Do not know if they were short-staffed but service was slow but food very good when it arrived. I made a reservation over the phone and it seemed to take them ages to find it on the computer. Not sure if some of the staff were new but some of them seemed a tad dizzy!

Dear Susanner_11,

Thank you for your feedback following your recent at Buddha Lounge in Ramsbottom.

I was disappointed to read that our service didn't live up to your expectations and I will be sure to pass your comments onto front house team members. We pride ourselves on great service and food as I am sure you can see from many of our TripAdvisor comments. However, we are currently developing and training new staff members, and performed to the best of our capabilities under the circumstances, please accept my sincere apologies.

Please do not let this be your lasting impression and I do hope you will come again and give us a second chance to deliver our quality product and service.

We took our parents to the Budda Lounge for a gift. From walking in, nothing was too much trouble, sitting us at our table, drinks, food - all of it was no trouble at all and we never had to wait. The restaurant was full and busy but staff still rallied round pleasing everyone. Food is lovely. We will be returning and highly recommend this hidden gem to everyone.

Have been to the Buddha Lounge a number of times and at first it was excellent and then seemed to over stretch itself and lost something in the food quality and ambience but visited this week and it was again first class offering a range of great food at a reasonably good price with great service and an enjoyable experience for both of us.

Good food at a variety of offers and great value for money mean the venue if affordable, a great venue for an evening out and of course a culinary delight. Thanks Guys.
