Very Good . Spoilt for choices of food from a huge menu so difficult to choose . So will have to go again.

You won’t be disappointed!

Good was great. Service was enthusiastic but untrained and unco-ordinated. We were asked three times by different staff if we wanted papadams and our wine glasses cleared!

Food excellent as always but overbearing service, every member of staff took turns to ask if all was ok every couple of minutes. It became a little tiring eventually, the only time it stopped was when it was time to pay and despite requests no-one seemed to want to take payment!! Bit of balance would have made the experience better
We will be back though!!

Or experience at The Fat Buddha was very enjoyable. The food was well cooked and nicely presented, the service attentive without being overbearing. The tandoori broccoli and scallop starters were excellent. The naan was light and fluffy, the lamb shank tender and succulent and the tarka dhaal one of the best we've had. Pistachio chicken was also very nice. The only thing that was disappointing was the rice which was dry and a bit clumpy. We'll definitely be returning to enjoy more of the dishes on offer and would happily recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

A quite Tuesday night. Food was nice but not exceptional. Services was good and the staff helpful. I found it expensive for what we had and not very good value for money.

First time here and we were really impressed. The staff were extremely friendly and recommended lots of new dishes for us to try, all of which were delicious. Considering it was a Tuesday night the restaurant was busy and there was a lovely ambience. The quality of the food was brilliant - so fresh and full of flavour. It was different to any other Indian we'd had before. Will definitely be back!

We’ve only had a takeaway up until now so it was wonderful to get the full experience of great cocktails and the excellent tasty food sitting inside!

Chicken dansak is always a favourite of mine and the Fat Buddha never disappoints!

Looking forward to a return visit!

Quite simply the best restaurant in town! Week in week out the atmosphere and food are outstanding. We’re always greeted with a warm smile and invited in for a pre-dinner drink in the stylish bar area. One of the best things about the FB is that we’re never rushed to order, in fact the staff will often suggest new dishes although take it from me the chat and chicken moglai are out of this world! If there was an option for 6 stars I’d be tapping it!

We had a lovely first experience at the Fat Buddha (Maidenhead) we were welcomed and showed to our table promptly and soon attended for appetisers and drinks. The food was amazing, probably the best I’ve tasted in a very long time! The dinks although although a little pricey (we ordered wine and cocktails) were very tasty and measures were generous. Staff were very welcoming and attentive throughout.
We will be back!
