Ambiance spoilt by owner of restaurant sitting on next table dealing with phone calls and staff issues spoilt our experience having previously been to Buddha bars in Paris & Dubai without such issue this experience in London would influence my decision on a return visit

Not a good experiment overall I’m afraid. Service was very poor had to wait just to place order for drinks and then dinner.

Disappointing as we travelled 2 hours to enjoy the evening and nothing was special about Buddha Bar

Nice restaurant and great food! However when booking the restaurant through open table I requested a small dessert that said "happy birthday" however I do not think this message was passed on but other than that lovely service and lovely food. Just disappointed the birthday dessert message was not passed on.

We checked in at 11.45 PM and the waitress literally wanted to kick us out after eating our snacks and drink, so that the Bar is closing in time and put the food away in front of us, we think that he was Russian. Very unfriendly service!

The Buddha Bar is a stylisch Restaurant in Knightsbridge serving excellent Sushi and different other Asian specialities. The service is friendly and can give good advice regarding the different dishes and drinks (good wine and cocktail Selektion). In all you can select the restaurant for any kind of occasions like a date or meeting with friends. I really can recommend the restaurant.

Having read the reviews, I was expecting lacklustre service but not lacklustre food. Service was not bad, though the place could have done with a few more wait staff. But the food was very average. The batter on the chilli tofu and the vegetable tempura was too thick and heavy and generally the food lacked finesse. Perhaps we should have tried the sushi.

I booked a table for my partners birthday and can not even describe how disgusted I was with the service. 20 minutes after being seated I had to ask for someone to come to the table to take our drinks order. If the venue was busy I would be more understanding of the slow service, but the waiters had decided for whatever reason they did not need to attend to our table at ALL. After our order was taken, the only other time someone came to our table was to bring our food. We sat with our empty cocktail for 30 mins before again, I had to signal for someone to come to our table. Waiters walked past our empty drinks and finished food multiple times without a care in the world.

It was very obvious that the staff only offered their service to the people they assumed would spend the most money, as as soon as the table next ours ordered a bottle of Dom every waiter in Buddha Bar was running back and forth to check they couple weren't thirsty. It completely ruined the mood for my partner and I, as it was very clear we were being treated differently. I demanded the manager was brought to our table and he offered complimentary shots and desert to apologise for the behaviour of his staff.

I booked for Arabian night to see the belly dance show but there at the restaurant they said it starts at 11:30 pm. The website and everywhere I looked didn’t mention anything about that timing, it just say: Arabian night. Food is fine. Tables are very close to each other. No privacy distance. Waiter didn’t pass every time to clean the table

Great restaurant and bar, lively atmosphere and great crowd, however, althouth the staff were friendly and accomodating, service was slow, we waited twenty minutes for drinks to be served and when it arrived it was wrong.

Nontheless, we had a good evening

Food was delicious and I would pay more for the food so value for money was decent

The service was outstanding from the waiters, faultless!

The drinks were lovely but definitely not value for money on drinks

I came here to celebrate our very recent engagement we got sat by two large groups and got left to the waist side with service. Didn’t offer anymore drinks etc. The guests beside us were breaking glazed or taking pictures on the staircase the servers looked frustrated and the manager looked powerless. We gave him feedback after we paid but he came back suggesting shots for us. We didn’t want anything just wanted to give feedback. Dubai was better.

2. The food came before our drinks .
3. We had to ask for sauce, drinks and food that we ordered,
4. The price for the service and food was not worth it.
