Came here for bday celebration. Great food, ambience is super, and our server, Abigail was very accommodating. My wife enjoyed her Chilean sea bass and I loved the Shanghai lobster paired with Pinot Grigio. Even the xtra mushroom pot stickers appetizer and eggplant with garlic sauce were delicious. For desert, my wife picked crème brûlée, I chose dip sum doughnut with different sauces - strawberry, chocolate ganache. We had to take home most of the doughnuts (we’re both too full). I finally finished the meal with an after dinner drink named ‘cure’ - Hennessy cognac with hot sauces.
We enjoyed the sea bass and the crispy fish as well as the our appetizers. It was very busy for a Monday night so the noise level was high but still able to have a conversation without difficulty. Very enjoyable and will be definitely be back.
Our server was the greatest. She was very knowledgable and gave us suggestions since we were visiting Philly. The food was delicious and the ambiance was first rate. Great choice for us in the few days we had here.
We celebrated my wife’s birthday and it was a great time.
The food was very good but the restaurant was extremely loud even to have a one in one conversation. Beautiful restaurant!
I have gone many times years ago and loved it. I didn't expect the same food. I thought the food definitely lost some luster. Tasted one step better then a regular Chinese restaurant. Not impressed this time.
Service was excellent, the food was even better, nice ambience, very enjoyable experience.
Fantastic food, great service and not rushed at all! Lovely evening!
The food was just as great as I have remembered it to taste. Our server was kind and helpful. Overall a great experience!
Excellent, attentive service. Loved the Asian Caesar Salad and Vegetable Fried Rice. Nice special occasion place.
Went here for 28th Wedding Anniversary! Our waitress Susie was excellent, food was delicious.
Service was slow. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and my wife made sure that they send out 2 desserts with candles but they brought only one. Was a bit disappointing. I’ve been coming to this place for 10+ years and it’s the 1st time we were disappointed with food and service.
We absolutely love this place!! The waiter was great and the food was amazing to say the least. Drinks were also very good. It’s been a awhile since we had dinner here. We knew coming back that it was going to be a good time but then we forgot how good it actually was immediately. From the Edamame Dumplings, the Sashimi, Spicy Rock Shrimp Bao Buns, to the delicious Sea Bass and the doughnuts. We couldn’t have asked for a better anniversary date. They also gave us a coconut sorbet complimentary for celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary. We will definitely be dinning back here again!!!
It was out 10 year anniversary and our meal was excellent. When our server brought our desert he made it special for us with a candle. It was great all around.
Food was AMAZING!! I can’t wait to go back.
Our waiter was absolutely amazing! Will definitely be back!
We had a flawless experience! The dining room is beautiful! Every dish was excellent and innovative with a stunning presentation. The service is efficient, but the waiters are busy so they don't have time to establish a relationship with diners. The composition of diners is one of the most diverse I have experienced in Philadelphia. Overall Buddakan is for me one of the top 5 restaurants in the city!
Great time for my husband’s birthday!!
Been wanting to go for years, but finally made reservations for my friend’s birthday. Joseph was our server and made the evening extra special. He gently guided us, when we were unsure, and managed that balance of being attentive without being intrusive. It really was some of the best service I’ve had in ages. The food was amazing, as well. My friend and I shared the tuna pizza and the Cantonese spring roll. And then we ordered the Dry Aged beef and Crab fried rice. Those dishes paired fantastically. We were too full to get dessert, but will be returning, for sure, for those donuts. And, I’ll see if I can ask for Joseph!
Never disappointed coming here!! Love the good snd Lychee Martjnis!!!
My wife’s birthday dinner. Everything was delicious and well presented. Fun restaurant.
Food and atmosphere was amazing and our waiter Giuseppe was awesome and super attentive. We will be back for sure!
It has a while since we dined at Buddakan … what a great come back visit! Appetizers and entrees were outstanding … pork loin and sea bass. Lively ambience and beautiful people. Will return soon!
Would highly recommend and I can’t wait to go gain.
First time at Buddakan the food was great, loved the decor. Would definetly return
This is a beautiful resturant. Server was knowledgeable and prompt. Food was amazing. Great for a special date.
Have been dining there for 5 years and this time it was very underwhelming.
It was amazing!!! Food was delicious!!!
Service was amazing, ambiance is always my favorite in philly. Tried some new food items and would say there were pretty decent. Dim sum sampler was amazing. Drinks were delicious!
The food was absolutely fantastic. Ordered a vodka martini and we got charged $1 for added ice, which was upsetting. The music wad also very loud and we had to shout at each other and our waitress to hear each other. The korean fried rice and lemon chicken were both delicious, and dessert was fantastic. Everything was great, except the loud music and being charged for ice.
Dinner with Hubby for my birthday. Everything exceeded our expectations! Food, drinks, service and especially my dessert. I have a sweet and it did not disappoint. Was pleasantly surprised of the display of my dessert, very nice touch! Thank you for making my day special. We will revisit this place again soon.
Nice night out with our daughter for a belated anniversary dinner. A little pricey but delicious!
Busman took my dish before I was finished- a $60 entree. I asked him to have it boxed up and he instead piled all the dirty dishes on top. Without even an offer to replace it or remove it from the bill.
Great service & food
Birthday for my son who turned 18. Everything was top not h
Great as always!
Amazing service amazing food.
Buddakhan is easily one of my fave eateries. Food always fresh & delicious. The ambience is vibrant & just makes you feel good. Our waiter seemed to be a bit lackluster which happens sometimes in the restaurant industry. Nevertheless, looking forward to coming back time & time again.
Waitress was great. The young girl seating us was snotty. Asked politely not to sit near the kitchen, then my wife asked to confirm that it was my daughters birthday and hostess gave her an attitude. It was very unpleasant. Luckily our waitress made up for it.
