Really good food but expensive. Make sure you have reservations or your in for a good wait. But you can give them your number and they will call you when it's your time to eat if your gambling in the casino

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Atlantic City. I love how its at the pier and connected to Caesars so it's a short walk over without going outside. We get the tasting menu which is a little bit of everything from the steak which is wasabi crusted to the outstanding melt in your mouth bass. The only thing... More

The tasting menu is simply amazing. It highlights the best of the menu, giving you a taste of multiple appetizers, entrees and desserts. The food just keeps coming! Love the dumplings, the wasbi-crusted beef, the pork loin, and the salmon. And the meal ends with the fried, cream-filled donuts with chocolate dipping sauce!

We visited the Buddakan during the #50bitesAC promotion/charity event. They served their chicken dumpling It was great. Service was a little slow at first, but was okay afterwards.

Went here for our 7th time! This was a birthday dinner and the food was once again incredible. We tried a couple of new things this time. The lobster fried rice was tasty. It had big chunks of perfectly cooked lobster and lots of fresh herbs. We also tried the creme brûlée and let me tell you it is even... More

Decided to go to AC to have dinner and see a show. Stayed at Ceasar's and did a quick review of restaurants. Decided on Buddakan and never regretted the decision for a moment. We had a quiet booth and were attended to quickly. Our first experience here and took the recommendation of the server. We had the filet mignon and... More

We totally enjoyed our meals here. It's a bit pricy but worth it. Our waitress was great. She was knowledgeable about the food choices, was attentive and friendly. I which I could remember her name! The atmosphere was amazing. It appears to be outside with stars in the ceiling and the walls made to look like buildings. We will definitely... More

Buddakan has been called “a temple of modern Asian cuisine.” But it’s also a testament to the possibilities of inspired design. Upon entering, the first thing one sees is the surreal Asian garden surrounded by multi-level archways and 25-foot trees that seem to grow through rocks, footbridges and the ceiling itself. The dramatic atmosphere and enchanting karma is enhanced by the presence of a gigantic Golden Buddha that watches over the entire restaurant from a head of a 24-foot communal dining room table. The menu portrays an innovative interpretation of Asian Cuisine that matches the ambience in terms of creativity, inspiration and its capacity to satisfy. A delectably imaginative fusion of Chinese, French and Asian styles that results in dishes that exotic yet comforting – all prepared with perfectionist attention to the smallest detail. Buddakan’s spectacular yet dreamlike ambience adds a new dimension to the array of destinations at the Pier at Ceasars.
