Dining options: After-hours, Reservations
Description: The cuisine at Little Buddha is an eclectic mix of dishes of pacific-ream inspiration. Food lovers can expect the unexpected when the Little Buddha chefs mix Asian fusion as Far East Asia with an emphasis on Japan, China and Thailand seasoned with a ?soup��on? of French Flair twist resulting in a delectable and innovative menu.

“Disappointed ”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Came here with 50 of my colleagues to celebrate the end of our conference. We arrived at 5pm for pre-dinner drinks and tables were booked for 6pm. At 7:30pm we finally sat down!
The restaurant was not busy on this night, if fact we seemed to be the only party in there.
The food was nice but we found portion size was poor.
Only highlight for me but others may hate is that there is a smoking room in the restaurant, great when the weather is rubbish. Not sure if this is legal but good for smokers!

“Poor service!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

We have been to this restaurant before and had been sort of happy with the service but our last visit completely changed our view about the place and we crossed it off our list!

We had to wait for 30 minutes to order our food...
After 20 minutes we were told that the main course some of us had ordered was over, so they had to pick something else. So after another 30 minutes we got our first meal!!! it was unbelievable...
We had our third and the last course after 3 hours!!! basically it was the time to go to bed...so ppor management, so poor service quality and definetely not worth the price.. You can find so many other (good!) options in Amsterdam-skip this for sure!

“Not great for vegetarians”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Very limited vegetarian options. Had to ask them to make something for us and what they produced was mainly fried foods! Surprising when there could be so much they could have done in terms of Chinese or Thai cuisine.

Service is very slow.

The venue definitely has that wow factor in terms of ambience and the resident DJ makes the mood come through and you can party on till late.
