Came here for a late night dinner with my boyfriend mid-August. The ambiance was lovely and server was attentive. Tuna spring rolls were awesome and the edamame dumplings were not something I would ever order again. My entree (chicken) was great and cocktails were awesome....More

Went here for a quick lunch and the food did not dissapoint. Though a bit smaller than the NYC location, the food and Service were excellent. The sake and cocktail selection is pretty good. Among the top rated restaurants in Atlantic City.

Buddakan is the best Chinese food that I ate ever. No grease, tasty and the portion is just right for all of you. Price is affordable! I would go and eat there whenever I visit Atlantic City!

Had the chef's tasting menu for 60 dollars per person. Everything was perfectly cooked, service was impeccable, desserts were divine. Decor is funky asian themed with a giant Buddha; tables are tight and the room is a bit noisy, as I expected on a Saturday...More

Buddakan always impresses friends we bring along. We arrived at 5:30 to avoid the crowds and had very attentive service. My husband and I usually share the small (which is enough for 4 people) Crispy Calamari Salad, an appetizer or side dish, and the Char...More

Came here for a special dinner. Excellent meal and service. Loved the atmosphere and selections. Only complaint was it seemed a bit crowed where we sat but not enough to effect my impression/review

I don't believe Buddakan offers buffet style meals. It's an upscale, elegant sit-down dinner type of place. The prices are comparable to any upscale restaurant in the area. It's beautiful though especially from the selection... 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.
