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.

Three story restaurant where each story is like a different restaurant. The bar and tables on the street are like an open air sushi hut with lots of fun and action. The top floor has great views of the ocean and the avenue and is more of a date like atmosphere. The happy hour is great from 4-6 daily. 1/2... More

My Wife decided to reserve in this restaurant based on the recommendations from past guests, but for our surprise in a 11th Year Anniversary Dinner, this was not the best restaurant...

We had a very enjoyable time, starting with cocktails at the bar. Moved to a table and enjoyed a small meal with saki. Delicious white tuna, duck salad, & beef skewers. The yellowtail tar tar was a bit bland. Prompt service and good vibe.

We actually go here quite often but lately we have been trying to keep it to happy hour visits. Unless it's happy hour, the drinks and wines by the glass are just WAAAAAAY over priced and their wine selecction is poor and uninspired. it's composed of all corporate whateverness and at high prices to boot! Sometimes the sushi is execellent... More

Wandering around Delray Beach on Monday Oct 6th, trying to decide where to have dinner we came to the Buddha Restaurant and Sky bar. From the outside it didn't look like much but we are soooo glad we gave it a try. The food was excellent, the kimchee covered sea bass was "to die for". I've never had sea bass... More

By Far this is one of the best Happy Hours in Delray Beach. The hours are short but the food is delicious and so are the specialty drinks. Try the Shogun Assassin it is the best. Everyone there is very friendly and accommodating.

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.
