Food and service were excellent as always and I would have given 5 stars but the restaurant was super cold.
The food and service was amazing. The mangers were accommodating when an extra guest arrived at our table. I enjoyed the food but the lamb chops and dumplings sampler were my favorite. The decor was an added bonus for those who love a good ambiance.
Always a wonderful time here! I was celebrating my birthday this time! Our food was delicious! Our waiter Jeffrey was great! Another waitress named Melanie that we haven't seen since she was 1 st hired-came over to say hi & remembered our whole order- she is amazing! Can't wait to come back!
Service great and food was exceptional. Sea Bass melts in your mouth. The dumplings are perfectly prepared, and the donuts for desert are a perfect way to finish.
Best restaurant in the city. Never a bad meal. Menu gets better every visit
We have been to Asia at least 10 times. Nothing we ate in Buddakan resembled anything we ate in the Far East. They had a lot of fancy names to describe dishes that were pedestrian. Buddakan is very overpriced for people who know nothing about Asian food.
Tables that I was sat at was chipped and scratched up, service was poor, waiter was on his phone. Entrave way floor was dirty with leaves and dirt.
It is great every time we come to this restaurant!!
Great food and great service!!
Great food and great service. My ONLY complaint is that it was quite noisy. In every other way it was perfect.
Requested a booth and got the most beautiful table. Service and food were on point.
Fantastic! Food prepared so well it’s a religious experience
Delish food, attentive staff, yummy drinks, cool/moody vibe.
Always a great dinner but the noise level sometimes makes it impossible to hear others at the table. The addition of loud music to the conversation of customers doesn’t help.
Wonderful food, spotty service and very very loud. Could not hear our table mates speak.
5pm reservations for three. Establishment opens at 5pm. We arrive at 5:05. Three or four tables already seated. They take us to the worst table in the house. Right in front of kitchen. Servers constantly walking by. We ask to be seated elsewhere and their reaction in priceless. So our punishment is to be seated upstairs!
Never understand why restaurants try to fill worst tables first. Plenty of available tables. Just sets the wrong tone for the evening. Hopefully my daughter will not want to go back anytime soon! As for meal. Server was very nice and attentive and food was good.
Always delicious. Never disappoints! Looking foward to the next visit!
My 2nd time there and still fantastic food. I would recommend to anyone. We had the chicken and ginger dumplings, lobster egg rolls, lamb chops entree, and short ribs entree. My husband was so impressed that he then ordered their calamari salad WHICH WAS SOOOOOO TASTEY!!! We also had 2 margaritas 🍹🍹 each and split a tiny dessert.
WE WILL BE BACK.
This is my 'go to' place, and they don't disappoint.
Second time coming will be back
Jus too darn noisy to enjoy our meal. Food was delicious and service was outstanding, but not a pleasant experience.
Most delicious Sea Bass ever. Everything that came out was delicious and service was very quick, possibly a little TOO attentive though. I would rather hang onto my silverware and napkin between plates then have someone grab each piece individually with four people at a time, halting our conversations. I know some people who pay the prices they charge expect that type of service but I think if you motion that you're fine they should leave the choice up to the diner.
Other than that petty and slight annoyance, everything was spectacular. Would definitely come back for another special occasion.
Great experience, great chargrilled aged beef
Let me first start off by saying there was no wait we sat right down the food was amazinggggg omgggg I had lobster fried rice and bbq ribs shessshhh and for desert I had the donuts with the variety dipping sauce
Excellent service and cuisine. My all time favorite restaurant in Philadelphia.
Everything from the moment we stepped in was incredible! Would absolutely recommend!
Excellent Asian dishes. Dinner for 6. Dim Sum was outstanding. Every entree was delicious and desserts were perfect. Great service, however, coffee after dinner was served cold.
My partner & I went here for the first time !! This is now our favorite Asian restaurant ! Authentic cuisine, friendly atmosphere, and very fast service ! The Buddha statue is huge, and fascinating !
Every dish, from the Dim Sum to the Peking Duck was delicious and really enjoyed by our group.
The ambiance, service and food were all 5 star!
A fabulous experience!
The food was spectacular. Great overall environment. And our waitress Katie was amazing. Can’t wait to go back. Highly recommend.
Buddakhan was excellent. Something on the menu for everyone. The crab fried rice was fantastic as were tuna spring rolls and general Tsao dumplings
Great food. Great waitress, great environment!! Would totally recommend
Been eating here for over 15 years. Always a hit never a miss. THE SEABASS WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!!!
Consistency always for food quality and service. We’ve been coming here since they opened 20+ years ago and am never disappointed
