food was fantastic and the drinks were good, pretty standard prices for a restaurant of that standard. Not overly expensive however the did find the men at the bar seem to be all the prowl - little pervy !

After traveling for nearly 20 hours the Buddha Bar was the perfect spot to unwind with beat of house and chill music. We found a great lounge area in the bar area where we had top notch cocktails. After watching the crowds begin to arrive for Friday night festivities and many drunken American businessmen/ex-pats, we ordered up a wonderful late... More

Many choices these days in Dubai, but the Buddha bar still stands out as a beautiful setting, great food and service. Like most places in this city of greed the prices are beyond ridiculous, hopefully this will change as the next crash looms....

Buddha Bar already has a great name in Dubai, but never ceases to amaze me. Staff is great, service a tad slow when busy but fully understandable. Guys in the bar area are so good at remembering faces and what they usually order, making it a lovely place to come back. Every time.
