Beluga Restaurant started trading in 1999 to immediate acclaim by being voted one of the Top 60 restaurants in the world. In 2006, Beluga was re-launched with a new menu including our famous sushi and dim sums. Today, Beluga remains one of South Africa’s most loved restaurants. We believe the secret to our success is in never becoming complacent about our menu or service.

In KZN, we currently have the Beluga restaurant at Gateway Theatre of Shopping (Umhlanga) which boasts a new coal fire, Shisa ‘Nyama experience; as well as a new Beluga restaurant at the Ballito Junction Mall (Ballito), where we have a Pearl Bar specialising in our famous sushi.

Now under new ownership and management, at Beluga Gateway and Beluga Ballito all food items are prepped and made in house. We also produce our own flavoured syrups used in the cocktails making our cocktails one of a kind. Above all, we aim to deliver an epic dining experience for you, our guest. From cuisine to beverage to service, we strive to deliver the best.
