It’s a beautiful atmosphere and surroundings. Friendly staff and super minded. However, the food is not wow and if you have tried the Buddha bar in Paris this will not match your expectations at all. Drinks are not tasty either. All in all, the beautiful restaurant doesn’t match the level of food.

We visited Buddha Bar whilst on holiday in Dubai and went for dinner as a family. The restaurant itself is amazing, the decor is like nothing else I've ever seen, I was almost upset that we went when it was so dark because we couldn't see it properly. Even the restrooms were luxurious. The food was without a doubt the best Japanese food I've had and it's my favourite cuisine. It's very pricey, but you're paying for the experience, the service and the food which is most definitely worth it. The youngest member of our party was 10 and even he loved it. A must-see when you're in Dubai!

We had heard glowing reviews about Buddha Bar and the atmosphere and style did not disappoint! We visited on a Friday night and there was definitely a lovely buzz about the place. The drinks were really great and we didn't think they were particularly over priced however we were disappointed with the service. Although there seemed to be a lot of staff around, our drinks order was forgotten and then when we re-ordered we waited another 15 minutes for our drinks. If the service had been better, we definitely would have had more to drink, but as we didn't want to hang around, we left after one round.

Me and my husband been there. It was partially full on a Thursday night. We were sitting on a corner table.
The ambience was amazing so the drinks were, however to get a menu, to order, to re order and to ask for the check... to u will wait 15 to 20 minutes in each cases.
No one bothers to come and check what the guests need.
That's not a good sign for such a great place..

Really looked forward to dining. Food was excellent however the service was horrible. Server asked for our order within 2 minutes of being seated (felt rushed). She was unable to answer questions about the menu. She did not appear to understand English as her answers made no sense. Brought our Miso at the same time as our sushi despite asking for it to be brought before. Both Miso & Sushi were excellent and beautifully presented. Japanese beer selection was disappointingly limited (there was only one on the menu). Ordered both red bean and green team dessert and only got one. Would recommend based on quality of food and decor but not on level of service!
