On first entering this restaurant in a charming marina part of Dubai one is struck by a gigantic gold buddha in the far wall.

Fantastic view of the marina and 2 levels of seating & bar doesn't give the cramp feeling, if you are visiting the marina or JBR you should visit.

Had dinner at the Buddha Bar during multiple events and it's a great place. Nice people, great atmosphere. In short a place to be. Food is fine too, but price wise a bit over the top.

When visiting Dubai, if you would like to check the local scene, try the Buddha Bar in the beautiful Dubai Marina. You may see celebrities like Roger Federer and others. Food is excellent and music /atmosphere super trendy.

We've been quite a few times to the Buddha Bar for both dinner and drinks with friends. The menu is eclectic Asian, and the presentation and quality of the food has been superb on my visits. The ambiance and music are also amazing, although it can get a little loud later in the evenings, making romanic conversations challenging. This is... More
