I live two blocks away, so believe me, I had high hopes for this place. I've given them at least 3 tries. Perhaps my sample size isn't large enough. But whenever I get that Thai food craving, I will go out of my way to avoid this place because I'm in search of more fresh, flavorful food than they have been able to serve up. I usually order vegetarian food, and have been disappointed to find that their vegetables seemed limited to cabbage, onion, celery, and the occasional carrot. Not very satisfying to me.

Pumpkin Curry Prawns!

The pumpkin curry with prawns is so good it makes you wonder why no other That joint offer that dish. Buddha Ruksa does Thai so much better than everywhere else, though, so who cares. Great for dine-in (great atmosphere) or take-out!

Simply great food

A more upscale atmosphere than your typical Thai restaurant, the dining room is dark paneled and cozy. I have yet to have a bad dish, but have dreams about the fresh rolls and the peanut dipping sauce, Tom Ka with chicken and don't even get me started on the Crispy Garlic Chicken. Three of us recently went and with a bottle of wine it was only $60!

West Seattle: Thai food paradise

Between this place and Pailin, I don't ever have to leave West Seattle for tasty Thai food. This is the more upscale of the two, probably better for a fancy date. Cozy and warm dark wood decor, a menu that goes beyond the expected Thai staples. Classy and delicious.

Heavenly: Crispy Garlic Chicken

Sometimes, I just gotta have it: I feel like a junkie, needing my crispy garlic chicken" fix! It's out of this world, not to mention all the other dishes. My daughter is vegetarian and swoons over the pumpkin curry. Service is very pleasant and efficient
