“had an awesome event in Buddha bar restuarant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

we had my sister's birthday party in buddha-bar Budapest. i dont have to say how beautiful and extra ordinary is the place it self, we started our party in the sky bar and the manager was kind enough to make all our wishes happen. we were so satisfy, the staff were very helpful and nice.

the food is great and the chef is a talented chef i would give 6 stars if i could :)

i also have some romantic time with my fiance, the place is elegant and romantic... i loved it so much! the manager made sure to make my sister's birthday even more special, i would love to do dinner parties there in the future. i also heard a friend of mine loved it so much that would like to through her brother's engagement party there:)

over all experience was amazing, good drinks, live DJ , and almost an exclusive party of our own, what could we ask more?

i would like to thank the manager Mr Andras Lexa and all of the staff from here. thanks for the wonderful night..

“Divine dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Buddha Bar truly lives up to its reputation, with relaxing ambience, courteous service and very tasty fusion cuisine. We tried their dinner bento and sushi bento menu at 6800 & 7900 Huff which include a wide variety of sushi, curry, stir fry and desert. If you want a fine dining experience with wonderful food, it's really worth it.

“One of the best in Budapest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

We've been living in Budapest for some years, and visited a lot of places. This restaurant has given us one of the best meals so far. The only negative thing is that it can be a little (too) noisy sometimes. I wish the staff could tell people to be a bit more quiet, or to reduce the volume of the music (there's nothing wrong with the music selection by the way) so that it would be possible not only for large and loud groups to have a decent conversation.

“Very memorable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Atmosphere was second to none. A funky dark setting, with ample space between tables, high ceilings, and great decor.

Agree with the review below that it was unnecessary for the hostess to direct us to the bar first, as we would far rather have preferred to be taken straight to our table.

We had few rolls of sushi and a vegetable thai green curry. The sushi rolls were spicy tuna, rainbow roll (crab meal inside, wrapped in salmon and tuna), and salmon and avocado roll. As an avid sushi fan in London, I was keen to see the quality of rolls here, and was not disappointed. The fish was fresh and rice done well - however it was the design of the rolls that was the most impressive and the creativity that was displayed in both look and taste. You can see some examples in the photos on tripadvisor.

Fairly pricey though, certainly for Budapest, so I'd say you are looking at spending around £75 for 2, definitely if you want wine too.

Overall, would wholeheartedly recommend, due to inventive dishes and one of the most atmospheric restaurants we have been to. A must for sushi fans

“Beautiful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

This may have been one of my best restaurant experiences ever. The sushi was great. The waiters were very sharp and attentative. The mellow lighting, the stunning Buddha statue, the décor, the relaxing music, comfortable seating, it was all perfect. The bar option upstairs was also great. Highly recommended.
