The ambience and whole idea of this restaurant is amazing! I warn you now, it's expensive but the food is unreal, easily some of the best food i've ever tried, especially with all the dimmed lights and gigantic buddha; it's so atmospheric! If you're feeling tight then I wouldn't go there unless you wanted to go for a couple of... More

We had dinner at buddha bar one evening since we had heard a lot about it. I agree the ambience was awesome and the food was good but it was quite over-priced. They charged us so highly even for a bottle of still water. The staff was ok, but hardly knew english to communicate with is. I was quite disappointed.

Deep reds, dark woods, warm golden glow. Mystic. Exotic. Hypnotizing. Transcendental. It hits you all at once. Let the music sweep you into another place, another time. Relax. Walking into the Buddha Bar does all that....relaxes me. I've been through these doors many times and each time I feel as though I have never left. Sometimes it's just to hide... More

Enjoyed an amazing three course meal here on out last night in Paris! The food was faultless and service was brilliant. Great atmosphere throughout and enjoyed a cocktail in the bar afterwards. Would definitely revisit

We stopped by for dessert and settled for a drink as the wait staff were nowhere to be found. The interior was what expected kinda neat, maybe a little too dark to really see it all though. The bar staff was quick and friendly but unfortunately they were the only ones who were. I'd say pass on this place for... More
