"This is authentic Chinese cuisine at its best, in the most unlikely of spots. And as a new student of Hsia’s food, I’m only beginning my adventure. There is so much more to try at Budai." - Erin Brooks, Local Flavor

"It still felt like Budai had given us a taste of Taiwan, along with a good tour of what well-prepared Chinese can be." - Andrea Lin, Albuquerque Journal

"It'll rub your belly the right way." - Ari LeVaux, Alibi

"Budai Gourmet Chinese garners a well-deserved reputation as a fine destination restaurant." - Shari Taylor, Local IQ

"Budai is a very special restaurant, one which should be shared with open-minded friends who love food as much as you do." - Gil Garduno, Gil's Thrilling (and filling) Blog

"Unquestionably the Best Chinese Restaurant in ABQ. Maybe Even the state…" - Larry McGoldrick, Larry's Albuquerque Food Musings
