Stephen Starr’s Buddakan is a spectacular restaurant featuring exotic flavors of modern Asian cuisine with creativity and drama. Bon Appetit notes, 'The mostly white space is striking, with a lit-from-within communal table in the middle of the room, a waterfall & a ten-foot, candle-bedecked Buddha. The religious icon watches over hip customers indulging in pan-Asian cuisine that far surpasses the fare usually found at hot spots like this.' Newsweek reports, 'Design also serves as a signifier for cuisine. You walk into Buddakan, one of the hottest new restaurants in Philadelphia, past a shimmering waterfall & Japanese river stones & you say to yourself, 'ginger-miso everything' even before you see the magnificent 10-foot Buddha dominating the dining room.' Named one of “America's Top 50 Restaurants' by Travel & Leisure and 'Top Restaurant for Fun' by Gourmet, Buddakan has become one of the country's most talked about restaurants.

l Wanted to love this place but it came up a bit short on a few dishes and service. Was really excited about the menu. Doesn?t focus on any particular Asian cuisine but definitely Far East...

l Great cocktails to start with. Good music playing and the place has a great vibe. We enjoyed the rice with beef, the dim sum platter and the pork.
