    Upon entering the restaurant, we were greeted with several ladies at the front desk. My first impression was that it was going to be a "factory" type of place. We were seated in the main room with the very long communal table. The atmosphere was fantastic! The food was exceptional! I dined with a friend, a personal chef, who gave the food rave reviews. The flavors were so unique. The service was far better than I would have expected. A must for all. What a marvelous space with outstanding food. Loved it all!!!

    Great place

    It's really amazing how a place could be this large and so busy and serve such wonderful hot food with such excellant service. The king crab shumai, peking duck, shrimp dumplings, steamed seabass rolls and steamed sole are all great. My wife and I have been here maybe 8 or 9 times and have never been disappointed.

    The physical plant alone is reason enough to go. The food and sevice were outstanding. The desserts...too die for. Not cheap, but in this case I say you get what you pay for.

    Go here for the appetizers and ambiance

    The ambiance at Buddakan is breathtaking, but beware of an echo in the lower level. We requested a quieter table, and were seated in a private room upstairs. The appetizers are a better value than the entrees. I would highly recommend the crab-corn fritters which were delicious and a very generous portion. We were also impressed with the cantonese spring rolls. As for entrees, we enjoyed the lobster-shrimp chow fun. There were only five shrimp in the sweet crispy shrimp entree, and it was average, at best. The vegetable fried rice was a fantastic, unique flavor. I would recommend ordering a lot of appetizers rather than entrees, but Buddakan is definitely a dining experience worth trying.

    Great scene and excellent food!

    For a place that could be extremely pretentious, it is very much not so. The staff--the waiters, bouncers, and bartenders--are extremely friendly, unlike your average New York hotspot. The food, particularly the appetizers (try the butternut squash dumplings), are yummy. I couldn't get a reservation so I ate in the bar lounge area, which turned out to be better cause the place gets a great crowd with a good mix of ages.

    Unexpectedly Excellent

    Expecting just another over the top Asian Palace, I was more than pleasantly surprised to have found so much more. Yes, the design stops you in your path but the food is what will keep you there and bring you back. Pork belly is the new foie gras. I can't remember feeling this way about anything in a long time. Not to mention edamame dumplings which absolutely melt in your mouth. If you need more convincing taste the shortrib which can be eaten with chopsticks (it melts). For a little bit of a side dish have the veggie side rice with curry fusion. Even if you don't like curry you'll love the fusion. I know that I will dream of eating this exact menu again! Happy eating.
