Extremely impressed with Buddha Lounge Whitefield. We normally visit the Ramsbottom Branch and fancied a change from the norm. The Lady Manager and her team are very welcoming and professional, their knowledge and service etiquette is outstanding. The restaurant's modern and clean, we also love the fact we can see our food being cooked (would be great if you could have our table number or names on the screen too). The food presentation and taste have had real passion put into it, as each dish Thai & Cantonese is unique and full of flavour. Highly recommended a place really at the top of their game as Trip Advisor and other guests have clearly spotted. Thank you for the wonderful evening, we will be sure to visit both your restaurants equally from now on.

Dear Response1,

I was absolutely overwhelmed to read your wonderful review for the Buddha Lounge in Whitefield and I am most grateful for you sharing your experience in TripAdvisor.

I have shared your kind comments with the entire team and they were as thrilled as I was to learn that you had a fabulous experience with us.

A lot of changes were made in the past few months to improve and uplift food quality standards and front house service standards. Evidently all of our efforts had proven to be worthwhile as we have been receiving numerous positive feedbacks from our customers like yours. I am pleased to announce that Buddha Lounge in Whitefield was awarded the honor of the Certificate of Excellence in 2013 in Tripadvisor.

I was pleased to read that our front house team members are professional and welcoming, and the service we provided was outstanding in all rounds. I was also pleased to read that you were impressed with our food offerings in terms of food quality and presentation. We are very fortunate to have our Executive Head Chef Dea Phumsri who is so passionate in creating wonderful traditional and authentic Far East Asia dishes for everyone to enjoy and lead our kitchen team to provide highest level of food service. I was pleased to learn that you enjoyed the most of the live cooking shown on our televisions.

We all sincerely appreciate you recommending us to the others and look forward to welcoming you back to the Buddha Lounge very soon again.

With best wishes,


Theresa Miller

I have been to the buddha lounge 5 times now, the last visit was for my 1st wedding anniversary and have to say the food was absolutely gorgeous,(as it has been every time we have been) and the service was excellent !!! Very friendly and welcoming staff ! When we booked on line we put on that we were celebrating our anniversary and when we arrived there was a lovely card and a bunch of flowers for me !!! What a lovely touch by the buddha lounge staff. Had a lovely evening and will certainly be returning again. I really do recommend this gorgeous restaurant you won't be disappointed.

We visited as a party of 6 on Saturday night and it wasn't particularly busy as the weather was hot and I guess people were having BBQs. We had a variety of Chinese and Thai dishes and were thoroughly impressed with the quality - each dish appeared to be individual rather than derived from the same base. We particularly enjoyed the Thai green chicken curry, Singapore noodles and the sea bass.
The restaurant was clean and they came and wiped the table in between courses. Whilst the manager and one of the waiters (Matthew) were friendly and welcoming the others didn't appear to be enjoying their job very much and seemed to struggle to find a smile; very functional.
Overall, great variety and quality of food for a fair price.

Our first visit too this restaurant for our daughters sixth birthday. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The menu was easy to navigate and the food was exquisite. The restaurant found out it was our daughter's birthday and presented her with a cake and sang too her which I personally thought was a lovely gesture. Its not the cheapest on the market but if you want quality then you expect too pay for it. We will certainly return again in the not too distant future.

We took advantage of the menus available to 7pm. The choice available is wide and satisfied the diverse tastes of our party of five. Three of us arrived early and were allowed to wait at the table and relax with a drink. We were made welcome and the atmosphere was pleasant. The service was attentive without being overbearing. I would recommend it.
