The Buddha Sky Bar is in the middle of expanding to the street level premise below them. They are going to call it the Buddha Garden and it is due to open in December.
The original however is situated adjacent to the railroad track off of the main Atlantic Avenue. You walk perhaps 20 yards down the side road to be greeted in an entranceway, that once passed, allows you to use either steps or an elevator to get to the Sky Bar. Anywhere but Delray and the title would be firmly ironic since it is only the 3rd floor, but Delray is so flat and with such low level buildings that you actually do feel quite high up.
The staff were mostly Asian, with our delightful waitress coming from Taipei. We ordered some regular old pinot grigio from a fairly limited wine selection. To be fair the sake list and beer list was more comprehensive and the cocktails looked very interesting.
Food comes from mainly Japanese or Chinese roots and I wished that we had had more people to try some of the delicious looking dumplings. The sushi roll we ordered was very good but although the Ceviche grouper was very fresh I felt that they had gone a fraction overboard on the lime. The Blood Orange Beef and Brocallini (sweet and spicy) and the beef with peppers and onions were both very good. We all enjoyed the food and the rice both fried and boiled was fine.
I would rate the food as average for this type of restaurant (on a par with P F Changs) but the atmosphere, service and location push it higher for me. This would be a fun place with or without food and the crowd is definitely younger than in many of the Delray Restaurants (not a high bar to beat I admit), and only you can judge if that is good or bad! Anyway overall a fun experience that we shall probably repeat.
