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

Always great food and even better service. Servers always have the best suggestions and are on top of their game. I only wish that it was easier to get to from the borgata. Well worth the $40 cab ride there and back or I guess driving and parking. Definitely a must visit if you're actually staying in the area

As always a great time. Went on a Quiet night and my date had never been there. She is still raving about the food. "The bar left something to be desired". I ordered Jack and coke, and I am a regular drinker of this. If a shot was in it I was lucky. Less coke more of a drink with what the drink prices were. Otherwise a Very nice evening

Amanda, manager and our server, Jennifer were great. The only problem I had (second time) was the carbonation for soda, it was not working. My only complaint is that they have such a small bar. On the weekends forget about it, no room. People are eating at the bar and that's it. Can't get close to the bar to order a drink and if you are that lucky you have no place to stand inside the bar. If that's my only complaint and you can work with that, then go and you will enjoy.

We had an outstanding and delicious dinner as always at buddakan AC. Our waitress was fabulous and presented us with complementary Champagne flutes to celebrate our recent engagement and start our dinner with. She knew the menu well and was not a pushy nor non-existing waitress. The Pork dumplings were a great first course and the sea bass and aged beef were cooked to perfection (and plates were licked clean!). The zen donuts were a sweet finish. We will absolutely be back soon!!!! Thanks buddakan!

My first time to this restaurant and would recommend highly. Dined alone. Loved the scallops dish-so very flavorful! I ordered the curried cauliflower, which was full of delicious cashews. I had enough of both for my lunch the next day.

This was not my first time as always The food was great! My husband and I enjoyed our date night. I am not a huge sea food fan but the sea bass was so delicious cooked buttery and the Vegis were also a hit. Service was great the service was very helpful with choices. I am looking forward to returning a trying something new.

We were pleasantly surprised at how great the food was - especially the tempura corn!! Everything was delicious and we're picky eaters when it comes to asian food. The staff was great!! We would definitely go there next time we're in AC.

Atmosphere was wonderful, food was great service was ok. Our waiter was not overly friendly or attentive-we had to seek him/other waiters out to get refills of drinks. He did make suggestions which were helpful for food choices.

We always enjoy Buddakan-So much better on weekdays though- noise level lower & the food is slightly better when the kitchen isn't so busy ( They forgot the peanuts in my thai chicken salad this time...) Wasabi crusted filet is my favorite ! Great atmosphere.

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!
