Private Hire


Greedy Buddha Functions

At GB, we aim to offer an unrivalled experience for any special occasion, be it Birthday, Anniversary or Company event.

Our unique Pan-Asian food style lends itself perfectly to groups and parties. Offering a stylish, contemporary venue, located at the very heart of Gateway, Umhlanga, featuring an exclusive cocktail terrace and indoor restaurant, second to none.

Whether you require a traditional sit down function or a canapé style tapas event our cocktail deck provides the perfect location for your special event.

We comfortably seat 60-80 guests on our deck for a formal sit-down dinner or transform the deck into a party area with standing / dancing room for 120…….the option is yours.

For larger events the entire venue can be taken, offering the best of both worlds. Seat up to 140 guests then clear the deck after dinner for a party to remember!

We will be happy to meet with you and help plan your event from the DJ or live music, to the menu, and even the colour of the balloons!!

We’re here to help….just ask?

Terms and Conditions for party functions

GB has 2 separate dining areas…
Our cocktail deck is multi-purpose. We can hold 60-80 for seated events or for non-seated functions we can cater for 120 people.
Our inside seating area (air-conditioned) can seat up to 65 if fully utilised. It is possible to open both areas up to create 1 larger space for 120-140 guests. Equally we are happy to provide parties for any smaller number guests.

Private functions
Should you require a completely private event you may either book our deck or the entire restaurant depending on your requirements. There is no venue hire charge for private functions, but a minimum spend applies.
Deck parties will have private access to the smoking area and a private bar. We are happy to arrange a DJ or live music for your private functions where the entire venue is booked. Music can be played till 12am. Whatever you need we are happy to work with you to ensure your event is memorable.
