A great restaurant that somehow replicates many of the wonderful things of the original Buddha Bar in Paris. Fantastic food, amazing music, and a great staff that is very professional, friendly and courteous. The atmosphere is top class, and enjoyable at any time of the day.

I am a fan of Buddha Bar music, and when I heard there is one in North America, I had to go. Music is fantastic, atmosphere is great. Food is delicious.

Didn't expect it to have this much space but the atmosphere is fantastic. A bit pricey but worth it!

I've been to several "trendy" restaurants in the city, so I don't know why at Ajna they feel like they are so "special" that they can't accommodate their menu for vegetarians or make any changes whatsoever. First, I wasn't allowed into the restaurant until I checked my coat in, which was not the same service for others, mind you. It... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
