Great place to dine in
Always good and never disappoint.
A must dining experience. ++++++ If you enjoy good food, open beautiful environment and good service then this is the spot for you.
Terrific, dynamic, creative Asian fusion cuisine. Always great chow. Best Peking Duck this side of China. Great design but WAY loud. Ask for a table upstairs if you want to talk rather than shout at your tablemates
We had a very nice experience. The food came very quick and was delicious.
Delicious and the lunch bento box is an amazing value at only $18 plus 6 for a dessert sampler. Yummy!!
The restaurant is beautiful and we had a very hard time deciding what to order!
Great meal and great service! I made the reservation with 2 coworkers that were from out of town and have never been to Buddakan. They loved it! The sea bass I had was one of the best I’ve ever tasted.
The food was delicious and came out hot. Our waiter was very attentive.
Waiter was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We ordered dumplings as one of our apps, to which he asked if we wanted to make the order 6 total since there’s normally 5 in an order and 2 of us. Single handedly the best thing a waiter has ever done!
Amazing! Loved it!
Food was amazing. Edemame dumplings, cauliflower and tofu were delicious!!!
My friends and I were attending a professional conference and selected Buddakan for dinner. The food was amazing, atmosphere was lovely, and the service impeccable. If you have the time, you should definitely go and save room for dessert. The dessert bento box is worth it! We appreciated the help we received in selecting our items and liked sharing everything we ordered. The scallion pancake is delicious as were the pork belly steam buns. Really, everything was great. Definitely a Philadelphia favorite!
Loved the food! I had the General Tso's dumplings and lobster rice! Yummy! And don't miss the dessert menu. Totally great people watching and hopping bar!
Tremendous food and great service. What more could you want
Edamame dumplings were delicious. Lamb chops and Seabass were amazing as well. Not a place to be missed! Will definitely be back
My wife got sick on the way home. Sea bass.
We absolutely love the ambiance and food! Would highly recommend to family and friends!
Perfect night for an early sweet 16 dinner with our daughter before the Shen Yun show at the Merriam. Thank you for attention to her food allergy & a lovely dessert presentation!
Great service. A different look at Asian food. Lots of great choices that were all very good
We ate at Buddakan's - the first time for me and second for my wife. Everything was incredible, authentic, and appropriately sized. The Szechuan dishes were appropriately spicy and the flavor profiles of all our food was complex and perfect. We will definitely dine here again.
Very fine Asian Fusion, with a wide variety of meat, fish, and vegetable choices. Noisy and a long walk from the Flower Show (Convention Center), but worth the trip. Food arrives at the table hot and fresh, strong flavors, reasonably priced wines, fun desserts, great experience.
This was once a great restaurant, but unfortunately it's now well past its prime. The service was unprofessional, abrupt, and rude, and the the black cod was slimy. Stephen Starr has obviously moved on to his newer restaurants, and forgotten about the high standards this one used to have. It's a shame, really.
Beautiful restaurant - loved the design and the details in the decor. The waitstaff were wonderful, loved the hostesses.
The food was - at best - mediocre, and I was really disappointed. My expectations were pretty high, based on the other reviews (and the cost). Everything was salty and there was a heavy flavor of mayo on a number of dishes. Good mashed potatoes - that's the only thing I'd eat again.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't terrible. It wasn't inedible (though you needed to wash away the salt). It just wasn't good, either.
We left to get dessert elsewhere - two courses were enough to let us know not to try again.
Most of the food was exceptional. The cashew chicken, which usually is very good, was more like tofu and undercooked.
The waiter was very efficient but at times intrusive and interrupted the conversation often. His introduction was abrupt enough to startle some of the guests.
Our party of 6 sat at a rectangular table upstairs which only allowed limited conversation amongst all without changing seats (which we did) in order to spend a few minutes with the guests not in immediate view.
Everything was outstanding. Terrific service, food was great! Loved the wasabi mash potatoes and dumplings. Those fresh donuts for dessert OMG!! Thanks again!!
Great food and presentation. A bit noisy especially if seated near the bar area.
Great food and service! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Dumpling heaven with beautiful cocktails and an aesthetic to die for
We came here because we were staying at a hotel in the neighborhood- the food and atmosphere were fantastic! The service was excellent, too.
Enjoyed very much. Great fokd
Budakhan has been consistently excellent for food & service. The ambience is great. The noise level is on the high side for quiet conversation. In spite of this, I will return often.
Great service, amazing food! Perfect for a lovely birthday lunch. Highly recommend.
Always a great meal ! Service was great and a favorite when we eat in the city . Wines are very reasonably priced as well .
The food was fabulous! We were a group of 6 and we were seated upstairs. I would have preferred to be seated downstairs where you can appreciate the ambiance. Everything we ordered was amazing!!!
Great food and great ambiance. The wasabi crusted filet was so delicious!!!!
We had an exceptional dinner with the best service (Mark)...attentive and he gave us such good suggestions for our sharing of appetizers. We had a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this wonderful dining experience!
I have heard so many things about this 0lace but never really anything about their food. A name and a chef behind it does not make a restaurant great, the food does. The dumplings fell apart. The pad thai was so dry and bland, i sent it back and ordered a new dish. I had the duck and it was good, not great. Very disappointed and will never recommend or be back again.
Just one word. AMAZING.
