Buddakan NY Ratings and Reviews

Buddakan remains one of the most beautiful restaurants anywhere. The food is terrific, the service even better, and the décor just amazing. It's my go-to place anytime I want to impress and please a visitor to NYC. It's not cheap, but by today's standards, you get your money's worth and more. Ask to sit in the Main Dining Room or the Library.

The ambiance is amazing. In essence this is what you pay for. The service is also great. The servers and greeters are nice. The food was just ok to me. We had the lamb, lobster fried rice, lobster egg rolls and broken chili chicken. I honestly wasn't crazy about any of it and felt it didn't justify the price tag. I would have no qualms getting some cheap Chinese take out instead and save about $150. Is it a great one time place to visit. Absolutely. But I probably wouldn't go back again.

Abysmal...like eating in a nightclub..really loud music with diners all shouting at each other to be heard. Food good but not hot enough.
Miserable experience before you even get to your table..you check in and are then left in limbo in a holding area pending someone bothering to come and find you.

Buddakan is definitely a good place to go with friends to get some drinks. Really good food, the waitress was really nice and super friendly. Drinks were well made and the restaurant has a good atmosphere. Would return without a doubt!

Nice environment but very dark and loud. Food was OK but service was pushy to the point of offensive...and it was way way overpriced. Stupid overpriced. We went for a special occasion and wish we hadn't. Not recommended.

We were a group of 6 and the waiter recommended the banquet - I would not advise anyone to order the banquet, just focus on the favourites and this should be enough. Unless of course your group consists of hungry ahtletic young people under 25
Restaurant is feeling a bit jaded now, food and service not what is was in it's sex and the city heydays..

Hadn't been to budakan in a couple of years. So glad I decided to give it another chance. The bartender (forgot her name). Was very courteous and friendly. The best I have encounter in a long time. Our server was very efficient and took great care to give us time when we weren't ready to order and yet be prompt and available when we needed her. Food was great and so was the atmosphere

Although the seating policy states that requests will try to be honored but no guarantees, Buddakan really does try to seat diners where they prefer. And once seated, expect wonderful service, great cocktails, tasty dishes and lovely ambiance. The restaurant has done a good job of maintaining an impressive level of services even though it is no longer the new kid on the block. We have never been anything other than pleased.

Drinks are not consistent at all. Several of them we could not even drink. It really depends on the bartender...At $16 a drink, it was quite disappointing. As for the food, always delicious. I love the vibe here. They just need get some more consistency and they would be awesome!

It Was a little bit stressful during the dinner. IT felt like they wanted to get rid of us as soon as the last bite Was finished. That Was a little bit annoying... But the food Was insanely good and IT Was a really nice and fancy restaurant. IF you want a pieceful dinner this is not the place because they played loud music.

This was my husband's first time to Buddakhan NYC and I was excited for him to try it as we have tried the one in Philly before. He definitely enjoyed the NYC location. He felt that even the drinks we well made which is a big deal as he is picky about his drinks :-)
