About Buddakan - Atlantic City
Buddakan has been called “a temple of modern Asian cuisine.” But it’s also a testament to the possibilities of inspired design. Upon entering, the first thing one sees is the surreal Asian garden surrounded by multi-level archways and 25-foot trees that seem to grow through rocks, footbridges and the ceiling itself. The dramatic atmosphere and enchanting karma is enhanced by the presence of a gigantic Golden Buddha that watches over the entire restaurant from a head of a 24-foot communal dining room table. The menu portrays an innovative interpretation of Asian Cuisine that matches the ambience in terms of creativity, inspiration and its capacity to satisfy. A delectably imaginative fusion of Chinese, French and Asian styles that results in dishes that exotic yet comforting – all prepared with perfectionist attention to the smallest detail.
Buddakan’s spectacular yet dreamlike ambience adds a new dimension to the array of destinations at the Pier at Ceasars.

Drinks were delicious. Love the tasting menu. Great way to try a different things for a flat fee. Disappointed in desserts. The crème brûlée was burnt and one of the other desserts was cold inside. The the meal as a whole was great.

Outstanding meal and great service. We ordered Calamari salad, steamed Edamame and the Ribs (we staggered the ordered which we recommend). Everything was delicious especially the ribs! Then we ordered a meal to share since the appetizers were filling. The waiter recommended the Sea Bass which was the best we've ever had. Highly recommend Buddakan and although pricey, food is worth it.

It was the best meal and atmosphere! Celebrated my 50th and my daughters 25th birthday. We had the tasting menu which the portions were so much we had a take away bag. Don't see that often around Atlantic City. Some folks mentioned they got a small cake for they're bd. We did not - possibly due to we got the tasting menu. Not sure. Be careful at the end of your meal - our server was awesome but did offer espresso which I thought was all part of the menu. When I asked her about it she quickly had it removed without hesitation.

We were a group of 7 celebrating a 60th birthday. The food was outstanding and the wait staff very accommodating. The only thing that I can think of as a small complaint was it was fairly noisy and we had a large table and it was hard to converse from one end of the table to the other. This is our second time at Buddakan and the menu had changed slightly. We had so much food, we left with dogie bags. It's definitely a gem in AC and worth the drive wherever you are coming from. I would suggest you definitely make a reservation in advance. We had a 7:30 reservation and there was not an empty table!

Everything was great the only issue I had was that we valet parked and walked to the restaurant thru the casino. Valet did not say anything about validating parking ticket. Hostess nor waiter said anything. We walked all the way back to the valet desk to find out we needed a validation. So the choice was ... Walk all the way back to get a validation or pay 40bucks for valet. On top of that I still gave the attendant 10 bucks( wasn't his fault) so 50 bucks for parking sucked... Only because dinner was 200( not bad) left an 80 buck tip( good service) the 50 bucks was 25% of the dinner tab

The menu is great, expect to pay $100+ per person. I absolutely have to mention their desserts. I had a dinner with my husband there and we ordered two desserts - warm donuts with dipping sauces and baked ice-cream. Omg....

When visiting Atlantic City you have to eat at Buddakan. The food was amazing. The service was impeccable and the price was surprising inexpensive. On your next trip book a reservation and try to be seated in one of the private booths. Excellent overall rating!

Love the prefix menu food was very good is expected, we usually go to Phily location, the menu there is different I like the hungry lobster and they hive more tow fish . The desert was very good is well overall a special experience. Always go back , the service was not great , my husband ordered long island tea and they never serve it we had to remind the server . I will only gave three stars for services. Still is very good.

Asked for a romantic table for two and was placed in the middle of the room while many banquets were empty. Told them on open table and on the phone it was our 25th wedding anniversary and they never acknowledged with a candle or writing on plate.
while waitress was very nice, the rest of the staff looked miserable especially busboys and food runners. I can't say rude just no personality. They approach the table and do not say anything, no hello, no how are you nothing!!! Not sure who does the training but they need to work on this.
Food was very good and presented well. i would not say it was a romantic restaurant as others have said. yes it was dark but not quiet and very close to other tables.

Service was great. Recommendation and was friendly. Food was good. The only thing I would have said is that they are better accommodating for large parties. A party of 6 can get a booth which allows for space. I say this because you can't request a table that is not practically on top of another couple for a party of two, with that being said a lot of restaurant are guilty of packing people in a small area. good experience over all.

My husband and I love Budakhan and we have been here many times . This dinner was not the best we've had . We found the entrées to be very hot... Even dishes we have ordered in the past that are not space he had an unusual kick to them . So much that my husband couldn't really enjoy his dinner. We did have a nice experience the waitress was very nice the edamame ravioli are amazing.

We were 22 minutes late for our reservation (waiting on Uber) and even though we confirmed our reservation out table was given away. No call ...just given away after 15 minutes. We waited 30 minutes for another table.

Chelsey & Morgan took excellent care of my party. We sat in front of Golden Buddha. Incredible atmosphere, cool music.
The Edamame Ravoli, Calamari Salad, Wagyu Beef Satay, Sea Bass, Aged Beef, Filet, Monkfish and more yummy dishes were perfection.
Always an amazing experience!
