The place is gorgeous but the positives stop there. So we came here late Thursday night and it was empty: 11 people including two prostitutes working the 8 old men spread out along the bar area. The place probably holds 800 people. The food is...More

Buddha Bar is what you expect, with great sushi/sashimi, and plenty of people watching opportunities. Easy to pick the expats, and those looking for fun

The settings are really impressive: a huge, three-storey high restaurant room ended by a gigantic gilded Buddha statue, and surrounded by a mezzanine bar (with a smoking section). The food we ordered was outstanding: a creative fusion between Asian and European flavors which we found...More

Dropped in for a quick lunch and a beer. Very nice salads and friendly service from English speaking staff. Close to Maidan and the centre.☺

We were tourists, dressed in nice clothes, and I was wearing white-olive FILA sneakers. The guard on the entrance said something like: "in these shoes? no way." and we didn't even had a chance to enter this "bar". too much judging for this fake Buddah!

Its atmosphere is nice. Kalyan is well made. You can find more options in menu. It is in popular location in city center.

How is this Buddha Bar from a nightlife point of view? Would it be a good/lively place to go on a late Thursday for drinks?
