Good food. Not too busy. The most memorable part of our meal was that we had quite a bit left on our plates and a gentleman seated near us leaned over and asked if we might be interested in sharing our food. He wanted to try what we were having. Needless to say, we pushed our plates over and he... More

I came here for an evening meal with a non-veggie friend. It was a weeknight and wasn't at all busy. After being served a complimentary pot of tea, we chose a selection of dishes (steak with Chinese broccoli, garlic prawns, and spinach) to share. The mock meats were absolutely delicious, as were the sauces and veggies. I find Chinese a... More

A vegetarian friend suggested that we eat at Buddha Bodai. But, as a non-vegetarian, I was skeptical but was willing to give it a chance. When I checked into my hotel in Wall Street, I happened to mention my dinner plans to the desk clerk. It turned out she is a vegetarian, had a menu to give me, and told... More

Buddha Bodai was definitely one of the best restaurants that we've eaten at! As a vegetarian, it was very nice to know that there was nothing I had to avoid. The sesame "chicken" was delicious, as were the dumplings and corn/spinach soup. The waiter even knew Hebrew!!! I would definitely recommend this hidden gem to vegetarians and non-vegetarians! I'm positive... More

Food was great! A lil bit more expensive than happy buddha.... But the waiter came to our table after half an hour we came in. I had to get up and go get him and he gave me a nasty attitude. Dont know if i will ever go back.

This is a great place for amazing vegetarian food. Whether you are a vegetarian or not, you will enjoy the food. I took 13 people for lunch, 4 were meat eaters, the rest ranged from completely veg to those who eat fish. Everyone was satisfied, everyone enjoyed everything from the diverse assortment of dim sum to the sumptuous entrees. We... More
