Nice food

Nice food, reasonable price and good service...highly recommended . I had fried calamari and drunken pork, both dishes were made with fresh ingredients and they were really tasty.

I have seen many establishments come and go at this location. But hopefully this restaurant will stick. The prices are typical city prices for a nicer restaurant. The selection varied and everything we tried was delicious. The small plate menu was interesting. You can order three for $18 on Monday through Thursday. We tried three and found them tasty and...

Buddachen is a surprisingly unique find in a sleepy section of Brookline with few other food options. I was only passing through the suburb for the evening and took advantage of the restaurant's "small plate special" where you could combine three entrees for the price of 2. It was definitely excessive food for one person (especially when combining with the... More

First off decor... from the outside looks horrible since its in a lobby of an apartment building. Once inside though the place is well decorated with a huge Budda, comfortable tables/booths and a pleasant atmosphere. The menu is great if you like chinese food or sushi. The chinese food is almost tapas style with dishes that are small and cost... More

We (four of us) happened upon this restaurant while walking in Brookline which is on the trolley line minutes from Boston.. The outside of the building is lovely but understated. When we went inside, we were happily surprised to find a lovely Asian themed decor complete with a large Budda statue (great for photos!) in the back of the restaurant.... More

I love the Salmon here and the Duck is just as great. The decor is very inviting and the prices are beyond reasonable. Great place to make a great 1st impression on a potential significant other without the massive crowds of the donwtown restaurant circuit...
