Featuring live music and incredible happy hour specials, Buddha’s Belly is the perfect place to meet up with friends for great food and fun times.
Great food and great service! Come here often and never have had a bad experience yet, can recommend as a great place for lunch or dinner
Service was friendly and great, however the food is quite average. The atmosphere is pretty laid back but not a good place for a quiet night to talk over dinner as background music is quite.
The interior of Buddha’s Belly is unlike any other restaurant in Melbourne. Featuring psychedelic murals on the walls and warm colours throughout, the dining area is unique in Windsor. And at night, Buddha’s Belly becomes a sultry bar and lounge, so stop by and indulge in signature cocktails likes the Hot Ambers, a martini made with chilli and lychee, or the decadent After Dinner Mint, a chocolate and minty drink that functions both as a strong cocktail and a dessert at the same time.
If you’re with a group, we recommend starting off with one of the fusion restaurant’s sharing platters, including international options such as the garlic prawn skewers, lamb sliders, grilled saganaki or the antipasto board. As for the mains at Windsor’s Buddha’s Belly, you can indulge in tasty burgers – try the cajun chicken or the brisket burger – or classic dishes like bangers and mash, the traditional chicken parma or the 300g porterhouse served with chips and a salad. Finish up your meal with sweets like churros or the tasty sticky date pudding before heading back out onto Melbourne’s Chapel Street. Make sure to book ahead for a trippy dining experience! Fusio
