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

Greedy Buddha offers tasty Asian food with a variety to chose from. Perfect ambiance, especial outside on the deck. I would recommend the chocolate brownie for dessert, it's simply delicious!

If you enjoy sushi, you have to try the sushi platters at Greedy Buddha. You've never tasted sushi this good with so much thought behind every dish.
