Good asian food but service a bit fussy and overpriced

The food here was good, but it was very expensive and not as good as we'd heard, so we were a bit disappointed. If you like a variety of haute Thai or Asian cuisine, sushi, and other

The food here is excellent, but trust me - just get a ton of appetizers to share and some drinks. It was amazing.

Went here while on vacation with my husband and 2 teenagers. Ordered calamari for appitizer - very salty. All 4 entries were too salty as well. It was expensive and very disappointing. We will not be going back and don't recommend it. So many better options in the same area.

Went with two teens and two adults. Overall OK experience - appetizers were great, entrees mixed - half delicious, half mediocre. Great attentive service. On the lower end of the restaurants in Condado that we ate in......

Budatai has a nice atmosphere and great food, a nice fusion of Asian and Latin cuisines, but not too pricey. The service was good. Recommend making reservations for dinner.

Last Friday night my partner and I took friends who were visiting from Chicago to Budtai for dinner. We are always greeted with a smile by our old friend and Manager Manny. We know it is going to be a great night. We love the entire staff but were pleased to have Jennifer take care of us that night. We... More
