The staff were so kind. my friends showed up 30-40 mins late and since it wasn't busy they didn't mind at all. The food was excellent but the staff really make this place nice. I also saw the star from Prometheus walk by. I forget her name, but it's that's sort of neighborhood

Best pasta in NYC. They are always packed and yet they have no press about them. It's a true hidden gem.

I had not been to Buddakan since before the COVID pandemic started - no longer working in NYC. The place was just as I remembered- good food, good service, and happy attentive staff. This is my "go to" place for dinner when I come into NYC.

Food is incredible, wait staff are super friendly! I left my credit card and they called me immediately to let me know :) The only reason it isn't 5 stars all around is that it is bit on the pricier end for what is a very casual/cool/chill place. I get it though and happy to help local restaurants out!

Took 50 minutes to be seated. Booth had steak sauce from prior party still on the seat- my boss needed to ask the waiter for a napkin so he could wipe down his seat himself. Service was poor throughout dinner- staff seemed overworked and really didn’t pay much attention to the table other than when the food was delivered. Meals were excellent, thankfully, otherwise would have been a complete bust. I was embarrassed to bring my clients here, unfortunately. Won’t be coming back anytime soon- many other steak houses with good food and much better service.

Amazing vegan food!! We got the truffle mushroom pizza and the cacio e pepe pasta. Both amazing! For dessert we got the chocolate cake with ice cream; the cake was disappointing, Everything else was great though!

It was excellent, good, fair and not good. Excellent: The Hot and Sour Soup Good: Service, very good. Meal, good. Fair: Noise level. I enjoyed the old school rap but thought it was tad loud for having conversations across the table. Not Good: How we were greeted at the door. Typically when you arrive at the door ten minutes early, the host/hostess asks you if you wish to sit at the bar where it is more comfortable until the rest of your party arrives (the bar was empty). During this occurrence, I was asked if I knew if all of my party was on their way and how far out they were. They have to arrive on time or within a certain time frame, or risk losing the table. Mind you, that night the restaurant was only between 25% to 40% full the entire time we were there. The door staff needs to soften the tone and appreciate that customers are coming to their establishment to enjoy a meal. We have many choices of places to eat.

Love the place, but would like to see a serving spoon delivered right off the bat with the country salad and other shared items. The serving spoon does not appear part of the MO here. You have to flag down a waiter or bus boy. And the wrapped utensils at each place setting only include a knife and fork. A small but vexing oversight.

Great neighborhood vibe. Very creative menu, everything we tasted was excellent- especially the matzoh ball ramen. Service by Clifton was excellent. Read about this place and couldn’t wait to try it on our next trip to NY. It did not disappoint.

We had the most amazing time! The food was excellent and the service was impeccable. Lauren was very friendly and attentive and even took us to see the outside set up. She makes you feel welcomed. Everything was delicious from the hand crafted cocktails to the entrees. We were too full for dessert. We will be coming back very soon.
