“Must try!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

WE had one night and our hotel concierge said, one night...Buddha Bar and he was so right! The music and decor alone set you up for a magical experience! Service was a little slow, but the food/drinks were amazing!

“Totally overrated”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Service was ATROCIOUS, the food incredibly unoriginal and mediocre, and the scene not at all as hopping as cracked up to be. Give this a skip!

“Very cool people watching”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We sat at the bar near the entrance and really enjoyed the people watching. Some really interesting groups pass through. We were here on New Year's Eve so everyone was dressed to the nines. The decor, music, and vibe are all very cool and swanky. A stop by the Buddha bar is definitely recommended.

“A place not to be missed”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

This place it has a special flair. The place were is located, the building which is impressive, the exotic atmosphere created by design, the music, friendly staff and especially the food (delicious sushi) all of these create you the desire to want to come back as soon as posible. So, don't miss Buddha Bar if you are around!

“Excellent food, service average.”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

My boyfriend said this was one of the best meals he has ever had in a restaurant, and I agree. The only let down was the service. Very busy, but not enough staff it seemed. It took a while for them to take our drinks order (20-30mins) and then for our food order. Apart from that, you get what you pay for, delicious food. Would definitely recommend and go back again.
