Our food philosophy is to take the freshest and most seasonal ingredients and create dishes that fuse the very best techniques and flavours of Eastern and Western cuisine. The results speak for themselves. Call it Asian inspired or call it fusion, we will charm your taste buds in a

Such tasty food when you're looking for some Asian inspired food in Durban. Their Malaysian bang bang noodles as well as their ribs are personal favorites.

Greedy Buddy offers a good variety of Asuna dishes and sushi. There are different noodle styles with different meats and flavours to combine unique tastes. And the cocktails complement the asian tastes! Highly recommended

The food was ok. The pad Thai is not really as in Thailand but an interesting interpretation. The other noodle dish was soaked too much in the sauce. Sushi good. Super friendly service.

Our dishes are unique which means there's always a Greedy Buddha twist and a secret ingredient added. Hopefully the next time around we can blow your taste buds away.

That's exactly what the creator of the menu loves to hear, " W.O.W." The flavors are unique. There's texture. And portions are generous. Hopefully ,date nights are a very frequent occurrence.
