Description: Buddha Sky Bar and Buddha Garden; an Asian concept with design and cuisine influences rooted in Chinese and Japanese interpretations. Buddha Sky Bar - A discrete third floor location with off the Avenue access creates an exclusive feel for guests upon arrival. A glass encased rooftop arboretum overlooks downtown Delray Beach. A walk through the kitchen leads to the outdoor "Chef's Table", perfect for private events. Asian accents complement the authenticity of the cuisine featuring Dim Sum, Sushi, & Wok selections from our 'from-scratch' kitchen. Buddha Garden - Recently opened in mid December, is an expansion of Buddha Sky Bar with the same menu and is now offering guests a brand new view: from the first floor. The long awaited debut of Buddha Sky Bar’s ambitious expansion is here and South Florida locals and visitors are flocking to the now three-story, 10,000 square foot Asian Fusion eatery set to a backdrop of breathtaking architectural design and exquisite décor. The three-part menu nods to different food preparations including an open sushi bar, a full kitchen as well as Delray Beach's first Binchotan charcoal grill. In addition to traditional menu items like Peking Style Duck it also features a great vegetarian selection. Buddha Sky and Buddha Garden features full dinner service at all seats. Happy Hours are available 7 days a week from 4pm - 6pm with 1/2 price selected dinner and drink menus. Join us on Sundays for 1/2 price Dim Sum. Reservations are recommended.

“Great Sushi, Great Drinks!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our waiter was very friendly and offered many suggestions. The drinks are fantastic and we got there during their happy hour which extends to all tables, not just the bar. Most of the sushi was half off as well as other menu items. I was pleased to find nothing fishy, sashimi was how it should be, smell like clean water, taste like heaven! We sat outside right on the ave and it was a great Sunday evening. Highly recommend a stop in if you're in the mood for sushi and inventive drinks!

“DELICIOUS sushi!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We went with another couple for dinner and the food was delicious. We sat downstairs next to the indoor tree, where the lighting was pretty terrible. They had a bright blue light which was blinding in some areas depending on where you were looking. The service was average. The food though was SO good. We all ordered a couple items and shared everything. The sushi was amazing, would definitely suggest it. The baked scallops and edamame were incredible, definitely suggest ordering them. The mushroom dumpling dim sum was also super good. We liked everything we got and wished we could have eaten more!

“expensive but worth it....don't go hungry!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

This place has some of the best specialty cocktails and dim sum I have ever tasted, and the sushi is delicious and always fresh. With that being said, the prices are high and the portions very small. If you truly are looking for a light bite, this would be the place to go.

Damian B, General Manager at Buddha Sky Bar, responded to this review, June 30, 2013
It is great to hear that you enjoyed our cuisine and we appreciate your feedback. There are a couple of dishes that are smaller such as some of our delicate dim sum dishes, however there are a variety of dishes that a meant to be shared and have larger portions. In addition, we have a fabulous happy hour on Sunday through Thursday from 5pm-7pm and on Friday and Saturday from 5pm-6pm. It is 1/2 price off of 85% of our dinner menu and 1/2 off practically all of our drinks. This is located any where in the restaurant.
We would like to thank you again for your wonderful review and look forward to seeing you again!
