Buddha-Bar is universal, each destination is unique in its own right. We have ensured the concept is flexible to the British lifestyle, yet still attractive to the restaurant's eclectic audience, which is a great reflection of London's cosmopolitan crowd.
Signature dishes here include spicy Mango Maki, Spicy tuna tartare, Yellowtail kisame, and Wagyu beef fillet with truffle butter. Sushi & Sashimi platters & Maki rolls are also very popular, available any day of the week.
Signature cocktails you will enjoy are the Bubble Wap, the Kiwi Kukama and of course the amazing Tokyo Old Fashioned.
The atmosphere at Buddha-Bar is young, sexy and vibrant, with crowd of like-minded professionals, keen to relax over a few drinks and exciting cuisine.
Thursday nights: Arabian themed nights with live singers, musicians & stunning belly dancers.

Great ambiance and beautiful setting, food is OK too. But slow service, in terms of covid-19 Buddha Bar could do more, for example they dont clean the credit card machine customer to customer and wipe down chair handles when cleaning the table.

Also not part of Eat out to help out.

Loved the whole evening. I booked for my husband’s birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambience. Quiet but that’s understandable. Waiters were attentive and polite. Food was delicious, sushi platters were lush!

I enjoyed the food but cocktail experience was very basic. They didn’t have the smoky effect.
Our table service was good but I can’t say great cos our waiters kept mixing up our order and just wasn’t al that pleasurable. We also had to keep asking for things
All in wall i would definitely visit again

The place the upper level looks nice it's a shame I can't say that about the food. The food is of poor standards. Way too much salt in everything even in the chilli dip. The female servers and one younger Male servers were great and kind but overall the food is not up to the standards of the lool of the place. The cost is not too bad but it is pricey but for the location that is totally understandable. I loved the lights, decor and the alcoholic drinks are amazing and so well made. An instagrammable spot it is.

The Buddha-Bar experience was very good as usual, I missed it a lot! The food was outstanding. Thank you so much for having reopened at best and without compromises...

Excellent food. My personal favourites are are spicy mango maki, volcano rolls, the crab salad and the sea bass! I adore Buddha Bar restaurants worldwide. London branch is my favourite.

I was very disappointed with the food from the papaya salad to the sushi to the mains.. I’ve been to Buddha Bar in Dubai and therefore had high expectations!

Extremely disappointed!!

Food was very nice. Good quality. Service shambolic. Served by five different staff. Offered two dishes and a drink which we didn't even order during the course of the evening. Was there for 10 minutes on arrival before I had to wave to get attention. Had the starters then got asked if I would like desert or the bill!! Staff are confused as did the head waiter appear to be. They need to give the customers a dedicated waiter or waitress Got the bill then got drinks on it which were not ours. This restaurant is so far away from the superior quality you get in Dubai.

Lovely atmosphere, great vibes and cute decor. The food was very good, great portion sizes!
However the service was very, very slow. We waited almost 20 minutes for someone to take our order which was confusing as there were staff just standing around. Overall was good value for money.

Welcomed and served by lovely staff. The food best my expectations. I think this is a cute place if you want to go somewhere a little more fancy than your usual but want great value for the food. The cocktails were also very nice. No issues with restaurant and the manager was extremely kind. Would definitely visit again.

Food was awful, satay chicken was served with a layer of fat on each individual piece, pad tai seemed as though it was microwaved so was not edible, overall experience was dreadful, the waiter was helpful however didn’t understand our requests.

Absolutely appalling visit, would not recommend this place to anyone.

Unfortunately we were disappointed overall. It took 50 minutes to order a drink from when we arrived. We had to change table as the light overhead was faulty and flashing. The staff were really unfriendly and disinterested. The food was nice but not good value.... they have the cheek to add 13.5% service to the bill which we asked to have removed as the service was so poor. Not worth the hype and wouldn’t go again. On the plus side, the girls who clean the bathrooms were fantastic, if only the other staff had the same attitude!

I don’t think the was the best and not worth the amount they are charging. Other restaurant on their level provide better value for money, I personally think you are paying for the location rather than the food or service.
