Rock shrimp was very bland. My sister had 5 spice chicken which was yum. Cranberry juice I ordered seemed like it had been watered down. Not the greatest food n drinks but ambience was lovely.
Great restaurant. Drinks and food a little pricey but to be expected for a restaurant in Knightsbridge.
Good food and environment but very bad service
Very disappointed with Buddha Bar on the whole. Although the place is decorated great, it is completely let down by its staff, service and food. From the moment we walked in we felt rudely dismissed by the staff at the front of house, who didn’t greet us and looked at us very rudely. When we went over they were chatting and giggling for about 5 minutes before taking us over to our table. I seen this happening to others who were also waiting. Then when we were seated it took 10 minutes before we even got our menus or could order drinks. When trying to get the waiter’s/ waitresses attention they would avoid eye contact or pretend they couldn’t hear us! The food was sludgy and 100% not worth its price, and the £15 service charge was the last thing the staff deserved! And to top off ruining our night out in London, a waiter smashed a drink right next to my partner, hitting his leg and splashing all over his jeans. Then he just walked off with no apology and left a waitress to clean it up! When we were finally served the waiter didn’t speak to us, he just got out his notepad and nodded every time we spoke. What an awful greeting! Honestly I could write a book on my experience at the awful, overpriced experience I had and have since heard other have had at Buddha bar. STAY AWAY, save your money and go somewhere more welcoming that doesn’t have staff who think they are owed something from their customers !! Very poorly managed and such a let down as a lovely location and scene.
We ordered spring roll (duck), tiger prawn tempura and sushi (Californian roll). sushi was ok but I can’t say it for the rest... the fried ones was so heavy to eat ... I feel like they are using the same frying oil for a long time. Tempura was not crunchy, they absorb all oil like sponge. We couldn’t finish them.
Great location and restaurant. We went to Dubai BB previously and London left us slightly underwhelmed. The prices were far too high given the quality of the food (which was good) but not £200 good for 2 adults with a couple of drinks.
Service level needs improvement i.e. food before drinks and a long wait for the next drink (we were two people).
13.5% service charge should command equivalent service. Wiping the table with a wet cloth after every course leaving the wooden top wet / beady.
Food was good overall but overpriced. Quantity was good but for instance the salt and pepper squid had squid plus a whole lot of fried batter pieces (rather than squid itself) - very much like food at any other average bar.
Great food - inattentive staff lets it down!
Service was awful, food was terrible, really overrated.
It was alright not that great, service was very slow. And food wasn’t that great but it wasn’t too bad either. In dessert we got creme brûlée but it tasted more like a mousse I didn’t like that. I have had a better creme brûlée in Bob bob Richard.
Lovely atmosphere . Quick service with the meals we ordered . You will love the ambience and the crowd of people that gather around this restuarant . It was my birthday , and I truly loved the place , the food and the lovely waiter that attended to us . The bar area is a nice place also to chill out if you are not there for the food . All in all, book a table and go have some quality time in a very nice atmosphere for the mature minds
Service was slow
I had my birthday meal here... Don’t!
1. We asked for water and got it 20 minutes later.
2. After the meal I asked to have my birthday cake from the back, the waiter said he doesn’t know what I’m talking about, just walked off.
3. Your charged per person for eating your birthday cake???
4. I asked many times for a knife to cut my (Large) cake they brought a scone knife. No plates, no paper towels, nothing... it never came.
5. I asked for the bill... The same waiter still did not know what we were talking about???? We had to ask someone else.
I was really embarrassed taking my friends here... Don’t ignore the reviews.
Card machine wasn’t working, we had to bring cash, hopefully it was just an accident that day and not everyday.
Went for my 21st birthday and had a preset menu I coordinated with the manager. They rushed us with the food and brought everything out too quickly and had cleaned the table and were not acknowledging us at all. The service was terrible. All of the food was out within 10-15 minutes of us sitting down and we felt incredibly rushed for a celebratory meal and then they cleared the table and took the plates within an hour of us being there. Then they did not pay one second of attention to us once we wanted to get the check. It took over an hour to get the check — LONGER THAN THE ENTIRE MEAL. i was incredibly disappointed and was not a way to celebrate what was supposed to be a fun birthday with my friends.
Having heard a lot of buzz about the venue it didn’t really live up to expectations with poor levels of service throughout waiting half an hour for drinks to arrive as well as nonsensical security regulations being the first thing referenced when walking in which didn’t set the tone very well.
Reception ladies are not friendly at all they really have an attitude. Food is average. Service very poor. I have been in many Buddha Bar restaurants but this one is really not comparable to the others. Never again !
Food was tasty, slightly over priced but this is expected.
Unfortunately the service was slow, which is surprising seeing as this is a top level bar restaurant and many items were missing from what we ordered. We had to ask the waiter several times for ice and a few of our drinks never arrived.
However after speaking to the manager, the service improved and he attended to our needs throughout the night.
Food overpriced for what it is. Definitely overrated overall
Amazing place , Great food
Took a while to be served. Ambience was very nice
Service was good. The food was okay and the staff were polite and it was a short wait to our table.
My type of dinner ❤️
Service was really disappointing! It was my brithday and they presented the plate in such a unfriendly way, they just came and dashed the plate on the table and the candle wasnt lit. The waiter was asked about why the candle wasnt lit and he replied with there’s a candle right there!
Excellent staff and timings - would like if they had more vegetarian options but nevertheless the dishes we ordered were well nice.
The calamari was excellent great sharing sized portion. However the mains fell flat though well seasoned lacked a certain taste. My parter has to wait ages for them to check what she could eat dye her allergy but they was pleasant and accommodating. All in all great place to dine if your pallet is a bit basic and does not require bursts of flavour.
Beautiful place, food wasn't great I've had better food cheaper elsewhere unfortunately. However if you're going for an occasion, it's a beautiful place. I tried the chicken as I'm not a big fish lover, however this place is known for it's sea food
Always welcoming. Fantastic food. Lovely ambiance
Service was really poor. Food was disgusting.
If you want to go to a place where service is rubbish, food is pricey and everyone wants to do an insta pic on the stairway, this is your place
DISGUSTING! Service considering it was my 25 BIRTHDAY ! Hardly acknowledge our table . Never again !
