The food and service here are both impeccable.
Buddakan was great but the location we sat in the lights was EXTREMELY low my guest had to use our phone lights to see the menu.
We had an amazing time at Buddakan, the food and wine were phenomenal and our server was just the best. The server was very attentive and thoughtful. Can't wait to eat here again soon!
Excellent all around
My daughter got engaged!! Big celebration😀
Awesome food and service - will definitely be back!
We were disappointed about the main courses and especially the lobster fried rice. tasted like bland white rice with tiny pieces of lobster.
Food wasn’t not as good as expected
This restaurant is never a disappointment. The food is always delicious and fresh. Can’t wait to be back.
It was a little too loud, I was hoping for more menu options like the AC location
Natalie was our server she was amazing. The whole staff was beyond accommodating! Great staff truly.
We had a great experience. Food was unique and yummy. Vibe was fun
I am never disappointed when I dine here excellent service
Had a very nice dinner at Buddakan. Food was very good, similar to other upscale Asian fusion restaurants. Very nice ambience, liked the music and space was open. The main courses come with nothing so you have to order rice and vegetables a la carte. This makes it a little extra expensive. Our server was very knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. Overall a very good experience. I would go back.
I was just there for husband suprise bday dinner and we had a great time. Food was delicious, price was fair (way less than expected) & the atmosphere was very chill. Loved it. I just wish the servers were bit more friendly. But overall o would recommend 👌
Faboulus experience in every way…the atmosphere, food, service, music…I was in awe…excellent and unique
Beautiful Ambience especially for a romantic birthday dinner. the food was lovely and drinks even better!
Birthday dinner and asked for the table on the main room. And it was honored.
Amazing food stunning surrounding. We went all out and ordered 5 main dishes. Devoured everything. Wine was good. Hope to. One back again. We came from Sedona Arizona
We did the $90 tasting menu. It was a great way to try out most of the dinner menu. Overall, the food was tasty though a few dishes felt like they could use a bit more seasoning. Dim Sum was amazing and the Black Cod dish was delicious! I would return and do a la carte focusing on the dishes we loved and heavy on the dim sum. I've been for their dim sum happy hour as well and would return for that too!
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
The waiter was very personable and very accommodating of numerous dietary restrictions. With that said, the service was not so good. We had to ask on multiple occasions for items we ordered because they did not come out when they were supposed to. For example, we ordered 3 of the same appetizers and we first got 2 and then some time later we got the third. Same with beverages: we ordered 3 beverages and 2 came out and we had to ask multiple times for the third to come out.
The quality of drinks was outstanding but I cannot say the same for the food. Again, items were often cold due to delayed arrival to the table or simply lacked in flavor. For example, one member ordered a vegetarian lo mein dish which simply consisted of stir fried noodles with flavorless boiled vegetables on top.
In terms of ambiance, we were seated outdoors which is not even close to being comparable to the indoor ambiance. I would not recommend seating outdoors for anything but a fast casual dining experience. Buddakan could've done better with their outdoor dining ambiance.
All in all this experience at Buddakan for my friends birthday was moderate. In fairness, we were a group of 8 so they were juggling a lot of menu items though that should not be justification for poor service and moderate quality food.
Excellent food and great ambiance!
The food was good but the service was really poor.
