Specifically requested a table that would be nice and secluded for my partners birthday however we were made to wait 20 minutes for our table no waiter had any idea or knowledge of our booking. Finally after the delay the floor manager decided to place us slap bang in the middle of the bar area within a few inches of two other tables we practically could have had our meal with the people either side of us. Almost a 2 hour wait for our main course on a Wednesday night is unacceptable yes it was busy as there was a network event but we arrived at 7:30...our mains arrived after 9pm. The only positive was the food, the quality was next to none the service however was terrible I hope next time our next visit is massively different.

A very pleasant experience overall and a pleasant change from the usual afternoon tea. The savoury treats were delicious but the sweet pastries were slightly disappointing.

I was so disappointed with my experience. I ate here a few years ago and I loved it so was excited to come back. There was a private party that had their own music blaring out which clashed with the music in the main restaurant which killed the atmosphere completely. The waiters were not friendly and almost made you feel like a nuisance. We ordered cocktails when we arrived and my partner waited half an hour to receive his in which time we had already eaten 2 courses. For the price that I paid I expected the standard to be a lot higher and to be looked after properly.
Will not be returning and would advise friends and family to steer clear

Terrible service, and an all round underwhelming experience. Did not feel like a luxury restaurant at all, too many tables crammed in which made it very noisy. Food was extremely average and we definitely won’t be going back or recommending the place to anyone. Overpriced and not worth it!

Nice atmosphere, however staff were inattentive staff.
Staff took a long time to serve our table despite quite a few of them standing around. A waiter forgot about our drinks order so we were waiting about 25 mins for drinks.
Fried squid as a starter was mediocre, and had a rubbery texture and was slightly bland.
Main went down better than the starter & a good portion was served for the price.
Decided to ask for the service charge to be removed, as the overall experience didn’t reach my expectations.

Went here for my birthday with 6 friends. We waited for 30 minutes to just get a menu, then another 20 minutes just to place the order. Food arrived but had piece of hair inside the food. Was told by the manger the food would be from them and would not get charged for, when the bill arrived we realised they charged for the food with the hair in it and also for tap water. The services was soooo poor would not be recommend if to anyone

Unfortunately the whole experience was poor. However The front of house was lovely, but after that everything went down hill. We were seated downstairs, we were not given a menu and after 20 minutes we called the waiter and asked for one. When the food arrived it was pretty poor with little taste. I’m an avid Buddha bar fan having visited in Dubai, Paris and Budapest so was really disappointed at this experience, Won’t be coming back for a long time.

Everything was great! The only reason for not having 5 stars across the board is because we had to ask for menus after we sat down and ask for someone to take our drinks order. They seemed slightly under staffed

Food was delicious.
Service on drinks was terrible. Had empty glasses for half the time and often had to ask more than once for our drinks.
Having said that, at the end we were given a complimentary sample of some maki rolls with our last drinks order

I was very excited to go to the Buda bar, I knew it would be expensive, but £9 for a mock tail and £4.50 for 750ml of water is very bad, and the sushi was so overpriced and not as good as Yo Shushi. Two people not drinking alcohol having only a small amount of food is a total rip off.

4 pieces of salmon nagiri for £19 OMG that’s totally overpriced and it was not that nice.

I will not be recommending it to friends for sure.

Venue was amazing food was quality and had quantity. Service was absolutely poor waited a good 15mins to be even given a menu food & drink. Took about 30 mins for our waiter to come and attend to our table. When given fresh cutlery after our starters, waiter just place the new ones on the table without a napkin. For the price of the bill, the service definitely needs to be 10/10.
