I had to send back my martini. Tasted like water. Ordered a second one. Tasted like water. Tuna tartar spring rolls were tiny and flavorless. Shanghai Lobster was excellent. Service was great. Asian-fusion dining has run its course.
We opted to dine outdoors. It's was perfect every felt safe. The food was the highlight. We definitely has all the dumplings.
Overall, I would give it 4 stars out of 5.
David was outstanding!
Comfortable booth, delicious BBQ pork tenderloin, lobster springrolls is a must!
Great food, great drinks, great service and very covid aware. Top notch
Amazing food and service!
EXCELLENT meal! We took our server’s recommendations and ordered two of his top dishes! The peking duck (served 2) and the steak.
Both meals were delicious! The duck was the best I’ve ever had! The steak was perfectly prepared and as tender as it could be.
To top it all off we had the most amazing desserts: a combination of 3 sorbets - all delicious - not too sweet, great textures, not heavy at all; and a chocolate dessert topped with edible gold shavings!
We can’t wait to go back!
Awesome experience. Great service. Delicious food.
Restaurant was excellent, food was good and great atmosphere. Our waiter was extremely rude and short with us so I wouldn’t recommend this place to a friend.
Food and service was goid as all ways
Had a great experience! The shrimp bao buns and pork rib appetizers were amazing, we even took orders to go!
The dumplings and the duck were amazing. Cool atmosphere and we had the best waitress.
Everything is always perfect when I go. My staple meal is the lamb which is #1 in our region that I’ve tasted.
Very elegant, upscale, and the good /service was both remarkable!
My boyfriend and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary at Buddakan - our first time there! We enjoyed every second of it! The food was ABSOLUTELY amazing — we started with the dim sum sampler, then tried a few of their entrees: Char Aged Beef, Smoked Ribs, and Chicken Pad Thai. We finished with one of the most unique Creme brûlée’s! Thank you to our server, Edward, for the constant attention to make sure our night was nothing short of perfect. We look forward to coming back!
Great food and service
We celebrated a birthday and a graduation.
Amazing!!!!! Food was great
Very pleasant food was delicious service was spectacular.
It was my birthday, no special acknowledgment
This was our first time dining indoors since the beginning of the pandemic. We felt very comfortable and it was a great experience going back to one of our favorite restaurants. Joe our server was great.
Great outdoor spot, very safe and intimate booths built out.
Delicious food and exceptional service!
Edward was the best. We had the whole second floor to ourselves and he made sure all our needs were met. Very tentative waiter. The food and drinks were excellent!
Food was great. Friendly and knowledgeable wait staff.
Fabulous food. We dined outside. The Mushroom Potstickers and Black Pepper Beef were delicious. The Creme Brûlée was yummy. Great evening.
Food was good. Service was very good. Design of restaurant is cool.
Amazing food , service , and company . I couldn’t have asked for a better evening .
Buddakan's outdoor dining experience was incredible, safe and delicious. We were amazed as how wonderfully Stephen Starr and his team adapted to the pandemic restrictions.
We brought our teenagers with us for the first time and one is a picky eater. They went out of their way to make sure that he had dishes that he wanted to eat. My other child loved her food as well.
Overall experience was delightful from waiter service down to dessert, great for date night or girls night out...etc
My friends and I dined here over the weekend to celebrate her 23rd birthday and everything was absolutely fabulous! Although it was pretty cold and our heater kept going out, our waiter was amazing. He constantly came to check on us and did everything he could to keep us warm. He accommodated my friend with her food allergies and did the best he could to make sure she enjoyed the experience. He sang beautifully to my friend for her birthday and gave us a great time! We had a wonderful night and most of it was because of our waiter. I can’t remember his name but His partner does the drinks & he said i reminded him of his idol...he’ll remember us! <3
Great date! It was my boyfriend’s birthday. Edward was our server. He was awesome and made our experience fantastic! He was super knowledgeable about the drinks and menu and made our desserts extra special with sparklers to celebrate. We’ve been here a bunch of times before! The ambiance was great and we felt safe and spread out from the other surrounding tables. Our fav items are the general tsos soup dumplings, the cashew chicken, crab fried rice, and the wasabi mashed! The dessert donuts were recommended to us as well and they’re a must have! We’ll definitely be coming back soon! Huge thanks to Edward and the buddakan staff for making it a great experience!
Food and atmosphere was excellent. My waiter was super nice and patience.
Every visit to Buddakan will have food that is absolutely delicious. For the first time in many visits, we had sub-par service (first visit post pandemic) which was disappointing for such a high-end establishment. Maybe understaffed - who knows? A vegetarian dish came with no accompanying rice so we ordered a bowl that never arrived. Finally just asked for a box to pack the dish and take it home. When the bill came, the server said "I didn't charge you for the rice" - ummm, thanks so much!
Still, it remains an all time Philly favorite - Enjoy!
Amazing experience! Food was everything!
It was amazing service was fast in food was fantastic
The overall experience was good. The drinks and food were good however I do feel like the lobster fried rice that I ordered could have been a little more seasoned.
I wish they would open a location in DC. I actually make the drive to eat here. Amazing dumplings.
Great experience as always. The waitress was very helpful as one of the guest has a shellfish allergy. The team was very transparent on what could be substituted and what other options we had in stead of shellfish
Birthday dinner. Service could of been better.
