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.

As soon as you walk in you are greeted with a smile, a menu, and options to sit wherever you like in this tranquil space. It feels like a getaway in Bali! The best part was, we could bring our dog! We sat in the...Bali style day bed, had crispy wedges with aioli and sweet chilli, a burger, an Autumn latte, and the tofu scramble, freshly squeezed juices, pancakes, and avo on toast... YUM. My daughter couldnt stop taking pictures of the food and venue. High vibe food, Wicked service. Cant wait to visit again.More

The best cafe and events space on the Central Coast! I hired the space for a dance event, and invited everyone to stay and have lunch. We danced in the well lit, sound proof and absolutely stunning studio space surrounded by trees... and then we...were SO hungry! Their were a couple of specials on that we all liked including, the mushroom and asparagus linguine, and the seasonal curry. My vegan friend said "These are the best vegan pancakes ive had in my life!" We sat around drinking coffee and shared cakes afterwards. (They had all the alternative milks and such yummy vegan cakes!!) 100% recommend. Thank You Bamboo Buddha Team!!More

The staff were all very friendly and attentive in making sure that we had everything that we ordered and that our waiting time was minimal. The spicy tofu scramble, sunshine smoothie, share the love nacho dish and roasted veggie stack were all thoroughly enjoyable!

It's very hard to find vegan food on this side of the coast so was very happy to find Bamboo Buddah. I love everything I have tried so far, especially the walnut burgers. Gorgeous gardens and love the Koi!

As soon as you walk in through Large Balinese doors and Archway and through to the courtyard , a weight lifts off your shoulders and you begin to relax as you take in the surroundings . You have a basic but delicious Menu , which...satisfies the palate , there is plenty to do from meditation classes to Physic Readings , or just enjoy a cuppa and sit back and enjoy the ambiance .More

There is no doubt that Bamboo Buddha is in a beautiful location, surrounded by beautiful Japanese-inspired gardens. We'd heard the restaurant was for sale, and as we'd never been, decided we'd better get in quick. We booked for an early lunch, and (as it's also...dog friendly) took our pup with us. We ordered an entree and a main, but for some reason these were all brought out together. The Thai soup was good, but the mushroom pie was less than impressive - a square of puff pastry topped with a watery mushroom stew, accompanied by cold pea mash and some very tired lettuce. Coffees were good, and (apart from the minor mix-up with our order) so was the service, and the waitress offered a water bowl for our dog. We'll probably be back again to give Bamboo Buddha a go, but might make it for breakfast next time.More
