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.

Very good starters and mains on the menu. We sampled the sushi and edamame, with saki of course. Service was friendly and attentive, and prices are reasonable. Go for the Happy Hour - same food, 1/2 price, quieter. What's the catch?

Had a 5:15 reservation and was pleasantly surprised that it is happy hour until 6:00 for food and drinks! We had edamame, stuffed scallops, vege spring rolls, Buddha roll and chicken dumplings. Be warned the edamame is covered is spicy powder and my lips are still burning! All was super, pretty and delicious! Gus was an amazing server, ask for... More

Go! Special spot, whether the occasion is a date, business, or a family gathering Buddha has the freshest sushi in South Florida and can be compared to the likes of Zuma in Miami Beach. If you consider yourself a 'sushi snob' this place is for you;) Service is impeccable and the waitstaff has an intense knowledge of all food and... More

Being in a beach town you know it may not be cheap, but tapas style menu will empty your pockets fast. Food was okay but not worth the price.

I had the pleasure of dining at Buddha Sky Bar the other night. A lovely atmosphere with excellent views. Before I get to the food, the service was excellent. We started with Dim Sum that was excellent. Shrimp and spicy pork. The Tuna sashimi was the best I ever had. The sushi rolls were perfect,fresh and large. A must try... More

Del Ray Beach, Fl. is a fun place to bar/restaurant hop. Buddha Sky Bar, with its brightly- designed décor, entices you to pull up a stool and take advantage of the unique appetizers and drinks offered at their very reasonable happy hour prices (The pot-stickers were out of this world). Located on Atlantic Ave, along the tracks, this locale is... More

I have passed this place several times while walking along Atlantic Avenue and finally decided to give it a try. I went for the happy hour. There was a good selection of top shelf liquor - including Russian Standard vodka - nice. My party of four ordered six appetizers including sushi rolls, shrimp, vegetable tempura, shu mai and an interesting... More

With so many choices on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach, it is sometimes hard to choose where to go! But now I go to Buddha Sky whenever I can, especially during Happy Hour! They have an amazingly large happy hour menu and great drink specials! I highly recommend their white truffle hamachi roll and their edamame! Great place to go... More

We went to this place for happy hour, based on recommendations from several of the locals, and we really enjoyed ourselves. Went straight up to the third floor, which was beautiful. The place was very busy but we were greeted graciously, found two spots at the bar, and were served immediately. The bartenders, Andrea and Joe, were super friendly and... More

I have been to this restaurant several times already, and it's amazing. Nestled in the heart of downtown Delray (on Atlantic Avenue), it's a great location! It's a beautiful restaurant which doesn't look any different from the other restaurants on the strip (they are all done quite nicely and are all clean, etc.), but once you get right in through...
