Buddakan NY Ratings and Reviews

Food was great, wait staff very knowledgable, friendly and appeared to really like what they are doing
Pork bellies were great and the Singapore was a better version of the original messy task of separating crab meat from crab, covered in sauce.

Upscale modern Chinese in a stunning and energetic setting.
Food-wise, a truly stimulating experience not to be missed.
The main downside for me is that the even with a reservation you are often asked to wait at the bar (which is great) and then you have to wait for a server to pick you up and bring you to the table. On multiple occasions, this led to long waits and the general sensation of being not taken care of properly by the staff.
Service at the table has varied from amazing (knowledgeable friendly staff) to pretty bad (monosyllabic answers from the server to very legitimate requests).

I returned to Buddakan with a group of friends after a long hiatus and it was ever better than I remembered! The ambience, the food, the drinks and the service are all top notch. The restaurant experience was even better this time than I remembered from my last visit and I couldn't have been more thrilled to bring my friends to celebrate my birthday in such a lively environment. The Atlantic Black Cod was OUTSTANDING and possibly the best fish dish I've ever had in my life!
Thank you for making our NYC birthday trip so memorable!

We've been a few times now and what is very annoying is that no matter if you're on time, late or early for your reservations they ask you to get a drink and wait in the very noisy bar Tobe seated. Then after we were seated we ordered apps and entrees and didn't receive our entrees for an hour! No one really checked on us in the meantime, explained the delay or apologized. This was on a Tuesday, so no real reason for the delay.

Waiting over 30 mins for table even though booked a month ago. First table was so close to bar asked to be moved. Service was way too quick felt we were at a fast food store rather than an expensive restaurant. And yes it was expensive. No value for money. Not likely to recommend. Found other NYC restaurants of better quality and they were 5 star and acted 5 star

Was situation off the main dinning room at the secondary bar in the basement. Food is below average compare to most of the Chinese cuisine or fusion Asian food. The wide noodle tastes horrible and wet. The edamame dumpling is not that tasty. The vegetarian dishes is nothing special. The only dish I like was the black cod.

Loved the entire experience at Buddakan! We took our 3 teenagers there for dinner. They definitely love and appreciate a good meal. Dinner was outstanding. Veronique was our server and gave us some excellent recommendations. Would absolutely return! Best dinner in NYC to date and we are regulars in the city.

Great energy and clearly a hip place to dine. Our seating was a bit cramped but not uncomfortable to the extent that we would ask to be re-seated. The menu is quite diverse and we were able to taste quite a number of dishes with their tasting menu. Definitely a must try!

From the staff to the food this was hands down one of the best dining experiences I have had in quite some time. I will highly recommend to anyone living in or visiting NY to go to Buddakan for a truly classy and all around superior/chic NY night out. It's a can't miss!!
