Love this trendy restaurant within walking distance from Dream Hotel. The food is amazing. They make a jasmine tea flavored ice cream that is to die for!

“Buddakan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Seriously good Asian fusion. Food is beautifully presented, fresh and very clean. The service is first class and although this restaurant is in the more expensive range, it is worth every dollar.

“Upscale version of buddha bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

I was impressed . As i enter rhe hostess greated me with so much respect . I felit like being at a modern version of what seems to be a buddhist temple . (Even hough im a strong opposer of exploiting peoples faith into a bar which might offend the buddist people )

The food itself was good and satisfyint to say the least . U will however enjoy the attention to details rhe place has

“Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

A very busy restaurant suited for group dining in main hall and more intimate dining on the mezzanine level.
Cocktail bar was also a nice touch as we arrived a little early. Our table was available at the appointed time.
Food was excellent and staff were very professional explaining each course as it was presented.
The mezzanine area was a little dark which made reading the menu difficult however this was a minor issue.
overall a great dining experience
