Came here for my bachelorette party dinner with my friends. Loved the ambience and absolutely loved the food! I think you get a lot of food for the price. The cauliflower lollipops were my favorite and the scallion pancakes with short rib. For dinner I had the short rib chow fun—amazing. Can’t wait to come back!

The ambiance is great! I loved the appetizers, but my children did not like the Shrimp and scallops in lobster sauce.

Excellent ambiance, service and very good food. Highly recommend for those that like sexy venues for dining with a moderate noise level and “BuddahBar” style music playing at a moderate volume. Had an Anniversary dinner there and it was definitely a great place to celebrate it.

El lugar es impresionante y con buen ambiente para tragos y hablar con amigos, pero no me pareció un buen representante de la alta gastronomía. El servicio muy amable, pero distraído.

Good food, great ambiance and perfect for date night. Tofu dish left more to be desired but server graciously removed it from the bill. Drinks are creative.

The food was good, but not exceptional. I was hoping for a bit of spice in the pepper crab, but it was a bit mild and bland. Not bad, just not great either The portions were large. And service was very good.

Got together with my sister and her son and his girlfriend for a special evening as I live overseas. I was initially a bit grumpy as they sent you in a jam packed bar where I thought there would no way that the hostess would find us and initially no seats available but very quickly seats opened up, the waitress came for drink orders and the hostess did find us for our table so despite the perceived chaos everything worked. And when we got to the table despite the crowds of people we had a wonderful but intimate dinner and our waiter paid total attention the whole evening, he was terrific, genuine, helpful and kind. And the dinner ended up being just about 400$ with tip which I thought was super given there were four of us and we had four entrees and three appetizers and two bottles of wine. Great evening! Definitely recommend and don't be put off if at first it seems impersonal. It gets better, much!

Buddkan NYC has gone down hill... service was average , felt more like a local diner experience.. not high end at all or ‘special’ ... thinking they need a update and refresh because it’s pretty stale. Won’t be going back again, and I’ve been to Philly/NYC locations over 8-9 x

The food is amazing. Best modern Chinese cuisine. The service is overall good. Was sloppy at one point - the waiter didn’t change our wine glasses when we had a new
bottle of wine, but he made it up graciously. The ambience was a bit too noisy. The music choice could’ve been better.
Booked it for a special birthday dinner and they acknowledged that and put in effort to make it special. That’s the most important.
