INTRO
Who could resist an invitation to lunch at the Oyster Box and sample sushi from their new seafood bar?
Not me.
Not only was weather balmy enough to to sit out on the terrace and enjoy the amazing view, but the sushi and seafood were great and the monkeys hugely entertaining.
It seems the monkeys which roam the neighbourhood are particularly enamored of the sugar sachets on the terrace tables.
Despite the many hilarious attempts by the staff to dissuade then, they kept swooping down from the roof, scampering over to the tables and grabbing as many sachets as they could before leaping back to safety on the roof. And then they came back for more.

INTRO
If this review of Greedy Buddha reads like I’m damning it with faint praise, I am. In a way.
It’s simply that the new Greedy Buddha at Gateway is not as good as its first incarnation in Durban North. But if you hadn’t experienced the food there, you would probably disagree with this review.
The Durban North version was a hole in the wall kind of place where dining was confined to a windswept terrace. When it rained it was bleak.
But the food, Asian fusion, was sublime.
