This is the only Chinese Restaurant in the centre of Douglas and is an ideal place for a lunch when out shopping or for a working lunch as well as evening meals. The ambience is excellent and the standard of Chinese cuisine superb. The polite and friendly staff ensure that you are made to feel welcome and well looked after. The Laughing Buddha Restaurant is not only a great place for personal lunches or dinners, but also is the ideal venue for private functions, corporate functions, business lunches, and even take-away meals for busy executives.

We are advised that The Laughing Buddha Restaurant is the longest established Chinese restaurant on the Isle of Man having been here for over 17 years. They have many regular customers who return time and time again.

Some Isle of Man residents will remember the "Mayflower" Chinese restaurant which used to be in Strand Street. The food had an excellent local reputation due to the influence of the head chef who now supervises the kitchens at The Laughing Buddha Restaurant. He will be pleased to tempt your taste buds again.

Fabulous, Exceptional, Outstanding are just a few words which sum up the Laughing Buddha, whether for a lunch or evening meal. My wife and I have tried many Chinese restaurants around the world, but none have come anywhere near to the standard of food served here. If there were six stars available for friendliness and top class cuisine then this restaurant would get it. At he back of Marks and Spencer up the steps and on the left......Bon Apetit

Myself and work colleague went in search of a nice meal in Douglas and stumbled accross this little gem. The service was fantastic, the food delicious and the whole experience was a delight. It's quite rare to find a place where the staff take such pride in their establishment, a true feeling of love surrounded this place, hope it endures for a very long time... Believe me when I say I'll be visiting the Laughing Buddha again :)
