    I don't think buddakan is overrated. It is exactly what you said: fun and lively. The food is not mind-blowing great but it is better than most of the overhyped Asian fusion places. Actually if you order right you can get a great fun meal out of Buddakan (search Buddakan on the board and there are plenty of recommendations of what dishes to order.)

        You might look into Chinatown Brasserie if you are looking for upscale, fun, etc. I've not eaten at Buddakhan (sp?) or Tao.
