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.

Buddakan - Atlantic City Ratings and Reviews
The food here was EXCELLENT!! I was skeptical at first because I am a creature of habit & was unsure after looking at the menu online but was Wowed when I saw the presentation & the portions. Very unique spin on ingredients, nice price fix options, and very easy about modifications. I would strongly recommend it. I would go out of my way to eat there again.
Reservations on a Saturday night were honored exactly at time specified in reservation. Server was excellent, attentive but not overly. He was able to answer any questions we had about the menu. Food was excellent,good music,nice vibe. Would definitely go back.
Would have been nice to know the main Restaurant was bought out for a private party! Not sure why we weren’t informed when the reservation was confirmed. We had requested a booth in the dining room? We were sat upstairs and could hear the company’s awards, and celebration. We certainly would have come on another night.
This was my second visit to this location. Service was great! They were there when you needed them and not when you didn’t. Very knowledgeable and offered suggestions based on what they liked and what was popular. It was quiet although it was an earlier reservation and not busy. Food was spot on! So delicious! I liked the family style servings so we could share. The server also mentioned adding a dumpling so that we didn’t have to decide who got the third one. Great idea since it would have been a fight. Drinks, apps, meals, and dessert were all so good. Can’t wait to go back!
Food. Service. Setting. All was absolutely beyond what I imagined. With everything in the area, their fixed menu option is at an amazing price point. This will be a must go to place every time I come over for vacation now. My mind was blown. And it easy isnt blown.
We’ve driven down to AC several times to eat at this Buddhakan. I think it’s even better than NYC. Service is good and fast. Very busy place but staff do not seem overwhelmed. They handle the crowd and multiple orders well. Awesome place to celebrate special occasions. Food always amazing. Kimchi Beef Fried Rice and Oxtail dumplings were standout! Drinks were great as well! We celebrated my son’s 23rd Bday and we were pleased as always. Thank you- we had a great time and will definitely return!
we were a bit disappointed this time. dinner was rushed. we did the dining plan #1. price fix. as soon as our drinks came they brought all of the appetizers. then as soon as those were done, they brought all of the entrees. the whole dinner was over in an hour. for all 8 of us.
the table was not big enough. the plates are so big, they don't fit on the table.
I thought the portions were a little smaller than normal as well.
this is the 8th or 9th time we have eaten here, and most times with a large group off the price fixe menu
We always have a great meal here. Our server suggested my fiance and I try the Chef's Tasting menu which highlighted the most popular dishes at the restaurant. It was absolutely delicious from the appetizer to the dessert. I would highly recommend it if it is offered. It's a great value as well. If you are in Atlantic City, this is a perfect date night spot. Great food, impeccable service, romantic atmosphere.
This is my favorite restaurant for a handful of reasons, the service is always wonderful, the decor is beautiful, the atmosphere is always great..even though it’s an open lay out still very intimate experience, the food is unbelievable (although I always get the same thing, the edamame ravioli & vegetable fried rice it’s always on point) I come to Atlantic City 2-3 times a year and every time I do this is my favorite spot to have a beautiful romantic dinner with my husband thank you for always giving me an amazing experience
.The staff and service were professional and delightful.
Would have perhaps liked a choice of seating.There were a variety of menu selections and the server was knowledgeable and helpful in answering our questions.The meal was delightful from appetizer to dessert and we would return.
