What people say

"Buddakan is an upscale Asian fusion restaurant located in the heart of Chelsea, NYC. Known for its lavish decor and opulent ambiance, it offers a menu that blends traditional Asian flavors with modern culinary techniques. Guests can indulge in a variety of inventive dishes, from sushi and dim sum to flavorful entrees inspired by Chinese, Japanese, and Thai cuisines. With its chic atmosphere and exquisite cuisine, Buddakan provides a luxurious dining experience in Manhattan."
"When it comes to celebrating a birthday, over the top is perfectly acceptable. The dining room at Buddakan is stunning, and the cocktails and food hold up to its grandeur. The dishes, from Mongolian lamb chops to kung pao monkfish and ma la chicken, we admit, will put a dent in your wallet, but we think this iconic NYC restaurant is worth splurging on at least once. Out of all the “clubstaurants” in New York City, this lavish dinner spot tops our list. "
