Stopped by on a Monday evening for dinner. They had one of my favorites Wor Won Ton Soup. We also go the pork fried rice and some crab Rangoon. The soup was a huge bowl full of shrimp, pork, chicken, vegetables, etc. Very good. The other dishes were very tasty as well. Fast service and fair pricing.

We've lived in the Phoenix area for 11 years and have been looking for a Mom and Pop type Chinese restaurant that serves food, and most importantly pork fried rice that we love and tastes like the rice we "used to get back east." Our spur of the moment decision to give Big Buddha a try resulted in ticking off... More

This was my second time here and my wife's first. We got in about 30 minutes before closing on Sunday and I'm sure they were all ready to go home. My wife got sick from undercooked food. My food was good. That's why the 3 stars.

Heard about this place from friends and family. One afternoon as I was driving by, decided to do lunch there and see what people were talking about. The menu was quite diverse with plenty selections. The food was really good and the portions were humungous! Will eat there again.

On the advice of a friend, ordered take-out and it was awful. I don't know whether it was because they knew we wouldn't see it or taste it til we got it home, or what. May well be good if you eat there. But don't order take-out.

My husband and I ate at this restaurant twice and each time had to wait to be seated. I did not mind since it was busy. This most recent visit I was ready to wait since it was busy until the young lady that took our name made a comment behind our back while we were walk out side to... More

First I must say I have not stayed to eat in the restaurant, we have always done take out. The restaurant is always busy. The take out is always ready when we arrive and is always hot when I get home. Prices are good and the food is excellent! Recommend highly.

We and our friends were first time visitors. The place is small but the food was wonderful. They do a huge take-out business as we sat near the front entrance. None of us were disappointed with the food or portions that were served. It is not normal for me to take any food home. In this case there was just... More
