Everyone loves a good Asian restaurant. Who doesn’t have their go-to Chinese dish that they love? Who doesn’t love to indulge in great sushi or a hibachi grill experience? And even the spicy sweetness of Thai cuisine is taking the nation by storm. But what if you’d like to have a little bit of everything.

A new culinary experience has come to the Outer Banks. An Asian fusion restaurant that brings authentic flavors but with a twist. BuddhaLicious is setting itself up to be a destination restaurant right smack dab in the middle of Corolla.

BuddhaLicious offers lunch and dinner, as well as appetizers and sushi. It has meals you’ll recognize like Orange Chicken, Tikka Masala and Thai Drunken Noodles. But they’ve also poured their culinary creativity into such meals as Loco Moco, a Hawaiian dish that gives you an angus burger with a Japanese rice cake and chow-chow, and Butternut Nut Squash Curry.


Scintillating Sake

Sake is not just rice wine. It is a refreshing fermented drink that is an essential aspect of the Japanese dining experience. BuddhaLicious has compiled the most comprehensive selection of sake anywhere in the Outer Banks. Enjoy different flavors, and develop your palate as you sample a broad array of sakes. There are also inventive Saketinis, a signature drink.

Beautiful Atmosphere

BuddhaLicious recognizes that atmosphere has become almost as important to the dining experience as the food itself. That’s why they’ve created a Zen environment of fun, relaxation and food vibes. You can bring a date, your friends or even your family. The unique “Hot Rock” platter lets your table cook their individual meats and seafood the way you like it.
