We went for drinks at Buddha bar, so I did not taste the food, but the bar scene was very cool and had a great atmosphere. the drinks were good, the service was ok as it was quite slow, but all came in order. I will return to try the food, as the atmosphere and decor is great.

As we wandered on our way back from the museum district, we stumbled across this well know bar/restaurant brand. We spied their set lunch menu from outside & decided to give it a go. 2 courses & a drink/cocktail for £17... Pretty good for Knightsbridge! My boyfriend ordered a selection of starters off the a la carte so we could share all the courses together & avoid food envy scenario. Portions were large, beautifully presented & delicious.

Highly recommended.

Away from the crowd, delicious cocktails after the fuss of Knightbridge shops.. Kind waiters.. Very relaxing....Not exactly cheap but worth the detour...

Our table was booked for 7pm but we were an hour early and thankfully they had a table free. Loved the decor, yes was dark as others have written but not so dark that you can't see anything.
I had the 3 courses and a cocktail for £25 and I thought it was lovely. Mussels to start which were very nice, the beef in noodles was absolutley delicious and the macaroon was a good size, loads of chocolate sauce and two strawberrys.
I was very happy with everything and felt the staff gave us a good choice.
I wouldn't hestitate to come here again.

The original Paris Buddha Bar is now legendary so I was keen to try the London version. The decor is as expected although not amazing (the hanging crystal dragon bead chandeliers are stunning though). The prices are quite steep but the quality of the cocktails and, perhaps more surprisingly, the bar food was frankly excellent. The sushi was original and delicious with the pepper calamari being the best I have ever had anywhere. Frankie, our Italian mixologist, was skilled, friendly and unobtrusive and BB is now on my list of top bars in London.
