combines the serenity of Asia with the flamboyance of 16th century Paris. The menu features fanciful interpretations of Chinese dishes and delights even the most discriminating palates.

45+ minute wait for our reservation. Finally settled and ordered in the waiting area ‘lounge’. Our table opened immediately after. Was assured our dinner order would be transferred to the main dining room, 30 minutes later after inquiring twice, it was obvious it was not. We reordered w the Second waiter who was more interested in providing good service. Food was good, 7.1/10
Very good service and food! Always love going there
Friends in town from Europe
Amazing ambiance! Food was pretty good too for the price. Our waitress forgot to order two of our sides but we ended up with plenty of food for 4 of us so it turned out to be good.
Tasty food and really kind service table BUT I was booking some weeks ago explaining the special occasion and, even if I expected to be in the main room, we were in a side really dark point.
Moreover, we were given the table with more than 30 minutes of delay compared to our reservation time and this quite ruined the special occasion surprise. Finally, really to noisy for a date or a special occasion, just suggested for groups
Excellent dishes and very professional service. Extremelly LOUD “dance music” interferes with conversations and leads to people yelling to each other around.
Music is so loud. attendants are so delayed. But the food is the best!
La atención de primera, la presentación de los platos impecables, la música acorde al lugar.
Los baños un poco desordenados.
Waiting over 45 minutes for a table. Then sat so close to next table that we made friends. Food is excellent though and waitress was super.
We Hand a reservation for 8 oclock ans Bad tonwait One Hour for our table. Not acceptable
Original place and delicious food!! The birthday cake was really good.
Fabulous food and superb service. There were 5 of us and we ordered an assortment of dim sum, appetizers, main dishes, side dishes and desserts. Not one dish was anything but perfect. This restaurant is hitting it on all cylinders.
Loved this place. Service phenominal , food fantastic. Loud and busy in a good city vibe way.
Food is pretty good. Not traditional Chinese. Service is sub par for the price of dinner
We are from Austria and eloped in NYC. We asked them if we could sit in the room where Carry and Mr. Big sat for their dinner and they accommodated us. All the staff was super friendly and congratulated us many times during the night. The food was super delicious and totally worth of this special occasion. We even received a complimentary sparkling wine and even a complimentary dessert. WOW! The whole team totally overdelivered with their tremendous service! Thank you so much for making this a very special night for us!!!
delicious food! highly recommend for late night dining when it’s not so full and busy.
It's lovely to be greeted personally, seated at a requested table, serviced by extraordinary staff, and dined on dependable favorites. No need to rave: everyone know how special Buddakan is.
Was a nice environment but was a bit too dark and loud. Food was nice but not good enough to warrant the price so not good value for money. Good service though.
Eccezionale cena e ambiente.
Cibo ottimo, servizio molto gradevole e per nulla opprimente. Piatti ottimi e dolci spaziali!
A nice place with good food - although the noise level is high and the lightning are a bit poor (so not recommended for elderly people) - bur a good place for at group of friend looking for a good dinner in a nice atmosphere.
We waited over one hour to have our table ready, even with reservation. It was outrageous, but the food was on point as always
Hicimos reservación con un mes de antelación. confirmamos el mismo día, llegamos 10 minutos antes y nos dejaron esperando parados una hora y media por reloj. El personal estuvo muy desagradable y ni siquiera nos buscaron un lugar en la barra para esperar... la comida regular igual y el lugar demasiado ruidoso...No volveré nunca más.
Lo máximo. Lo mejor de New York, de lejos!!!
Paravtoda ocasión, todo excelente
A bit overcrowded at the bar
Long wait for the table spoilt the dinner. Usually a great experience
Sitting in a cold wind coming up from the basement. The check was coming right after finishing with a feeling they wanted to clear the table for new guests right away.
Music was too loud. Conversation was impossible. Could not hear waiter.
Worst experience in my life 1hour to get the worst table
No one is able to say how long is the wait
We come every year for my birthday I absolutely love it. Buddahkan never disappoints food and atmosphere are always awesome.. My #1
Loved it. Our waiter could have been a little nicer but overall I think they strive to achieve the snooty vibe and the food outweighed everything else. Very loud and the tables are VERY close together but it didn't bother us much.
Our dinner was fantastic! We had the lamp chops, pork buns, and cauliflower lollipops to share and the strawberry mille feuille for dessert. Excellent cocktail and good wine selections as well. Was a bit too dark to see much so saw many people using cell phone lights to ready their menus. I would recommend brining the lights up a it to a warm tone to up the romantic vibes. The music did get progressively louder as the meal went on and was a bit too high for the atmosphere, but amazing none the less. Our server was lovely and I enjoyed that they were able to find us in the lounge when our table was ready just without a buzzer or texting us - excellent staff!
Food is always fantastic, as was the service. Great atmosphere. Beautiful decor.
The food and the place is absolutely divine. If we ever get back to NY we will go back here for sure
11:15 res. Didn’t seat 4 of us until 11:45. Poorly organized and seemingly front desk policy to make you wait regardless. Too many better options. Will not go back.
The food is SO good! However, even though the service is good and they were very friendly, it´s VERY SLOW!!!!
We waited 45 minutes for a reserve table a month in advance with every excuse under the sun as to why we had no table. I have gone to this restaurant over a dozen times in the last few years. I will no longer make reservations here again. There are thousands of places to eat in NYC, they need to get there staff under control and service back on track. The woman who check you in are rude and disrespectful. They act they are doing the patrons a favor instead of proving a service. Sad to say, but the quality and service has been sliding for over a year now. The place is basically a place for people to drink. Overall poor service and poor attitude.
Simply amazing. The food, the music, the ambience... everything perfet for a date night. Oustanding!!!
Too loud for us. Some food was great. We do not recommend the lollipop dish.
Beautiful interior.... however arriving with a 7pm reservation and not being seated until 7.30pm is not very impressive. Food was good but the portions small for the price. We had a nice time but expected a better experience.
