The Buddah Bar is back in town. Having a soft spot for this, yes admittedly chain of high-end pan-Asian restaurants cum nightspots of at least as known for their collection of Lounge Music CDs as for their take on westernised Asian cooking. So one has to be very clear about what one sets out to do at the BB: it is not a competitor to the very authentic Japanese and south-east Asian restaurants in town. However, its second London incarnation opened in late 2012 is now in Knightsbridge, the first having been in a vault underneath a bridge on the Embankment (which was fun at the time, but with the benefit of hindsight possibly not the best idea…) and now it finally seems to be firing on all cylinders with good, if not unforgettable food, good service and and an atmosphere and interior that is in holding with BBs other global branches and compares very competitively with other London “party” restaurants. But as any place in this category it has to work for you. My view is that it is at least worth a try.
