We arrived early for our booking & shown to our table by the window. Ambience is lovely, starters of Vietnamese chicken salad was tasty & the mussels in chilli coconut milk were delicious. Salmon in ginger & chilli on pal choi was nice but needs the sticky rice to help balance the dish taste wise. Dessert was nice, I had fresh fruit with sorbet & partner had strawberry with macaroon & chocolate sauce. The staff were attentive but to be fair there were only 2 tables of customers.

I had dinner in Buddha Bar with friends which had been booked through Bookatable. We had chosen the £25 set menu when booking. While the service in the restaurant and bar was what one would expect, the food was not satisfactory in the slightest. The starters were fine, the main course not substantial at all and the dessert was dire. Having all chosen the fruit platter, most of the fruit was tasteless and the sorbet in the middle very sour. The drinks were typical London prices as expected and were good. For what the bill came to including food and service, I would have rather have gone somewhere else and will not be frequenting Buddha Bar again.

Very much enjoyed the experience, although the portions were very small. I appreciate it is not a 'cheap' place to eat but expected the food portions to be slightly bigger, saying that, really enjoyed the food and the staff were very attentive and loved the ambience of the Buddah Bar, would go back but drinks not cheap!!

We were pleasantly greeted and whisked away to a lovely table. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. We were on the set deal so it was good value. Enjoyable evening.
