3rd time here. It is a lovely place with decent pricing, and a unique ambiance. The mix between music, lighting, and the whole atmosphere is delicious. I think it is worth a visit as a night place in Paris. Would love to try the food as well!

Warning to all the tourists out there that happen to think this is a 'trendy' and 'nice' place to go in Paris. My husband and I went for Valentines dinner and saw 2-3 mice running along the floor in the middle of the restaurant. When I spoke to the manager I was told ' that's just the way Paris is'.... More

I tried their version of Tom Kha Gai coconut chicken soup and 3 different kinds of sushi and everything was delicious! The only thing I didn't like was that the couples tables were so close to each other that you could listen to the other couples on each side. There were like 12 inches (30cm) between tables. We even had... More

Music was great, ambiance and design fantastic. The food is Asian fusion and everything we ordered was reasonably good. I'd suggest going earlier than your reservation to enjoy the bar upstairs. Rather go just for the bar and music and skip eating here... nothing exceptional....

We never heard of Buddha Bar. We were sightseeing late in the evening when we got hungry and stumbled upon this lovely place. At first we didn't know if it was a club or a restaurant. The hostess said that they served food and that there was room for us in the dining area. We tried several dishes. Everything was... More

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.
