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.

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.

Amazing ambience and excellent food. Wanted to come back before we even left. The scene is great. Came to enjoy friends' company and to catch up. We weren't rushed to order or to leave, which is a great plus.

The server was great! The restaurant was very cold which made our food cold fast. My date wanted to leave early because it was so cold.
