Called in for some cocktails. I got the pornstar martini, shanghai kiss, the chocolate martini thing and my partner got an old fashioned. All well made and the €6 offer was great value :)!

I can only assume from other reviews that we ordered the wrong food but how can you have a Singapore Noodles showing 3 chilli hot stars and no spice?. This must be a fusion restaurant owned by Chinese, there can not be a Thai or...More

The tea house and Buddha Bar is amazing value for money with top quality food and cocktails. The duck with pancakes was especially delicious, large portions cooked to perfection. Buddha Bar is a great place to stop by on any trip to Galway City!

Buddha Bar Galway is an authentic experience with great Asian food at a reasonable price as well as a great selection of cocktails and beers at the bar. We open at 5pm and by 10pm we are rocking with great music and a deal which offers you €6 cocktails for the month of January. Great place to visit for the night.
