After some initial concerns it would be too 'touristy' or 'commercial' given the hype around the music, as soon as we stepped inside that disappeared. We went for drinks after dinner on a Friday night and it was definitely one of our highlights. The central piece, a towering Buddha overlooks the diners but keeps a watchful eye on the upstairs...

We walked towards Buddah Bar hopeful we would have no issues getting in and we didn’t. It has aged well, with a spectacular mezzanine style, restaurant below and bar on the mezz. Lots of comfortable areas to sip on cocktails, and people watch. We downed several, the best being the lighter Electric Daiquiri, the Double Dragon (very strong with two... More

We had to ask 2 different waiters and still wait for 30 minutes before we even got the menus. After that it took almost the same until someone came to take our order. We also had to ask to get water to our red wine but we never got it. The food was good and came in quickly though. We... More

Heard such good things about Buddha bar, but it was only average at best. The tables were practically on top of each other. The toilets are in dire need of a refurb and the food was average at best. Buddha bar needs to raises its game and reinvest. Staff were lovely and great service

Description
reated thanks to the visionary imagination of Raymond Visan, owner of the famous Barfly in Paris, this restaurant-bar-lounge, located on the ultra-chic Faubourg St Honoré, rapidly became a a must-see and be-seen in the French capital. With its cinema-style décor, covering a 1,000 square meter surface area, the Buddha-Bar boasts majestic proportions, with three levels built around a monumental Buddha, over 4 meters high. Alcove lounges wind around the mezzanine and its bar sculpted in the form of a dragon with red scales and green jade, offering strategically cozy spots, where you may enjoy a privileged moment of relaxation by candlelight, unobserved by others. Gigantic arabesque chandeliers in red velvet embroidered with golden thread are beautifully suspended above the restaurant with its round tables and warm, discreet red lounge, for a fully enjoyable dining experience. The Pacific Rim menu with Pan-Asian, Californian and European influences, combines fresh products, subtle flavors and spices from around the world, based on a concept of sharing meals. The warm and pleasant Pacific atmosphere and the restaurant's attentive and friendly waiting staff help create a highly relaxing ambiance, which is subtly enhanced by the music carefully selected by the resident DJs. Here, you are suspended in time and the journey is just beginning.... Breathe in deeply....You are at the BUDDHA-BAR.
