We had a reservation and our table was ready with a reserved sign on it. Service was impeccable and the restaurant was clean and inviting. Our waitress was very upbeat and fun to work with. The meal was delicious and the presentation was very nice.

Everything was wonderful! The food was excellent, the ambience was eye appealing with the perfect music to set the mood, and my server Sunny was very attentive and had great customer service skills. The only complaint I have is that I don’t live nearby to...come back.More

How I love this place. Not only tje food is delicious but theor service is so polite and friendly and genuine. This is a family own restaurant on the corner of 10th Av North and 3rd street just some blocks away from the ocean. From...their app selection to the many delicious curry they have this is a place you dont want to miss. My favourite app crab ragoon and tuna poketini. Entre would be Eggplant Pra Ram served with white rice. This is tje peanut sauce dish yummy yummy as my son would say. If you like noodles more then you will enjoy Drunken noodle which are spicy already but if you like it mild all you need is ask for they like to make their customers happy here. Now if you like your mouth on fire Green curry or red curry is for you they will also provide extra spices to make it hotter should this be your preference. For the soup lover Tom kha is a very tasty unique flavour it is made with coconut milk. They also have a most delicious wonton soup. So many choices here. They also have a back space which I have seen used fro private parties before. Altogether a must visit should you find yourself hungry in Jax BeachMore

Curbside pick-up during the shut-down has been a life saver. Before the shut down, it has been our favorite Thai restaurant. The staff will remember you and what level of spice you prefer

Travelled with husband on business and decided to try this place because we love Thai food. You always take a chance and we were fortunate in this case! Family owned business and operated with pride. The yellow curry with chicken was husband’s choice and he...let me have a couple of tastes but wanted to keep it all for himself! I had the basil and green curry fried rice with shrimp. Scrumptious!!! Their basil mule is an excellent cocktail as well. We will go back! Pat is an excellent server!More

Great idea for our family - everyone is either vegetarian or flexitarian, and we all love Thai food. Our first time at Buddha's Belly - the decor was very relaxed. Everyone (except me) in our party of 6 was disappointed in the food. In general...- the consensus was lacking spice and flavor. Most at our table prefer vegetable focused vegan food, rather than soy meat substitute. I really liked everything I had - would have liked more spice, if it wasn't as busy I would have asked for some condiments. Service was slow - we accumulated several dirty dishes crowding up the table. We all agreed that we would like to try Buddha Belly again with their regular menu.More
