Stayed nearby and decided to try this place based on some reviews. It is quaint, food was really tasty, reasonably priced and wine is reasonable.

This has to be one of my more moving dining experiences. When making the journey to come and enjoy this restaurant you must put your thoughts in context of why it exists in the first place. This is a glimmer of hope for women who have lost almost everything. They come from one of the poorest countries in the world... More

I recently celebrated a birthday by dining with friends at Mu'ooz. What a great cause! Mu’ooz provides employment and trainee-ships for African refugee women. For women who have suffered traumatic experiences of war, poverty and had little opportunity for education, Mu'ooz gives both employment and new opportunities that help the healing process. Authentic North-East African fare, the food is interesting... More

Tasty food in a friendly and laid-back setting. We had a share platter for 2 which let us try a few dishes. Kids were kept happy with childrens' meals (fish and chips). I was impressed with the fish which was not battered, but rather pan-fried and delicious.

We had a vegetarian platter. Yum! Plenty of food, delicious, good service although we were sitting away from the main groups and were forgotten a bit. A great social enterprise for refugees. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The atmosphere out the front is my favourite. You can order a platter to share between everyone, and on this occasion we had enough people to order the whole vegetarian menu. Unanimously, the favourite was the mushrooms. The staff were friendly and enthusiastic but seemed a little confused about what to do with a large group. This restaurant performs best... More

Description
Welcome to MU'OOZ a new and unique cultural dining experience here in Brisbane's West End. Originally located in Moorooka, Brisbane's "Little Africa" you will be able to enjoy the tastes & ambience of a traditional Eritrean Restaurant right here in Brisbane.
Mu'ooz was established in 2008 following Government funding approval for this unique community-based project and with the support of many dedicated believers in our Vision where the profits from our business are directed back to our community via the Eritrean Women and Family Support Network.
Called Muooz, which means tasty and healthy in Tigrinya, our dining experience has been shared with thousands so far and whose support h as allowed us to win The Regional Restaurant award in 2013. Enjoy the dining experience of sharing platters of amazing food with friends in the traditional manner, whilst savouring the aroma of coffee beans roasting over an open flame ready to make the distinctive coffee our restaurant is renowned for!!
You will be proudly hosted by our professionally trained team, many who have a history of being refugee women from war-torn Eritrea and surrounding Horn of Africa countries.
We hope you enjoy our food which we cook from the heart and look forward to you visiting us soon.
