Love this small little place in Glenwood. Such a relaxed vibe and the food is so tasty. Definitely recommended for gluten free noodle lovers!

We went for a cycle and felt a bit peckish. Called and asked if it was ok to pop in very casual (shorts and tee shirts)- not a problem they said. To start we had the tempura prawns and spare ribs (photo). Prawns came with a wasabi, mayo sauce and a sweet chilli sauce for dipping- perfectly cooked. The ribs... More

A nice intimate restaurant setting for about 40 people. Received a warm welcome so it was not surprising to see that the restairant was fully booked. The menu is a mixture of Asian dishes. All dishes ordered were beautifully presented and most of all delicious. Will definitely be back for more.

Stopped at Mooki Noodle Bar for a bite to eat. I was blown away. Lovely quaint place. Ordered the pork dumplings to start. Full of flavour. The broth it came in was flavourful. I then ordered the thick egg noodles, with pork fillet in a yakitori sauce. Absolutely fantastic. I will definately be coming back. Very friendly service and people.... More

What a gem! Friends took me here on my return to Durban and the food was very tasty! Starters to die for....I do recommend salt and pepper squid...main course was a bit much but nothing wrong with a 'doggy bag'! Service excellent! Highly recommended!

Delicious food. I've switched to Google places because you don't have to write a review of a 100 characters.

Mooki Noodles always has good food, well prepared and delicious. The decor and food theme is modern, urban, edgy Japanese, not any relative of those traditional places with paper screens and pictures of misty mountains and gnarled trees. The vibe is bright, positive, youthful and cheerful. The food drifts around the far east with tastes from several countries. Its billed... More

This restaurant is nothing fancy to look at... but the food and the vibe more than make up for that! Really awesome place with really amazing food! Well worth a visit. Make a booking though - they have limited space and were actually having to turn people away at the door!
