Too limited in selections. Friendly staff.m4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favoritesOne of my favorite restaurants in San Juan. We visit more than once monthly.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were early for our reservation;We were early for our reservation; they couldn't have been nicer & gave us a window table. I took my 16 year old daughter while we were on vacation and she loved thT it was a "hot spot". We tried noodle specialties & chicken empanadas which were great. They have a killer cream brûlée. It is pricey but worth it.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, as wasFood was excellent, as was the service. The appetizers, sushi and noodle/rice dishes were much more interesting than the main courses. We did six appetizers and one noodle dish for the three of us and it was perfect. The dumplings were wonderful, as was the tuna roll with truffle. The scallop noodle dish was like a very creative pad Thai. Everything we had was delicious, except the shrimp shu Mai. They were fine but the wrapper a little too thick. Sat on the terrace and it was lovely.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTakes Asian to a whole newTakes Asian to a whole new level. We were 3 men and one woman, and ordered four or five small plates and one entrée, and we were very full at the end. The pork loin entrée was too much for one female to eat. The potstickers were very good. Our waitress was very knowledgeable. Make sure you don't mistake the chopsticks for bread sticks!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBudatai IS the best! We waitedBudatai IS the best! We waited until we sampled all of our dining experiences during our eight days in Puerto Rico before writing any reviews. The depth of flavors created with our various courses were amazing! Churrasco Skirt Steak was absoultely spot on and the Ahi Tuna prepared seared / rare with wasabi nuts and homemade gnocchi was a tremnsous treat. While others may have the reputation for being number 1, Budatai IS number one. Don't miss out on avfantastic experience and a room with a view...over La Ventana del Mar. Within a "Safe" waliking distance from the major hotels in Condado, or worth the cab fare. Don't miss it. We won't!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWent twice on my 3 night vacation!This place was amazing - it was right across the street from our hotel and we went the first night we were in town. It was so amazing we returned 2 nights later because we just had to have the Dim Sum again before returning home!
Try to get a seat outside - it is a lovely view.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
