Having looked forward to visiting Buddha bar for many years we were disappointed that the fabulous music was hardly present as very background and the food was, sorry to say, average.

It is still one of the best places in Paris to listen to refined world music while enjoying a nice cocktail. The food is also great. We enjoyed a marvellous night.

A sort of trendy place in Paris, where people like to see and to be seen at late night. Apart from it, nothing exciting. Neither the too lengthy service nor the cosiness of the sofas. We took 2 cups of champagne and paid for it about 42 Euros if I remember well. For the price we got few olives as... More

I am a junkie for the music--dinner and dance mixes, so my preference and most recent visit was just for cocktails. I have eaten here, but it has been several years ago, before it became so popular, and the food was expensive, but the quality was good and the service excellent.

Absolutely terrible food. I love Asian food but this was terrible experience. Worst of the worst. Rise was overcooked. Pork ribs were undercooked and and fried noodles with mushrooms were tasteless. Only wine for 150 EUR were good

One dose not need to have taste for fusion or japan sushi to love this one, everything is good on the menu, have been there often and even though there is nothing French about it, I still would not want to miss it when in Paris.

I really expected much more. The restaurant was dark, quiet and almost empty when I came there on a Thursday night. I appreciated the design and friendly staff, but the food was just average, as opposed to the prices ;) A disappointment.

Great place to go with friends and sip champagne. Eclectic environment, velvet club chairs and couches, 3 stories high, every language is spoken. Super place!

We are Buddah Bar music fans! To us, part of the culinary experience is not just the food, but the atmosphere. There are many great restaurants with fabulous food, but if they don't have music and all you can hear is the din of other diners, that doesn't do it for us! Also, if a restaurant's lighting isn't right (i.e.... More
