My cousin and I were walking the boardwalk, looking for someplace to eat. When we saw The Playground, we couldn't resist the temptation to enter the beautiful structure. We went to the second level and sat down overlooking beach bathers below. The view is so...More

Went here for Restaurant week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Many of the items on the Restaurant Week menu were taken from the everyday menu so I'm confident the food is always as good. We had a very good server and the manager checked in twice....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.
