Was invited here for Christmas meal. Surprisingly we have lived in Maidstone for good few years an did not notice this restaurant. Few years we have missed out on a very decent restaurant. We were invited to 3 chinese for chrstmas meals this month and Laughing Buddha has got to be the best. Creative Christmas menu all not found on the normal menu. Everything served in style. We've found our favorite Chinese. Will be back again and again.

The most delicious, imaginative, well presented Chinese food I've ever had the pleasure of eating.
The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the prices are sensible. Puts the rest of the Chinese restaurants in and around town in the shade. I am looking forward to my next excellent evening in the Laughing Buddha.

After another trip to one of my favorite restaurants, I felt I had to let people know about the 'Funky Buddha', food and service were as usual excellent. However I decided to finish off the evening with one of Jin's own desert creations and went for the 'Funky Buddha' it was absolutely fantastic, totally unique a great way to finish the meal, its not sweet and sickly very light on the palette, and very reasonable priced, you just have to give a try.

Have eaten in here since being The Laughing Buddha and was pleased as it now offers a take away service, we ordered the set meal foe 2 (c) priced at £23.50. Once our order was taken the young new enthusiastic owner gave us a glass of wine on the house whilst we waited for our meal to be cooked. Our take away itself was totally delicious and although the dishes were what you find on your usual Chinese menu the dishes served here were in a league of their own using fresh and unique ingredients to create a totally wonderful dish. Overall the food quality, portion size, value and service is excellent and we have now found our new regular Chinese take away.
Well done to all :)
