Buddakan NY Ratings and Reviews
Almost 40min wait for a pre booked table on a Tuesday night. We were seated at a table in a hidden corner, space was dark and noisy and uncomfortably cold. Dishes we ordered were uninspiring and in lack of some seasoning nothing we would want to go back for
Highlight was the carrot cake at the end of the meal which was outstanding
For an asian fusion restaurant, I was not expecting much. The quality of the appetizers really blew me away. The cauliflower lolipops and edamame dumplings were delicious. The entrees were also very good. We ordered the sizzlings beef ribs, chili chicken, and the peking duck fried rice which were all pretty good in portion sizes as well.
Buddakan is a beautiful place, with very high ceilings and chandeliers. The food was also incredible, I would recommend the dim sum tasting menu for two (10 dim sums, $36). Our server was very professional and the service was overall great. It's a little on the noisy side because of the music. I would say it's better to go there as a group as the tables are so big.
The hostesses were extremely rude, unaccommodating, and condescending... which is probably due to their low pay rate. One of the managers (Alex I believe) attempted to recover the bad service & offered a comp drink but never delivered. Once we finally got seated our waitress was very courteous and informative however one of our proteins didn’t get to our table until we pointed it out. At this time my friend was completely finished with hers. We were under the impression it all came as it was done so we held out in saying anything but it seems it was forgotten all together. The kitchen blamed it on their ticket machine. Our waitress and her mgr however, were very gracious and took some items off the bill along with comp glasses of prosecco for the rough dinner service. Overall food and service was not worth the price. Plenty of other vibrant restaurant scenes with better food out there.
Mal sistema de reservas en el lugar, te hacen esperar en el lobby y las señoritas que te vienen a buscar son un tanto apáticas, más allá de esto el lugar es increíble y la comida también. Deberían esforzarse más en ella calidad del servicio de atención en general de su personal.
Buddakan-- still keeps it fresh after all these years. Service is incredible ---except for the front desk where always seems to be the weakest link- in getting you seated, probably a ploy to get you to order a cocktail. Table service however is amazing, with employees genuinely looking happy to work there.
Food is flat out fun and delicious.
Buddakan remains a New York icon that has not lost steam.
We had a girls trip to NY and decided to have dinner one evening at this fabulous restaurant after reading such incredible reviews. We got all dressed up and had a wonderful late dinner here. Out sever was amazing and so incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and make recommendations that we both loved. We took pictures on the staircase and the ambiance is amazingly beautiful!
Booked way in advance for our anniversary. However still really bad table given. The restaurant could have made a little bit of an effort knowing it was an anniversary dinner, nothing distinguished this from a regular casual meal. Since they're quite busy they dont pay attention to the little things that count, you're just another number or sale. Other than that they actually have good food.
