Fantastic fresh food with great service makes this place a must. Be prepared to book as appears to be always busy.

Lovely place, phantastic staff, good prices and very nice food! I went for lunch and had duck with peanut sauce which was delicious. The menu explains exactly what which curry contains and what it tastes like. I will definitely come back!! Thank you

We found the Buhdda by chance, how lucky we were! Great food, good service, despite being nearly full (seats about 30). Main courses around 20 Aus Dollars, starters around 7. If you want wine or beer with your meal you need to bring your own,...More

Surprisingly good in a small tourist city. Not too salty and nice that the noodle comes with little species. Portion is good for one person. Good customer service. Looks like it is a busy Thai restaurant in town.
