Birthday! Loved the food and the atmosphere and really glad I went
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
Birthday diner was exceptional
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.
This is our fav restaurant! We love everything about it! The food is always top notch with great presentation. Worth every penny. We go back as much as possible. The edamame dumplings and tartare egg rolls are to die for. Everything we have ever tried we loved. You cant go wrong here. All courses are excellent. The only thing my wife has an issue with is the stairs in high heels but thats a minor detail.
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.
Experience was awesome I will definitely be dining here again
The best place to impress out of town friends. Or anyone really.... Buddakan never disappoints
Oh I wanted to love this place. But, did not. Food wasn’t that good. Sorry, it wasn’t. Expected to be wowed by the reviews. Although the space is pretty, the nightclub vibe was off putting to me, from check in to getting our coat. Maybe should have researched that more. Not an enjoyable meal shouting at my date. But, it that is ok with you, you will love it.
It was my wife birthday the food was great atmosphere was great would go again
Always a fantastic experience!
Absolutely fantastic! Superb venue, absolutely brilliant vibe and the food was tremendous! Best steak I have EVER had - steak was literally melt in your mouth!
Food was amazing! I was the only person in our party who had been to Buddakan before, so it was quite the adventure for my friends! They loved every bite and are still talking about it today!
We were lucky to be seated in the main dining room which was a treat since I was bringing three friends who were new to Buddakan. The ambiance is like no other restaurant in NYC. From the excellent service, to the fantastic food...we loved every minute. A few of our favorite menu items are the cauliflower pops, the braised short ribs, the spring rolls, the crispy shrimp and the lamb. If you want a fantastic dining experience that just screams NYC, check out Buddakan. I know we will all be back!
Very good meal! We went on Valentines day and the restaurant was full and vibrating! We were very good served and the food was great.
Excellent service and delicious food.
Dining area looks fantastic inside. It is surprisingly huge inside compared to what it looks like outside. Food was great and the staff was extremely attentive. Would definitely go again.
Disappointing food but great service.
Loved this restaurant! Very cool atmosphere. The food was AMAZING! The restaurant itself is very original and has a very romantic vibe.
I was hoping for a better view than being put in the back and not the main floor which is extremely beautiful. Something I requested on um reservations. Besides that it’s a great place to eat.
Ate food. Was good. Ty ty.
The design of the restaurant is absolutely beautiful. I’ve been going there since they opened.
The food once went bad for a while and now it’s back the way it was, yes it’s really good. The dim sum appetizer, about $40 for 2 is a must! Unless you are vegetarian. I love the shrimp and lobster chow fun is wonderful.
Good teas, cocktails and wines as well.
I love the dessert called CHOCOLATE PISTACHIO CREMOSO. It’s a sophisticated ice cream dessert.
You don’t have to wear a suit at all, but dress nice. It’s perfect date spot. Do not bring kids. You will be annoying to everyone there !
Phenomenal start to finish! One of the few restaurants in Manhattan that has consistently excellent food and service over a decade!
Very good and inventive Chinese cuisine. Excellent Monkfish dish.
One of the best restaurants i have ever been to! Fantastic food, wonderful service and amazing cocktails 🍸
