Buddakan rocks, consistently. It never disappoints. The food is unique and delicious (love, love, love the curried cauliflower and Szechuan pork dumplings!!) The cocktails are scrumptious and the service is awesome. What more could one ask for on a date night, or any night?!?!?!
Delicious as usual 😃
It’s always so fabulous.
Nice interior! Great service! Delicious 🥘 food!!!
Stunning atmosphere, accommodating service, the food was ammmmazing. Especially with soy allergy accommodations at an Asian restaurant! Kudos to the chef!
The outdoors dining would have been more enjoyable with a bit of heat. Ordered the crab and rice dish. The entree lack taste. A side sauce would have been nice. The creme brûlée was excellent as well as the service.
Went here with my boyfriend for date night. As far as precautions, they took your temperature before entering, all servers were wearing face masks, face shields and gloves which was nice and the tables were decently spaced out. Our server was excellent, very attentive and answered all our questions accordingly. The restaurant overall was quite dark and a little noisy for our liking with the amount of people there. When it comes to the food: the dumpling sampler is a must, the edamame dumplings were something else. We also got the lobster egg rolls which were just okay, not much flavor overall. For our mains we got shrimp pad Thai and black pepper beef. Both were large portions. The shrimp pad Thai was okay, probably wouldn’t get again. The beef was juicy and very flavorful. Overall, would come back again to try some other dishes!
Family style eating at its best, with multiple flavors made with fresh ingredients.
It was a lovely evening and we ate outdoors. Food was great as always. So was the service.
My husband and I have dined at Buddakan for many years; the food and service have never disappointed. During COVID-19 we have enjoyed the outside dining option. Buddakan is one of our favorite Philly restaurants - it is consistently excellent!!
Delicious from start to finish. Spring rolls, tuna pizza, pork dumplings for appetizers. Peking duck, tuna tataki, wasabi crusted filet, sea bass. All fantastic. Creme brulee and must-have dim sum donuts. They even presented the donuts with a sparkler for my mom's birthday. Great service, nice ambience despite COVID-19. Felt very safe - temp check before entering, all the staff was wearing face shields and masks, great social distancing. Fantastic experience! Can't wait to return.
Fantastic service and excellent food choices.
Food and service was great, definitely going back.
Excellent as always! Our favorite!
I am not one that likes to eat in the street, however Buddakan did it right.
Our waiter was outstanding(Clint) and to top it off he can sing. Well at least a birthday song. lol
Food was great and for being on the street it was very enertaining yet we were enclosed.
Nice atmosphere good fresh meal tuna tartar roll, and Lobster Shanghai yummy.
Outstanding, interesting cuisine. Many, many choices, all of which we wanted to try.
We made a 5PM reservation on a Sunday so the number of dining guests socially distancing was perfect. The servers and waitstaff wore masks and face shields to protect themselves and the patrons.
Our drink and food order came out in record time in comparison to pre-COVID.
Myself and dining companion both ordered the same items of Cantonese spring rolls which are shrimp and chicken spring rolls served with a mustard dipping sauce that has a horseradish base so you will get that kick in your nose with each bite (at least that's what happens to me). For dinner we ordered the Lobster Fried Rice.
I love rice based dishes so I can not speak to other items on the menu as my go-to when I dine at Buddakan is something with fried rice.
For dessert, we had the very delicious donuts that include 3 dipping sauces (a chocolate, a cream cheese, and raspberry).
Fantastic food. Great service. Quality of food just like before covid. They haven't skipped a beat with the food quality.
You can never go wrong at Buddakan. The entire menu is phenomenal and the service is top notch.
This used to be my favorite restaurant until my fiancé and I got sick after our last meal there. So sad.
Great outdoor option quieter on east side of Broad
Never disappoints...love this place!
Food and drinks were absolutely amazing. Always consistently impressed with Buddakan's food and service.
Food and service was great
Like always excellent
Because of the pandemic only 4 people per table
Welcoming friendly staff and romantic setting.
We went for our 5 anniversary, something different and enjoy everything! Plan to go back!
They do a very good job doing everything they can to create a safe environment.
Great server and great food like coming there would love if you could keep an outdoor type setting in the future
Buddakan, excellent food and service. We have been to Buddakan a number of times, and have never been disappointed. Noise level was low due to the table spacing and the bar being closed. I am a little hard of hearing, and have been there when it was difficult to hear the server. Our server couldn't have been nicer. A great dining experience.
My only complaint was the cold weather. Although they have a heating system in the outdoor tented area, it was not very effective. The temperature was about 50 degrees outside. The tented area wasn't an improvement to being in the open.
But the food and service was amazing as always.
Food was phenomenal!! I would definitely go back !
Covid19 has changed things, but excellent food
Everytime I go here for dinner it has always been a great experience and the food is always outstanding. I will be back.
The food and service at Buddakan is consistently great. We had a delicious dinner - eating outside under the heat lamps on a clear night. They have done a great job with COVID protections and do not seem to have missed a beat!
Love the unique presentations and flavors. Adds up to a great dining experience!
Food was just average food a place this expensive. Our martini was not filled to the top. Service and atmosphere were good.
