The Buddha Bar, exclusive interior and extremely popular restaurant in Dubai

We have been to many top restaurants in the world. Most of these restaurant experiences are extraordinary because of the cuisine. In the Buddha Bar, the cuisine is of very high quality but the real experience can be found in the style of the restaurant. The interior is rather dark, on the left side you have a glass wall facing the marina, red chandeliers light the room, in the middle you have an enormous golden Buddha statue, on the right there is a bar where they play live music from 22:30. The other decorations are from Japanese and Chinese origine. What type of food do they serve? Well we have to look in the Asian kitchen. As starter, we had a mixed sushi plate of excellent quality. As main course we had a Thai curry from Tiger Prawns and a Filet Mignon. They had a good choice of wine by the glass and the wine card was excellent.

After dinner, you have to go to the bar on the right side. Make sure you reserve for the restaurant table and the bar, without it you will not have a place. Today, on January 9, the Buddha Bar was the 9th popular restaurant of Dubai on Tripadvisor. For us this is one of the most special restaurants we have ever been to. If we have to recommend other restaurants in the world with an exceptional atmosphere, our top experiences are The Breeze in Bangkok and “Le Cinq” in Paris. The Buddha Bar in Dubai is in our top three atmosphere restaurants and in good company.

We hebben reeds vele top restaurants in de wereld bezocht. De meeste van deze restaurants zijn uitzonderlijk vanwege de gerechten. In de Buddha Bar is de kwaliteit van de gerechten enorm hoog maar de echte ervaring wordt verwezenlijkt in de stijl van het restaurant. Het interieur is redelijk donker, aan de linker zijde heb je een glazen muur met zicht op de haven, rode lusters verlichten de ruimte, in het midden staat een enorm gouden Boeddha beeld, en aan de rechterkant is een bar waar ze live muziek spelen vanaf 22:30. De andere decoraties in het restaurant zijn van Japanse en Chinese origine. Welke keuken wordt er geserveerd? Hiervoor moeten we naar Asië kijken. Als voorgerecht namen we een Sushi schotel van uitstekende kwaliteit,. Voor ons hoofdgerecht kozen we een Thaise Curry met gamba's en de ossenhaas. Ze hadden een ruime keuze wijn per glas en de wijnkaart was uitmuntend.

Na het diner raden we aan nog iets te drinken aan de bar. Zowel voor het restaurant en de bar dien je vooraf te reserveren. Vandaag, op 9 januari staat de Buddha Bar als 9de gerangschikt in de lijst van meest populaire restaurants in Dubai. Voor ons is dit één van de meest intrigerende restaurants die we hebben bezocht. Als we andere restaurants met een uitzonderlijke ambiance zouden aanbevelen in de wereld, zijn onze topervaringen, The Breeze in Bangkok en “Le Cinq” in Paris. De Buddha Bar is in onze sfeer top drie en in goed gezelschap..

  10. I love watching videos of ballroom dancing – I love dancing.
    I looked at your post on the Buddha Bar. It is quite a place, but you know I wonder – would it be OK if someone called a bar “The Jesus Bar” or the “Mohammed Bar” ? I see the statue of Buddha among the tables – would it be all right to place a statue of Jesus in the middle of a restaurant? Frankly I wonder if Thai or Japanese Buddhists don’t get a bit offended at this. (You know it is not allowed to buy Buddha amulets in Thailand if you are not a Buddhist – of course I am sure tourists do anyway.) I was just wondering…
