3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went for lunch and ordered fried tofu with peanut satay sauce, very dry and the dipping sauce had a mild flavor. Drunk Man Noodles lacked flavor, best dish was Pra Ram but small amount of shrimp included. Ambiance was okay but a little shabby where we sat, uneven older tables. Looked like there was a nicer side of the restaurant... More

We wanted to take a friend out to a delicious meal and catch up with good conversation. Buddha Thai fits the bill perfectly, and we all spent the day thinking about what we were going to have. The Pra Ram (with eggplant!) is the best, as is the stuffed salmon. I wanted to try something new so I tried the... More

This was our first visit. We had a very pleasant experience. Some other reviews have complained about the wait time and the service. We had a different experience. Had reservation, were promptly seated, were promptly and pleasantly served. For was well prepared and served relatively quickly. Not the best Thai food I have had but adequate. Wine list is limited... More

We have been to this restaurant twice now. Both times our server was willing to listen and answer our questions about the menu. My husband and I are both Vegan and also trying to keep to low fat. The chef was willing to alter a couple things to make sure we could keep to our diet. The Vegan spring rolls... More

Great place for a Sunday lunch - practically deserted. We had curry dishes and fried rice dishes for the most part. Loved the sticky rice presentation. We were all cautious on the heat ratings, but could have gone hotter. Food was good, service was quick, enjoyable experience.

This Thai restaurant us one of the best at the Beach. I would recommend the green curry dishes and the cucumber salad is good. I would not recommend the spring rolls which were a little less crisp than I prefer, were more like Chinese style.

We come here a few times a year. I love the food! The Pad Thai is presented in an omelet. I can't wait to go back.

My friend and I decided to try this place for takeout, so we called in our order. When it was time to pick up the order, my friend went in to get it. After about 10-15 minutes went by, I received a text message from my friend stating the staff was ignoring him. Then he came back to the vehicle.... More

Whenever I'm in town this is a must as the food is delicious and we love that there are so many vegan choices. The atmosphere is comfortable so you can come and relax.

Servers were friendly and attentive but the restaurant apparently had a large party in house that night. This party caused the kitchen to crash which left us and other diners waiting 45 minutes plus for our starters. The food itself was okay. Very disappointed that the manager or owner never entered the dining room to do damage control and left... More
