This is by far the BEST Asian-infused restaurant I’ve been to in the WORLD. Absolutely amazing and the chef is extremely interactive and accommodating!

Really mediocre. Expected better. Was looking for a Thai restaurant in Umhlanga and this is the highest rated. Really cannot see why. Music poor choice, service inexperienced, food so-so

At Greedy Buddha we aim to offer our guests a refreshing and unique approach to dining in SA. We are not an Asian restaurant but our menu and our food philosophy is inspired by the tastes and flavours of South East Asia. You can dine entirely on our Tapas style menu with over 40 different dishes to choose from....Or you can take the more traditional route and have a starter, main and dessert...The choice is yours. 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 way that leaves you wanting more!
