A lovely dining experience
We will be back again next time we are in Melbourne
Loved it! Visiting from Adelaide and happened upon Buddha during a walk.
Staff were super friendly and food was absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend it.
The Buddha is always an outstanding place to eat here.
Fantastic service, food and staff. We loved it and would definately come back. For a pop up it was brilliant.
Loved it - our favourite place. 👍 Chocolate spring rolls - yum!
Great food as always. Lots of choice, even for our coeliac friend. Service was only okay, we had to hunt down the waitress to get drinks! Apart from that a very enjoyable meal at a reasonable price.
Food and location so so good but it is the staff at this place that make it so special. Funny, polite, attentive, professional and downright fun. You know when you see the same staff in a restaurant over the years that it is GOOD place not just to eat but to work. Highly recommend
Chocolate Buddha is my reliable go-to when attending evening events in the city, so thankfully, Pop Up Buddha is around while they are renovating the original restaurant. The pop-up space is more interesting than the old space as it's a split level with interesting angles. The service is impeccable as usual, with the charming Lukas. My only quibble was the balance of the meal - salmon don - was mostly rice, an ok quantity of salmon but minuscule amount of vegetables - 1 shiso leaf & a few tiny slivers of cucumber and a few strands of alfalfa, making it very carb heavy.
Quality food and service. Even though it was in the pop up restaurant the high standards did not drop.
Tasty Japanese fusion, with always great service from attentive, friendly staff!
I am so grateful Pop Up Buddha is there whilst Chocolate Buddha is being renovated. The food is delicious, the atmosphere ambient and the staff very helpful. We shared in our group of 7 which gave us a wonderful variety of flavours. Highly recommend for a long Sunday lunch with friends.
I have been many time to Chocolate Buddha and have not been disappointed with the food or service
The service was fantastic and great food, it was a very relaxing evening with friends
Love this place. Service is friendly and prompt. Food delicious and as we told them we had to be out for a show, they were really accommodating in getting everything out to us so we could get to our show.
It's easy to book here and I am always made to feel welcome. The waiting staff are friendly and helpful. The on tap beer is good and the food is fine. Not a huge menu choice which suits me as I do not like spending time ending through endless choices. Just pick something and it will be fine.
Great food, friendly service, easy to get to location -never disappoints.
I went to the Chocolate Buddha for 2 dinners this week. I always look forward to going there. As a coeliac, I'm confident that the food is safe for me and I get to eat in a normal restaurant setting. Usually, when restaurants and cafes are gluten free, they are also vegan and paleo and vegetarian. The wait staff are lovely, welcoming and friendly. Can't wait to go back there when I visit Melb in Oct :-)
We always love coming here! We were served by Ellie who was very lovely, and kindly swapped our dish when we accidentally ordered the wrong thing! We were very appreciative!!
I'm a vegan and my partner enjoys seafood. We were both catered for and the meal was enjoyable. The Sake was also delicious and very warming on a cold winter's evening in Melbourne. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the surrounding sights.
We always love Chocolate Buddha and the pop-up version is no exception.
We were very happy that the Pop Up was across from the restaurant renovation - we are great fans of Chocolate Buddah, so having the Pop Up so close was wonderful. We met friends who were visiting from New Zealand and they loved the food and we had a great time! Definitely will recommend.
Excellent food and service. Cannot wait for Chocolate Buddha to reopen if this is a taste of what to expect.
Lucas and team always make us feel special. Love this place.
The service here is great, as a Coeliac sufferer (strict Gluten Free diet required) they took note and looked after me, and I didn't get sick!!
This is my third visit to the popup and I'm finding the menu is not as good as the Chocolate Buddha. I miss the spicy chicken amongst other things and the food isn't quite the standard. I think I'll wait for their return to Chocolate Buddha before I go again. That said, everything else about the popup version is as good, if not better than previously. I love that we can sit on the balcony with a river view!
Convenient location but food service was very slow. Despite being assured that our food will arrive quickly so we will make our show at 7.30, (we arrived at 5.45) we did not get our mains until after 7 pm so we really had to scarf down and only made the show with literally seconds to spare. Food was good though and there are good gf and vegan options but they really gotta work on the speed of food service.
Very good casual dining restaurant with friendly and efficient service and very reliable food.
The food is phenomenal, the Waiters are fun, friendly and helpful. An all round lovely evening
We had a really great night and the staff were FABULOUS!
The space at Pop-Up Buddha is smaller than the other premises, which is undergoing a big renovation, but it's an aesthetically interesting space with some views of the river. There are a lot of new items on the menu, which was exciting- as a vegaquarian, I was spoilt for choice. I had a brown rice poke bowl with tofu & it was delicious- although not spicy, as suggested on the menu. Service was friendly but a bit slow, given there were few customers, but a very nice dining experience in the new - if temporary, space.
Great food, fab people. Looking forward to my next visit.
Fantastic as always
Location is good but it is nothing like Chocolate Buddha. My yakitori chicken and vegetables was underwhelming, the chips were not very crispy. My partners lunch was OK.
Our waitress was friendly happy and funny! She made the evening that much more enjoyable
A very pleasant surprise for a "pop up" restaurant. Beautiful food, great service. We'll be back!
Had a fabulous night. Great place for families, especially outside so if the kids are a little noisy it isn’t too distracting for the other diners. Will definitely return
Fantastic host that made us feel incredibly welcome. Followed by great food and service
Great ambiance with friendly professional staff. Good clean fresh food. Location in Fed Square is superb for locals and tourists alike.
10 people on a great table after going the comedy festival
Amazing food great location service was great except for one waitress who thought we were having too much and repeatedly told us to quieten down
We were talked into dessert and it was fantastic
Gave the birthday girl a complimentary dessert too
One of our all time favs. Great service, friendly staff and delicious food.
