The setting is breath taking and the atmosphere is buzzing but the food is not great. The quality of the ingredients were not that fresh. The food in the London branch is better but not the decor. I think for the price you are paying, the food should be outstanding. The staff was really helpful though.

Came here this month as we decided against their NYE menu and tried Sass instead. BIG mistake! Buddha never fails to deliver in every level. Ambiance is cool trendy and chic. Decor is spectacular. Service is impeccable. Food is perfection. I will never venture anywhere else based on the fact in 8 visits here I have never had a problem.... More

Great in winter as it's cozy, the cocktails , champagnes and wines are good. We ate in the restaurants , however the food ( asiatic) was not that good. Highly recommended to go for a cocktail downstairs.

When we chose to sit outside for drinks they did not lower the standard of environment at the Buddha bar. We were seated in a well decorated and heated outdoor area, nibbles and wine were flowing and a great night was had by all. My only criticism would be - and I'm being picky - is that they've basically doubled... More

Had a drink downstairs in nice surroundings. Good food and service upstairs despite it only seems to be tourists coming there.

Late evening, not too crowded, nevertheless we had to wait 20 mins before being served. Maybe the staff were tired, I don't know. We ordered three cocktails and were very disappointed, they tasted like fresh water. Sticky stand up bar (but that's normal), sticky table (shouldn't be). Stylish, but we expected more.
