ABOUT BUDDAKAN AT THE PLAYGROUND
Stephen Starr's Buddakan at The Playground instantly transports Atlantic City guests to an ancient Chinese village complete with rock gardens, thatched roofs and a dramatic twilight sky. A gigantic golden Buddha gazes over the 26-seat communal table made of glowing alabaster resin. With its dreamlike ambiance, Buddakan offers an enchanting fine dining setting perfect for special nights out or even special events.
The menu portrays an innovative interpretation of modern Asian cuisine that matches the décor in terms of creativity and inspiration. Buddakan's signature dishes include char grilled aged beef with Szechuan fries and a watercress salad and edamame ravioli in a Sauternes-shallot broth. Guests will feel relaxed and indulged in this exotic and comfortable environment at this Caesars Atlantic City pan-Asian restaurant.

"The dining style is sharing plates, which is quite a bargain in a town where restaurant prices can go through the roof."
"After conquering Manhattan, restauranteur Stephen Starr brought his uber-hip pan-Asian cuisine south to the Pier Shops at Caesars…"
