A hit with businessmen and a fashionable crowd, this kitschy, exotic restaurant isn't quite what you'd expect to find just a few minutes away from the Crillon luxury hotel and ultra chic Place de la Concorde. Climb the massive staircase to this huge restaurant's smaller dining areas, watched over by an enormous Buddha. The imaginative Japanese-Californian menu features reasonably strong grilled duck and other meat dishes.
As a Buddhist, I feel I speak for the millions who are guided by the teachings of the Buddha when I say that it is indeed a shame when restaurateur digs so deep into desperation to find a theme. I am sure that though it has been a commercial success, the insensitivity of its creator, who has unforgivably insulted a great religious leader, will haunt him as he repent his callousness.
Great experience!!!The food was a pleasant surprise. We can not say enaything about music ,just to create a perfect ambiance for a lovely evening. The service was quite good although it was very crowded.Once in Paris it is a must!!
This is one of the hippest and enjoyable hang outs for the young and older crowds...
The drinks are tasty, but a bit pricey.. it is worth sitting and soaking up the atomosphere that has been created here.
No dance floor, just your imagination, to stand up at your table and have fun, without having to leave your party.
Did not sample the food, but it did look fantastick.
If you are planning a trip to Paris, this should not be missed!
Well worth the find and any wait....
Went to Buddha Bar with my boyfriend for our anniversary dinner and we had a really lovely time. The food was excellent, we had the sushi not as expensive as I expected, we spent most of our money on the cocktails! Very pricey! But once in a blue moon so was worth it. And the service was good. My only one complaint was the awful woman on reception!!! She was abrupt and rude, immediately dismissed me on arrival. Unbelievable! She spoke to me in such a rude manner - so far stuck up her own backside - she only works in a restaurant!! But apart from that I definately recommend Buddha Bar!
Took daughter and her friend to this supposed iconic bar in Paris. Have been there before and should have known better - but did I learn? Service? What service? We had to wave to the two waitresses standing two meters away to even get any service. We ordered a bottle of champagne - so we werent trying to be cheap, but it didnt improve the service. Unlike ANY other place in Paris where you get some sort of nibbly with a drink (even peanuts) you get NOTHING. So we ordered sushi. Well we tried to. We waved, whistled, called out - to no avail - the two waitresses just stood talking to each other. So I went to the bar, the bar man then called one of the chatting watresses and we finally got some food. But we had to go through the whole procedure again for another drink. There is no light - nice for ambiance - but not much good if you want to see the menu! No problems - it seems everybody uses the light on their phones to see the menu. If you are thinking of going there - please do yourself a favour - there are loads of other places where you can get and drink - and service is included! So go elsewhere. Unless ofcourse you like being fleeced without service!
