Gluten friendly/accommodating. Food was delicious! Came early in the day so it wasn’t busy at all! Would be a fun place to sit in patio or come in evening for drinks/apps

We try to eat at Laughing Buddha whenever we’re in Sudbury. Great food with lots of options for people with dietary restrictions. We love their chick pea salad. Service was slightly slow but it was busy due to a Wolves game.

I want to love this restaurant - great atmosphere (at least in the bar area - the back dining room seemed bleak), and the menu was varied and interesting! I was drawn to the fire pit on the outside patio, but it was just too...cold for me to attempt that. The food was great! I ordered the antipasto platter = excellent! And a pizza - also very good. Now... the service. As good as the food was, that's how bad the service was. During my visit (approx one hour - 90 min), I had three different servers. None were exemplary. And I waited close to 45 min for the pizza which arrived only after I managed to catch the eye of a staff member, who then checked the kitchen and returned with my lukewarm food. When I requested the bill, and a takeout - the person returned and dropped a cardboard container on the table and left. I was finally able to settle my tab, packaged my food, and leave. Recommended for the food - but maybe order ahead and take it home. You'll be happier.More

This restaurant located near the downtown Core was recommended to us. It didn’t disappoint. It’s a trendy restaurant catering more towards the vegetarian clientele, but being a carnivore I was pleasantly surprised. It has a very eclectic menu with many interesting choices. Well spaced indoor...tables and a great patio make this a Covid friendly place. Definitely recommended.More

My family visited in early September on a weeknight for dinner. We waited approximately 20 mins to be seated at a table. We placed our order and ended up waiting more than an hour for our meals. We have two small kids (5 & 8...yrs old) who were very hungry and agitated. I asked our server twice to see what the problem was but we continued to wait. Finally, we had enough and I asked to pay for our app & drinks that had come out. There was no offer to comp us for these items. I barely got an apology from our server.More

We are on a 2 week road trip and this was first evening on road. Due to Covid we wanted to eat in a Patio. Thanks to Trip advisor they show those restaurants separately.They do not take reservations , I called said they were not...busy but good to come sooner than later, which we did. The hostess told us where to park free, from the outside it looks like the patio is on the sidewalk but actually there are many tables along the side and in back, very nice. Found out they were dog friendly. Service was excellent and we had the Buddha Bowls, lots of food and tasty. Would highly recommend. before Covid we did a lot of travelling and I would rank this near the top of many restaurantsMore

Ordered the Chicken Buddha Bowl. It was DRY, barely any sauce, not much flavour and they out so much avocado in it, that once you mix it all up, it was like a large clump of mush. Not good. Not returning. Don’t recommend.
