Foursquare Tips

  • A huge gold Buddha beams down as you live it up, modern Mandarin-style, in this dark dramatically lit palace. Contemporary Chinese dishes and the house Zen-gria keep the Asian spirit flying.
  • Trendy atmosphere, great service and awesome food!! My favs are the calamari salad, shrimp and lobster spring rolls, chilean sea bass and dim sum donuts for dessert!!!
  • Make a reservation. Try the ginger infused drinks.
  • Get the bento box dessert!
  • When you walk into Buddakan you will feel immediately transported to somewhere in Southeast Asia, where the Far East and the East Coast mix as seamlessly as sushi and soy.
  • For adventurous diners, a large community table allows for ample socializing.
  • The duck is awesomeee
  • Try their bento box, which includes three dishes for $15 to $20, depending on which category you're ordering from.
  • Best Chilean Sea Bass!
  • Edamame Ravioli. 'Nuff said.
  • Amazing atmosphere
  • bento box dessert: must order for chocolate lovers, otherwise the "dip sum" doughnuts come with two dipping sauces and to-die-for ginger whipped cream.
  • Whole menu delicious! We always enjoy the chicken ginger dumplings and the asian ceasar.
  • Seriously! Edamame Ravioli. OMG!
  • Family style plates, quieter seating upstairs, boisterous dining, save room for the donuts
  • This is one of my favorite restaurants.. The food is flavorful and I love the ambiance.. In the evening the lights are dim.. Intimate
  • Get the Vigor. It's a fantastic cocktail.
  • Edamame ravioli & crying chocolate. You can thank me later!
  • Edamame ravioli are awesome!! Sadly there are only four on a plate. Do good!!
  • It is my best Asian restaurant experience ever. Try the spicy shrimp for appetizer, shrimp dumpling& spring rolls.for main course the duck, black pepper beef & sweet shrimp walnut. donuts is good.
