The place is nicely decorated, with a massive buddha overlooking the dining area. The food was exquisite and very well presented. Afterwards I headed to the bar offering a wide selection of drinks to choose from.

Description
The first «Buddha-Bar» in the world was opened in 1996 in Paris. The concept and the idea belong to Raymond Visan. Until now the glamorous Buddha’s residence not only hasn’t lost its popularity but got brilliant twins in the largest cities of the world: Dubai, Beirut, Cairo. In 2008 «Buddha-Bar» appeared in Kiev. Permanent customers of «Buddha-Bar», no matter in what part of the world it is, are Rod Stewart, Madonna, Johnny Depp, Cameron Dias, Jennifer Lopez and many other world-known celebrities. In 2008 «Buddha-Bar» lounge-restaurants opened their doors for guests not only in Kiev, but also in Prague, London and Jakarta. In every country the interior of «Buddha-Bar» always meets some particular conditions: presence of a huge Buddha’s statue, original chandeliers and marvelous artifacts. The cuisine also corresponds to the general standard which is Asian Fusion tune. Though the cuisine of «Buddha-bar» in Kiev is adapted for Europe – it is less spicy.
