I visited Baby Buddha after it being recommended by a friend. I'll start by saying the waiting staff were pleasant and the food I ordered was good, particularly the dim sum. However, despite being 2 out of 6 people in the entire restaurant, we waited 40mins to be served and again between courses, which seemed excessive. Although I cannot complain... More

Another disappointing visit to Baby Buddha! The food is ok and is one of very few dim sum restaurants in Norwich but service is always poor, staff are slow & poorly trained and the owner is either rude or disdainful (of both customers and sometimes staff)! We've been several times and have had ok evenings to downright appalling customer service,... More

So it is with heavy heart that I write this review. Our group of friends have been big fans of this restaurant for the last few years and as such we arrange a special visit every couple of months for around 6-8 of us. We visited yesterday and as usual had a great selection of Dim Sum and main courses... More

I've been to this place a few times now and it has always been good. The serving staff are always polite and attentive and the menu has a good selection to choose from. We always go for the Dim Sim (lots of smaller dishes) rather than the main menu as this is what we enjoy more. I spent 11 years... More

Can't fault this food at all. The restaurant was 90% full of Chinese people. Great atmosphere. Quick wonderful food. Intestesing food menu with plenty of choice for all. We left feeling like big Buddha's.

We go regularly to Baby Buddha and consider it to be one of the best of its genre, certainly can't fault the food or the friendly service. We had a great night out. This is our third visit so far in 2017 and I can't help but notice that it is much quieter these days and perhaps it is because... More

I have been going to Baby Buddha since it opened and most enjoy a selection of dim sum with some beef ho fun. I really enjoy this place especially when it is really busy as it really noisy and because of this your own table feels private.

I have been here several times over the years and absolutely love the place! The food is truly authentic and I recommend getting several dishes to share to try a bit of everything. The beef ho fun is excellent as a main and the dim sum especially are a personal favourite for a starter. You can tell that everything is... More
