Nothing too fancy, just friendly with great food

A local restaurant, close to where we live. Ideal for a quick informal meal. Food is fresh and delicious.

I feel like this isn't quite a fair account of mooki. It's a solid good, but definitely not very good and certainly not average. I guess as a student going out for lunch my main problem with my meals I've had here are largely to do with size. It's not usually a reason I mark a place down, but when... More

Small and quaint restaurant with more than just noodles. I have had the coriander chickem curry twice now and it is delicious. Not a fancy restaurant more a neighbourhood relaxing place. Very casual vibe but lovely for a different type of date. Owners are super friendly and make you feel welcome. The salads are also really different and amazing.

This place was such fun with such a lovely vibe and great staff. The food was tasty - I highly recommend the halloumi starter, which wasn't our first choice but it's not going to be my last visit so I look forward to trying the calamari starter (which was recommended to me) next time.

This smaller establishment is a must visit for anyone who enjoys Thai or Vietnamese foods. Great food and great hosts. One drawback is that it can become unpleasantly noisy inside if there is a larger table booked so sit on the deck for a fantastic meal. They also accept BYO. (Try the steak or ribs)

Small, intimate, great Glenwood venue. Glenwood inhabitants frequent. The ribs - amazing! Noodles great too. Worth a visit

First visit a couple of days ago certainly won't be the last although I confess I was rather disappointed with the prawn curry, large prawns but only 4, rather mean & overpriced @ R105. Starters went down a treat, fish cakes yummy as were the tempura prawns, halloumi & calamari. The coriander chicken was the highlight & a prawn salad... More

Love it. Very small, cosy and casual restaurant with friendly, welcoming hosts. Food is awesome and really good value. I can't get enough of the Coriander Chicken...yummy! Love going there.

Informal, unusual and good food. One must understand that it is very informal-but the food is great. The seating and cutlery is rudimentary, but this does not detract from a good meal
