We where staying at La Concha right across the street in Condado and were trying to find a nice place for dinner. While looking on TA on our phone we look up and see Budatai on a second floor above a retail space. There were huge windows and they were just cleaning a table right at the window. I said.......

We usually try to not go to the same place twice on a vacation. But this place kept calling us back. You must order the pork dumplings and the ceviche!! The drinks are a bit small and pricey.

My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant on our trip. I am more of the foodie and ordered enough to share with the young couple sitting next to us. Everything was great- from the food, to the drinks, to the service and the ambiance. This is a definite must do when in San Juan.

Every time we go to Puerto Rico we must go to Butatai. The food is a mix of Puerto Rican and Asian cuisine. Every time we go there the menu changes. We love the pork dumplings and the chicken lo mein Very unusual and delicious food. The decor is warm and comfortable. Go- you won't be disappointed!

People have been telling me about this restaurant for months now and I just hadn't spent enough time in San Juan to give the restaurant a try. I was traveling alone on this trip and perhaps would have enjoyed it more with friends to dine with but I still tried a few dishes. I think this is the type of... More

Is the best choice if you’re looking for savory food and an excellent environment – even if it is on the costlier side. I enjoy the word savory and would imagine that the Buddha loves it as well. Located on the 2nd floor at the building across from La Ventana Al Mar (grass park field and ocean view). As you... More

The food is very interesting. It is a combination of puertorrican and oriental tastes. The restaurant is a little bit rundown. Needs remodeling. The service was good
