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.

    This is the 5th or 6th time we have been to this restaurant this year. The food, service, and overall experience has always been outstanding. It makes it difficult to try new places. This place is exactly what I want for my infrequent nights out...creative dishes, happening scene, consistently great attentive service with an aim to please from everyone who works there.

    This is our favorite restaurant in Delray Beach. The food and service are always great. There's a beautiful view and ambiance. We don't get as good an experience when we visit the sister restaurant downstairs, Buddha Garden, though so make sure you go to the upstairs restaurant- Buddha Sky Bar. Happy hour is usually when we go too because the prices can be a little high but there is a great happy hour menu- half priced menu and drinks.

    We were two couples celebrating our anniversaries. Our table was ready as promised with a view of Atlantic (we had requested A table by the window). We started with drinks, then ordered appetizers, the Korean ribs are the best, The scallops were absolutely fantastic, the shrimp was great. Then we decided to order more Appetizers instead of diner. The teriyaki beef kabobs were melt in your mouth delicious, and the lamb chops were tasty. As always the fried rice was the best we ever had. We had wanted to take our friends out for a great dinner,and Buddah Sky Bar delivered! By the way, our server, Giovani was wonderful. Couldn't have asked for a better night.

    Cool ambiance, clubby type of feel. Edamame with truffle oil, I mean obviously you order that. Delicious. The sushi all sounded amazing. We asked the server to recommend and his picks were amazing. Very creative sushi rolls and packed with flavor. Didn't need soy sauce. Good drinks, good service. Perfect spot for date night. We will definitely go back!

    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.

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    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)!!

    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.

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.
