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 !
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.
The service is good. The face shields and masks make it hard to really connect.
The food is good but portions are small and expensive.
There is way cheaper Asian food to be had in Chinatown but the ambience won’t come close to that offered at a Steve Starr spot.
With that being said - I would pick Chinatown over this.
Always great! Diners should be spaced a little better: it's not the tables that should be set up 6 feet apart, it's the diners! Once seated, you are back-to-back with another diner only about 3-4 feet apart.
Very great. Food was delicious
Birthday party. Food came out quick...staff did a great job despite Covid safety precautions
Great time great food
Most amazing food all the time !!! Never dissatisfied
Beautiful space to dine if you get a reservation indoors. All the dishes we had were well made and beautifully presented. The calamari salad was an unexpected combination that works really well. Tuna tartare spring rolls were lovely. The short ribs were tender and fell off the bone, very delicious. The wasabi mashed potatoes were another unexpected combo and was fantastic. The service was excellent as well, I believe the server's name was Isaiah.
All COVID safety precautions were in place. Arrived on time for reservation and was promptly seated. Food was delicious.
Excellent service and excellent food. Great place to take a significant other for a special occasion.
Everything at this restaurant from the decor to service and the food were excellent. Everything was absolutely delicious definitely will come back whenever I’m on Philly.
The one in Atlantic City is by far why better, so I was very disappointed
25th anniversary. Our waiter was great!!
The food is mediocre at best it's not like it used to be
We booked late do only outdoor seating -
Food was delicious and priced fairly. I love the décor but the music was too loud and repetitive. That would be my only complaint.
Fun vibe and food was great. Salad was huge! Definitely enough for two people......Sea Bass was our fave!
Very nice place, quiet & romantic. The food was very high priced & lacked flavor, the crab fried rice was unseasoned.I wish the food tasted good, it would’ve been a much better experience.
Terrific dumplings. Sublime duck. Georgous room
They did a great job arranging with the virus, felt very comfortable. Service was exceptional food was delicious
I had the lobster which I had to force myself to stop eating. The portion was generous and it was so amazing, flavors and vegetables blended perfectly together. I didn’t want to over eat But I had to force myself to stop
Inside or Outside, food is excellent. Highly recommend
It was enjoyable, I will be back alot. My favorite place 😍
Everything was to die for. I would recommend getting the appetizers. They were so delicious.
Our server was really nice. The restaurant hand the COViD guidelines very professional.
The food is still amazing. Their COVID19 measures were excellent and made me feel comfortable dining indoors.
For Covid if was great
We scheduled under open table for restaurant week. When our party arrived they then tell us they are not participating in restaurant week. I'm not clear as to why they were listed at all then. So after spending $389.88 for a party of four.. We were not impressed. And this is not my first time at this restaurant. I will not be coming back .
My favorite restaurant in Philadelphia. I’ll try to go at least 3 to 4 times a year when I’m in Philadelphia
