Seattle Weekly's Description
The instant you walk into Buddha Ruksa, the servers greet you warmly, as if they've been preparing a meal in anticipation of your arrival. The air is rich with the aroma of spices, the dining room adorned with warm colors, candles, and statues of deities. Buddha Ruksa serves classic Thai cuisine, as do countless other restaurants in the city. But it's their signature dishes that bring customers back again and again. Their red curry contains succulent prawns and hearty pieces of pumpkin that come up with almost every dip of the spoon. The crispy garlic chicken, dubbed "crack chicken" by regulars, is sautéed in a savory sauce and served atop a bed of crispy, seasoned basil. Dishes such as these are intended for sharing, but you won't want to. Be prepared to battle your company for every last morsel.
