Very nice place for dinner. The service was outstanding. Our waitress Kemi went above and beyond. She is the reason we would go back. Very genuine and extremely attentive. She was wow!!! Thank you Kemi!

Poor service, 7 people squeezed into a small table/area, food took long to come out and had to ask multiple times for the same drinks

Food was delicious.
Service on drinks was terrible. Had empty glasses for half the time and often had to ask more than once for our drinks.
Having said that, at the end we were given a complimentary sample of some maki rolls with our last drinks order

I was very excited to go to the Buda bar, I knew it would be expensive, but £9 for a mock tail and £4.50 for 750ml of water is very bad, and the sushi was so overpriced and not as good as Yo Shushi. Two people not drinking alcohol having only a small amount of food is a total rip off.

4 pieces of salmon nagiri for £19 OMG that’s totally overpriced and it was not that nice.

I will not be recommending it to friends for sure.

Venue was amazing food was quality and had quantity. Service was absolutely poor waited a good 15mins to be even given a menu food & drink. Took about 30 mins for our waiter to come and attend to our table. When given fresh cutlery after our starters, waiter just place the new ones on the table without a napkin. For the price of the bill, the service definitely needs to be 10/10.

It was wonderful ambience and staff was very nice.
Everything was pretty good but the price was quite high.
I understand when you go to a classy place, you expect to pay but I thought it was a little steep but overall it was lovely.

The food was good but the waiter can’t hear the orders so she messed up our drinks and order. Also the main came before the appetizers

Afternoon tea like no other. Asian inspired , great savoury nibbles , very filling and tiny desserts were just right after savouries. Much more interesting than the normal teas . Good champagne too.

The food was excellent, the service was miserable. We have waited sooo long for the waiter to bring the menu then when we wanted to order dessert we couldn’t find anyone to take the order. We ended up asking for the bill and my friend said to the waiter “ the service here is slow”. At least he should say “sorry”. At the end of the day customers pay for service!. Not only that, all the tables were dirty and ppl at the other tables seemed upset. Honestly, it is either understaffed or bad management.

The receptionist was very very rude , and she refused to give us the table because the booking was 15 minutes away but the delay was caused by the receptionist because there was a long line.
The service inside the restaurant is very bad and the workers are very rude.
Thank you for the bad experience...

Food wasn't the best and was served cold. Waiter couldn't speak English, big regret choosing this place to go to for my birthday. Won't be coming here again or recommending it.

Great service only complaint is that we had to pay for the dessert that had my friends birthday message on it. I also had to go over and ask about it, when I made a note of it on my booking. This should have been complimentary considering we paid a lot for food and drinks.

Great experience overall

They gave me a really bad table right under the stairs even after I asked to have it changed the lady that took me to the table was rude and told me it was all they had, even though there were a lot of empty tables that stayed empty till we finished our meal and left. We were disturbed constantly with people taking pictures on the stairs and standing right on top of our table while we ate it was not a nice experience. Service was not so good probably not enough staff on floor, server was cheerful and polite. Food was okay, got charged for teriyaki sauce when I ordered tobasco though. Decor is outdated and ambience is not up to par downstairs compared to other restaurants that have a similar priced money.

They gave us our deserts with an anniversary message. The food was good and came quickly. Would have been nicer to be able to go downstairs even if it was a bit early (only 7:30pm)

Had to ask to order drinks then food.
Starters came fine but didn’t remove plates before mains came.

3 mains came and not the fourth had to wait another 5-10mins while food was getting cold. No apologies.

Had to ask for the bill three times before finally coming.

Will not be visiting again and will advise all my friends of the experience.

This was our first experience in Buddha bar, we came all the way from Manchester to celebrate a friends birthday meal. We chose Buddha bar for this however were massively disappointed due to the lack of poor service and the food was not to a good standard. Unfortunately neither of us enjoyed our dishes. The service was horrible we had to call the waiter several times before we were attended to. Unfortunately we were highly disappointed and would not recommend this place.

Tried the lunch menu for the first time - whilst the food was well prepared we were a little disappointed having eaten at other Buddha Bar restaurants abroad. There was a hen party there at the same time in the sane area as us and we felt that it would have been more appropriate for them to be seated elsewhere in the restaurant which was not full at the time
