Love the group dining menu. Waiters are very attentive. Most importantly, GREAT FOOD!
Great service with full bar and excellent choices for appetizers to group meals - order the 2nd choice in the group menu and you will be more than satisfied
The food, as always, was delicious. The difficulty arose wit the ordering with the waitress. Usually the waitstaff helps my friend choose gluten free items that are on the Bento Box menu and it works out perfectly. This time however, I think the waitress misunderstood and we were charged al la Carte pricing for my friends lunch, so the price for our lunches was 70.00. Normally it would be 38.00 for two Bento Boxes-a substantial difference. My friends food came out right away and mine took 30 min or more. We asked what was taking so long and she kept saying it was coming out after my friends items. We were totally confused and at the end of lunch I realized that the waitress did not put in the order for the second Bento box. She was not helpful.
This has now become my 'Go-To place for dining. They are consistently excellent. With the outstanding sauces & seasonings they incorporate into their food; the results are AMAZING!
Chelsea was an amazing server. We went for our anniversary and she went out of her way to make sure we had an amazing experience. Can't wait to go back
2 year anniversary
My overall experience was wonderful! It was a good friend of mines’ birthday and i decided to go to a place we’d never been and i can honestly say the service, food and experience was worth every penny !
Waiter was informative. Described all dishes Was not Pushy .And even took our picture by the Buda after we paid the bill!
Had a blast!
Absolutely excellent dining experience. The service was top notch. The waiter was very knowledgeable and the food was outstanding! I highly recommend!
The service was quick and so friendly. The menu selection was great and we enjoyed everything we had! (Including the cocktails!)
Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Can’t get enough. Best restaurant.
We ordered the dim sum plate and shared it. Loved the edamame dumpling. I was surprised how great it tasted. It was so creamy and buttery. The barbecued pork plater was fantastic. We had it done medium-well. It came with two onion rings that were so crispy I couldn’t believe it. The waitress was very attentive. The prices are a little high, but once in awhile it’s nice to splurge a little. Definitely one of our favorite places to eat.
Upper level seating was nice since we were at the glass to see the entire restaurant and people watch while we chatted and ate. Little right but that is to be expected when dining in center city. I dont know if the experience would have been the same with different seating. But for my evening it was very nice.
Buddakan food and service are great, but the venue is much too noisy when busy. I will not again go there for a Friday lunch.
The food and service were amazing. The Buddakan Bubble Tea drink was unique and yummy. We would have eaten here all vacation if we could have avoided the splurge.
This golden buddha has legs! Still going strong after all these years, and nearly filling the house on a recent midweek visit, but there were a couple shortcomings to note that were a bit surprising.
Service and ambiance were nearly impeccable, thankfully. The cocktails were fine, tasty and prompt, and similarly no problems with our appetizer and dim sum selections, which were up to par. The Pad Thai entree was good but not great, unfortunately off balance with nam pla (fish sauce) predominating. The Beef Chow Fun was a balanced taste extravaganza, but as interpreted (via slow-braised short rib), at least for this diner, it was bit too velvety and rich to stand in for the real thing, losing a bit in translation.
it's always a treat to go to Buddakan. This was to celebrate our anniversary and it was noted upon being greeted at the door. my wife was a little disappointed at her favorite meal, the wasabi crusted filet, as she felt it was noticeably drier and less juicy than on previous visits. However, I'd always recommend this place for special occasions. It is too pricey to be a frequent dining spot.
25th wedding and 65 birthday
Wouldn’t go anywhere else!
Great food. Good service. Very uncomfortable chairs.
service is not to the level of the other Star restaurants
We have been to Buddakan twice and it is incredible. The food is excellent - each bite you taeke is packed with tremendous flavor. Options for all types of eaters. The edamame dumplings and rock shirmp bao buns are phenomenal. Would highly recommend it!
Very posh spot for dinner. Great for dates or parties! Food was on point, and service was impeccable.
Always a hit! I dine here with colleagues for special occasions such as, retiring, leaving the company etc. We always get in and out in a timely fashion. Great food at a good price for lunch!
I love this place for lunch!
The dish holding my food had several large chips in it! Please, Steven Starr, do not allow this!
The food was delicious. The waiter was wonderful. The atmosphere is great. I have 2 complaints. 1) The person who brought the food out shoved it across the table and spilled the soup all over. He said sorry but did not clean up. I would have marked service as "excellent" if it weren't for him. 2) They need new boards for the bento boxes. Both of ours were warped. When we tried to cut the food the soup splashed all over (again!).
Best. Asian. Food. Ever.
Cannot add much more. Exceptional!!!
The place is very nice has a cool vibe. The food was delicious and had a variety on the menu. The servers were all efficient & professional. Will definitely go again.
Went for Easter dinner and the food and service was excellent!
Waitstaff is excellent. Food presentation is so pretty I hate to mess it up when eating.
Excellent meal - every bite was exceptional. Loved the atmosphere. This was a family meal - mom dad teenage daughter. We ordered 3 apps & 3 entrees and shared all which made it fun. The giant Buddha, lighting, & music vibe were fun too! Very expensive but worth it.
Scott , our server, made the meal a very enjoyable experience.
I came here with my family, and my whole family loved it. They especially liked Edamame Dumplings and Sweet Crispy Jumbo Shrimps.
I brought a friend for her 1st time and she was awed by the décor (especially the faces on the chairs) and the incredible menu choices. Service is probably the finest in the city...3 different people waited on us (ordering, serving, clearing the table) & all made us feel welcomed. The eggplant, which I have ordered in other restaurants, is the best tasting of them all. Enough left over for dinner the next night.
It was my boyfriends birthday and I told them that when I made the reservation. They never acknowledged it. My lamb was burnt. The edamame dumplings were mushy.
Was so wonderful for my birthday dinner!
Buddakan never disappoints. A favorite place of ours. Waitstaff very cordial and accommodating. Food delicious!
