days and evenings

Hi, welcome to the Buddha’s Smile from Nang and Martin.

We have been providing fresh and authentic Thai food in South East Cornwall since 2006.


In addition to establishing a successful Thai Restaurant in Looe, South East Cornwall, we have catered for a wide range of events

“We have been waiting so long for food as fresh and delicious as this in Liskeard, simply the best” Satisfied Buddha’s Smile customer

and special occasions both for private individuals and the corporate world. These have included weddings, parties, dinner parties, business meetings including AGM’s, training sessions, staff parties and other celebrations.  


We sold our restaurant in March 2014 after 5 successful years. We are passionate about Thailand, its food and culture.


In late Summer 2014, we established a Thai Takeaway Service in Liskeard. Whilst this has become established, we have seen a decline in trade over the last two years. The economy, the opening of Weatherspoon’s in Liskeard and this year’s long hot summer have all contributed to this. In addition, Cornwall Council our landlord has insisted we close our operation at our current location. We will be relocating to The Chequered Flag on the A38 near to the Liskeard Morrisons turn off. We will reopen here for weekend service only from 22nd March 2019. We will be closed for our annual break until this time. Until April, we can only accept cash.


We will also continue to provide a Thai Dining Night at the London Inn in St Neot and are currently looking for another pub to do a similar service. We will also continue to attend a number of events. Please see our Information and Events page for details.


We hope you will continue to support us in these trying times.


Quality is important to us and we use only the freshest ingredients including the choicest cuts of meat. We use no Monosodium Glutamate, colourings or artificial flavourings in our cooking. This together with authentic Thai herbs and spices results in our delicious food, prepared and cooked by Nang. Most of our dishes are Gluten free making our food suitable for people who are celiac, or intolerant to wheat.
