Buddha Bar Restaurant Review: Enter into a realm of sensual serenity at this cavernous temple of good times where a wraparound bar and lounge overlook the exotically furnished restaurant below. A hip, handsome crowd of international jet-setters frequent this still-hot classic Parisian venue, home of the Nirvana-esque soundtrack that has seduced listeners the world over. Food-wise, specialties range from chicken salad and spiced tuna tartare to lacquered duck with crystallized fruits. Other suggestions include salmon and tuna sashimi, shrimps curry and chicken tikka. Served for lunch, a bento box gives a nod to the Japanese tradition. On Sundays, the brunch from noon to 4 p.m. features kid-focused activities. There’s a well-stocked wine cellar, notably with sakés.
