    The host wasn't friendly. We felt rushed in and out because we had teenagers with us. Food either had too much spice or not enough, or it wasn't quite right.

    We really enjoyed our experience and were delighted to sit at the iconic long table downstairs. Our service was excellent. My only complaint is the portions of the dishes were quite small (except for the pork lo mein and desserts). Our party of four opted for the $90 prix fixe menu, and I didn’t feel it was nearly enough for four people.

    We had the $100 per head tasting menu and most of the dishes were very good. I dont think any of our party of 9 was very keen on the green dumplings. The service though felt very rushed and a bit aggressive in the manner that plates were put down or taken away. It certainly didn't have the feel of fine dining service which it should have done at that price per head. We felt that they wanted us to eat as quickly as possible to clear the table for the next seating. We were sat in one of the alcoves which I thought was disappointing initially but actually the main hall was extremely noisy so it turned out to be the better place to be.

    Food was excellent and service at the table was friendly, helpful and efficient as we were on a time crunch. Unfortunately the greeting at the front door was unfriendly and we were escorted to the top level and far back of the restaurant where there was not a single other diner. We had to walk past several empty rooms to get there. It was not pleasant and felt awkward but we asked to move downstairs and they did accommodate where we had a delicious meal and one of my favorite lychee martinis of all time. Overall, definitely do recommend.

    Been coming here for a while, but just tried the tuna tartar rolls and the pea sprout salad. OMG - both were incredibly delicious! The flavor profiles for both appetizers were through the roof! It made my favorite app, the lobster roll, seem a bit less exciting. Overall, the food is excellent. The environment is very loud, but the food and service are outstanding.

The service was fantastic, with a friendly and well informed waiter. He made suggestions based on my preferences and was helpful throughout the night. The food was delicious and the options on the menu were great.

    One of the most memorable meals we’ve had in the last 20 years. We trusted our server Alex to make the food selections for us and he did not disappoint. I think my favorite was the tuna tartare! The ambiance was perfect and the bill surprisingly reasonable for such a decadent meal. Would absolutely recommend. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Fantastic experience at Buddakan. We were especially impressed with how they handled our son’s allergies. He has a nut/ dairy/ egg and sesame allergy. The head chef came to the table to explain what he could/ couldn’t have from the menu ( he had also gone to the trouble of highlighting what dishes could be modified to accommodate his allergies). As anyone who suffers with food allergies knows, this kind of service is rare and extremely appreciated. The meal was delicious, the service excellent and we had a wonderful evening. Thank you Buddakan.

    The waiter was not very attentive and friendly. My guest and I noticed that he was more attentive and friendly to the other patrons a few tables away from us. The food and ambiance great. However, due to the subpar service, I doubted that I will return. One of my friends had alerted the waiter that it was my birthday and asked for a candle to be added to my dessert . The gentleman didn’t even wish me a happy birthday. In addition to not wishing me a happy birthday, he didn’t advise his colleagues of who the dessert was for. When a staff member arrived with the dessert, he had to ask us who the dessert was for. There are other things that didn’t make my guest and I feel welcomed and left us disappointed in the service. A restaurant of this caliber should not have lackluster service.

Alex was attentive and just overall really kind and right there when we needed anything. The food was good but the service was excellent and for that reason alone I’d go back to buddakan.
