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.
Excellent food (typical for a Starr restaurant). Superb service (typical for a Starr restaurant). Met Stephen Starr. Couldn’t have been a better experience... ;)
The service for serving food was great everything was fast. The getting seated part is becoming a trend for Buddakan to keep you waiting ~30 mins past your reservation slot. Every time they will ask me to be seated at the lounge and take at least 30 mins to get my party seated. What is the point of making a reservation up ahead instead when I can walk in and it would take the same time to get me seated? That experience is terrible.
Great food with an exciting atmosphere!
Excellent food and service in a hip atmosphere. The lemon lobster and edamame dumplings are amazing! I’m definitely going back!
It truly was a wonderful experience. From the kind folks in the front, our server and to the food. Will go back, many times.
We love budahakn. We ordered too much and so the bill was high!!! But we come every year and will go again next year. Maybe order less dumplings🤣🤣
Waiter was very nice and quick. Had good information about the food.
We had the prefix food was amazing i will def go back again
Beautiful decor attentive service & delicious food. Pricey but worth every cent Buddakan is the perfect date night location!
Even though we made a reservation we had to wait for a long time, after that we got a table and were supposed to each as quick as possible as much as possible. In the end the waiter was surprised that I wasnt willing to tip 20% on the ridiculous tab. Awful spot
Vday. Super friendly hostess and waitress. We ordered the salmon dumplings, vegetable friend rice, Asian vegetables, sweet and crispy shrimp, sautéed tofu. Everything was amazing! The only thing I didn’t like is they serve the food as it’s ready and also you don’t necessarily sit in the main dining room which is what attracted me to the place in the first place.
The noise level was a little too high to call this a romantic dinner but the food and service more than made up for it. They were super crowded but never did we have to look for our waiter it was almost like she read our minds! Phenomenal!
The food was divine! I would definitely recommend it to my friends. The beef I ordered was cooked to perfection! ✅
Very popular restaurant in a very popular area. Overall food, drinks snd service was very good.
Excellent food and service. I will definitely be back here again.
Amazing food, loved the ambiance can’t wait to come again
Loved it! Def worth going!
Awesome experience. Loud club like atmosphere so not great for an intimate quiet conversation but the energy and food are amazing!
Great Food and Service! Went for Birthday and brought out candle with even asking so great !
The restaurant overall was a nice experience. The ambiance was nice. The food was great. But too dark and noisy.
This is one of my favorite places to eat because they never seem to dissapoint. The general tso dumplings, rock shrimp and lobster fried rice were a hit. I also had the sizzling short rib which was prepared well but overall I wasn’t a fan. I had the blush to drink and it was GREAT!!
Food was delicious - highly recommend the chili rock shrimp
Celebrating our anniversary
The place is amazingly beautiful
The music is great but play way to low “turn up the volume!!!;)”
Food is absolutely delicious!!
Beautiful restaurant and ambiance. Food was delicious and brought out in no time.
Love both locations NYC and Philadelphia.. would recommend this restaurant to anyone.. great food and atmosphere..and not to mention the duck oh my you have to try the duck and the short ribs... as for drinks I get a lychee martini and for a non alcoholic drink the blush for the win it’s an experience you will not forget
exceeded expectations, unreal food, service even better
Food, drinks and ambience are good, but service is spotty and noise level is just too loud.
Food was delicious
Service was very good
Ambiance was striking and attractive
Noise was HORRIBLE - The music was way too loud and intrusive as all the tables around us were commenting. We have eaten here often and never encountered this before. Did not make for a great Valentine's meal where we could not hear each other speak. What happened?
This place is amazing. From the ambiance to the food, you cannot go wrong. If you are looking for a quiet restaurant, this place is not for you. They have music playing but we enjoyed it!! I would definitely recommend this place 100 times over again!
Everything was perfect! The food, the music, the service... everything was great!! The dessert was delicious.
I went here for Valentines Day, and I thought it was great for the occasion. It was upscale, a little pricey, and had very delicious food. I definitely recommend trying the General Tso’s Dumplings, the Cauliflower Lollipops and the Shrimp & Scallop main entree.
It was amazing! Our waitress Cali was incredible! Everything was delicious and the ambiance was beautiful.
We had an outstanding time at Buddakan. The food was excellent but the service even better. The check in could be a bit better. One of our party was late and rather than honor our request to be seated to wait, they insisted we go to the bar that was crowded and no place to sit. other than that, it was a great experience.
I have been to Buddakan on multiple occasions. I am never dissatisfied by the atmosphere, outstanding service, and the ambiance Buddakan possesses. However, on this particular occasion, the meat (On both my steak and chicken) were subpar, and dry.
Great experience at Buddakan. The main room is beautiful, all of the staff were extremely attentive and helpful (we wanted to switch tables and they easily accommodated), and the food was excellent. Service was great. Highly recommend.
Great service and great food, as always
Nice ambience. Awesome food.
Pricey but it's an experience
