Its a 45 minute drive for us, but its worth the drive to Port Colbourne. The four of us sampled many menu items and all were fantastic. Reasonably price wine, great service and food is among the best eastern food we have had. Wishing it was closer but will making the drive often, well done to the "Smokin Buhda".

This last week I went to The Smokin' Buddha for the first time and I am sorry that I waited this long to try it! We shared three dishes and each one was delicious! (pad thai, butter chicken and yellow curry) Service was good and helpful and loved the environment. Definitely will be back to try more even though it's... More

I love the Smokin Buddha! I will often take-out and it's always incredible, but will go and eat-in for their beer menu with a unique selection of drinks from the region. A great place to bring out-of-town guests.

We have been here many times before. This last time it was only so so. Either they got a different chef or he was having an off night. The quesadilla we ordered was bland and tasteless. Would have been better had it been served with some kind of salsa. The spinach dip too was only ok. I've had much better.... More
