Brian our server was great!
Great ambiance, excellent service, food was delicious, portions were a bit small for the price but overall very good 4/5
Great outdoor setup. A little pricey but overall worth it.
We went to celebrate my son’s birthday. The food was amazing! We will definitely go back
Everything was amazing as usual, and felt great to be back in NYC. Missed the inside ambience but loved the alfresco!
Food came cold and super late! It definitely much better in the past!
Loved it. Phenomenal Place. Would love to eat inside tho once NYC is ready
Wao!!nice experience, beautiful place,I'm lovely food,good service, perfect for now outdoor dinner.yes I'm recommended. Go is good.
The outside decorating was really cute I like the ambiance and the fish was great but the wok noodle was so soggy and a bit blend
And the cocktail was not impressive
However the moms and ambiance was great as well as the server
She was really kind and attentive !
The food is not good, so small plates and not good enough.
Right now with Covid still in the picture, Buddakan did a great job with service and ambiance. The only problem I had was rushing the meal and how much better the presentation was indoors.
But, all in all enjoyed the experience.
Great set up and ambiance for “social distancing “ al fresco. We had a great night. Our waiter was fantastic
Drinks are over-priced and couldn't taste the alcohol in them. Appetizer came out before drinks and our main courses came out barely warm shortly after we ordered them as we barely finished our appetizer. Our server barely paid us attention so when my silverware was dirty I had to wait to find the server to eat my appetizer and then waited almost 10 minutes for him to return with a clean set. People walking by without masks on was very frustrating and felt uncomfortable if you're not in the tables with barriers or set back from the sidewalk. Won't go back until normal dining returns and Covid disappears.
Great food. It smelled a little bit around there. Maybe add some scents or something :)
Food was not fresh.
Peking duck was terrible!
First time here and it didn't disappoint. Food was awesome and so was the service. They did a lovely job with what they can do in terms of their outdoor seating. I liked their face can mask/temperature detector. I think that was pretty neat and useful. Would come again to sit outdoor, even inside look amazing and clean when using the restroom.
Buddakan was recommended by a friend's coworker. Brought my bestie and mom here for a birthday dinner celebration. I absolutely enjoyed our dinner. The food was excellently delicious, the service was excellent, the ambiance, though outside due to COVID 19, was excellent. Everything was excellent.
They have a good set up for covid outside but the service was terrible. They weren’t bringing out dishes on time and waitress forgot our wine. I love this restaurant but this time the service was very bad.
Really missed the ambience of dining inside, but the food is excellent as always. Cocktails are great. Had a wonderful dinner.
I appreciate the effort they put into making the sidewalk festive. Service was very nice. Food was excellent.
Great outdoor seating figuring the location of the restaurant is at a busy intersection.
The outdoor setup is safe — plexiglass between tables—attractive and brilliant.
Such a great dinner. Their outside area is nicely done. Amazing food and service.
Our family is a huge fan of Buddakan and we try to visit every time we're in New York. We were thrilled to see the restaurant had outdoor seating. It worked out great.
It was a pleasure to enjoy a great meal outside an buddakan services was very kind taking our meal look forward to eating there again an I love the inside just looking while I use the bathroom
Food, service, and outdoor dining were all amazing.
We were excited to go back to Buddahkan with thier new outdoor dinning. However, we were deeply disappointed with the outdoor dining space. Having been to the restaurant before so many times the inside is so elegant and formal and the new current outdoor dinning space is completely informal. The use of uncomfortable metal chairs, tables with no table cloths, plastic cups and plates, no coffee or tea service and only one dessert as an option was a complete disappointment. The quality of the food was outstanding as always but the informal ambiance and setting did not make a pleasant experience and did not match the prices of the food. The current ambiance of the restaurant is more like an informal cafe and not the elegant restaurant it is. We will not be going back to the restaurant unless the prices are lowered for the outdoor dinning space or when the indoor space is reopen. Overall Budahhkan is not worth the trip.
Food was terrible! Oysters were smelly. Too pricey for a terrible experience. Will never come back.
The service was absolutely terrible. The waiter didn’t come for a long time to take our order. My husband’s beer was 3/4 full and my wine looked way less than a 5 oz pour. For $16 for a glass of wine, I would expect a proper pour at a place like this. I’ve been here many times in the past but this has to be one of the worst experience. The edamame dumplings aren’t good enough anymore for me to return to this place after this horrible experience. Covid is not an excuse for bad service.
One of the best outdoor dining experiences I’ve had in New York in this environment. The staff was extremely friendly and made it a memorable evening.
this was such a fun meal with amazing delicious food. loved the outdoor atmosphere!
It was a lovely experience. Our waitress was nice and very attentive to our needs. The tranquility drink was a hit amongst my friends and I. I had the lobster fried rice which was absolutely amazing.
Really great food!! The service was excellent. The outdoor seating was very nice. The ambiance was perfect.
The restaurant did a nice job setting up outside. it was quiet and comfortable. food and drinks were very good and the service was great. nothing compares to eating inside but i would certainly recommend it in times like these.
The nicest waiter but completely overpriced and food was good not great.
I considered the bill a donation to the restaurant workers .
Beware of small glasses of wine for 20$
Did not like plastic serving ware
Apart from the rubbish truck that went for a while down the street, it was a fantastic night. Nicely partitioned, comfortable seating. Waiter recommend two cocktails and they were superb. Had the tasting plate of dumplings, a great way to check them all out as too hard to decide on one flavour. Absolutely divine, had a chicken skewers dish and lobster fried rice again amazing .
Highly recommend a visit, beautiful food, drink, service and ambience! Don’t forget to make a reservation!
Lovely night market. Buddakan did a great job setting up outside. Great waiter, Brian. Good drinks and food.
Amazing new patio- great food!
A welcomed relief considering the current climate (covid-19). Still on their game with exceptional food. Ambience and experience still a work in progress and expected...will certainly return as usual...
