We last reviewed this little restaurant back in 2014. We have visited it a number of times since. Thought it would be appropriate to "update" my earlier remarks. The STILL provide a great menu and good service. It is a very small restaurant in a strip mall off the AZ 303 loop. The food is delicious. They have a large... More

Good food at good prices! We usually get takeout on the weekends because there is usually a wait to get a table.

One of my pet peeves is reading positive reviews and they literally take my thunder away. Great food, smaller venue, outstanding service, people that care what they serve. We have been going here for four years and there is no reason to change now.

Hard to believe but this may be the best Chinese food I've ever eaten and I'm a connoisseur of Chinese food. The place is in a strip mall, unpretentious, not what you'd expect to have great food. One in our party doesn't like Chinese food and he went away a new convert. I want to go back to Surprise just... More

Stopped in to order take out but since there weren't many customers, we decided to eat there. The staff was friendly and we got out orders in quickly. Few minutes later, the rush began! The place filled up quickly and the service slowed somewhat. The food was great, the best house lo mien we've had in a long time! In... More

The food was very good however the prices were just a little pricey for chinese food. The food selection was very good and extremely tasty. We normally go with other friends and after we introduced them to Big Buddha they have gone back time and time again. I lived in China for over 2 years and this food is just... More

The Big Buddha Chinese Restaurant is THE place to go for great authentic Chinese food. Always FRESH, always fast, always friendly and at a good price as well. Something I missed after several trips to Hong Kong was Chop Suey. The Chop Suey at Big Buddha hit the top of my list. A real variety of dishes all prepared right... More

Stopped by on a Monday evening for dinner. They had one of my favorites Wor Won Ton Soup. We also go the pork fried rice and some crab Rangoon. The soup was a huge bowl full of shrimp, pork, chicken, vegetables, etc. Very good. The other dishes were very tasty as well. Fast service and fair pricing.

We've lived in the Phoenix area for 11 years and have been looking for a Mom and Pop type Chinese restaurant that serves food, and most importantly pork fried rice that we love and tastes like the rice we "used to get back east." Our spur of the moment decision to give Big Buddha a try resulted in ticking off... More
