One of the best restaurants i've been to on my entire Philippine trip! Not only is the food delicious but the staff is soo friendly and welcoming! The service is top notch (unlike many other places in Siargao) & they have wifi which is a...bonus! During our stay in Siargao we came back 4 times and even scheduled surfing with their staff (which was so fun i definitely recommend going with them). To top it off, there is a sweet doberman, reef, who stays at the resto during the day!!! Honestly would recommend a 100%, my only regret was not booking to stay in their resort :)More

The Thai food here didn’t disappoint! I had the pad Thai a couple of times. Definitely order the Asian greens as an entree! We stayed at the Buddha and the rooms were very comfortable!

We visited as the previous night the restaurant was full. Unfortunately a few dishes were not available the night we went. Ordered veggie curry and veggie skewers. Taste was just ok. Maybe worth another visit as this place does get good reviews.

There are only a handful of places in Gen Luna that I would rush back to and Buddha’s is right up there. I ate there so many times on my trip and nothing disappointed unlike a lot of other places on the island. It’s a...hard choice, between the Pad Thai and Massaman curry for their best dish, you’re probably best just going twice and having both!!More

Truly yummy thai food with fresh veggies in th mix! They host a varied menu by island standards, often have daily specials and offer enough vegetarian and vegan options that it's always on my list of possibilities for lunch/dinner. VEGANS make sure that you clearly...explain to waitstaff your diet so that milk and cream and such doesn't wander into your curry.More

The staff are extremely attentive and food is absolutely five star. By far the best restaurant in Siargao. Truely authentic Thai food.

The feel is very relaxed and nice, very attentive and polite staff. We ordered a mix from the menu; pork satay skewers, Tom Yum soup and the chicken pad thai. The food was cooked well however definately room for improvement! The pork skewers were juicy...and not over cooked but the peanut satay was bland. The chicken pad thai- all elements cooked well but there was a balsamic vinegar or similar taste which took it from a pad thai to something completely different. So not essentially a pad thai. The tom yum soup was ok, again elements cooked well but not authentic. The food overall was not bad but not authentic thai either. From the cost I would expect a little more from the restaurantMore

Unfortunately the chicken pad thai wasn’t even close to the genuine pad Thai. It tasted more like noddles with carrot. Tofu inside smelled like old sponge. We have also ordered pandan lemongrass ice tea - tasted like water, therefore we refused to pay for it....The only plus was Thai tea.More

I've been extending my stay in Siargao since 2 weeks ago because I've been loving the vibe so much and I've been noticing this sign that says "BUDDHA THAI CUISINE" just a few blocks away from my Resort. Went at 8pm-ish for dinner and the...place was already packed with people. The Waitress led me to a table for 2 bcause obviously it was just me. So here goes my first review on TripAdvisor. Service: The best service I've experienced in Siargao, the staff spoke English very well and understood my foreign accent. My order was repeated and my Beer was served immediately. Food: I asked the lady for their best sellers, check this out: Som Tam - light and fresh and just the right amount of sour and spice with crunch! Chicken Satay - tender and well marinated, serving was generous with 3 skewers Pork Massaman - so good, the soup was THE BEST! Shrimp Pad Thai - okay so by now I was already full but had to try Pad Thai, of course. Buddha doesn't disappoint! Mango Sticky Rice - sweet, warm and yummy Really impressed with Buddha, I shall return for the famous SURFER's BREAKFAST PLATE and BANANA PANCAKE!More
