For a tournament we booked the top floor, which we do about 4 times per year. Very friendly staff, very cooperative and great coffee. The room is large enough for about 60 people.

Buddha's Thai restaurant was recommended to myself and a group of friends by a passer-by by we stopped in the street on a Friday evening in the beautiful city of Leiden. Thinking we would probably not get in without a reservation, as had been the case with the other places we had tried thus far. They happily took us in... More

For this restaurant seems that is more important the appearance than the food itself. The furniture is really beautiful but the food is really poor in quality, especially considering the extremely high prices you can see in the menu.

We were a party of six. The service was fast and the food tasted excellent. Unfortunately the 3 service ladies that helped at our table were all unfriendly, didn't say please or thank you at all and list their ability to smile. This made for us the case that we didn't tip and won't return in the future.

Popular thai restaurant in Leiden with nice and fresh spicy thai food. The dessert menu is a bit poor though.

The food was really good (though extremely spicey!). the only bad thing was the very slow service... I would definitely recommend eating there
