8,50 € for water?!! Are you kidding me? We didn't ASK for water flown in from Norway by a &#&$ reindeer in Gucci underpants, nevermind the carbon footprint. We just wanted some water while looking at the wine list. Overpriced inadequate portions of average food. Great decor, nice desserts, good tunes, but uncomfortably cold (even the waitress was cold).

The police had cordoned off the street so no traffic which actually made it more intimate just walking up to the entrance. I presume this was due to the recent awful attacks and they are more alert around high value establishments as the Sofitel is right opposite too. We stayed during the climate change forum that weekend and it was... More

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
