“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Went there to a dinner with friends yesterday. From the greeting - not friendly, almost 'bothered'- to the service: average at best. Everybody agreed that food what way salty, over-cooked.
Considering the expectation: a disappointment.

“Delicious Asian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Went here during our vacation in Puerto Rico. We had a nice view of the street and ocean from our table. I ordered the lo mein and my husband ordered the shrimp fried rice. We were served a potato and red pepper soup before our meal that was tasty. I ordered the ashfordisiac drink which was really good. Everything is a bit over priced, just like everything else in Puerto Rico. Our meals were delicious and I would definitely good back if we went back to Puerto Rico.

“Nice view during the day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Budatai is ok if you are staging at the Condado area. There are better rest with the same type of food, such as Santaella and Papillon at the Marriot Courtyard. Service is very good and they have a nice wine list, but the food is average, the best we tried were the foie gras and the duck croquettes.

“Great brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Came here for brunch with a friend, and the food was quite good- asian-y and yet egg-y. And had a delicious champagne based mojito. Would recommend.
