Been to Buddakan on many occasions and is always a great experience. Whenever we have a special family event, they are high on the list of places to go. The food is fantastic and I love the atmosphere.

The place interior is really beautiful and well designed. The portions size is ok, but the prices are incredibly high, for the really mediocre food. Service wasn't very good as well. Won't visit this place again.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch in this interesting room - a bit dark for mid-day but probably a great vibe at night. Creative menu with delicious vegetarian options. Big thumbs-up for the curried cauliflower with spicy cashews as well as the salmon shashimi. The bento box...More

I don't believe Buddakan offers buffet style meals. It's an upscale, elegant sit-down dinner type of place. The prices are comparable to any upscale restaurant in the area. It's beautiful though especially from the selection... More

Buddakan has been called “a temple of modern Asian cuisine.” But it’s also a testament to the possibilities of inspired design. Upon entering, the first thing one sees is the surreal Asian garden surrounded by multi-level archways and 25-foot trees that seem to grow through rocks, footbridges and the ceiling itself. The dramatic atmosphere and enchanting karma is enhanced by the presence of a gigantic Golden Buddha that watches over the entire restaurant from a head of a 24-foot communal dining room table. The menu portrays an innovative interpretation of Asian Cuisine that matches the ambience in terms of creativity, inspiration and its capacity to satisfy. A delectably imaginative fusion of Chinese, French and Asian styles that results in dishes that exotic yet comforting – all prepared with perfectionist attention to the smallest detail. Buddakan’s spectacular yet dreamlike ambience adds a new dimension to the array of destinations at the Pier at Ceasars.
