Ok such a contrast The place is a case study for interior design magazines most tasteful with levels and patios gardens open and closed roof places and rooms You are outside but at the same time inside The food is very good especially if you...like thai But the music is a.... JOKE! I mean if you don’t get angry you will have a laugh or better try to guess what style will be the next song What ever goes in a non sensical changing of songs which are totally irrelevant in style and taste I think the dj is making a social experiment..... Close your ears enjoy the food and the ambiance and be intrigued by the peculiar dj tasteMore

I had the displeasure of visiting this establishment with my partner and another couple. We arrived after our friends, and we were never given water glasses. Some of the dishes were not terrible, however, the service made up for that. One of us ordered a...Margarita, and given the salt on the rim of the glass she also asked for a straw. Our server was astounded by our friends absurd request and responded “A straw for a margarita?!” in an almost condescending tone. When we asked for him to cut the straw, to fit the margarita bottle, he was again astounded by our request, and provided us with a small chunk, which needed to be balanced within the glass to prevent it from swimming in the drink. When asked about the quality of the food, my partner complained about her Vietnamese Rolls, as the were tasteless and rubbery, much to the dismay of the waiter. He responded “Have you had these somewhere else? Because I haven’t, and I assumed this is how they ought to taste.”More

Nice decoration, nice cocktails!! The food is ok. We had a red curry with chicken which was very tasty, yet more creamy than I would like. The mango salad less spicy than expected and the bao ban nothing special.

Although we have frequently eaten at this restaurant and enjoyed the food the Xmas Eve dinner was absolutely terrible. I was dining with my daughter & grandson on this family festive occasion their soup was not edible due to the fact it had been drowned...in coconut milk so it was too sickly to eat. My starter arrived 30 mins later due to my allergy to crustaceans in the soup (this had been explained and agreed to one week prior to that) I was given dumplings instead which I had to send back. They were not only cold but they were glued to the basket and could not be removed. Instead of 3 different starters I was given 4 tiny pork balls which were served well before my daughter & grandsons starters which I ended up once more eating alone. The duck in the main course was delicious but that was the only edible part of the Xmas Eve menu as the dessert and the salad served earlier was also too sweet and sickly to eat. Chefs night off who knows. The bill was 265 Euros (€70 per head for Xmas Eve menu - drinks not included) Totally unprofessional since although we virtually sent everything back and complained we were not even offered any means of compensation. Unfortunately will not be going back to Buba’s again after this very disappointing experience.More

The place is perfect for people craving for authentic Asian food. We truly enjoyed all the food that we ordered - Veggie Vietnamese Roll, Tom Yum Soup, Papaya Salad, Burmese Chicken Curry and Phad Thai. The ambiance of the place is likewise commendable.

Visited Buba last week, the atmosphere and decoration is really nice, but when it comes to taste it is below expectations, we had some noodles that were tasteless, while the duck was not fresh for sure. In terms of customer service, nothing special, they did...not even asked us if we liked the food or why we did not finish our place. On top of that we paid 85 euros for 2 people, that was for 2 starters, 2 main dishes and 2 cocktails. All in all will not visit them again, as they are overpriced for low quality of food.More
