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.

Food was great. Atmosphere... Not so much

After getting off of the elevator I proceeded to walk into the seating area. As soon as the door opened there was a patron walking out screaming at another patron ("What the f*** did you say to my husband"). Clearly, she had a little too much drink. The food was amazing! The scallops are a must... read more

My hubby and I decided to try a new resti, so we drove over 40 min to try Buddha Sky Bar. ALL of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The inside of the resti was clean and had a cozy, sexy ambiance. I had a Lychee Saketini which was AMAZING! The Dim Sum was even better. Everything we ordered... More

I was very pleased with our waitress and the food. The music was on par for happy hour. I shared cod, sea bass and lamb chops on my visit. It was nice to sit outside in March and people watch as we enjoyed Sky Bar's refreshing seaweed. I would go back again, that's for sure.

My boyfriend and I had dinner here for a special occasion on a busy Friday night. Our server, Lilly, was by far the best part of our experience. She was attentive, helpful and a consummate professional. Everything else was underwhelming. We are both sushi lovers. The rolls at Buddha were ambitious and sounded exciting on paper, but failed in execution.... More

Uncooked garlic in the vegetable lettuce wraps? really?? that's just plain careless amateurish 101 home cooking. The menu is seriously confused. It's all over the place It tasted like the .shrimp used in a dish were frozen, Sushi selections are beyond clever yet the flavors are unbalanced, don't work together but sound very edgy and "hip". No more visits once... More

Great trendy looking place with indoor and outdoor seating. Staff is ultra friendly and the half off apps and drinks for happy hour is an incredible value. Sushi is like good wine in my opinion - worth every penny if its something you enjoy. Being able to try something at a less expensive price for happy hour that I can... More

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
