We had been wanting to visit Buddha Bar on our previous visits to Dubai, and finally got an opportunity on this visit. A very impressive and beautiful space, tastefully decorated; and sure to impress. We decided to stay for dinner, and although the food was delicious we were shocked at the prices, for what is really just very standard food.... More

Popped in a for a few glasses of wine with my wife when staying at Grosvenor House. Not the place to go if budget is an issue (USD25 glass of wine, USD50 for glass of champagne) - but the grandiose architecture and stylish vibe and clientele justify the high prices.

I had made a reservation for dinner at Buddha Bar to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday whilst we were in Dubai. As expected with Dubai (but even moreso at Buddha Bar), the menu is pricey and the drinks in particular, we had champagne for the occasion and probably blew the budget for the whole trip on that alone! Ok that's an... More

I had dinner and drinks here recently, the bar is of typical Asian design. There is a vast selection of food choices on the menu we had sushi and mains. I was really impressed with the food and the portion sizes. The bar is really good as well, there is always a good crowd of people. I would visit this... More

I can tell you, you will not find food quality like this anywhere in Dubai. They are value for money. You will love to go there again and again if you are a foodie. Located in Dubai Marina, this Restaurant is an excellent place for nightlife.

Had been there less than two years ago on a romantic getaway, went back with friends this time. Better to book ahead: our hotel concierge book us a table along the window for views of the marina, a tip I had retained from my last visit! This place get really busy late at night usually, but during Ramadan, book for... More

We went to Buddha Bar for a few drinks. We didn't really know what to expect, so we were quite overwhelmed when we entered the hall. The atmosphere was nothing like any other bar we have visited and the drinks were quite nice too. ;)

My wife and I really enjoyed dining here on a Friday evening. We received excellent and professional service from our waiter Gabriel who was very knowledgable and who gave us some great suggestions based on our preferences. Really enjoyed the wasabi calamari appetizer and the wok fried beef! The cocktails were very good too, especially the blue frog :) It's... More
