Wee Buddha only does a few things, but they do those things as well as anybody else in Edinburgh. As a bar it’s about as cool and quirky as you get, rough wooden furniture and stone walls that give it a warming, rustic vibe, then contemporary cocktails (there’s always a new creation on the menu) served as swishly as you’d expect from a fancy hotel bar. But the food is what really sets it apart from both bars and Asian restaurants in Edinburgh’s New Town. Offering Asian-style tapas and bar snacks perfectly balancing (in serving size and saltiness) the drinks, as well as several choices for dinner proper, Wee Buddha fully embraces the term ‘fusion’ as a philosophy rather than just a marketing buzzword – need we say more than lentil-based vegetarian haggis wontons? It doesn’t get much foot traffic on Jamaica Street, but Wee Buddha is definitely worth a wee stroll from Princes and George streets, even a special trip.
Yet again Wee Buddha delivered. Great food, excellent service in a very friendly and relaxing environment. We have been to Wee Buddha many times and will definitely go many more times!
The food was delicious and the servings very generous. Loved the feel of the place and the staff were very attentive. Will definitely be returning.
