The place is not cheap but the quality of food, service and ambience matches it.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways amazingTook family from out of town to Buddakan. The food was amazing as always. Edemame dumplings and filet are a must. Carrot cake was exceptional. Service was impeccable. The meal was paced perfectly. Everyone left extremely happy. I will always take my out of town guests here. It is so constistently wonderful. And the downstairs main dining room is such a beautiful and elegant attraction. The noise level is definitely a little high.... But I really can't complain. We had the best time! I could eat the whole meal again today!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. The service wasGreat place. The service was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and the food was great. It was a little loud. The setting was not romantic, but I was still pleasantly pleased with the experience. My wife was impressed with the quality of our meal- that meant the most. It Defintely didn't feel like we were in nyc. We escaped for a while. The cocktails were fantastic. Thier "fate" cocktail is totally worth trying. Fun place. Going back- soon!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing food. the place isamazing food. the place is hard to notice from the outside as its just a big grey block with a small sign. It's very dark on the inside with no windows. There are a number of different dining rooms. Selection and food was fantastic!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial eveningIt was our anniversary so of course we wanted something memorable and a bit of romance.

The restaurant is huge but has several dining room so you don't feel you are in so big place. It can accomodate big groups .6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBuddakan id the GoTo spotEntertained a Partner Company and all they could do was rave about Buddakhan, that night and the next day, so much so that others at that Partner Company approached me the next day and said "...wish I had gone last night..."6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary to Remember!First time at restaurant exceeded expectations!Service is first rate,requested a quiet table,changed reservation time,no problem!Food and drinks all excellent,recommend the spring rolls,edadame dumplings,scallion pancakes,miso cod,short ribs,cauliflower stir-fry,and crying chocolate cake!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!The food was brilliant as was the wine and service!

