Michael Hootman and Anucha Onongard have a love for Thai tradition. You’ll notice that at their restaurant, Buddha Ruska, traditional Thai decor and ingredients are the backbone of what they do! At Buddha Ruska, they believe Thai food is all about balance. It’s about combining salty, sweet, and spicy flavors to find perfect harmony.

Pro tip: Order their crispy garlic chicken, it’s their specialty!

  1. There is a really good reason that this place is a West Seattle top hit. I have had it recommended to me so many times from very different people and it is because their chicken is truly delicious.
