cosy restaurant, lots of tasty choices.
Rooms are nice and tidy...
If I would mention (a very small) disadvantange it would be that the shared bathrooms are situated next to the kitchen so taking a shower at night... :o)
The friendliness of Jan, Luc and his personnel is beyond expectations!!!

Certainly going back at the end of the year!

I didn't actually stay here but was reccomended to eat here by a friend. I wasn't let down! The food and view were equally amazing and needless to say every time I visit koh Chang I dine at buddha view.
Stunning!

A place with a lounge mode around it. Great, but a bit expensive. We got the barracuda and red curry, with was very tasty. The hole restaurant, was made out of teak tree and looked very cool and completed the very nice interior.

I've lived in Thailand for 6 years and The Buddha View is easily the best restaurant I have dined in. It's not really a place you'd stumble on. We only found it after the owner, Jan, saved our lives at sea!!! (but that has no bearing on the review...haha). It's located at the end of the pier in Bang Bao and offers stunning sunset views as the restaurant is open ended facing out to the bay.
The atmosphere is very relaxed. The chilled background music is at just the right volume where you can hear it clearly, but it wont drown out conversation. The staff were extremely friendly & attentive. The decor was eye catching and clean. There are the conventional tables & chairs, but we sat at the end of the pier where there are cushions on the floor, which is quite common in Thailand, but the floorboards have been removed to allow your legs to freely dangle above the water. It has a glass topped table, so you can looked down and see a variety of sea life swim by. Once the sun has set there are spotlights under the pier directed at ornate statues.
The menu has a good choice of western & Thai foods at reasonable prices. The staff spoke decent English and would try their best to accommodate any special requests. Our meals were brought out at the same time which is a VERY rare thing in Thailand! This is the first restaurant I've been in where I wasn't looking at my watch every minute waiting for the food. It's also the first restaurant where I didn't leave as soon as the bill was paid.
On our trip we'd planned to eat every meal in a different place, but after going to Buddha View we went back every night for the rest of the holiday :-D

We stayed at Buddha View for one night at the end of our stay in Thailand. It is a picturesque, charming place. The restaurant has a wonderful setting and the rooms are elegant with wood panelling and tiled bathroom. When we reached Bangkok ,I realised that I had left my mobile phone in the room. After an email, the phone was located and Jan arranged for it to be posted back to me in England at no cost to me (although the postage sosts nearly as much as one night's stay). What honesty and service! We look forward to returning.
