Buddha Bar is a gorgeous and exciting venue, thai inspired and dark. THe food is deliciousa nd is served quite quickly. However, the staff were a biot of a let down. Not all of them though. for example, there is a bar upstairs where I went afterwards for a drink with friends. We had just spent a few hundred Euros... More

For a restaurant of this calibre I was expecting everything to be perfect. When my sushi starter arrived on the same plate as my daughter's sushi main course I started wondering. We had to separate ourselves! Then medium rare steaks arrived decidedly over cooked and the staff went out of their way to convince us they were definitely medium rare... More

We used to live in Paris and were regulars at Buddha Bar where we have enjoyed many amazing nights with great food, drinks and service. We have always been aware that Buddha Bar comes at a premium price, but it has been worth it before. We have had several opportunities to visit lately, but had been put off by the... More

As tourists we had such a funny time trying to find this place. And we asked someone on the street, turns out he was a waiter! And then as he directed us to our table he was our waiter! So cute, so friendly wish I could remember his name. A friend of mine is a very picky eater and they... More

Its an extravagant and lavish dining experience. We were 8 of us and the bill was around 500 Euros. So you can easily expect a cost of 100 euros for 2. More than the food they serve it is the whole ambience because of which the experience is pretty amazing. Its a little risky for vegetarians as well. I being... More

This restaurant, bar and lounge in Paris is famous for a reason and it doesn't take a dummy to realize why as soon as you walk in! The decor is stunning and really puts Tao (in the US) to shame! Wow!

Buddha Bar is located in the same street as the US Embassy, right next to Crillon Hotel (being refurbished). This underground place is nice. Atmosphere is very trendy with nice people. Music is just perfect with an excellent DJ on the turntable. We came at Buddha Bar for the Sunday brunch. Variety and quality are fair enough. Unfortunately, service is... More
