    A huge gold Buddha beams down as you live it up, modern Mandarin-style, in this dark dramatically lit palace. Contemporary Chinese dishes and the house Zen-gria keep the Asian spirit flying.

    When you walk into Buddakan you will feel immediately transported to somewhere in Southeast Asia, where the Far East and the East Coast mix as seamlessly as sushi and soy.

    In the realm of deserts, nothing comes close to dip sum doughnuts! With 3 different sauces, it's hard to have just one!

    As with all Starr restaurants, great decor with subpar food and service. You end up paying for the brand not the experience.

    Sadly heard rumors that this particular item was taken off the menu, but the "Angry Lobster" (huge lobster chunks, in mashed potatos & mixed vegetables) was the most satisfyingly delicious meal EVER.

    Secret off-menu item: order the Red Dragon Tofu! Even if you aren't vegetarian or vegan (and it is both), you'll love the deep fried tempura, the spicy red dragon sauce and fresh crisp wok veggies.

    I expected this to be a bit over-hyped, but the food was really good. Service was solid, and the vibe in the place was great. I would definitely go again. The tomato salad was superb as an opener.
