In the centre of Leiden, near a canal. For 27,50 you can get a three-course meal (other days 24,50). The service is fast and the meals are very tasty. The second Floor is very noisy when there are a lot of guests . Downstairs is better.

We were a party of two. The waitress proposed to us a special price menu (24.5 euro per person for 3 plates). Each one of us chose 1 soup, 1 salad and one main course. They charged us 1 menu per person and 1 extra starter (because as they said soup and salad are both starters). Before ordering we have... More

One of the best restaurants in town. The food is really tasty and presented in a really pleasant way (flowers as decoration). The service is fast and friendly. A lot of choices and also vegetarian friendly. Portion sizes are good and waiting time quit low. I would really recommend this restaurant :)!

Revisited Buddha this month, as usual we were not disappointed. The food was tasty, plentiful and authentic. The service was excellent by all staff and the atmosphere 'gezellig' and warm. We sat upstairs as we prefer the space and less noise. We will certainly come back!

Time to refresh, do a make-over and refine the food. A bit too crowded for my taste, the tables stand very close to each other so you end up looking into other guests plates and hearing other people's conversations. Food is OK but not excellent. In fact, Thai kitchen can be so much better, the food here does not live... More

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.
