About Buddakan - Atlantic City
Buddakan has been called “a temple of modern Asian cuisine.” But it’s also a testament to the possibilities of inspired design. Upon entering, the first thing one sees is the surreal Asian garden surrounded by multi-level archways and 25-foot trees that seem to grow through rocks, footbridges and the ceiling itself. The dramatic atmosphere and enchanting karma is enhanced by the presence of a gigantic Golden Buddha that watches over the entire restaurant from a head of a 24-foot communal dining room table. The menu portrays an innovative interpretation of Asian Cuisine that matches the ambience in terms of creativity, inspiration and its capacity to satisfy. A delectably imaginative fusion of Chinese, French and Asian styles that results in dishes that exotic yet comforting – all prepared with perfectionist attention to the smallest detail.
Buddakan’s spectacular yet dreamlike ambience adds a new dimension to the array of destinations at the Pier at Ceasars.

Buddakan - Atlantic City Ratings and Reviews
This is my favorite restaurant for a handful of reasons, the service is always wonderful, the decor is beautiful, the atmosphere is always great..even though it’s an open lay out still very intimate experience, the food is unbelievable (although I always get the same thing, the edamame ravioli & vegetable fried rice it’s always on point) I come to Atlantic City 2-3 times a year and every time I do this is my favorite spot to have a beautiful romantic dinner with my husband thank you for always giving me an amazing experience
.The staff and service were professional and delightful.
Would have perhaps liked a choice of seating.There were a variety of menu selections and the server was knowledgeable and helpful in answering our questions.The meal was delightful from appetizer to dessert and we would return.
30th birthday celebration for 8 adults. We were stuck in a dark corner near the entrance to the kitchen. There were plenty of seats open in the restaurant. Food was excellent but ambience and service was below par. Felt so rushed by some of the servers and courses were coming out soooo fast there was actually no room on the table to put them and no time between courses to savor what we ate! One server didn’t even know what grain the salmon was being served on. We asked the next server and he gave us a very good answer but unfortunately he wasn’t our server for all the courses. To add insult to injury the birthday cake never came out. The server (that was the most professional) brought it out wrapped up and apologized for the other servers for forgetting. I have eaten at Buddakan before and left so impressed but not anymore. The bill was @ $600 for the birthday dinner. Never again!
Buddakan did not disappoint! I have now been to Phila, NYC & AC. The food was delicious. We had the print rolls, edamame m, pork dumplings, Caesar salad and wasabi encrusted filet. All were perfect. The filet you could cut with a fork. The dining area is intimate and beautifully done. I was happy to see the big Buddha like the one in Phila! Highly recommend and can’t wait to go back!
The food was really delicious and plentiful. The booths were very comfortable. Absolutely love the Buddha!! Our only problem was the parking issue. We used to get a credit and only pay $10 parking on a Saturday night. Last Saturday the cost was $30!!! We won’t be going back again until this issue is fixed!
Absolutely loved it! The food was impeccably prepared and presented. The staff was the finest! Couldn’t ask for a better meal, service or atmosphere. Will return as often as possible. A big thank you to the hostess, waiter and chef for an unforgettable evening.
Food was great and we had vegans and meatatarians in our group. There were enough options for all and they were all delicious! This was just perfect to celebrate the holidays and our anniversary with family. I recommend this for a special occasion because the ambience is extraordinary.
