Description: 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!

What an amazing place! Great location, nice relaxed vibe and food was phenomenal. It is usually quite difficult to please a table of 20 or so women out for a work celebration, but we all loved our meals and drinks and service was awesome. We will all be back.

We went to the Greedy Buddha for a work dinner. It was a magical evening with great ambiance, delicious food and brilliant service. Can’t wait to go back and try out some other delicious foods.

We went to the Greedy Buddha restaurant for a birthday dinner and we were absolutely disappointed. All of the food from the starters to the mains had no flavour. The meat was underseasoned and had that meaty/ couchy taste. We didn't bother to try desert based on our first 2 courses. We definitely won't be returning.

My wife an I felt like having Thai food and it was a while since we last visited Greedy Buddha so decided to have dinner there. The restaurant was revamped and had a good ambiance although not full, surprising for a Friday evening. Starters were vert tasty and we were looking forward to an equally good main course but were disappointed. The Pad Thai was tasteless and the wok dish with duck was also not up to scratch. Service was good so perhaps an off day for the chef?

Firstly, thank you for revisiting our restaurant, I think it is safe to say that your previous visits were nothing short of amazing, hence you returned.Accept my humble apology on the chef's behalf for dropping the ball on that occasion.Allow us to make your next Thai dinner a dazzling one. See you soon.
