Buddakan - Philadelphia
First time dining at Buddakan. Chose it to entertain relatives visiting town. While experience was fantastic. Service was great, menu outstanding and food exceeded our expectations.
I love it... going back for my college reunion in March of this year!!
Food was very good and wait staff was attentive. Personally, I found it a bit loud and dark. Otherwise I would give it a 5.
Food is amazing! Service is wonderful! Will be returning in the near future!
Everything we ordered was fantastic! Best food !
Late valentines dinner
Did a sample tasting and it was a great way to try different things. Food was good and service was great.
Buddakan is one of my favorite restaurants. There is a lively atmosphere, but, if you are looking for a quiet dinner, this may not be the best place. The Dim Sum Sampler and Wasabi Tuna Tataki are worth going for.
Food was good as always but the restaurant was so crowded there was no where to stand to have a drink.
The restaurant was a little crowded so we didn’t have the best table but that’s to be expected given the holiday weekend. The best part of the meal was the pork buns and the attentiveness of our server Ann. She was very accommodating and gave good sake suggestions to my husband. (Even though he’s not a sake drinker :-))
It was a lovely evening albeit a little crowded. We will definitely return.
We had a great meal. Buddakan never disappoints. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. Couldn’t have asked for a better meal.
Wonderfully delicious food and cocktails. Service was fantastic. Only downside was we were seated in a high traffic area next to the bar and restrooms.
One of the best places in downtown for dine with friends/family/colleagues
Delicious, great cocktails, excellent service
Food very good
Great for special occasion
Food was amazing costumer service could’ve been better
The most enjoyable evening. Food was phenomenal. Best ever. I was so impressed.
I had an amazing time. The food was amazing the service was awesome. Great Valentines Day!
Fell well below expectations.. My party found it to be completely overpriced food for below average food of its kind in return.. Truly the only thing special is the atmosphere.. Certainly the prices on the menu are not justified by food, portion size or service.. Poor Value...
It Was A Wonderful Valentine Dinner Experience. Everything Was Perfect. Buddakan Has Become a Favorite for Us.
Food was outstanding as usual.
Great place to eat , great atmosphere. Highly recommend
As usual, everything was great!
Great food. Great service.
This is the second time I have eaten at Buddakan and it did not dissapoint! This meal was honestly what I was most looking forward to during my work trip to Philly. The edamame dumplings were outstanding and the broth with it was delicious. The pork belly steamed buns were so tender and full of flavor. The eggplant was also really good. My only criticism would be a different variety of desserts, but that is solely based on preference and not quality. Overall, I can't wait to go back to Philly so I can eat here again.
Lovely time! Fantastic service and a relaxing atmosphere.
We go there for Chinese New Year every year and love it! We are never disappointed
Really crowded which is fine for a Saturday night but I had a reservation at 9 and got seated at 940.. watched people walk in and get a table right away. One patron in particular just slipped the hostess a 20 and asked to be seated and immediately was. food was all over salted and rushed. I could tell they were just trying to move tables quickly to try to get everyone seated. This was a birthday celebration for my girlfriend and her first time here. She said she never wants to go back. I don't like to write negative reviews but this is just how I truly felt about this venue on this day.
everything was great. pricing is very fair, portions were more than adequate. ambiance was great as always.
Everything was great
Best place for u and ur mate to enjoy y’all time with each other 👍🏾
Specialty Cocktail Menu somewhat different from Buddakan Atlantic City, NJ which was disappointing. Food quality seemed to be lower than Buddakan Atlantic City, NJ which was also disappointing. Buddakan should be the same experience in all Its locations: Philadelphia, Atlantic City, New York City, etc. Consistency is what makes a great restaurant and dining experience. Buddakan Philadelphia and Atlantic City need to compare notes.
the waitress seemed annoyed with us but otherwise perfect.
Buddakan is always one of my favorite restaurants to take colleagues to when they visit Philadelphia from out of town. During my last visit, I had to colleagues with me from Houston and neither of them had ever been. Watching their faces when they took their first bite of the Chilean Sea Bass made me so happy. They couldn't stop talking about it the next day. Love Love Love this place!
Amazing Asian fusion, roasted edamame, the whole duck and lobster egg rolls are tremendous.
i travel the world and eat in some of the top restaurants....For the price verses food quality, i thought this meal was horrible.....Plain brown rice in a bowl was $25....
Fun night out for dinner, our server was out of this world! Having a 4 yo in our group didn’t slownher down! She was very attentive to food he would like as well as drinks. The food was ordered and delivered beautifully.
The one and only thing that did not sit well with me was the attitude of the hostesses. Other than that the night was amazing.
Food was excellent. Service was good. Ambiance was a little noisy. Overall pleasant. Will return.
