Enjoyed a lovely meal with a group of 9 pax. 5 ordered the sharing menu and that was brilliant. Staff were very attentive. Good portion sizes.

We really enjoyed the flavors of our dishes. They were fresh, medium spicy like I prefer, and not too large a portion. We would recommend this restaurant.

Buddha Stix on Riccarton Road, is a place to feel special - enjoy the finest Asian cuisine in eye-catching style. Buddhas Stix is the perfect stop over for a cocktail and a snack before a show, or stay for a nights worth of great food and company. You'll find a warm welcome and dishes from all over the Asian continent - plenty from Thailand, but splashes of flavour from Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia and China.
