“Nice place”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

Beirut's hot night spot is made in the classic Buddha Bar style with grand staircases curving down to the dining area and the lounge is upstairs. Having gone with my wife and exhausted after a long day we chose to eat dinner and leave by 11.30 PM or so. At that time the place was filled with diners but I was told that it starts buzzing later. The food was good and the staff was pleasant and helpful. A good experience.

“Painfully Loud”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

The food is excellent but... the music was so loud that conversations and eating became very painful. I play in a Rock band myself and love loud music.
Buddha Bar was a few decibels short of causing bleeding ears. It hurt.
Amidst our repeated requests, two waiters and the manager showed zero interest to address our complaint although the place was almost empty.

“Better than Dubai, Paris, NY and Vegas.”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

I've toured them all, the two Tao's in NY and Vegas (called Tao overthrere). The one in Beirut is huge, great atmosphere, the best among all. While the others are more like a restaurant, the Beirut's Buddha bar is a restaurant/nightclub. Go there, you won't be disappointed.

“Great atmosphere, avarage food”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

Upper floor is fanastic, dinner menu is very limited and quite expensive (around 70 USD per person). Smoking is allowed in closed areas in Lebanon, so upper floor is quite foggy.
