Buddha Ruksa closed for remodeling

After a worried Thai-food fan e-mailed to ask why they’re closed and not answering the phone, we found the building permit for their remodeling work, then went by and saw a note on the door says they’ll reopen for dinner 1/15 and for lunch 1/22. (2 other concerned would-be customers came by just during the few minutes we were checking!)

    I’ve had a craving for crispy garlic chicken lately. Yikes!

    On my commute home I was about two sentences from convincing my wife that I should pick up Thai on the way home. And yes, we would have ordered the crispy garlic chicken.

    whew…I thought us ‘crack garlic chicken’ junkies were gonna be doomed.

    Crispy Garlic Chicken is to West Seattle what Red Mill Burgers is to Phinney Ridge. Both restaurants are guilty of adding an addictive ingredient to their specialties.

    Imagine picking up Lee’s 7 flavor beef AND Buddha Ruksa’s garlic chicken, then heading to beverage place for a accompanying bevvies. Would your head explode? Would you pass out in ecstasy? Would secrets of the universe be revealed?

    Second only to the C.G.Chicken is their Pumpkin Prawn Curry. THANK YOU for sharing this update on their status.

    thanks for being so on top of things… I was really getting worried when there was not answer, and the voicemail is not set up… perhaps someone should explain to them that they should have a voicemail notice indicating why they are closed… Just a thought.

    I hope they are somehow accomodating more tables. My husband and I went last Friday and it was so jammed we had to leave.

    Thank god, if they had closed I would’ve cried. Good to know!

    That’s really good news! I was complaining to a friend today that the restaurant just disappeared. He forwarded this part of the bolg to me. When we went by this week I saw no notice/sign of any sort. I called several times–no answer. They seemed to just vanish. Thank goodness Buddha Ruska lives.
    Yes– Crispy Chicken!!!
