We make an annual pilgrammage to Buddakan for my wife's birthday, and I am very pleased to report back a positive experience.
We had noticed over the last couple of years that the quality of the food was off from our first trip (which was 3 years ago). Still enjoyable, but not on par with either the reputation, expectations, or cost.
But this trip was wonderful. All of the food was delicious and showed a focused attention to detail that I felt was missing the last couple of trips (and my wife had also brought up as well, so it wasn't just me). Same for cocktails... just delicious.
So if you had written it off in the past, it may be worth another try.
