Had lunch here. Chicken Cordon Bleu. The chicken was nice, fairly tender. But the sautéed potatoes that came with it were a bit undercooked. Even worse, the 'salad' that came with it was simply shredded white cabbage, with no dressing of any kind on it!!...More

We went for a drink on a Friday night around 10:30pm and it was completely empty. We were very disappointed as we heard so much about Funky Buddha from our friends. The place is nice to sit and relax.

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay; once for dinner and another time for lunch. The wifi signal was strong and they had nice music playing. Our meals were delicious. If you're into a restaurant that radiates cool vibes then come here.
