We generally do not dine in at Big Buddha. We get carry out. That is because we enjoy the food at home watching a good movie with a glass of wine or a beer. I will say that we are pleased with the menu, the quality , and selection. We have tried a variety of soups, appetizers, and entrees and... More

So enjoyed having dinner at Big Buddha! Food was delicious and generously portioned. Pricing was fair. Not your typical Chinese restaurant. Food was lightly battered and good. Will definitely go back!

We found this spot for dinner this evening. Busy evening but we were seated quickly and our order taken promptly. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Ordered the war wonton soup followed by Hunan Beef and a shrimp and walnut dish. Soup was hot, flavourful and a generous bowl for sharing. The main dishes also hot, generous portion and well balanced.... More

We used go here a couple times a month and the food is always consistently good and fresh. The staff is very welcoming and treats us like family. They use REAL mushrooms in their dishes not canned which I love! We no longer live in the area but when we visit Surprise we love coming back to eat here

This was our first visit since we are new to the area. Hard to find a good restaurant here since every thing seems to be fast food joints. This was rated one of the top ten in the Surprise area. We enjoyed everything we had. Not a large place but there is out door seating .

Have yet been able to find a good Chinese restaurant in Surprise area and was very pleased with our meal at Big Buddha. We ordered twice cooked pork and it was delicious. The service was good and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Will definitely go back.

This was an early lunch stop before hitting the road back home. We were visiting family and they had suggested this little place. We got there a little early, but they unlocked their door and welcomed us in. They have lunch specials which are smaller portions and the regular menu items are bigger. We ordered the orange chicken, combo sweet... More

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
