It was lovely and bigger than I expected. Oxtail dumplings are a tasty surprise.

It was for an early father's day dinner. My dad is someone who isn't big into dining out. Either the food is too salty or not seasoned to his liking or it's too dirty. Let's just say he ordered not one but two sea bass which he finished on his own. I find that an accomplishment seeing as he doesn't eat much. We all enjoyed it and was well worth it. Looking forward to dining there again.

I haven't been to the NYC Buddakan in ages and wondered if it was as good as I remembered and it was! There were 4 of us and we had the tasting menu, which I highly recommend. The food just kept coming and each dish was more delish than the next.

The only complaint I have is that it does get really noisy in there, but that has always been the case. A great place to go to celebrate a special event.

I came for my birthday dinner with my family. We all have at least one dietary restriction each and it can often be very hard to find food for all of us. The waiter was very accommodating and helpful with the menu. He found multiple different options that were vegan, gluten free and dairy free for each member of the dinner. We all had more than enough food and everything was great! Even after deciding not to get any dessert the waiter brought out a dessert for my birthday that was gluten free, dairy free and vegan so we could all split the dessert. I really appreciated this as he easily could’ve just given us a dessert that only worked for one of us or no dessert at all but instead made sure to find something we could all eat. Overall a great experience and I would definitely recommend for a special occasion and groups with different dietary restrictions.

I've been to Buddakan a few times, and once again, it didn't disappoint. I enjoyed the food, the wine was excellent! I always wish to go here with a big group to be able to try more dishes, but I'll go with just 2 people cause I love this place!!

I requested a downstairs table weeks in advance for a Sunday evening but the restaurant didn’t accommodate. They put candles in a dessert for a birthday celebration but put the candles in the wrong dessert! In fact we had to ask about the birthday boys dessert as it didn’t come out. They did take the dessert off the tab.

As far as service and atmosphere a 10, but I thought is was very pricey and the food wasn't as good as I expected it to be. I feel the Peking Duck was a bit dry on some of the pieces. The lobster fried rice was a bit fishy tasting. The spring rolls and pork belly buns were excellent, but take a pass on the short rib and scallion pancake. Didn't bother with dessert, but drinks were good.

Absolutely lovely , I will definitely return next time I'm in N.Y. it was a little pricey but I expected as much. The music got pretty loud that we only spoke to the person beside us instead of everyone at the table but I liked the music so its a preference I guess. We had a great server that was really nice and patient with my friends who had drinks before we got there .
