The 16,000 Square foot space in the Chelsea Market of the Meatpacking District was designed by Christian Liaigre and is owned by Stephen Starr of the Philadelphia based Starr Restaurant Group.
Set up like a Chinese mansion, the restaurant boasts a two-story great hall with chandeliers hanging above a 30-person table, and off of that are several small dining rooms with Chinese antiquity painted on the walls.
The Buddakan Restaurant was featured in the movie Sex and the City. (Rehearsal dinner scene.)
