Dumplings and appetizers very good. Main courses did not live up to expectations (shrimp/scallop: too creamy; pork noodles: little spice and flavor), but we saw very nice alternatives in the table nearby. Hostesses and reception very kind and attentive. Will try it again.
Kevin was the most amazing waiter ever. Food was phenomenal especially the dumplings and sushi rolls.
As usual, always excellent food, service, and atmosphere. Until the next time!
The reception desk was warm and welcoming and the bar was very nice. The restaurant was stylish and the waiter was very helpful and attentive.
Food was very good and the waiter offered very good advice of what we should order and the whole experience was great.
We have been here a number of times, and it never disappoints. It is always a special meal.
We were a group of six and were seated on a table for 5. This always happens at this restaurant - for a big restaurant one shouldn’t be crammed for space on the table
The ambience is tier one. It’s like a scene out of a movie. The server paid attention to detail and everything was exquisite!
Amazing!! Very chic, amazing steak and cod. Amazing oxtail dumplings. Will return !!
Suberb Ambiance. Chips amounts of Energy. Tremendous taste. Appropriately sized portions. Definite must go
Since it was a birthday dinner, we didn’t mind spending some money on a great dinner. However, if you’re looking for a extensive meal for a good price, Buddakan is not the place to be. We did enjoy the experience and our waitress was very friendly and willing to guide us through the different courses. We thought it was a little pity that we were put in a corner - read completely at the back of the restaurant - although we mentioned it was the birthday of two of the party. We would have loved to sit at the large table as a little plus, but no hard feelings, however :)
We brought our daughters to nyc for the night and Buddakan was definitely a great choice ! The service was great and they were very accommodating for my food allergies and for my 6 year olds and their picky tastes. The ambiance was amazing and the food delicious. We will definitely be back soon - thanks to Cory - best waiter ever !
Amazing! I have visited this restaurant in Philadelphia but the NYC location had a completely different menu and the food was absolutely outstanding.
Fantastic food, very good service and reasonable prices
Wonderful meal - our server was so patient and kind. Checking in could have been friendlier, but it was nice to have tables and seats for us to sit in while we waited for the table to be prepared. Food was excellent and music was the perfect level. Thank you for a lovely time!
Great service. Food was excellent. This restaurant never disappoints. Waitress hagood suggestions
We were given a gift e-card during the holidays. Finally, we had a chance to pick a Starr Restaurant and Buddakan NYC won our choice based on the food variety offered and the on line pics and reviews. We were not disappointed at all. Waitress explained the family style serving and also was very well versed in the menu items.
Dim Sun for two
Lobster Fries Rice
Mixed greens stir fried
Would definitely go back.
4th or 5th time for us.
Wait staff is incredible. Even i couldn’t tell they probably didn’t like me...for is stellar...only word that comes to mind...
If you’ve never been there before...take a walk around and be amazed at all the very different dining areas...
Only thing i would do is play different background music. Just my personal taste...
Always look forward to “The” experience ...NEVER disappointed!!!
I had high expectations since I was recomended by serveral persons to go here. It was not up to my expectations. The seats we got was Cold, loud and not that great food. We went on sunday lunch, might be better at evening.
The food never disappoints! Best sea bass in all of NYC! The portions are for sharing and there is always enough for a to go bag! Great ambiance and the lighting makes for a perfect setting.
