Reservation was honoured in very busy restaurant after a small fuss.
The servers were unphased by my annoyance & the service thereafter was excellent.
Large choice of fusion Asian food. if you like something spicy, this place is good!

We had been here 3 or 4 times and the food has been lovely especially the lamb shanks however the attitude of the Maitre D or manager was appalling. Which is why we have not returned.

He may well have changed however we are not prepared to return there are plenty of other alternatives in Jackson street.

I always think of Thai of being fresh and light but my meal - chicken and cashews - was drowned in very salty sauce which made it virtually inedible. We were a party of 4 and only the lemon chicken dish seemed appealing.

Some dishes are good at Buddha Stix - try the Vietnamese rolls, or the sizzzling hot plate dish. Some things are not so good - many of the dishes are very sweet flavoured, and the service can be brusque. This restaurant is generally busy, and the staff give the impression that they are doing you a favour letting you eat there. As others have pointed out, the large number of diners plus the lack of soft furnishings make it noisy.

Visiting Lower Hutt and wanted a relaxed easy and really tasty meal. Buddha Stix delivered it all, with great service and a reasonable price. We had satay beef, and chicken, Vietnamese salad, and egg noodles with prawn. All were great. We will be back.
