Never been here before but after reading the positive reviews i thought why not try the restaurant out for myself.

If there... More

Been previously, food is average. Overpriced for what it is really. Good atmosphere. Not keen on the bar area on weekends. Tried to organise a group booking for 15-20 people however they did not want to know and did not bother to get in touch; clearly don't want the business. Needs customer service

Food was very bland the hand pulled chicken and sweetcorn... More

Unfortunately the food and service seem to have gone down hill a little. We have gave it a few last chances but always feel disappointed when we leave.

To top it off our bill arrived and we left our money which was taken by a male staff member. The male staff member then... More

Decided to try Fat Buddha for my birthday meal before going to the Gala Theatre for a show. The restaurant looked a lot different to any we'd been to before. You got the feel of a night club more than a restaurant. Drinks were served fast and our food arrived quickly too, served by the younger, more courteous members of... More

Heard quite a bit about Fat Buddha so decided to give it ago. Booked online fairly easily. Called in early and found that our table was right out of the way in a corner. Changed it to be more in the hub of the restaurant. Our table was ready when we arrived. From that moment onwards our mood deteriorated due... More

Visited here for the first time for my brother's birthday. The staff were lovely and they served us well to fit our preferences. Great atmosphere as well and plenty of room at the table considering we had a toddler with us who cant stay in one place for 30 seconds! I would visit Fat Buddha again in Durham or the... More

A lovely meal served by a lovely young lady who even spotted I'd left my shopping under the table when I left. Quick friendly and efficient service she is a credit to your restaurant.
