The pre packaged assembly line sushi food is not fresh and the fish is thinly sliced. Food is cafeteria priced quality at top restaurant prices. BB relies on a big marketing machine that is failing in the execution.Service is not even worth mentioning. Staff knows that if you came in that you are a tourist that has been trapped. Abort...

We went there as a couple because we were in the neighborhood, not much planning. Atmosphere is nice and food tastes good but unfortunately that's all there is to it. Talking as someone who is used to pay quite a bit for good restaurants in Paris, I can tell you this place is EXTREMELY OVERPRICED for what you get, the... More

How does the management of Buddha Bar get away with such poor food The king crab salad, tuna tartar, pork spare ribs, black cod and even the rice was pathetic. Its... More

If the Buddha Bar wants to attract people it needs to avoid cute "mice" or "souris" or "topi" running around the feet off the customers sa of today

I loved this place for drinks. But we found it a little steep for the food. The decor was super, good music and welcoming wait staff. Worth a go.

Went to celebrate my 60th Birthday. We had a little trouble finding the Buddha-Bar Restaurant. The Buddha-Bar was surprising - The Music was Fabulous (of course); The Food & Cocktails/Wine better than expected. BUT the SERVICE was lacking ....... we arrived 15mins early &, to our surprise, no-one would seat us (Excuse - Table wasn't Ready ... we later worked... More

We have been fans of the eclectic Buddha Bar soundtracks, and decided to visit as it had a place in our lives. The restaurant is certainly beautiful, and it has a presence you won't forget, especially after descending down the spiral staircase into the main dining room. Though it was empty and early, we were seated on the far outskirts... More
