A word from Buddha Sky Bar
Buddha Sky Bar; an Asian concept with design and cuisine influences rooted in Chinese and Japanese interpretations.

A discrete third floor location with off the Avenue access creates an exclusive feel for guests upon arrival. A glass encased rooftop arboretum overlooks downtown Delray Beach. A walk through the kitchen leads to the outdoor "Chef's Table", perfect for private events. Asian accents complement the authenticity of the cuisine featuring Dim Sum, Sushi, & Wok selections from our 'from-scratch' kitchen.

The three-part menu nods to different food preparations including an open sushi bar, a full kitchen as well as Delray Beach's first Binchotan charcoal grill. In addition to traditional menu items like Peking Style Duck it also features a great vegetarian selection.

Buddha Sky features full dinner service at all seats. Due to limited space, reservations are recommended, including bar & sushi bar seats.

Diner Reviews
  • "Sunday date nite with my wife and we thoroughly enjoyed everything. I am an exec chef so I can see all staff training has paid off and is running professionally and I have nothing but praise for this restaurant !! Great job"

  • "We enjoyed dining as it was an experience. The appetizers and food were great with the exception of the chicken satay. It was basically plain grilled (no flavor) chicken with a side of peanut sauce and cucumber oil. For $23 it was definitely not worth it. Everything else was great. Will definitely go back for drinks and appetizerS."

  • "Hands down some of the best specialty rolls to be had in Palm Beach County. Our waiter did a great job being both personable and professional, though I did have to resort to hand waving a few times to get his attention as he sped away. My major gripe was the hangover from the happy hour bar crowd, whose boisterous vocalizations and impromptu mid-restaurant photo shoot suggested that they may have had a few too many. Once they were kindly escorted towards the exit, the ambiance improved by a few notches. While the restaurant is glass-fronted, don't go here expecting much more than views of the infernal traffic and glimmering lights of East Atlantic."

  • "I took my wife for our 10 year anniversary to Buddha Sky. The staff made us feel special, everyone knew who we were, and held a special table for the occasion. Gus, our server was the BEST! Thank you Buddha & Gus...we will see you soon!"

  • "Being Chinese and being brought up in New York and having a father in the restaurant business; gives me a greater sense of what Dim Sum should taste like and how service should be. This is not your average Chinese Dim Sum that you'd get at a New York Mott Street restaurant. They do not have the same amount of different dishes, but what they have is just outstanding,very tasty and elegantly presented. We also added in the magnificent Sushi dishes (all too many to name) and the dinner was spectacular to say the least!My whole family enjoyed Fathers Day together at this wonderful restaurant and the service as always was outstanding (thanks to our waiter Giovanni)!!"

  • "I really like this restaurant downtown Delray. It's dark and romantic upstairs with a great view. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The happy hour is not to be missed...1/2 price food (most, but not all of menu), and drinks (most wines, but not all)...noodles with mushrooms (not on 1/2 price menu) are great..."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "As recommended by our competent server, we ordered our meal in stages: sushi, dim sum and main course. Food was excellent. Standouts were the Handsome Rob roll, rock shrimp, black cod skewers and wild mushroom noodles. Beef skewers were accompanied by two great sauces. Meat was slightly overcooked for us. Seafood Shu Mai was good, but not as successful as the dishes listed above. My friend ordered a mojito and said it was one of the best he's had in South Florida. The staff was professional and skilled. We look forward to trying everything on the menu. The Sky Bar was a little too energetic for us on Saturday night. We plan to try the other floors as well. If you are dining solo, however, I would definitely head to the Sky Bar. "

  • "Two vegetarians and two carnivores all enjoyed our meals. Ceviche appetizer was the best1 I have had in this country, and the lettuce wraps were excellent. The guys loved the meat skewers. Our server couldn't have been better, very attentive and answered all our questions. Great selection of wines and cocktails. All in all, a great meal and a great evening."
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "The happy hour here rocks! Everything is half-off including their delicious specialty drinks! The only complaint would be the time. They offer happy hour from 4-6pm, which also means the early bird oldies flock to the joint. Making it until 7pm would be perfect!! "
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "We went for happy hour. Drinks and food were half price. We ordered many items from the Dim Sum and sushi menu. Everything was good and some items were excellent. It was very pleasant to be up high. View is of Delray, but not to ocean. Service was terrific. Not at all crowded when we arrived, although the place filled up by the time were left. "

  • "Have been to buddha sky bar many times. Food is almost always perfect and the service is excellent. One of the better views in Delray Beach on the avenue being on the 3rd floor overlooking Delray. I normally go for happy hour where almost everything on the menu and cocktails are half price. Outside of Happy Hour it can get a little pricey. Definitely worth checking out for Happy Hour which is currently 4-6 seven days a week. Enjoy."