Great time, great food - thank you Buddakan!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place!The decor and ambience of the restaurant always brings me back! It is great for groups or for an intimate night out. I always try something new whenever I go and I have tasted decent ( =/ ) to delicious ( =D ) plates. I am never disappointed with the lobster fried rice and the tranqulity and haze cocktails.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMTexan travels to nyTraveled here w girlfriend for a long weekend and wanted to try some nice restaurants. The only negative was that our reservation was for 1015 and we got there @ 10:18 and we had to wait 20-25 minutes to be seated. It was pretty hectic because the bar at the front of the restaurant was really packed and the employee who checked us In just told us to wonder around In the front room for an unspecified amount of time. They amazingly found us 10 min later and asked me if we wanted to wait to be seated in a quieter place. The man was really apologetic about our waiting and after that the evening was great.
Excellent food and the ambience of the whole restaurant is extremely unique, you will not find a place like this in Texas!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food in an amazing setupThe food was great including the mushroom chow mien, the shrimp dumplings were delicious and the mongolian lamb chops were cooked to perfection with every bite thought out and every texture present. The flavors the food presented were nothing short of great. The one upsetting aspect of our experience was that our waiter seemed to be in a hurry to move us along and get our order in. We were trying to just enjoy the time and the waiter was being a bit pushy in trying to force our order. Aside from this, the waiter was very knowledgable and helpful with the menu and trying to cater to the customer's palate.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice!We enjoyed our evening, food was very good, we loved retro champagne glasses and not to mention, the famous deal closure! Will go back!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding interior architecture!Good food...great atmosphere but server and hostess werent very friendly. But i would return becauae the place is gorgeous!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMgood ambiancewe really enjoyed the dinner,it was delicious and the service was excellent.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA unique venueWe were visting New York and recommended this restaurant by friends in Sydney and London who had both been. The venue itself is rather unique, completely unexpected and rather spectacular. The food was fastastic and I still find myself thinking about one entree in particular....pity it's so far from Australia! Definitely recommend visiting, a great experience.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't Be Put Off By HostessesThe women staffing the reservations desk were obnoxious, and seemingly oblivious to concerns about whether my reservation would be honored in a timely fashion. Once seated, however, the rest of the staff seemed pleasant and competent.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAwsomeFoods, wine and service was awsome. The drinks were not unfortunately.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect!!!The place is beautiful, the food is delicious and the price is fair! I strongly recommend this restaurant for everybody that goes to NY!!!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSo good evening with terrificSo good evening with terrific food, wine and service plus cool music.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCracking ChineseI have been in NYC for a couple of days now, and to be honest have been largely disappointed with the food. Most restaurants are overpriced and deliver sub par service. NOT BUDAKHAN!!! Coming from Glasgow, I have had my fair share of Chinese meals, none were a patch on the food here. We had a mixed starter, (bo bo plate) it was brilliant, but if we went back, I would be all over the boneless ribs. For mains, we shared pepper beef and a scallop dish, both of which were superb. Sausage fried rice was novel if a little underwhelming, but the real pick of the bunch was the prawn udon. This when really well with both the beef (surprisingly) and the scallops.
The drinks were well priced too.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, felt rushThis is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. I've been on several occasions and this time was for my bday. Drinks and food were delicious as always, however it felt rushed. We had a later reservation, and would have enjoyed a casual, intimate dinner. there were no breaks in between the apps and entrees which left us stuffed with no breathing time - I was so stuffed by the end I could not fnished the meal and had no room for their amazing desserts. I'm not sure if the fault lies with the waiter or kitchen but a leisurely dinner was not in the cards6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe same old good thingThat's absolutely not new any more and people wrote hundreds of reviews already...
It is nice, loud and fun as it has always been.
I like it because always there is something on the menu that impresses me...
Will come again...6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!Great food, great ambiance! Would definitely come back for a date night or a group dinner! Try the braised spare ribs and a noodle dish! :)6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGrade. -AEverything was great. Two things I didn't like: Inexpensive wine was a little too pricy and they removed the coconut rice. That rise was perfect! Bring it back :)6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMsuperbGreat food and ambience must check and see, you won't be disapointed.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA special night outWe all had a great night at Buddakan. Decor, service,food and drinks were all fabulous. We had the $80 banquet and would highly recommend this option.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!Outstanding is just a small word to describe how AMAZING its this place!! We came a bit early and we were sat at the bat for a beautiful coktail,then 1 of the staff came to bring us to our table. Decor, the table setting, the atmosphere, was incredible.
Service was great, and the food... Simply the best!!! Just amazing!!! We shared 3 dishes, and im still dreaming about the carott dumpling it was delicious. Then we had each a main course, i had the black pepper beef, well , how to say, STUNNING!!!
When i did the open table booking few months ago, i asked them if they can do something for my partner s birthday, and when the desert came, a hppy birtday message was writen on the plate!
THANK U THANK U THANK U
WE HAD AN AMAZING MOMENT !!!!!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMreinvented chinese food classicsSome reinventions were a hit - a more refined chow fun noodle with wild mushrooms, a ma poe tofu and shrimp toast were the very very good. Some were not as great -- everything tasted good it was just that some items don't compare to your 'favorite' version at a chinese restaurant you have been to before. The drink menu featured several awesome cocktails.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA Special NightThe service was terrific, the food was above excellent and the entire experience was well worth the price. I would recommend this resturant to anyone looking for a culinary treat.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was deliciousOnly caveat is that it was a bit pricey for Asian Fusion. It was otherwise terrific6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and a beautifulVery good food and a beautiful place! They added tip to our bill, and it was over 20%.

TheWhat a great restaurant. The food was incredible! Would definitely recommend this restaurant.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful foodI can not find fault with this restaurant. The food was perfect, especially the boneless spare ribs which melted in the mouth. The service started out great but started getting a little slack towards the end but we got the feeling our waiter was new so chopped it up to that. However this was not enough to put anything negitive on the experience. Overall everything was beautiful and I will definetly be returning on my next trip to NYC, and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves food and great ambiance.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMmet with the hypeHave wanted to go to Buddakan for years and finally made it for my 53rd birthday!
