Service was excellent, food was delicious and the restaurant is super cool
The food was good but the service was really poor.
Birthday celebration for friends from Switzerland-fabulous
The service at Buddakan was amazing! The staff was great and super friendly. The food was delicious! Will definitely be back.
Food was great per usual, but the server had too many tables and she was not able to attend us when needed, but she was nice and full of joy.
Loved dining at Buddakan. Great place to celebrate a special occasion. Food was absolutely delicious!
Great service and vibe
Terrific service, great ambiance and good food.
The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was great. The service could have been better as our waiter seemed to lose interest as soon as we ordered smaller bites.
Atmosphere was gorgeous !! Food was amazing! We will definitely be going back.
Yep. Came here with friends right after smoki
Michael our waiter was awesome. Food was great
Outstanding experience. Food, drinks, and service were excellent. Fun place however music is a bit too loud.
Always a great experience. The service, ambiance, and food are outstanding.
The food was great, however the outside seating took away from the overall experience.
Top notch worst food that I came across in Asian cuisines so far, not even a remote cuisine in remote place was as pathetic as this place. The chef really needs to work on his menu!!!! If they want to survive in food business!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. The atmosphere, food, and service are flawless. The restaurant is warm, intimate, and modern. A true elegant dining experience.
Our door dinning experience is way below the standard for a good restaurant. Cheap tables, no decoration.
We have eaten at Buddakan several times and have always enjoyed the fabulous food, the top shelf service and the modern, hip vibe of this huge restaurant. This time, instead of ordering separate entres and sharing them, we opted for the tasting menu III. WOW, WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!! This option gives everyone at your table a portion of multiple appetizers, entres and desserts. There was so much food, we stuffed ourselves and still left some. We loved trying so many different dishes that we wouldn’t have ordered and everything was delicious and beautifully presented. I would highly recommend the tasting menus as a splurge and can’t wait for our next trip to NYC to do it again.
It always an amazing experience from service to cocktails and food. Highly recommend for date night and groups.
Food, Service, atmosphere, ... Everything was great!
Amazing experience ,service,food,everything was great
There are plenty of swanky restaurants in New York, but few that also provide amazing food along with the posh feels. Buddakan never disappoints! Our server was so great and recommended dishes with polish and knowledge. I wish I caught her name but we were having too much fun! We return there every time we are in NYC!!
Great food and vibe but horrible service by John. Won't be visiting for a while.
Loved this place!!
Excellent service and food. Our server, Tanya, was fantastic.
This place is overrated. The service was fantastic, but the food sucked! I had 3 appetizers (ribs, oxtail dumplings, General Tso Dumplings) and two entrees (Lamb Chops and Cod). All were absent of flavor.
We did Tasting Menu IV with four people. The food was phenomenal and the portion sizes were very large. Service and ambience were perfect.
Atmosphere unmatched. Food amazing.
My favorite place recently. The duck, salmon dumplings, short rib pancakes, lobster fried rice, bao buns, lobster rolls and mochi donuts are my fav <3
Kenny was amazing!!!
Food and service were excellent. We were in the new outdoor seating area which does not have the same ambience as the restaurant inside, but fortunately the outdoor seating accommodated my last minute reservation. Will definitely go again when in New York and also recommend to others.
Food was awesome. Almost all of there meals are cooked in oyster sauce which is a bummer. The service was a bit lacking. Our server disappeared for extended periods of time. The oxtail dumplings used to be better. It took a long time for my appetizer to arrive.
It's concisely a fun time - good food, really attentive service (which is impressive given the size and scale), and active. After a bit, the dark lighting and noise got to be a bit much and we needed to get outside. But always happy to be there.
We went to have an anniversary dinner, wonderful staff the food was delicious and you definitely get what you pay for. Will be coming back soon !
Fabulous. As always. Food. Drinks. Service. Ambiance.
Don’t think twice.
Go there and you will understand 😉
fun, exciting cool atmosphere and staff…. amazing food and wine.
Ambience was pretty nice - the food was pathetic . Haven’t had such a bad experience with the food for while . Heavily priced . Won’t recommend this place to anyone
Great ambience and delicious food!
We heard about this place through a friend and thought of giving it a try. Even before getting there we thought there was some kind of club or party with lots of hous-y music coming out.
Drinks and food were great and the vibe and ambience were on point. Perfect for a night out or a small celebration
