Buddha Garden; an extension of Buddha Sky Bar located on the 1st floor of 217 East Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach; an Asian concept with design and cuisine influences rooted in Chinese and Japanese interpretations.

Asian accents complement the authenticity of the cuisine featuring Dim Sum, Sushi, & Wok selections from our "from-scratch' kitchen.

The three-part menu nods to different food preparations including an open sushi bar, dim sum, a full kitchen as well as Delray Beach's first Binchotan charcoal grill. In addition to traditional menu items like Peking Style Duck it also features a great vegetarian selection.

Buddha Garden features full dinner service at all seats. Please specify 1st floor (Buddha Garden) or 3rd floor (Buddha Sky Bar) when making your reservations.

This was a terrible experience at a restaurant we previously enjoyed. I ordered edamame and Peking duck. After placing the order the server returned to say these items were unavailable. However, a table that ordered after us was served edamame. In addition, the service was slow in bringing drinks and other items. Also, we dined outside but the music was exceptionally loud. In short, we couldn't wait to leave.

Horrible service! Sat for 20 minutes and never even got water. We were one of 5 tables full and we counted 7 servers. Had to leave and they didn't even notice. Don't waste your time! Get sushi next door at City Oyster for reals service. Never coming back

Unfortunately, it was unknown to us when making the reservation that it was a set menu (for Valentine's Day). Server said it was OpenTable's fault for not posting it online. No prob, but on top of that, food was from a new menu and so not good. Too bad, I live down the block and come often - hope they go back to the the old menu, so much better. Great service as usual though.

Jim and I had this great server, Rob. He was very personable as well as helpful. I am gluten free and a fussy eater. He guided me to the perfect solution from the grill section and the pineapple fried rice. Just perfect. This was our 1st time upstairs in the Sky Bar section. I recommend asking for a window seat if you go. The view is what makes it even more special!

This restaurant has an early bird menu but no menu was available. The sushi we had was absolutely delicious but the price was outrageously expensive. It cost $3.33 for each piece! The shrimp shu mai was very tough and not very tasty.

The ambience, service and food was excellent. I've been to the restaurant before, but brought two people who have never been there in the past. They could not get over how good everything was. Thank you to the hostess, server and chefs for an amazing night.

Tried Buddha Garden because it seemed like a new type of eating experience. We were a party of six, three couples . I would say it was a split decision on Buddha Garden. Two of the women did not like their main course. One item was a salad with duck. She found the duck dry and tasteless. The other women had the lettuce wrap salad. This salad had romaine lettuce for the wraps which she found hard to use. She likes an iceberg style lettuce better.
The Korean ribs were quite good . I had the Buddha Rainbow sushi roll which I found good. The men in our party were fine with the food but found the place a bit too noisy.
My husband and I may go back again, but on our own.

I had heard mixed reviews about Buddah Garden so since we earned an open table award we thought it was the perfect time to try them. The prices are ridiculous. The portions are small. We got there 10 minutes prior to happy hour ending and they would not allow us to order food from the happy hour menu. They did allow us 1 glass of wine at the happy hour price so that seemed odd.
The pineapple fried rice had so much curry and the tiniest pieces of pineapple and chicken we thought we had the wrong dish. Sorry to say we will never go back nor recommend this place. The location is great and they seem to have a hot rooftop bar which might be their draw but as far as we are concerned it was a rip off!

As always, the Asian fusion cuisine is very good. I highly recommend a visit for very good food and an eclectic atmosphere. The dim sum dishes are all very good. We always get the spicy pork dumplings. They come with three sauces that add your choice of a soy, sweetness, or a little heat. The sea salt and truffled edamame is a nice, quick starter to share while you wait for your appetizers. The rock shrimp appetizer is a very nice sized portion that was plenty for two people, and can even be enough for three or four people. All the sushi dishes offer variety and are worth trying. Oh...and their craft cocktails are very creative and tasty. Enjoy your visit!

Just finished eating here and honestly it's not worth the time or hype to eat here. We were sat in an unorganized matter and where I was sat down I was hit every time someone walked by which was the entire time because I was right next to the computer to order. We were not greeted or given any attention for 15 min. Our waitress was nice, but seemed stress and uninterested in talking about the menu. I picked this place for my boyfriends birthday and we didn't enjoy a moment of it. And they must have not looked at the notes of me stating it was his birthday because not even the words happy birthday came out of anyone's mouth. Just overall not a good experience and we won't be back. Lastly food wasn't bad, the Atlantic roll, bourbon chicken and veggie tempura w/ sauce were good.

Innovative approach to food but dishes were over-seasoned. Better if the natural flavors take center stage, not soy sauce and other accents.

This restaurant used to be a solid choice with good sushi. Had not only the worse service I've ever had in a restaurant, but the sushi wasn't fresh and the whole night was just a disaster. Hard to believe they are still in business.

My boyfriend and I went here on Valentine's day. I have been searching for a place like this for so long! It was such a beautiful place. We had upper level seating with our reservation that we were unaware of on our arrival so that was a nice surprise. The ambiance is one of a kind and i love the beautiful Japanese tree in the center of all the diners. For how busy they must have been the service was excellent our waiter Matt made recommendations and we took them, I'm glad we did! We got the baked scallops as an appetizer they were perfection. However, If I did it again I would've requested our sushi(great wall) first before the rest of the food. It was all beautifully presented and my boyfriend really loved everything especially the mushroom dumplings. I wish it was more food for the price but overall it was wonderful and I'm so happy I chose it for the occasion and will definitely be back!

We never tried Buddha Garden before and were on Open Table looking to get Valentines reservations and when it came up we decided to book it. We were happily surprised upon arrival how pretty the restaurant was. The host was very polite as was our waiter. The menu had a great selection and we sampled many items and found all to be delicious. Good thing we were not in a rush because some of our items seemed to have been forgotten about and were only delivered to us upon asking. The last plate to arrive 2 hours into our meal was my husbands main course. He ordered the Valentines day special filet of snapper. He received a tempura whole fish. Obviously not what he intended. We politely returned this dish and the waiter was kind enough to send us over a dessert and give a discount on the bill for the inconvenience. This service issue would not keep me from dining here again. The food was terrific and I'm sure it was just an oversight

We're not quite sure why the horrible loud, pounding music is piped all thought the building.... to both floors... so that talking to your companions or even the server requires screaming.
Obviously, they aren't interested in what the decibels will do to our or their employees' hearing! We DEFINITELY WON'T RETURN ON THE WEEKEND, AND WILL WARN ALL OUR FRIENDS AS WELL!
