I have been to Buddha a few times over the weekend at night. The place is such a great escape on a Friday night, with amazing RnB, Hiphop and generally great dancing music. What I really like about the place is that a lot of people really go to enjoy the music and dance- it has the feeling of a... More

I would not recommend this restaurant to any of my friends. The food was amazing but the service was terrible. We finished our starters and mains and did not get the menu for the desert. Waited to long to be approach and nothing. And not tea or coffee. It looks like they just wanted us to leave the restaurant. I... More

when i first saw the name I was really excited after being so many times in the same restaurant in Sharm el Sheikh. Although I wasn't not pleased at all during and after dinner. We were a 10 people table, the only ones inside and still we had a too long wait for our food. Sushi was not as good... More

The sushi and the staff were just one word 'Superb', unfortunately I cant remember his name but this dark English-speaking gentleman in glasses is the bomb, his product knowledge, interpersonal skill and general etiquette was just great. i'll definitely be returning to this place. LOVED IT!!

Very fresh and tasty asian food in the beautiful place of corniche of Dakar plateau. The Little Buddha team is kind and welcoming guests. If you want to enjoy longer, the lounge offers "soirees" on Friday and Saturfay.

First time last time,The quality and price are Bad!!. poor service English speaking staff try but wait times and bringing the wrong dishes and they dont seem to care. Its a tourist trap. You can find far better places to eat and spend half the money, It reminds me of Indian fast food in a country in Europe.

There is nothing to criticize really, the personnel does try, but the cuisine is not accomplished. The taste is lacking in refinement (for the price), the presentation is lacking elegance (for the price). But if you are in the mall and hungry, it is ok to stop by for a meal.

With so many good food options, there is no reason to eat at this large, impersonal restaurant. The food was average and I won't bother to go back
