I love Thai food and when I moved to West Seattle, everyone kept telling me to try Buddha Ruksa. Most of the time, the line to get in was so long that I would pass it up. I usually don't like to do take-out without...More

I am recuperating from surgery so our kids went and got it carried out. We had curry sauce with brown rice, Garlic chicken, pad Thai noodles and a host of assorted appetizers. What a fabulous meal. We can't wait to go again soon

Mixed feeling about this place. We come here often hoping for the times that we experienced good food but not always. The wait is so long even with reservations. Not the best attitude when it comes to service. Food is good most of the time....More

We both enjoyed everything we ate. Nothing overdone, over-sauced or over-priced, including the wine list. Everything lovely. Folks who served and waited were welcoming and quick. Don't rely on some 'sad' old-timer's odd grumpiness. Enjoy lovely local Thai instead.
