Hi, My wife and me were here during the Diwali weekend of 2016. We were referred Laughing Buddha by a friend who was there a few months prior. Must say, the accomodation (huts ) were well maintained and very affordable considering accomodation in Goa. We found the location very safe and far from the commercial buzz of Goa. The food,...

The food is fresh and juices are good. With good quantity. Beach side rooms are economical and fun. Only issue us the distance from...

I took a vegetable Thali which was OK priced and tasted nice. Also the portion was rather big. However the experience with the staff was horrible. When asking another staff member for the WiFi code, after ordering food with his colleague he told me in a very rude way I should order food first before getting wifi, which I just...

I stayed with one of my friends for a couple of days. We stayed in a hut which was priced at Rs.600 bucks. We did not expect much out of the hut but it had all the basic amenities. It also had a mosquito net. The food was good and was fairly priced. I especially liked their morning masala tea...

I was attracted to this place because of the name. But, our food took way too long and was sub-par. Also, compared to other cafes on Arambol Beach it was a bit expensive. If the staff was friendly it may have made up for the food but they were also quite aloof. I wouldn't recommend this place

A friend and I stayed and ate there for 4 nights. It was reasonably priced. At night there was always someone checking who entered the shacks. Upon arrival the toliet leaked but was fixed promptly. Well done! The food was decent and moderately priced. The Internet worked well enough(for goa). The password being changed multiple times a day and having...

Thank you for your comments. I only wanted to say perhaps there must have been some misunderstanding, if you are staying in Laughing Buddha you only have to order one hundred rupees for a days internet, you just need to tell the waiter your room number and order any change in the password and you are given automatically. The password...

After coming many days to the restaurant I can say that I saw very little laughter at Laughing Buddha. The design of the restaurant drew us in as it has an appealing lay out with low tables and places to relax but in my experience this is the best part about Laughing Buddha. The food is ok, prices reasonable but...

I am really sorry about your experience if you were in a room near the kitchen normally you are told that there is noise early in the morning these rooms have the advantage of a sea view from the chill out area, mostly people who are doing yoga early in the morning prefer to stay in these rooms. As for...

Nice restaurant for sitting but the slow waiters who never greet or smile. The huts are very small and basic, have only cold shower and hard mattresses. Not worth the 500 they are asking for. Go next door to Triple Nine or other places and you will get much more for the same money!

The food the the Laughing Buddha Restaurant is amazing. The Bringal Rogan Gosh was particularly delicious. We also had a selection of other vegetarian dishes which were also vegan and delicious. The location on the beach is also fabulous. The restaurant is a little way from the more touristy restaurants and has a wonderful atmosphere.
