please help: fun, lively, asian in manhattan
we have heard buddakan is a little overrated. maybe i'm wrong. any suggestions? thanks
You might look into Chinatown Brasserie if you are looking for upscale, fun, etc. I've not eaten at Buddakhan (sp?) or Tao.
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.)
