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
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.
Restaurant was fantastic. Food was delicious. Place is loud so if you are hard of hearing or sensitive to noise, it’s not the place for you. We on the other hand loved it. We can talk loud without eveyone hearing our conversation. Drinks and food were 5 star!
The food to be shared is always wonderful. We shared the spring rolls and then the Duck, Lobster Fried Rice, and Shrimp Lorain. The food was delicious, hot, and ready to be shared.
Our waitress was wonderful - she provided the beverages and we had two specialty drinks and they were wonderful. However, we were asked to change our table twice to satisfy other table requests and I thought a complimentary drink might have been in order since we satisfied all of the restaurant’s requests. We were delivered by our waitress a cupcake with a candle since it was my wife’s birthday. We appreciated her gesture.
This was my 4th time at Buddakan and it’s been just as amazing each visit. The edamame ravioli are a MUST. Everything we had was cooked perfectly, flavorful, and unique! Pork belly steam buns, wasabi crusted filet mignon, and beef fried rice are also all to die for! Get here!
Unfortunately This is not at all what I remember when visiting 5 years ago, We had the chefs tasting special , sea bass, filet mignon and chicken with some salad ,appetizers and a dessert . All which sounds good for the 60 per person value but it was all just ok with some of the appetizers and dessert not all that great ,
Service was at best, just fair , seemed like we were bothering the waitress more than anything bit of an attitude.....Maybe just a bad overall night , dont think I would try it again
Pleasant experience from the minute I️ walked in the restaurant. The host was very friendly and had a great attitude. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and made I️t easier for us to decide what we wanted. Overall I️ enjoyed the experience and would definitely return as well as recommend this location to all my friends and family. Thanks again!
Fantastic! Fiance’s birthday and requested seating at Buddha table. Large party was dining at same time of our reservation, but the staff had us seated right off of the large table - up front with the Buddha, and my fiancé loved it! The food & cocktails were delicious too! A great evening for two!
We had a reservation at 5:30pm on 11/4/17 our anniversary. Outstanding place the service was fast and polite. Our server Morgan explained the menu very well she even surprised us with glasses of champange. Recommend the pepper beef steak with a side of white rice if you like spicy! Cantonese spring rolls and the wasabi mustard is delicious. Looking forward for my birthday week in a few months will be dining here again! Thanks again from Britt and Chris
The food was mediocre at best. Returned cocktail for another .
Not the caliber of the NYC meat packing Buddakan

Very noisy .
Staff was lovely and tried to please.. but it was in vain.
