With a newborn, I'm short on time and energy; however when the food is this bad , you find both to review it. First of all, the fact there is a strict $30 minimum for delivery is annoying and the delivery fee and tax aren't included in this. The delivery guy was very nice and I felt bad for him... More

Buddha Bistro has always been my go-to Thai in JAX Beach. The service is fantastic and the food consistently great. All food is prepared to order and heat adjustable in a 1-5 scale.

Terrible Valentine's Day policy of only serving the worst dishes for $60. Ridiculous policy and negatively impacted our Valentine's Day plans.

We arrived before 6:00 and apparently they have a happy hour that runs until 7:00 which was a nice surprise. Several tasty apps and sake, beer, wine and cocktails at a reduce price. The appetizers (spring rolls and golden nest shrimp) and drinks were "spot on". For dinner we ordered drunk man noodles w/shrimp, pad Thai noodles and yellow curry... More

We had a delicious and reasonably priced lunch. The food was much better than other Thai restaurants we tried in the area.

We both like Thai food. Ever since we discovered Buddha, we have been coming here at least once a week. First of all, they have excellent fried egg rolls - and trust me, we have had egg rolls at many places, including China and Taiwan. Their main dishes are always good and consistent in flavor. We get what we expect... More

The food is delicious. they accommodate for gluten and shellfish allergies and its great! Just one note to management: Please please please get new carpeting. I know you try to keep the tables clean and other things, but, the soiled carpet just detracts from the delicious food. Also, some of the chairs are soiled. Please resolve these issues. Thank you.

This restaurant has a good lunch menu. Choose your dish and then choose the meat or seafood you want included. My husband had the Drunk Noodles with pork. I had the Garlic Pepper with pork. Yummy. The Thai Iced Tea is like a wonderful dessert. If you are in Jacksonville Beach at lunch time, don't miss Buddha Thai Bistro.

Ate here yesterday; restaurant not very crowded; service very slow; no one tending bar and one server said he did not know how to pour a beer. Food was just average. People came in and were not served so they left. Not sure what has happened here but it will be a long time before I return!
