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!

So if there is one way of eating that I really enjoy is the sociable style of tapas or mezze. Well the Greedy Buddha will not disappoint :) Great service, flavourful food and some good wines on the list. A must try.

I keep telling myself to try more places in Durban, and the only reason i didn't do it more often is because of this restaurant

They serve ingredients of excellent quality, cooked to perfection and with unsurpassed and ever-surprising taste. The combination of flavours, ingredients, sauces and spices is just unbelievable

Choose what you like: meat, fish, ramen and of course all kinds of asian-fusion dishes... even the sides are amazing !!!

And they top this up with a very caring and friendly service

I will keep coming back to this spot forever and recommend it to everyone

Delightfully tasty duck & pancakes with dim sum for starters! In addition, shredding the duck was awesome fun. I would certainly revisit Greedy Buddha.

My only criticism is that the food should come out faster & warmer.

The new waiter dumisani offered friendly service, fully knowledgeable about the meals and very understanding of our diet requirements. The chef is brilliant! He whipped up a vegan dessert( which by the way is not on the menu) within minutes.
