you dont have a 2 week waiting list for this many years if your food is not good.

and Buddakhan was never a place "to be seen"..maybe in new york..but not in philly. pat burrell has been seen at the irish rover too..doesnt mean call Zagat asap.

His response prompted my "I eat with a fork" disclaimer. I knew the rest of this was coming.

I'll give an honest review when I'm finished. I'm eating there for free so I have nothing invested except valet parking and maybe a tip if I run my bill over $150 (it's me and my girl but I like to indulge)

Buddakhan is the Citizen Kane of Philly restaurants.

Mom was in Houston for a wedding this weekend, brought home some Papasitos chips and salsa.  Forgot how good the salsa was with the chipotle

It's pretty amazing but I completely understand what you're talking about. It's a bunch of high society types who are more into the scene than they are the food.

My Buddakan review:
Drinks: Guilt - Champagne, Grand Marnier, Blood Orange Juice
Wasn't bad, I drank beer and snuck sips from my girls because everyone kept saying they have good mixed drinks. I didn't think it was anything special.

Apps:
Crispy Shrimp And Scallop Spring Rolls plum sauce, spicy mustard -- Was good to very good, but nothing special
King Crab Tempura with ponzu sauce -- biggest disappointment of the night. The sauce tasted like Italian dressing with too much vinegar. You could hardly taste the crab because the tempura drowned the flavor. Tempura failed to enhance the flavor, which is it's sole purpose.

Entrees:
Glazed Alaskan Black Cod with Chilli Eggplant and Black Bean Relish -- Cod was the best thing we ate all night. It was phenominal.

Filet Mignon - Meh. I've had better filet at Longhorns. They gave you Tako Chips which are basically thin tortillas with a bland sauce. The sauce for the filet was very average.

Sides: Wasabi Mashed Potatoes -- Very good mashed potatoes with a flavor kick. Different but good.

The restaurant is cool but it's loud as hell. From the pictures it looked quiet and serene. Overall it wouldn't crack my top 50 restaurants I've ever eaten at.
