    First time here and have to say that the ambiance and service are great. Food is also very good but not quite a 5. Definitely worth the experience

    Host/Staff/Waitress was phenomenal. Attention to detail, hospitable, warm, inviting, food was spectacular. Special thanks to the host & our waitress for going above and beyond to accommodate our party. The bride/mom to be was overjoyed for her first experience at Buddakan. Thank you so much for a wonderful night.

    The food was generally very good specially the duck, the pasta and the rice but the lamb chops were flavorless. It was a bit noisy. Not very suitable for chatting with friends which I believe is the best thing about dining out

    Had such a great experience at Buddakan this past Friday night. Our waiter was so attentive and the food was absolutely amazing. Would highly recommend the frozen cocktail- not only was it so good but other tables were coming up to ask us what we got. The short rib was to die for, the black pepper beef was great and the only thing we weren’t absolutely crazy about was the lobster fried rice. It wasn’t bad- just a little dry. Would highly recommend for a fun (but expensive) night out or special occasion!!!

    Staff at entrance are unwelcoming. 8 people at front desk & ignore us for 5 minutes very poor. Server was excellent. Food very good but not exceptional for the price. Felt conned by the price of the crab rice $30 and only 2 tiny pieces of crab on top. A fun restaurant but risking hype over substance.

    Amazing food and atmosphere. We were only frustrated to not receive any guidance on how much food our party of 5 should order. When we asked him if he thought we had ordered enough, he said "I think you have plenty." Little did we know we ordered enough food to serve 10 people and couldn't finish most of the dishes following the appetizers. We even asked if some of the entrees could be canceled after we filled up on apps, he said he would ask the kitchen only to see all of the entrees come out anyway. I'm sure he wasn't motivated to help us scale back since he was wanting the tip on a $600 tab.

    Exceptional food - whole sea bass was perfectly prepared & seasoned, bitter greens exceptional. Vibe, decor unique, interesting. Wait staff OK, brought all courses at the same time, said the chef insists on everything served at once. Food encourages you to stay, wait staff hurries you out the door. Worth it for the food.

    The restaurant is a tourist trap. The website does not reflect the ambience, the sound, the service and the promise. It is a fast food dressed as something supposedly fun. What is the point of asking patrons to order the full food order at once. Sell wine by the glass. But do not pour the wine in front of the client….it is probably doing good business, so managers will read this and say…thanks for your feedback, but we do not care…A place For students, music ridiculously loud…A trap, the worst experience in years. Food is proper for what it promises. Everything else is misleading.

    This time I went with my wife. Food was nice but expensive for what we had. We were sat in an alley at the back rather than the big room. I have been as part of a much larger group before and had a great time and loved the tasting menu.

    Service was excellent. Accommodated my husbands onion allergy. He got to eat nearly everything we ordered by modifying the dishes for him. Food was really good as well! Pricey but worth it for a splurge!
