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.

I have been desperate to try this new eaterie since it opened in November 2023. A friend visited in March on my recommendation (I sent her to test it out on my behalf). She raved about it. I now know why. Stunning decor. No expense spared. This is a very classy restaurant indeed. From entry till exit, the staff were so friendly and incredibly attentive. Half way through our meal, no sooner had I coughed than the waiter appeared at my side with a glass of iced water! The food itself was a delight and incredible value. A three course lunch served from 12-4pm for only £16.95. As we sat down, we were served a glass of complimentary home made lemonade which was beautifully refreshing. I started with a traditional Nepalese street food called Sha Phaley, which is minced chicken in pastry. My wife elected to tried the traditional non-Nepalese Halloumi Fries. Both plates cleared. For main course, we both went for the delicious Himalayan Lamb which was served with rice, naan and poppadom. It was amazing. I washed my meal down with a traditional Nepalese lassi. So authentic and tasty. My dessert was a refreshing trio of sorbet... Mango, lemon and passion fruit. Oh yum. My wife loved her white chocolate and Bailey's cheesecake with ice cream (she asked for the ice cream instead of the advertised mango sorbet and in keeping with the class of the restaurant, nothing was too much trouble). After the meal I had a long chat with owner Rabi, who along with his team were just so welcoming. I definitely would recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning sometime soon. If you are in the area, it is well worth a visit. If not in the area, it is equally worth the trip. I mentioned the stunning, classy decor. I also loved the sign on the wall as you enter about your favourite place being where your friends are. So very true. ♥️♥️❤️ If I could have awarded 6 stars I would have. 5 doesn't seem enough.

Having just moved back to Johnstone after many decades away we decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary with a speculative trip to De Buddha. What a lovely surprise in visiting a place where the welcome is so warm and the decor so unusual in a good way. We stuck to the traditional Nepalese element of quite a diverse menu and were not let down. From portion size to the general balance of the dishes it was great. A few wee surprise extras from our hosts followed by a smile and we went home very happy. Will definitely be back.

We had a lovely meal here last night. Restaurant is beautiful. Friendly service and great food. 2 of us had the chicken Katmandu which was great. One of us is vegetarian and the options initially seemed a little limited, ( new menu imminent to include a lot more veggie options and veggie alternatives available on request), however the Veggie Katmandu was good and a good beer. The haggis bon bon was good, so was the mushrooms starter, I had the chicken croquettes to start which were spicy and delicious. We were told that the gardens behind are being planted out so that the herbs and vegetables will be garden to table fresh! We learned later that the new menu with lots more veggie options is due to be released imminently and we could have asked for veggie alternatives. Good to know that we can return knowing that there will be a good range and varied menu to keep us coming back again and again!😊 Overall a lovely meal in a beautiful restaurant right in the middle of town!

Me and my husband visited for the first time last weekend, from the moment we walked through the door we received great service. The decor is lovely and it felt so calm and peaceful, we thoroughly enjoyed the meal and we will most certainly be recommending to our family and friends and we will be returning again soon.

This was the best meal we have had in a very long time and we frequently eat out in the West End around Byres Rd & Finnieston. The food was delicious and the service excellent. West End quality for rural prices. Very generous portions and beautifully presented. A wee hidden gem. I don’t think anyone could be disappointed.

De' Buddha Restaurant and Bar provided an authentic Nepali-themed ambiance that added to our dining experience. The Chicken Katsu stole the spotlight with its delicious flavor, making it our favorite dish of the night. We can't wait to return for another delightful family meal.

This was our first visit as a family and it won’t be our last. The food was lovely and very reasonably priced however the service was excellent and made the experience so much better. Staff were friendly and attentive. They even went above and beyond to adapt a dish to meet my Dad’s disability which allowed him to still have a tasty dish to enjoy. Thank you!!

1st time here with family and we were not disappointed. First thing l noticed was how immaculately and smartly dressed all the staff were. Excellent choice of menu, food was delicious. Staff were all so friendly and the chef even came out and introduced himself to us. We will definitely go back.
