Inside Buddha's Belly

Buddha's Belly in Windsor


If you're into trying something different, turn up at Buddha's Belly on Chapel Street and check out the aerosol art, the novel food, the great service and the ambience of this funky little restaurant bar café at the hip end of Windsor (near Union St).

The décor is what you notice first. Most of the walls are covered with surreal art, done entirely with aerosol by the professional "Set It Off Designs" company. The theme revolves around Buddha and the highway to heaven. It's unbelievable that no brush has touched any of the artwork and for the best viewing, you must visit the bathroom.

Outdoor Seating


With an open floor plan, you may choose one of the funky chairs inside amongst the artwork or there is plenty of seating at the tables outside on the sidewalk where you can people watch along Chapel Street. The service is friendly and fast and while the weekends offer live music the atmosphere remains calm. The menu caters for meat lovers and vegetarians as well as vegans.

Buddha's Menu


Having satisfied your artistic curiosity, try some of the unusual and very tasty menu items and don't bypass the coffee because it's really good. Whether it's breakfast, brunch or dinner, the prices are low and the quality is good. While I'm a meat lover, the vegetarian roti appears to be the favourite of many patrons. Choose from seven different parmas and on Thursdays after 5pm, parma and a beer only costs $16 (Happy Hour is 4pm-7pm every day). Buddha's Belly offers take-away as well as a catering service for functions and is a licensed venue
