After a great show at the Opera Bastille or visiting museums, what could be more suitable for finding a certain type of inner balance :) than an immersion in the fascinating atmosphere of Buddha Bar Paris? Compared with the franchise in Budapest, where we remarked only the building, the original version of Paris remains as a must in the local... More

Went for lunch, restaurant was fairly empty so servers were very attentive. Food was amazing as were the champagne cocktails! Beautiful interior and looks like it would be great for a few drinks too. Excellent all round however it is expensive; don't eat here on a budget!

After reading reviews I thought we would pop along and soak up the atmosphere after a lovely meal we had had elsewhere to celebrate my husbands birthday. All I can say is it brought our celebrations to an abrupt halt! We walked in and the place had no atmosphere at all but against our better judgment we ordered drinks. After... More

After booking a weekend away in Paris I was told by many friends that having dinner at Buddah Bar was an absolute must!! Unfortunately I will not be saying the same to others. I booked a table for 2 people 6 weeks in advance and knew about asking for a table in the 'main room' I therefore requested this and... More

Everything is great, except the food. The place is famous worldwide for setting a trend, they don't disappoint, the music, the atmosphere, the service, the people and the location are all perfect, in general is a great place to start a crazy night. But the food is very disappointing. I ordered the curry menu and it came to a point... More

I didn't want to cloud my judgement before I visited Buddha Bar and so, I refrained from checking Tripadvisor reviews before I went. Two years ago, for some inexplicable reasons, I was refused entry and all these years, I wondered what the fuss is about Buddha Bar. I shared this opinion with my Parisian friend and she took me in... More

Visited Budda Bar this evening for dinner. It was the worst dinner I have ever had. It took us 20 minutes to get seated at our table. My party was extremely hungry so we ordered quickly. It took us 30 minutes for a waiter to take our order. Finally when he did the edamame and sushi that we ordered took... More

For our second time and after 6 year we decide to come back in this Mecca of the lounge music, and let me say that"s it!!!!!!! Rude staff, quality of food poor, attitude zero, knowhow of what they serve zero. Prices for my personal opinion are ok, if you go to eat in a restaurant in the heart of Paris... More

There on a Monday night, so place predictably empty. Tried many cocktails, which were excellent and with a nice twist. However, the "I am too cool for wasting my time serving you" guys behind the bar killed the entire experience: not a smile on their face from start to finish, arrogant attitude and a couple of rude responses did not...
