Success! Thanks for posting your review of Buddakan. You’ve done the world some good today.

Editorial review from Citysearch

I find Buddakan to be overrated and overpriced. The food is good but its not like you can't get good food at a million other places in Philly. Skip this one.

what happened to Buddakan??

I came here to celebrate my very good friend's upcoming wedding. It was a few days away, and we wanted to make sure she was at a place she loved, so she brought us to Buddakan, because this is where she met her fiancee. He was working that night, but besides his service, everything else was horrible. We saw managers going to tables all around us, but never came by to say hello or to see how we were. I was really sur... view more

I still love this place

I've been a fan of this place for years. Everything they serve is absolutely delicious and they never disappoint. The siignature drinks are creative and delish. I had my bachelorette dinner here some years back and there was a mishap with the one of the guests and her getting sick. All of the staff was unbelievably accommodating and gracious, kudos to them.

Hair in Food

Made reservations for a large party of 20 on July 20. Sat at the large table in front of the Budda. Everything was going well until one of the guest found hair in his food. That was totally unsavory and shocking. Told the wait staff and they called over the manager over. We did not get the manager's name, but he was slender with a shorn hair style and was wearing a pink tie that night. He came over and did not a... view more

Great night all around

My friends and I went to Buddakan last Saturday night. Not expecting to get a table without a reservation, we decided to sit at the bar. We went to the upstairs bar, where it was less crowded and you didn't have to worry about someone standing behind you ordering drinks. Ariana, our bartender, was really cool. We decided to eat at the bar, instead of waiting for a table. Dinner was great. The crab sticky rice, c... view more

there are so many better places to eat than here

It's a neat looking restaurant but that is where the thrill wears off. The food is underwhelming, overrated and overpriced. You do better to buy a bottle of sake and get some asian takeout from Chinatown and find a romantic place to eat it than waste your hard-earned dollar at Buddakan. \r
We had crispy duck salad (more like chewy duck salad), duck ""tacos"", dried out chicken in a way-too-salty sauce, file

Beware if you have a large party

Went with 13 people for a dinner after graduation. Because we were such a large group they made us eat what they wanted to feed us, and we didn't even get menus. We were pretty much taste testers with the plates they brought to the table. And when the bill came it was over $1300. $100 per person. I will never go back, they are a rip off. Especially with the economy the way it is today. Bye-bye Budda!

Tonight was a birthday celebration for my girlfriend. I had previously eaten at Buddakan for lunch, and it was good. Tonight, however was a different story.
First, the appetizer special, a duck confit spring roll, was not what I expected, as it was greasy and soft. Additionally, the lobster crepes were too thick and the lobster was overcooked, again, not what I expected at all. The duck entree, which I ordered med

Excellent Pan asian

I used to live nearby & went here often. The food & service is always good. Although I would say it used to be even better. Still, it is probably my favorite pan asian in the city. Not to chef: put the duck fried rice back on the menu! Thanks
