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.
We loved it!
Food was fantastic- service just as good. Had a great dinner!
Buddakan has become a go-to place when we want an amazing meal and want to expose our friends to the experience. We have yet to have anything on the menu that we haven't liked and this last visit tried the Tasting Menu which was OUTSTANDING!!!
Shout out to Cali our waitress who we have had before and knows her stuff. Can't wait to go back!!!!
Been quite a few times- this time felt a bit rushed, but overall still enjoyed the unique dining experience.
Great good and atmosphere. Was celebrating a friends birthday and it was his first time in NYC.
Our waiter Joshua was great! He took his time to explain the vegetarian options for my wife and was very attentive throughout our dinner.
Fantastic food. Fantastic service. Fantastic experience.
Love this place. Food is great. Will return many times in the future.
Buddakan is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. It is a spectacular setting and ambiance. Definitely the right place for a special event. Food is very good and the service was outstanding. Recommend the edamame dumplings and shrimp. Can't wait to go again!
I was celebrating my fiancé birthday and we loved it.
Got there on time and they made us wait over 30 mins, I asked when we would get our table and their condisendant answer was that an eagles were paying and that they would be with us shortlyX after 45 mins we decided to get one of the tables near the bar that didn’t require a reservation. Never going back
They took a while to seat us even with a reservation but was absolutely beautiful! Not a bad dish on the menu!
The food is excellent, the scene is outstanding.
However, we waited for 45 minutes to be seated despite our reservation. I find this to be particularly annoying, as it ruins part of the experience
Food and space were amazing. A little late getting us to our table versus our reservation time, but service was great once we were seated. Very noisy, but that’s part of the experience. Would definitely go back.
My birthday dinner part of 5 was fantastic at Buddakan. Warm friendly service. Delicious food. Thank you for a memorable evening. 🎉
Perfect! The food was behind expectations
Great food and excellent service!
Overall was a great experience, beautiful place, great service
But the appetizers are lacking of taste, we only like the lollipop
Drinks are not impressive, just fruit juice blend with little alcohol
Main dishes are really good
Desert is ok
Jordan was absolutely fantastic!
It just amazing from A-z
This it’s a true hidden gem...
You would never believe the whole bunker that is embedded below Chelsea market...
when i went in i saw that beautiful bar area and thought that was the whole restaurant but then you go inside and around and down the stairs to see the full open area with an incredible super kind table for forty people in the center and it just keeps going.
The ambiance is si very cool.
And the food is amazing, we had the tuna tratar rolls, spare ribs, lobster rice (not the best), three of Raúl dumplings(definitely the best), grilled sliced filler mignon with an incredible sauce, and the monkey bread desert...
All was fit for a king ... ❤️ this place and definitely will go back lots and lots
Food is always delicious at Buddakan. Never fails!
Our waitress Allison provided us with a most excellent dining experience. We also had the pleasure of meeting Chef Brain Ray and his staff in the kitchen. The food was excellent we especially enjoyed the smoked Branzino this is a restaurant we will definitely be revisiting!
Beautiful restaurant with great service. Food was very good. It’s a bit pricey but for a special occasion worth the visit. The only negative I would note is it’s extremely noisy/loud downstairs.
Great place, super food! To recommend to our friends un Belgium!
Expensive but worth every penny. Outstanding food. Lighting too dim, but otherwise fabulous.
It was mother’s birthday. It was perfect. The waiter was amazing from start to finish.
Every year it gets worse! The food was like eating fast food, the ambience was like a diner and the price was through the roof.
Was just fantastic. my guests loved it! tasting food was great
Love the vibe here, and the food is top notch!
Noisy very dark needed phone to see menus food really poor
Party of 10. Seating wasn’t ideal - they had six of the group on a bench on a wall with the other 4 of us in chairs on the opposite side. Made it very difficult to get out to go to bathroom. We did move one person to end of he table and asked for another chair which they did bring us as there was no way 6 average adults would have fit on that bench. Service was amazing for the most part. From our server definitely. Some of the waitstaff who came in between to swap our courses/plates-silverware etc were not the friendliest and seemed a little aggravated to be waiting tables but we were celebrating and didn’t let it get to us. Did the Premium Tasting menu and everything was delicious. Definitely recommend and can’t wait to visit again.
Excellent food in a beautiful setting. Highly recommended.
Everything was delicious, we had a great time. Our server was amazing.
Food took forever to
Loved the vibe. Lovely ambience. The bar staff were amazing, they were so helpful. The food was absolutely delicious.. I would go back again and highly recommend
Had to wait for a table for about an hour after our reservation time. When we finally got seated, the table was set for 5, our reservation was for 6 people. Left us standing in the middle of the restaurant for a bit too long trying to rectify. We sat ourselves down and grabbed the small table next to us that originally we were told we couldn't have.
The food was good but be prepared to spend a lot of money and the noise level is way too loud. They could at least turn the music down a bit.
Had heard such great things about this restaurant but personally was a bit disappointed and would not return.
Amazing!! A must if you’re visiting NYC!!
We loved this restaurant. The food was outstanding and the ambiance was exactly what we would expect in NYC.
