Excellent food, plenty of choices. Restaurant was very busy but wait times were not too long. Definitely need to book your table in advance.

Buddah Stix is one of my favourite restaurants. The food is always fresh and delicious. The service is fantastic. On my last visit in particular our server was so attentive to our group and took care of all our needs quickly. I love the atmosphere and the prices are extremely reasonable!

Buddha Stix was recommended to me by a friend, so I decided to book a group for my birthday dinner. Even though the group was larger than they normally take, the staff were extremely accommodating and welcoming. We had the set menu, and everything was delicious. I would definitely go back, and recommend Buddha Stix to my friends. Thank you!

We expected better food than what we got. Summer rolls had too much water in the rice paper wrapper so the texture was not appealing. Spare ribs appetizer was nothing special. Pad Thai was okay but rather tomatoey and the lemon grass chicken was just okay. Ambiance was nice but had nonpleasing music blaring too loud for conversation and our... More

Did a spontaneous last minute booking with them on a Saturday evening and they were happy to accomodate. Service was amazing. Keeping us updated how far the food was. "Chippie" the person who greeted and seated us was a pleasure to deal with. Food is a mixture of Thai, Japanese and also Vietnamese. Very clean and tidy and modern premises.... More

We were looking for a Thai restaurant near our airport hotel. We managed to get a last minute booking at Buddha Stix. It was busy, I understand why; service and food was perfect! Ample parking in the front and out the back. Do yourself a favour and book a table.
