I had heard so much about this restaurant and I was not dissappointed. It is what I would describe as a "WOW" experience ! The decor and architecture is stunning and equally the service is exceptional. Our table wasn't ready when we arrived so we sat at the bar and had a drink before going to our table. Our meal was delicious, and overall the night was memorable in a fabulous city like NYC, but so so cold in Dec and Jan!
Its worth booking online through "Open Table".

Buddakan is an attraction more than a restaurant. the place is super cool! I love it! The food is very particular but mostly you go for the atmosphere, the architecture and the location (meatpacking core). The prices are very expensive though

We went to Buddakan after hearing rave reviews on the place. Our meal was delicious, and the people watching was also great. Service was good, and their deserts are definitely worth a try!!

Came here with a group of work colleagues one night, and we were NOT disappointed. The drinks were DELICIOUS, the lobster egg roll appetizer was amazing, and my duck dish was out of this world. Definitely pricey, but worth every dime! I did think the ladies room was strange, two tiny sinks with no counter for your handbag.
