Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Asian restaurants and more so, Thai or Vietnamese, are my first choice on holidays to get a good helping of fresh vegetables, and Buddah Stix did not disappoint in this regard. The serving of rice to accompany our two mains of Thai Green Curry and Cashew Chicken was very generous. A side of the garlic stir-fried vegetables was excellent and full of a variety of vegetables. The only downside was the Cashew Chicken had too much dark sauce and was a little overpowering in the dish itself and made the dish saltier than I would have liked in my Asian meals. The curry was creamy, with a nice level of spice and only just a little bit on the sweet side for me. On the whole, I'd recommend and go back to dine.

We went to Buddha Stix with some reservation considering the mixed reviews but it was next door to our hotel so very convenient. It was so good we went back the next night! Service was friendly & efficient & our drinks & food arrived promptly. Over 2 nights we had the dumplings & money bags for entree then steak with ginger, the slow cooked pork, the sizzling pepper steak & the chicken pad Thai. All arrived hot & were delicious.

Staying in the hotel next door and did not want to go far for a meal. The manager at our hotel said he ate here and it was good but to book a table as it was Saturday evening. Went to the room and immediately booked online. We were a little worried on reading the last reviews so did not expect too much. The interior is nicely done, the person checking us in offered us a table in the bar which we did not want, it was not a problem to move us into the restaurant if we could wait 5 minutes which was fine with us. The server was pleasant and very helpful. We ordered 2 meals to share but asked that one be made first and the second to follow after we had finished the first which it did. The food came piping hot and was very nice. We had beef in ginger and pad Thai chicken, both very nice although I have to say that the pad Thai had only literally 2 pieces of chicken in it.Would recommend.

Friendly service, but inexperienced. Specialties like lamb off the menu, even though we were there early, so apparently they didn't buy a suitable amount. Bat tender is limited to cocktails that are on the menu, so don't ask for anything standard like an old fashioned or martini. Food was ok.

Waited over an hour for our meals which when they finally arrived were disappointing to say the least. Fake chicken on a cold plate. Uncaring and unprofessional staff. Would have sent the food back to the kitchen if we hadn't been so hungry. Definitely would not recommend or go back there.

We booked a week out with a final number of 16. At the time we asked for a set menu but when we arrived they weren't aware of what set menu we asked for and advised they may not have enough food to fill menu. Very average food and poor service boarding on arrogance. They advertise various alcoholic spirits but then advise they haven't got it...this wasn't the first visit and same happened previously. Hate writing bad reviews but certainly wouldn't revisit this restaurant

What was supposed to be a special occasion was ruined by rude unprofessional staff. I can honestly say they were the worst dressed staff I have ever come across for a dinner service in what is a smart restaurant, some staff wearing hoodies! They need to learn the art of welcoming and speaking with guests! The food was nothing like it used to be, total disappointment. Buddha Stix used to be a real favourite but we won’t be back. Late drinks, lukewarm entrees, mains underwhelming 👎 And as for only being able to book the table for 1 hour 15 minutes, wow! Maybe that’s why the food is so bad, a rush to get us to leave. Sad!

We were a group, had set menu which was very expensive and definitely not value for money. I questioned something at the end with im guessing the head waitress, and she was so rude to us, needs lesson in customer service. They will not get our business again.

Terrible service, 35 mins until we got a waitress to our table. 1 of the 5 of us still didn’t have their meal after others finished theirs

Came here for a celebration the night before my graduation of good reviews from family and friends. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED, to say the least!!!SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE!!!! Firstly went up to state my reservation and the waitress looked lost then took our table of 5 to a table set to 6. Gave us water and left. It then took 30mins for someone to take our drink order, but this was after asking (the table next to us also asked for their order to be taken at this time). We ordered food at the same time- a sharing platter and 5 main meals. The sharing platter came out with 3 items of each thing rather than 5, even though the waitress told us she could do 5…. Drinks came out 10mins later. Sharing plate was cleared and never got asked for more drinks. Meals then came out one by one, with 5min intervals in between, plates were cold. Then we had to ask for rice as 3 meals required it. The 5th meal never arrived so I went up and asked about it. The response was rude and I sat down happy that the meal was coming… it never did. The persons meal who didn’t come then called the restaurant asking to see a manager. A waitress came to the table, DEFINITELY NOT THE MANAGER, she tried to explain they were understaffed, but we couldn’t understand how that was our problem, just don’t take that many patrons?!?! The meal was asked to be cancelled and bill brought to the table. The bill being brought to the table was the fastest service we had all night. To make the evening more disappointing the meal that was cancelled was still on the bill!!!! Only two drinks and that meal were taken off before being paid for. Overall, terrible experience and will not be recommending to anyone.
