Buddha Bar restaurant boasts perfect pre-party food
Time Out Dubai staff
When making a booking, it’s likely you’ll be asked whether you’d prefer to share a large table with others (ie, strangers), or occupy your own high table. This is standard for Siddharta Lounge, since it’s a casual-yet-classy venue serving Asian-Mediterranean fare in the form of salmon carpaccio and goat’s cheese salad antipasti, satay skewers, yaki soba and desserts such as baked Alaska. All these dainty serving dishes are immaculately presented and tasty to boot, but they’re accompanied by eye-watering price tags. Ultimately, however, this isn’t a place to come and get you fill – it’s a place to nibble tapas-style dishes and look immaculate while looking at similarly immaculate nibblers.
