I booked a table for my partners birthday and can not even describe how disgusted I was with the service. 20 minutes after being seated I had to ask for someone to come to the table to take our drinks order. If the venue was busy I would be more understanding of the slow service, but the waiters had decided for whatever reason they did not need to attend to our table at ALL. After our order was taken, the only other time someone came to our table was to bring our food. We sat with our empty cocktail for 30 mins before again, I had to signal for someone to come to our table. Waiters walked past our empty drinks and finished food multiple times without a care in the world.
It was very obvious that the staff only offered their service to the people they assumed would spend the most money, as as soon as the table next ours ordered a bottle of Dom every waiter in Buddha Bar was running back and forth to check they couple weren't thirsty. It completely ruined the mood for my partner and I, as it was very clear we were being treated differently. I demanded the manager was brought to our table and he offered complimentary shots and desert to apologise for the behaviour of his staff.
I been here many times and always loved it ....love the food , music , everything about it . But still I love the Monaco Buddha bar the best ....been to most of them .....but that one is fab
I booked for Arabian night to see the belly dance show but there at the restaurant they said it starts at 11:30 pm. The website and everywhere I looked didn’t mention anything about that timing, it just say: Arabian night. Food is fine. Tables are very close to each other. No privacy distance. Waiter didn’t pass every time to clean the table
Very nice place to have a Romantic dinner for two or a group dinner great vibe great staff parking is a little bit of a problem but overall 4/5
Excellent service and ambiance. Food was delicious!
Great restaurant and bar, lively atmosphere and great crowd, however, althouth the staff were friendly and accomodating, service was slow, we waited twenty minutes for drinks to be served and when it arrived it was wrong.
Nontheless, we had a good evening
Beautiful restaurant, amazing service and the food is just as good. I had the best time for my bf’s birthday. I’m usually a fussy eater but the flavours were phenomenal. Iv been a few time so I would defiantly recommend!
Staff should be more attentive .. service wasnt great and we weren’t asked about our food.

Food was delicious and I would pay more for the food so value for money was decent
The service was outstanding from the waiters, faultless!
The drinks were lovely but definitely not value for money on drinks

Our waiter George had a great attitude and provided great services.
I came here to celebrate our very recent engagement we got sat by two large groups and got left to the waist side with service. Didn’t offer anymore drinks etc. The guests beside us were breaking glazed or taking pictures on the staircase the servers looked frustrated and the manager looked powerless. We gave him feedback after we paid but he came back suggesting shots for us. We didn’t want anything just wanted to give feedback. Dubai was better.
Good presentation excellent service. A special presentation of Dessert was issued to us at the end of the meal which made our night!
Great for special occasions, if you can afford it!
Very nice food and service,
Everything was perfect, we once again were pleased with Buddha Bar. I also would like to thank to our waiter Yorgo or Giorgos (Greek one) for his service, he was so friendly and helpful.
Excellent service; great food and portion sizes.
The staff were extremely polite and attentive
So amazing my first time here for my sisters birthday and it was so great everyone who was with me had nothing but good things to say about the food and service and the decor of the place was just lovely.
Would come here again for any dinner or birthday great place.
1.Nobody asked if the food was okey. Which it wasn’t.
2. The food came before our drinks .
3. We had to ask for sauce, drinks and food that we ordered,
4. The price for the service and food was not worth it.
Table was by the toilets , too many people walking past all night
Good time food good drink good server could of asked about drink orders more often
Food is mediocre at best. We were ignored for the first 20 mins until we went and complained and then we were told our table tends to be ignored. Wonderful. But then they are clear in telling you at the time of booking you need to clear out in 90mins. We got some sorry edamame to make up for that. The waitress tried to make up for it at first by offering faster service but then at one point I said you have made up for the initial disaster and then she vanished again. It was our first night in London place was recommended by a local friend for a “good time” that’s all that might be : nicely dressed people and a party vibe but food was quite sub par and service even more so.
I have contacted Buddha bar about beyond poor experience and received no acknowledgement. A waiter had got all boiling candle wax on me and told me it’ll wash off, not only was I burnt and bruised but it had ruined my outfit and shoes. Received our first round of drinks after we’d finished our starters, our plates from our main course sat in front of us for an hour and our dessert never showed up- yes we did have to constantly nag the staff. I’ve never felt the need to write a review before but this venue was horrific.
This was bought for me as a present. It truly was an amazing experience. Staff were courteous but friendly and made us feel very welcome.
The food was delicious and the Bao buns I can only describe as clouds!!!! Cocktails also superb and staff more.than willing to.recommend for your taste
We thought that the live music was too loud and annoying we have been too buddha Paris the ambiance was very classy
The service was totally unprofessional I didn’t feel that I’m at Buddha Bar where the service should be exceptional.
Always a treat and never been let down. Good food, good music, good service, nice location. Wine list could do with a few more budget options in my estimation but in reality this is always one of my favourite spots, so I'll definitely be back.
Food was great, cocktails were really nice and ambience was impeccable, the staff were really friendly would definitely recommend. The restaurants decor is exceptional for those that love nice restaurants.
Brilliant food, brilliant service - Overall, brilliant
We found the restaurant very dated - quite 1990s in decor and style. The food was okay but not great and certainly not for the price. Service was good and the staff helpful and friendly. I guess you are paying for being in Knightsbridge - but there are much better options for a similar price locally. Zuma prices but with none of the atmosphere or style.
Awful! Poor service, poor food. No atmosphere and people check their hygiene rating! It got a 2! Worse than the chicken shops you would find on the high street. Overpriced rubbish. Stick to Nobu.

Nothing can compare to Buddha Bar Marrakech. Fully disappointed, overpriced, bad service , we waited 45min for our food order.
Service wasn’t up to what you would expect in a place like that . The food came before a single drink had arrived , my daughter wanted a cocktail called Twinkle but they said they weren’t able to make it .
Food was ok , my dish of prawns with monkfish was missing the monkfish , only 2 small cubes and 1 piece of butternut squash almost raw .... not great !
£80 for a shisha 😳
Nice decor but that’s it really , dissapointed .
