Excellent service from walking in to paying the bill. Food is subjective but definitely elegantly presented and to me it is quite tasty.
Lucas at the door is always a gem. We had a show to get to and he had our food and drinks sent with enough time for us to enjoy and have room for a dessert.
We visit often and it’s because the food is wonderful and so is the service.
Outstanding as always! Thanks to Lucas and the whole team CB is wonderful.
Food was amazing. The waiter went out of his way to ensure one of our party with allergies was catered for. Excellent service.
Great new menu in a lovely revamped space. Same excellent service. Caters well for any food allergies.
The restaurant is an open and very pleasant. We were surprised to find that once seated, we felt secluded amongst the hustle and bustle of a busy restaurant. The food was excellent as was the service. We highly recommend the Chocolate Buddha and look forward to returning to explore the menu further.
Please get some Campari!!! I think the range of alcoholic beverages has decreased since the revamp?
So much fun sitting at sushi train.
Food as fabulous as ever but with more variety with sushi train.
Could not fault anything.
lovely team + beautiful renovation. Enjoyed the food too.
Been going to Chocolate Buddha for years and just love the new fit out and menu - much moreso than the original. Had wonderful ocean trout and inside out salmon roll - both delicious and sake of course :-)
Beautifully renovated this is one of our favorite places to dine. Food and service is always great.
Love the newly renovated space. Many great new additions to the menu. Lucas and his staff are always on the ball and can never fault the service, or the food. This remains our 'go-to' place for dinner when we are seeing a show or concert. Great location in the fabulous Fed Square.
Good food and good service while sitting outside on a beautiful warm night in the heart of Melbourne. We'll be back.
I waited 30 minutes for my wine the food came before my drink even though I reminded the staff multiple times
Great food and great service. Can’t wait to go back again. Highly recommend.
Great service from lovely staff, very accommodating for a vegan and helpful with menu choices. Food and drinks were good and the overall experience was great.
The service was very ordinary. The food was very ordinary
Delicious food but expensive. We didn't leave full which was a real pity.
This place had very friendly, attentive and accommodating staff, especially the manager. We booked a late post-concert dinner and even though some of the popular main dishes were sold out, managed to have a delicious and satisfying dinner - which goes to show the depth and quality of the menu. The food was well presented and delicately executed. We mainly had share menu items and got to a good representation of what was on offer (but not the noodles - that will be next time!). Everyone at the table had wide smiles at the end of the meal.
After the initial warm greeting from Mr MaitreD (ex FireChief) we were shown promptly to our table. However it did take some time for wait staff to arrive. This seemed odd as they were not that busy. Once we ordered the food arrived quickly, even before our cider and beer had arrived, which was a little disappointing too. As usual the food was excellent and servings delicious and generous.
The food is refreshing and tasty. The wine choices are well matched to the cuisine. I am so pleased with the location and atmosphere. The sushi train is an exciting addition. The staff are courteous and timely.
Great food for sharing with a perfect mix of different flavours. We particularly enjoyed the noodle wrapped dumplings. The new fit-out provides a more intimate space.
Liked the old decor better, but the new one is quite attractive. Food excellent as usual.
Fabulous new fitout, great location and the food and wine list excellent.
Upscale without being expensive. Such a beautiful place. So thoughtful all the way down to the gorgeous dinnerware. All the food was delicious and the service was great. Highly recommended.
Lovely to have Chocolate Buddha back. The new decor is sophisticated and warm. The food remains excellent and the service welcoming. Can't wait to return to try the new sushi train.
Staff were so friendly and welcoming. Our waiter made suggestions for us it was our first time dining at chocolate Buddha . Ambiance was relaxed yet intimate . Food was delicious and prepared very fast.
6 for pre show dinner.
Service attentive and SWIFT.
We shunted around from from Sushi Train to Communal Table and had heaps of fun. Yummy food.
Mind you, I’m a bit of a fan.
We enjoyed our experience at Chocolate Budha immensely - The quality of the dishes were impeccable - The staff were extremely willing to please - We will definitely be back to dine again - The ambience is divine and very appealing
Thank you for a great experience and while the noise level for us was good, it was not a crowded day.
The barman needs to be more friendly and polite.
Food was delicious and the staff very friendly and helpful. Will certainly go back
Outstanding vegetarian selection! Lovely And considerate Attentive staff . the renovation and the new Sushi train are very cool. A very Melbourne dining experience .
Fabulous place - great staff, food, atmosphere, etc - highly recommended.
New renovations are excellent. The manager is always incredibly friendly as are the staff. Delicious food and at our lunch it wasn't too noisy which can be a problem in some places. So central and convenient apart from the fire alarm which went off several times!
Our visit is always fun, relaxed and special. The food is amazing and service impeccable. And the people are just wonderful looking after us with a warm familiarity. Will be back x
Great to have Chocolate Buddha back. Food and service still excellent. Love the new fit out too. We’ll be back to try the sushi train.
Good ingredients served simply. Perfect for a light but filling lunch. Service excellent and friendly.
Service was AMAZING - thanks for being so considerate about my dietary requirements - please consider getting Coealic Australia approved!!!!
