Had a reasonable experience for dinner here with the family. The service was attentive. Nice set up inside. Lots of items to choose from on the menu. The entrees came out within a reasonable time. However the mains didn't. The first item arrived over 5mins...More

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.
