Review of Buddakan

325 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19106

Overall Rating


Out server was incredibly knowledgeable about which items were gluten free or how to make adjustments to make them gluten free. There used to be a gluten free menu pre-pandemic that wasn't available when we dined here. But Shaffer knew enough that I felt confident with my order. Additionally, every time the food arrived the food runner announced that it was gluten free before I could even ask/confirm. I felt more comfortable with dining here safely than any other restaurant so far. Not to mention, it was delicious! We will absolutely return. I ordered the sea bass, lobster fried rice, and the modified creme brulee.
