Well, what can I say! This place is simply AMAZING!!!
Buddakan combines Asian cuisine with the flamboyance of 16th century Paris –it is based on a ‘ to share’ menu, meaning it’s great for group dining, and you’ll get to try a number of different dishes.
It was a Sunday night and we wanted to enjoy some great food.
Buddakan had been recommended to me by a number of people and of course it was featured on ‘Sex and the City,’ so it was definitely on my list of places to go.
From the moment we walked in, we were wowed!
The décor, the ambiance, the service, and of course the food – this place cannot be faulted. Its infamous ‘centre dining room table’ is just beautiful and the lightly lit chandeliers make for the perfect setting.
We tried a variety of dishes, but the standouts were:
- Szechuan Pork Dumplings
- King Crab & Lobster Siu Mai
- Crispy Calamari Salad
- BBQ Eel Fried Rice
- King Crab Hot Pot
It is a little pricey, however, if you are looking to try one high-end restaurant in New York City – this is your spot, you won’t be disappointed.
Note: It’s also a hot spot for celebrity spotting 😉
