The food here was superb! We were truly impressed. Delicious, fresh, and unique! The black pepper beef was cooked perfectly and the cashew chicken was really great.

I've eaten here several times. It's conveniently located across from Caesers so you can park there, just beware of casino parking fees. I recommend the edemame ravioli.

Buddakan is located in the Playground/Pier Shops at Caesar's by the boardwalk on the third floor. We had the lobster fried rice, sweet and crispy shrimp and ponzu chicken -- AMAZING!! The food, drinks, ambience and staff were great! Highly recommend.

I didn't expect a lot. I'm used to big name restaurants in high traffic tourist areas turning out to be disappointments. Buddakan was awesome. Not only was our sea bass awesome (tender and flavorful) but the service was really fast and attentive. It really stood...More

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.
