It's the second time I try a Buddha Bar restaurant, and once again I confirm my pleasure to dine in such places. The choice is wide, including Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Indonesian food. All accompanied by an impressive wine list. I recommend you to try one of the Bento menu, with which you can try a bit of everything at a reasonable price.

First I want to say that I read some other reviews that almost persuaded us not to hit the Buddha Bar for dinner. They mentioned that the staff was rude - IT IS COMPLETELY THE OPPOSITE. Unless they hired all new staff since the reviews were written, these reviews were completely false. The staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. We were welcomed at the door, our coats were taken, we were escorted to our table, the waitress promptly and with a big smile came over to see if we had questions or wanted to order anything right away. Her English was great. Someone in our party had a sore throat and ordered a "hot toady". It was delicious and the bartender came over later to make sure it was good and was proud of his concoction. The food was good, not great, but very good. The ambiance is just what you would expect from a Buddha Bar and was perfect for our evening. After, we went upstairs to have a drink and soak in the coolness, but it must have been too early as it was rather dead and the staff was not as effusively friendly as downstairs. Still had some interesting drinks, heard some great tunes and left with a smile on our faces and happy bellies.

Nice ambiance, good but not outstanding Asian fusion food, like in other Buddha Bars around the world. We enjoyed great live music, and their cocktails upstairs after dinner a lot.

The signature cocktails are well worth trying. The bartenders are very knowledgeable and could discuss different types of gins and tonics and how they work together in detail.

Though the staff is friendly, but they kept forgetting our requests, the food was late, sake selection not important! the dishes and desserts were good (as any buddha bar restaurant) venue is small, so better to book...
The atmosphere for drinks at the upper floor is better! Cocktails are amazing, and a live saxophonist was playing good tunes along with the dj!
