Really nice restaurant with really good Thai food, authentic tasting and good selection on the menu. The service was a bit slow otherwise would have scored a 5. Don't let this put you off though as I would definitely eat here again. Top notch food!!!

Very good food served in pleasant surroundings. Very busy but fairly quick service. We chose 4 completely different meals( one chicken, one beef, one fish and one veg and sampled each) All were excellent prepared and served.The red snapper was delicious. House wine was very palatable. Waiters were very helpful. Reasonably priced. Would certainly return

We arrived about 9:30 pm after driving from the airport and the kitchen was good enough to do one of the starters for me as a main. I had a selection of typical Thai offerings such as satay. My husband had the yellow curry, which was beautifully served. We ate on the side of the canal and were one of... More

I love the curry at this place and come here regularly either solo, with my husband or with friends and family. It's very affordable too, three courses cost approximately 25 euro. The location on the canals gives great views. Staff is friendly. Really great place!

For a tournament we booked the top floor, which we do about 4 times per year. Very friendly staff, very cooperative and great coffee. The room is large enough for about 60 people.

Buddha's Thai restaurant was recommended to myself and a group of friends by a passer-by by we stopped in the street on a Friday evening in the beautiful city of Leiden. Thinking we would probably not get in without a reservation, as had been the case with the other places we had tried thus far. They happily took us in... More

My wife and ate at Buddhas in mid January. The restaurant appeared unimpressive on the outside but this vanished once through the door. OIn the evening we were there, the place was buzzing, with a great ambience. The food was outstanding and the Thai chef obviously knows his (or her) business. The staff were efficient and very friendly all evening,... More
