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.

“Loud, Crowded and Cramped!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you have to see and be seen, this is the place... A younger and hip audience finds this an irresistible if pricey watering hole... Food is eclectic and actually quite good!

“Unhappy hour, at the Budda Bar.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Although we reserved a table out front, we were disappointed that their was only one table on the sidewalk all the other tables were with highchairs, around those usually friendly high tables. Their were only two chairs at the table so we
asked for a third for the dog.
The dog( with a service collar ) must be kept on the ground and no other chair was offered. Delray is mostly dog friendly, not Budda Bar. We left and went next door to City Oyster. Had a great time, at City Oyster. With the dog.

“love the daiquris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

I love Buddha Sky Bar for happy hour. The drinks are lovely, the food is great but the menu hasn't changed in ages. The prices are great during happy hour so we stop for one drink and leave. We include Buddha in our fly-by visits which are the best!

“Great Sushi, Great Drinks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our waiter was very friendly and offered many suggestions. The drinks are fantastic and we got there during their happy hour which extends to all tables, not just the bar. Most of the sushi was half off as well as other menu items. I was pleased to find nothing fishy, sashimi was how it should be, smell like clean water, taste like heaven! We sat outside right on the ave and it was a great Sunday evening. Highly recommend a stop in if you're in the mood for sushi and inventive drinks!

“DELICIOUS sushi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We went with another couple for dinner and the food was delicious. We sat downstairs next to the indoor tree, where the lighting was pretty terrible. They had a bright blue light which was blinding in some areas depending on where you were looking. The service was average. The food though was SO good. We all ordered a couple items and shared everything. The sushi was amazing, would definitely suggest it. The baked scallops and edamame were incredible, definitely suggest ordering them. The mushroom dumpling dim sum was also super good. We liked everything we got and wished we could have eaten more!
