Description: Buddha Sky Bar and Buddha Garden; an Asian concept with design and cuisine influences rooted in Chinese and Japanese interpretations. Buddha Sky Bar - A discrete third floor location with off the Avenue access creates an exclusive feel for guests upon arrival. A glass encased rooftop arboretum overlooks downtown Delray Beach. A walk through the kitchen leads to the outdoor "Chef's Table", perfect for private events. Asian accents complement the authenticity of the cuisine featuring Dim Sum, Sushi, & Wok selections from our 'from-scratch' kitchen. Buddha Garden - Recently opened in mid December, is an expansion of Buddha Sky Bar with the same menu and is now offering guests a brand new view: from the first floor. The long awaited debut of Buddha Sky Bar’s ambitious expansion is here and South Florida locals and visitors are flocking to the now three-story, 10,000 square foot Asian Fusion eatery set to a backdrop of breathtaking architectural design and exquisite décor. The three-part menu nods to different food preparations including an open sushi bar, a full kitchen as well as Delray Beach's first Binchotan charcoal grill. In addition to traditional menu items like Peking Style Duck it also features a great vegetarian selection. Buddha Sky and Buddha Garden features full dinner service at all seats. Happy Hours are available 7 days a week from 4pm - 6pm with 1/2 price selected dinner and drink menus. Join us on Sundays for 1/2 price Dim Sum. Reservations are recommended.

We came here on New Years Eve for the 7 o'clock seating with our family. I was really looking forward to eating here upon various recommendations. We sat upstairs in the covered section. The staff was very nice but the service was very slow, which was surprising as the restaurant was half full. The food was ok. Our steak was... More

Sit outside order one of their special cocktails (coconut daiquiri fi) and enjoy their fabulous shrimps or sushi or dumplings and enjoy the sunset at happy hour (till 6 pm in the winter, 7 pm in the summer)

it was our first visit and we will definitely be back; we opted for a less formal atmosphere outside because of the beautiful weather. The inside areas are beautiful, but dark and formal--including a 3rd level floor to ceiling window city panorama space, a ground floor seating area with cherry blossom tree and second floor private rooms with balconies, and...

Attended a cocktail party at the Buddha Sky Bar on the second floor last evening. Doors were open and we had a great view of all the activity on Atlantic Avenue. The appetizers were excellent...especially enjoyed the salmon skewers, the pot stickers and sushi. Wine was generously poured. Service was very good. I am planning to be back for dinner.

We delivered take-out through Delivery Dudes in Delray Beach. I have always had great food and exemplary service from Delivery Dudes and I was really saddened and surprised when the food from Buddha Sky Bar was delivered to my home in Highland Beach..... They not only delivered the wrong food, but everything was extremely cold and floating in grease.....The appetizer... More

I guess great value = higher price + excellent quality. Part of "you get what you pay for." So yes, it was worth the money (wish I could say that more often). Super view, nice strong drinks, beautifully prepared sushi. I did hear that their happy hour is a really great deal and a lot of fun.

Delicious Asian tapas and dinners. Tasty drinks with muddled fruit and fresh mint. We make it a point to eat here every time we visit Delray Beach.
