It was our first time in any Buddha Bar. We had a reservation and celebrated my fiance's birthday there. The entrance was already impressive (red-carpet and everything). The doorman was really nice. Staffs were really accommodating and was always smiling. Food were very delicious. The drinks were nicely done. It was a very light atmosphere. The ambiance was very romantic.... More

We had some nice cocktals on the terrasse here, just chilling there and looking at people. Pretty much like any other Buddha Bar.

I came with my partner for a meal and the sushi was amazing - really enjoyed all of the food except the calamari - just was a lot of it and very heavily fried. The sushi and the fish were excellent and really had a great experience here.
