It's a rip off, I've loved the music of Buddha bar for years so was excited to visit the place created by George V, but the portions are small, it's more like a canteen than an intimate atmosphere, the food is basically chucked out the...More

Buddha Bar is a fabulous and classy bar and restaurant which pumps great dance/club music, employs professional wait staff and concierge and spares few details. This isn't a tourist stop-- it's a classy dining establishment. As such, people who aren't dressed the part have no...More

Having listened to their compilations since they first came out about ten years ago, visiting the Buddha Bar was for a must for me. It's not quite the trendy place it once was, though, simply because the novelty has gone, but the atmosphere is still...More
