If you love Hakkasan and Yauatcha, chances are you are going to be very excited about the opening of this new restaurant in Knightsbridge, the Buddha Bar.
With a winning combination of pan-Asian food and delicious cocktails in opulent and seductive surroundings, this would be perfect for your next date night. It would also be perfect for a bit of mummy time with the girls in true Sex and the City style! You can even reserve a private booth in the restaurant for just the occasion if there are 10 or less of you.
The restaurant is set over 2 levels – the ground floor offers relaxed dining and cocktails at the long bar, while downstairs is the more formal dining area presided over by Buddha himself (or at least, a floating steel mesh version of the same).
If the interior doesn’t do it for you, the food sounds like it will! Signature Buddha-Bar dishes include the famous Buddha-Bar chicken salad, seared sesame tuna, wok fried beef, spicy tuna tartar and five spiced barbeque chicken. If that’s not enough to tantalise your taste buds, how about the duck and foie gras gyoza and pan fried sea bass with shiso butter? YUM!
Sounds delicious, but is it? I haven’t had the pleasure of dining here yet but its definitely on my restaurant wishlist. I would love to know what you think if you get there before me!
