About Us

It was back in 2008 that the proprietors opened Asian Tea House in Galway bringing in food menus focusing more on the authenticity and staying true to traditions. We believed that respecting traditions expand our lives and generations. The concept was to create a place of pastime and gathering with unique interiors for guests to admire the arts while enjoying the meals and appreciate the aesthetic taste of life.

Then in year 2012, Buddha Bar Galway was created with a trendier concept. Step into Buddha Bar Galway and expect to be wowed by the stunning and exquisite interiors in a buzzing environment. It is one of the hippest venues in Galway with remarkable cocktails which make an unforgettable experience for you. Here, you could enjoy meals with an extensive menu of mesmerizing cocktails or even chat with our mixology mavens over the bar counter. We pride ourselves on constantly adapting and developing our unique and experimental cocktails selection along with a great selection of beers and spirits.

At Asian Tea House Restaurant and Buddha Bar Galway, we focus on fresh and healthy foods. Indulge in delicious flavours of Asia from innovative menus in both premises inspired by the cuisines of China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam; to name a few. Our aim is to offer an authentic menus with a zest of the west. The carefully balanced dishes will delight your taste buds. As the first Asian property in Ireland to promote non-use of artificial flavorings or food preservatives, we strive for continuous improvements to create a healthy and delectable dishes.
