Great food and good service. Would go again to eat.
We arrived and to my surprise it was empty. We were brought to a table that the chairs had arms and with my bad hips I could not sit there and asked to change tables. The person seating us was eager to help but needed to get her supervisor's OK.
The charred filet of beef was the best thing we’ve eaten, the rest of the food we ordered was good as well.
Great experience, incredible service and good food portions.
Wonderful experience- loved the food and the experience
Broad Asian fusion (mostly Chinese inspired) menu with options for all tastes - all the food is quite good. High end setting and giant internal space - your guests will feel like they're in a proper NYC restaurant. The staff team is also terrific - a bonus.
Omg the food was incredibly delicious,, went for my daughters birthday,, the light for pics wasn’t that great but we manage to get a few .. but the food from drinks to desert was excellent
Late night dining. Great food. Energetic, trendy vibe.
Service and atmosphere was great. For the money, the food was not good.
Service was great.
Outdoor really isn’t that good here. Sit inside.
Love the food and the place’s decorations but the noise and music were too loud just like Tao 😩 My friend and I were literally screaming at each other.
Even after 15 years, Buddakan never disappoints. Food is very good and the service is outstanding. I recommend tasting menu 3.
Amazing ambiance with great food. Highly recommended.
Great vibe, awesome food. Love the dumpling tasting for 2
Excellent food. Inside of the restaurant was super cool, but we are outside and it wasn’t attractive.
The food was decent, and our server was attentive during our meal. While we do appreciate the lively atmosphere, it ended up being so loud that we could not hear across the table, which served to diminish the evening.
Service was excellent, food was delicious and the restaurant is super cool
Excellent food and great ambiance!
The food was good but the service was really poor.
Birthday celebration for friends from Switzerland-fabulous
The service at Buddakan was amazing! The staff was great and super friendly. The food was delicious! Will definitely be back.
Food was great per usual, but the server had too many tables and she was not able to attend us when needed, but she was nice and full of joy.
Loved dining at Buddakan. Great place to celebrate a special occasion. Food was absolutely delicious!
Great service and vibe
Terrific service, great ambiance and good food.
The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was great. The service could have been better as our waiter seemed to lose interest as soon as we ordered smaller bites.
Atmosphere was gorgeous !! Food was amazing! We will definitely be going back.
Yep. Came here with friends right after smoki
Michael our waiter was awesome. Food was great
Outstanding experience. Food, drinks, and service were excellent. Fun place however music is a bit too loud.
Always a great experience. The service, ambiance, and food are outstanding.
The food was great, however the outside seating took away from the overall experience.
Top notch worst food that I came across in Asian cuisines so far, not even a remote cuisine in remote place was as pathetic as this place. The chef really needs to work on his menu!!!! If they want to survive in food business!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. The atmosphere, food, and service are flawless. The restaurant is warm, intimate, and modern. A true elegant dining experience.
Our door dinning experience is way below the standard for a good restaurant. Cheap tables, no decoration.
We have eaten at Buddakan several times and have always enjoyed the fabulous food, the top shelf service and the modern, hip vibe of this huge restaurant. This time, instead of ordering separate entres and sharing them, we opted for the tasting menu III. WOW, WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!! This option gives everyone at your table a portion of multiple appetizers, entres and desserts. There was so much food, we stuffed ourselves and still left some. We loved trying so many different dishes that we wouldn’t have ordered and everything was delicious and beautifully presented. I would highly recommend the tasting menus as a splurge and can’t wait for our next trip to NYC to do it again.
It always an amazing experience from service to cocktails and food. Highly recommend for date night and groups.
Food, Service, atmosphere, ... Everything was great!
Amazing experience ,service,food,everything was great
