    Service and good good. We sat on the main floor on the servers’ interstate Highway. Servers literally running past is was distracting and annoying.

    I always enjoy coming here for early Saturday evening dinner. It's quiet and not hectic. Food comes out quickly. This was my guests first visit. He was very impressed with the menu. We shared several dishes but my favorite is the Monkfish. Always very good!! Coffee was excellent also. 👍

    Food does not come out as a group but it comes out as soon as it’s cooked. (Guests were already done eating before other plates arrived). Very pricey for the quality/flavoring of the food. Music was loud, but it was good.

    I loved the place. However, the check-in process was a huge DOWNFALL, I checked-in with my whole party there and was told to look for somewhere to sit while I wait. I did so, about 30mins passed and my aunt went to check up on the status and they NEVER checked us in. So that was a bit annoying. But our waiter Richard, WAS NOTHING LESS THAN AMAZING. He deserves 10+ stars... Lols! Food and drinks were amazing.

    The ambience and food was amazing. However, the service was questionable. Several times we received the wrong food and drinks. Our server wasn’t available every time we wanted to order a drink. This is just a one off. So I would still recommend.

    Very disappointed. I made a reservation for Saturday at 5:15 PM and they made me wait for 15 minutes. The food came very quickly but it wasn't hot enough, it was more on the cold warm side. The food was definitely not worthy at its price.

    The food, the ambiance here, and the service were just incredible. We had the Crispy Cauliflower Lollipops, General Tso’s Dumplings, Glazed Alaskan Black Cod, Broken Chili Chicken, vegetable fried rice, and Macao Rice Noodles. It's a great place to eat with a group of people so you can share a bit of everything. Every single thing we ate, was perfection. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who loves food and wants a wonderful culinary experience.

    A factory, not able to keep up with the volume of people they seat. The staff is overwhelmed, food all came out cold, 20 minutes to bring a glass of wine. So sad. I have been to this restaurant 100 times and now they seem to have lost the quality through their greed.

    My Fiancé took me here for my birthday, and everything was absolutely beautiful. The place was so magical, the staff super friendly, and the food was otherworldly. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want full 5 star experience. Perfect place for dates, girls night out, to ask your girlfriend for her hand in marriage (hehe), and birthdays.

    What happened to Buddakan? I remember it being gorgeous and ambience looking spectacular a few years ago. This past Saturday it was way too dark, couldn’t see nice outfits or people well, nor the beautiful designs of the restaurant we so much love. Way too dark and we heard other people saying the same. Kind of like a clubby vibe. Do not compete with Tao or copy. You’re better! Had not been back in some time and it is hard to want to go back to a place I couldn’t tell what it was anymore. Those lights were not moonlight just dark and not deemed properly for ambience. Please do something to change it. There will always be enough new people to want to go there but we want to be back for the years to come.

    Always always a worthwhile trip, pricey yes, but worth it. Service top notch, food delicious. Drinks not overbearing but well made.
