Please order this item, their version is one of the best I've tried. Nice high ceilings, beautiful foliage, decor, tasteful tropical surroundings. Even better is the food itself. I think this is a Siargao-must.

The atmosphere at Buddha was pretty non existent and there was definitely no need to book! The staff were great. The food was excellent though - especially the Satay chicken
