It was a great evening. The service was great and ambience.
Great food well served. Always enjoy dining there.
Always great. Service was excellent and food was good as usual.
I was very disappointed with the crowded conditions at Buddakan, in light of COVID. The tables in the dining area were entirely too close together. The strategic removal of a few tables would have created a much more comfortable dining experience. I was also surprised that the wait staff were not wearing masks.
I know restaurants lost a lot of money, due to the pandemic, and are striving to get back on track financially; however, this effort should be made responsibly and not in a manner that puts the health and well being of patrons at risk.
This was our second trip here. The atmosphere is great, though it is quite loud even for a weekday. The food is great especially the appetizers. Get the dim sum! The entrees are good, but I would not say worth the price. Wish there was more drink options, feel like they are lacking in that area. Lastly, the tables are quite close to each other and can hear everything the table next to us is saying. We will be back, but there is certainly room for improvement.
Our server didn’t know we were celebrating a birthday so I had to ask him for the dessert, other than that food was great, ambiance was great, hostess and other staff members were really friendly.
We chose outdoor for safety and table and chairs were rickety and uncomfortable. It was really warm and we had to request fans to be turned on, there were also little biting flies swarming us so overall not a fine dining experience at all. Our waitress seemed tired and overworked, just overall not what I am used to from this restaurant.
Awesome as always!
Edamame dumplings were to die for! Great spot to split a copious amount of things, mostly because you can't decide on one! Loved the sparkler for the birthday dessert as well. Great special touch.
We ate outside in an isolated table with a fan. Service was great, food was, as always, fabulous. Love this restaurant!!
It was our first time there for all 5 of us and we LOVED it! We will be back for sure.....a great experience for all.
Fantastic service and the food was delicious
Our waitress was great
Really knowledgeable waitress- guided us on quantity as well as her personal favorites. Edamame dumplings were delicious- Peking duck was also a standout, as was the kimchee fried rice. Dining outside was great, separate booths with fans were very cool.
Awesome atmosphere!! Great food!! Server just forgot our second round of drinks until we were almost done.
Everything was so delicious!! The tuna pizza never dissapoints. seabass is perfection. The waitress was so kind and attentive.
We were on a weekend vacation and were excited to try Buddakan. We had to make some last minute adjustments to our reservation and the restaurant was very accommodating. The restaurant had dim lighting but the ambiance was good. There was a buzz and it was perfect for a date night. We had the lobster egg rolls, Szechwan dumplings, lamb chops and short ribs. All of the food was fantastic and there were very large portions. Service was good and our waiter was attentive. We were very happy with the meal and will defiantly return.
Scrumptious food and outstanding service. Can’t wait to go back!
This was not my first visit to Buddakan, but it was my first time dining there post covid and it will be a while before I go back again.
I took two friends who were visiting from out of town, and while we had a good meal, it wasn’t as good as I’ve come to expect from this restaurant. We ordered a bunch of dim sum, the crab fried rice and eggplant. The only thing we ordered that I wasn’t thrilled with were the lobster egg rolls.
We were there on a busy Saturday night, and the people watching was on point. It also seemed like every table was celebrating something, as we felt like we were the only table that didn’t have receive a sparkler laden dessert. Our table was also up against a small walkway and packed in to the dining room and we constantly had people bumping into our chairs the entire meal. We also sat for 20 minutes before our waiter picked up our cards/check only to have him return 20 minutes later acknowledging that he had misplaced our bill/cards… not something you want to hear in a busy restaurant, particularly when you’ve previously been the victim of credit card fraud. Bottom line was that our bill paying process was over 45 minutes, and no real apology or visit from the manager.
As it was pouring outside when we went to leave, we decided that we would have one last drink at the bar before leaving. We were not impressed in the slightest with the attitude from the bar staff.
Disappointing experience. Food was good, but I’ve had better.
Ambiance was hip and sexy, just right for a dinner date before a concert. Service was exceptional, with delivery of our appetizers and food very quick after ordering. Tuna tartare spring rolls had delightful flavor. Loved the dim sum sampler. The sea bass entree was so flavorful and melted in my mouth. The evening special of steak was equally flavorful, tender, and mouth-watering. Drinks and cocktails complemented all so well! Definitely recommend!
Just hanging out with my granddaughter while she is home from college. Every month I take her to a different restaurant, she had never been to Buddakan. I love your Resturant I had a slight reaction to my meal. My meal was the lemon sesame chicken. Everything else was great as always.
We are regulars. Sat outside. Service and food were excellent.
What a great experience at Buddakan! Each course was delicious!
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will hope to return again soon!
It was amazing! Great service and amazing food. Kicking myself for not getting an order of dumplings to go!
The ambience was great, the service was fantastic. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu. We found some of the signature dishes to be lacking in amazingness. Overall, it's an above-average spot but did not live up to the hype. The edamame dumplings were brilliant!
We had a great meal. The food was delicious. In fact, we went back several times in the same week and ordered out.
Took my niece here for her birthday- really enjoyed the food and atmosphere.
Atmosphere, reliably good fusion food
I would like to thank our waitress Chelsea she was warm and pleasant and made my Birthday dinner special. We were escorted to our table which was upstairs, were it seemed to be a girl’s night out, there were several tables of just ladies enjoying their friends and food. The food was served in a timely manner and was to die for. Chelsea surprised me at the end with a Birthday dessert which completed my dinner experience with a bang. My guest tried a couple of specialty drinks which she said was delicious and would try again. Overall the night was great and we would definitely return.
Everything was excellent!!!
It was my birthday dinner and I waited 45 minutes for Lobster fried rice that was cold, everything seemed to take forever to come out except the check and the carry out container. Very disappointed
Food was really good. Restaurant was extremely loud.
Wonderful. The sea bass may have been the best fish entree we have ever had. My peppered beef was quite delicious as well.
Delicious meal and good drinks. Service was disappointing.
They brought out the dessert perfectly with the note I told open table about. Food was so good had the best time with the love of my life. Our waitress was amazing everyone was super attentive. Aesthetic 10/10
The food was outstanding. The service slow. Also, were seated outside. Asked to be moved to under canopy because it was starting to rain. Were told table was reserved. We ordered, ate, paid, and table requested was still available.
The food was awesome but the waitress clearly was overwhelmed and we were seated next the kitchen but she wasn’t attentive enough and we were looking for her most of the night
Food was good, service was ok
Great service, awesome ambiance, and the food was fantastic!!
Food was amazing and our waitress was outstanding!!
