Description: Buddha Sky Bar and Buddha Garden; an Asian concept with design and cuisine...
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.

Why in the sky?

The food is very good and not the usual fare (pan Asian). The selection of sushi in very limited, although the rolls have a larger choice. The Korean ribs are great and the edamame risotto are both outstanding. The view (Sky) in towards the east so no sunset. The same kitchen serves the sister... read more

I can not even begin to explain how horrible our night was at this restaurant. I have been here two times in the past with my parents and it was fantastic. This visit was far from that. The location and restaurant itself is very nice. However, the service is the worst I have ever had. We ordered edamame and three... More

This place was selected by business associates and what a great place this was. We were seated upstairs, which is beautifully decorated. The menu has a nice assortment of wines and drinks. The appetizers, main courses and dessert were all artfully prepared and very delicious! Our server was very attentive to our needs and I enjoyed this place thoroughly! Highly... More

First and last time. It might be good for drinks but not to eat. The service which was very good but the food was among the worst we ever had. The sushi had nothing to do with the name as the egg roll. The meat in the Pekin duck was OK but the cucumber must have been cut 3 days... More

We really enjoy this restaurant. It has some terrific food--don't miss the mushroom noodles, Korean bbq ribs, Atlantic Avenue roll and edamame. They also have fun cocktails and sake choices.

We were there for a party. Only two bartenders on the open bar for 100 people or more. Long lines. Food ran out on the buffet table after a few minutes and was not replaced. Worst of all, the salmon was overcooked and was not fresh (bad smell). NIce waitstaff.

The Early Bird specially priced drinks and sushi are a great deal. The main menu is also very good, and the service and atmosphere are warm and inviting

I came to Buddha Sky Bar on New Years Eve for a drink with my boyfriend. The atmosphere is great and I'm sure the food is as well, but we did not eat there. My issue was I was charged double for my drinks on New Years Eve and have yet to speak with an actual manager about it. Every... More
