If Laughing Buddha doesn't have you in stitches, it'll definitely put a smile on your face. Specialising in authentic Chinese food, this eatery always delivers on flavour and beautiful presentation.

Endlessly erupting in giggles, chatter and good times, Laughing Buddha has an infectious atmosphere that has an irresistible charm. Nestle down under a glowing paper lantern amidst the stunning traditional decor. That's right; it's not just the food that's authentically Chinese!

Ain't no better accompaniment to some much-needed giggle-time than some sharing plates. Mix and match textures, meats and flavours with some crispy pork, garlic pork ribs and salt and pepper prawn for starters.

And the sharing doesn't stop there. Order in an array of mains to have with your rice or noodles. There's everything from sweet and sour pork to Mongolian beef wok, kung pao chicken and a seasonal vegetable medley. Round it off with some of their homemade tofu before you flop onto a mango pillow; that's the name of an actual dessert and boy does it sound intriguing and delicious!
