Went to there for a meal recently with 6 people. It was a great meal and great service. Had dessert too which was good but brownie should not be served on a hotplate!

Our 4th or 5th visit to this friendly restaurant with great atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed their meals but my slow-cooked pork was bland by comparison. I would not recommend this meal at all.

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.
