Great food, great service, but the noise was deafening.
It’s been 5 years since I been here and the food still taste the same. The staff is friendly and outgoing.
I had dinner for the first time after 5 years with some friends you had never dined at Buddakan. So glad I picked this spot to bring them — they loved it! And will be back again.
Absolutely delicious and impeccable service
Please bring back the red dragon tofu! It was the best thing on the menu (even if it wasn’t actually in the menu!)
We were seated in a corner without a view of anything except the bar…we had reservations. The waiter was new to the restaurant but an excellent server, though a mistake he made in ordering resulted in a delay in us receiving our entrees. We were comped a dessert, and it was delicious. The food was good but not great. I had the cashew chicken bowl and some of the chicken was dry. My date ate the Korean beef bowl but I saw very little beef. I saw other couples enjoying food the looked great: aged beef, lamb chops, and what looked like pad Thai. I would give it another chance: different food and a different table.
Waiter was greater, loved the food, as always.
Overall I loved my birthday experience this restaurant was truly amazing , I cannot wait to come back I love it here.
Unreal. Edamame dumplings are a MUST. And the wasabi crusted filet. Wowwwww
Food was delicious. Waiter was very nice but forgetful once it got busier. He forgot our dessert order and took a long time to get a cocktail once dinner was served. Wasn't very happy with seat but I did not say anything...we were put 6 feet from the door with foot traffic behind the chair. I got hit a couple times by wait staff walking by. On the open table site I commented that is was our anniversary but noone brought it up, meaning the host or waiter.
Food was good but my waitress never checked to ask if everything was alright, which is t professional. I only had a main course with no appetizer or drinks.
Buddakan was an excellent restaurant! The Enlightenment martini is delicious, as well as the dim sum. Pan seared sea bass is to die for! Will dine here again.
Amazing evening. Food and service top notch!
We visited for our 1 year anniversary. The person who waited on us was awesome. I believe his name was Joe. Good was really good however the crab fried rice fell a bit short. It was heavy with cilantro and didn’t really have a fried rice texture more like steamed rice. The appetizer short ribs were amazing, hands down the best of our meals. Portions were very big. Over all it was worth it.
While the food and service was decent, we hated having a table basically sitting in the main entrance next to the waiting area. A reservation made days in advance should never be subjected to that area, and that area shouldn’t be setup for seating anyway. I essentially had waiting guests talking and standing over my shoulder for most of the evening, as well as people walking down the small flight of stairs to exit standing over us while we wait. Not the experience I had in mind for my girlfriends birthday.
I had never been to Buddakan and was so impressed with both the service and the food. Our waitress, Susie was so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and made our first experience to pleasant! The food was amazing. I am a vegan and they have a menu to accommodate vegan and vegetarian. It was wonderful!
My second visit and it was better than the first which was a great time. Service was a tad slower than before and I believe that was due to a lack of manpower but it wasn’t slow enough to complain. I will be back and I recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Asian cuisine.
Service and food were outstanding. A little loud, but romantic.
Food was good. Wasn't too crazy about the chicken and ginger dumplings though. Our cocktails were also very good.
Service seemed rushed and room temperature was very cold
Excellent food, ambience and service. Everything from appetizers to Dim Sum, mains and desserts was great.
Had a wonderful birthday dinner here last night! Our waiter Anish was phenomenal!
My 12 year old sons first time here. He loved it! He’s a bit of a foodie and can’t wait to go back. Our server was amazing!!!!
Great food! Good vibe! Dope ambiance good customer service
Absolutely loved my dining experience. Celebrated my wedding anniversary and my husband and I will definitely be back 👍🏾
I love this restaurant. Amazing food! Very fun and energetic, although I have been to a more laid back, romantic location, which I may prefer. We were behind a huge party with lots of flashing cameras and a photographer. A bit much but otherwise perfect!
Never disappoints. Always amazing food and service.
Service was great. Food was excellent
Always a good experience at Buddakan. We went before closing and they were able to accommodate us with a moderate sense of urgency. Meal was fantastic.
Great would definitely go back
My baby dolls
Great service, atmosphere and food was tasty! Lively on a Monday night as well. Make sure to get the doughnuts for dessert!
the restaurant was too cold to enjoy your food
It was speedy and tasteful
The four of us let each other sample our dinners. The lobster was amazing, The short ribs were so tender and tasty,And the sea bass melted in your mouth. Need I say more?
I know the waiter said that dishes co.e out when they are ready, but we had two appetizers, three drinks, two entrees and were done in under an hour. It then took 15 minutes to get the check.
Much too rushed for the price paid.
Delicious food, great cocktails and wine! Attentive service!
It was a great evening to celebrate my friend’s 33rd birthday!
Our server was so attentive and amazing. Our drinks were disappointing but the food and fried donuts did not disappoint!
