Having been to Cambodia a few times over the last couple of years jumped at the chance to try some Amok on a recent trip to Canberra. Food didn't disappoint, fast and delish, chefs visit to the table was a great touch. Will be back

The Hungry Buddha, Nepalese Cuisine has been around since 2011. The Belconnen premises is our second such restaurant. We pride in our passion for food and service. Over the years, the hungry buddha has established itself in the food scene in the south and will be doing its best to keep patrons engaged in the Canberra's north. Namaste
