“Chic and sophisticated”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

I visited Buddha Bar in Paris and was absolutely taken by the beauty of it. Very chic and sophisticated. The prices were a bit high and the portions small but a very beautiful interior nonetheless

“Must in Paris”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

Buddah Bar is one of those legendary places that you need to visit in order to be able to say: Yes, i've seen it! it's over rated.
All in all there is a great atmosphere, great music that didnt lost the charm and exotic touch but expect of course very high prices mostly paid for the "brand" itself.
If you are into the night life attractions Buddah Bar worth your while.

“Bad Karma at Buddah Bar”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

After a great evening with friends, we decided to top it off at Buddah Bar.

A round of VERY EXPENSIVE drinks became more expensive when my wife handed over 2 crisp E50 notes for a E70 bill for 4 drinks. She only had E50 notes in her possession, making the issue black and white. When the change was not returned, questions were asked and needless to say, a dispute arose in a calm manner,

Further discussions with management resulted in the overall price of the 4 drinks becoming E100 with an assurance that the matter would be checked at the end of the evening. I figure you can guess the rest of the story.

Now I expect such things from dodgier establishments, but I guess BB is heading for the bottom of the pile.

If you want to be ripped off, please go to Buddah Bar.

“Nice location - OK food.”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Been here a few times and it is all in all okay.. One thing though, I think it is a lttle too expensive.. The food is avarage, especially the Curry is not worth the monies.. Sushi is fine - great drinks - interesting location and fine mood in the restaurant..

“Buddha Bar : Mecca of the French capital”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Except for the monuments and museums that you could visit in Paris, you should visit the Buddha Bar, the hot - spot of the ultra chic Faubourg St. Honore, a Mecca of the French capital. To be honest, this is the first place that I booked for when I decided to come in Paris, even before the hotel and the flight...it's always crowded and you should make a reservation at least one month before in order to be arranged on a good place. Unique atmosphere, full of candles, under the enormous monument of Buddha. Bar and restaurant of high quality and excellent service. Quite expensive but it's an absolute value for money. An experience to remember for the rest of my life !
