Booked with a Tastecard and got the whole thing half price. Food as always exemplary, service polite and speedy. Nice intimate atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

Been several times as it's very local to us. The food is always great and plentiful. Yet we always order too much!
Our male waitor was lovely and really attentive. Had a sharing platter for two as a starter. Delicious and very varied. For main a had chicken pad thai. I have to be honest I have only tried a few dishes on the extensive menu. Only because I have found my favourites!
I'm sure we will be back soon.

visited on a friday night on the spur of the moment, ordered a couple of beers while we read the menu
first pint of singha extremely flat, ordered another that was worse, told the waiter to take it back who said he wouldnt charge for one of the beers ???
i would have thought they wouldnt charge for any of them
anyway onto the food, we have been to thailand a couple of times and love the food, this food wouldnt compare
we ordered a starter each, very small portions
onto the mains that where plonked in front of us 10 seconds after our starters where cleared away
the mains where tasty enough, but nothing special
all in all we was in and out of the place in 45 minutes and
£50 lighter, even the very attractive thai front of house lady commented on how quick our trip had been, not us that wanted the trip to be so rushed
all in all it was not great

Dear stevefrombury,

Thank you for your recent comments on Buddha Lounge Whitefield, your feedback is extremely valuable to us.

I am very disappointed to hear we did not live up to your expectations. Our reputation for delivering outstanding value for money is as strong as ever. Our food portions are strictly monitored and standardized across two branches. Each of the dish is freshly made to perfection by our highly skilled chefs to bring along the Thai cuisine for our customers to experience the extravagance of Thai culinary.

I do apologized for the draught beer was not served to you in perfect condition, we have addressed the problem and rectified it immediately. However we offered you two bottles of Peroni beers and only charged you for only one pint of Singha beer. I am sorry that our member of staff have not explained to you clearly.

With regards your comment about main course served to you within 10 seconds after starters being cleared. I will circulate your observations to the team and will address your issues to ensure no repeat.

Please do not let this be your lasting impression and I do hope you will come again and give us a second chance to experience our full hospitality of Buddha Lounge.

With best wishes,

Theresa Miller

My fiancé and I decided to dine here from a friends recommendation and I must say it's the best Thai I've ever had! We are very picky but the service was quick, the food was fresh and so so delicious! Have been here twice and always plan to return because we crave their spring rolls and their duck pancakes are just to die for! And I won't even get started on the prawns and seafood- our fav place so far!

Brought 12 staff to the restaurant, many of which went for the banquet menu, we were very happy when staff offered to change a good number of dishes on the menu, and most dishes were absolutely beautiful.
The venue is a welcoming place, and the staff very friendly. I would definitely return.
However - my only grumble would be the quality of the "chicken" served on the meals. The Beef was tender, the lamb was stunning and for someone that doesn't like the ribs, I even loved the ribs! But the chicken was a million miles off the mark. I don't know what it was, but either change supplier or change the way its cooked.
