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.

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

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 !

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!

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.

Lamb Chops
Lobster Fries Rice
Mixed greens stir fried

Yuuuummmmmmmyyyyy

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!!!
