Greedy Buddha

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

What a DISAPPOINTMENT. Firstly there is no set waiter per table, anyone serves anyone, and i don't have a problem with this, HOWEVER, when you give 1 waiter an order and then a few mins later another 1 comes to you to ask if everything is ok, obv not knowing that we are still waiting for something, then that's a PROBLEM !!! - this happened a few times. the restaurant was still quiet at the time we went in, but everything took long to come to us. We ordered drinks, which was ok - too much ice for my liking. The starters, they were so bland it was like eating cardboard. no taste whatsoever. we didn't even eat like 2 pieces of each thing and asked the waiter to take it away, she didn't even bother to ask why, or if everything was ok. Then there was mains....we had the ramen with duck and crispy pork. Once again, no taste at all ! the "crispy" pork was no where near crispy, the mash tasted horrible. The ramen had no taste...the duck was so dry, it was like grated biltong. We barely ate a quarter of our meals and asked the waiter to take them away and bring us the bill and once again she didn't ask as why or even if we wanted to take the food away. the manager (i presume) was standing by the door with the rest of the staff...they where very quiet as mentioned...never came up to us to ask if everything was ok or anything. TERRIBLE FOOD and PATHETIC SERVICE. Don't even bother visiting.Please accept my sincere apologies regarding your visit to our establishment in November 2018.We, at Greedy Buddha always try to exceed our guests expectations.I have messaged you privately, please reply so we can move forward and turn your dissatisfaction into a wow experience in the near future.

We had a range of menu items and everything was very tasty: pad Thai, honey chicken, duck spring rolls, rice paper wraps etc. We had arrived fairly late and had to have our starters and mains very close together as the kitchen was closing at 9 so better to go earlier!

Siam Restaurant

The rolled-up ice cream experience here was awesome. The ingredients were fresh and the outcome was absolutely delicious, and they made it right in front of us which was novel to see. It provided a window into how things are done in the east: live, as you arriveThere are a variety of options to try out and I suggest you come with a semi-filled tummy as the portion is quite generous, and we'll worth the amount you pay!

Kung Thai Restaurant & Take Away

The success of Kung Thai Durban North has now given birth to what Nina (Chef and proprietor) and Kit (proprietor) calls their "new baby" in the village in Umhlanga. The name Kung Thai, "City of Thai" and the logo of the dragonfly was inspired by the fusio

I think this restaurant is over rated. I love Thai and I always go when I can find one however the taste here is only average. The service continues the theme of middle of the road. A missed opportunity in view of the excellent location in the village
