This place can get very busy at lunchtime but the staff are very efficient and helpful. The food is quite different from anything else in Umhlanga and the drunken noodles with prawns are fantastic. The wine selection is not great but for a R35 corkage...More

I have Always enjoyed Mo's from the Florida road days but they really need to get their act together regarding beer stocks. The craft beers they have are rubbish and otherwise you are forced to drink SAB - please at least get some Heineken or...More

After 17 years set in a quiet little corner in suburban Morningside, Mo Noodles packed up our belongings and headed North to the trendy and bustling neighbourhood of Umhlanga Rocks. Now located in the modern and affluent Beacon Rock centre just off Lighthouse road, Mo's is set back from the hustle of Umhlanga village and as such, has its own private little space to stretch out and get comfortable in. Originally started by husband and wife team Mike and Janine 17 years ago, the restaurant was soon taken over by a very passionate young waitress , Jo-Ann , who, after owning Mo's for a decade, has successfully earned a place for Mo's among the most popular spots in Durban. With the tried and tested standard menu packed with the usual favourites such as the sublime seared calamari with chili and lime to the Thai-styled flavours of the stir-fries, curries and hot & sour soup to the exciting new specials and the addition of a solid craft beer & homemade Iced tea selection, there is something for everyone and all occasions. We've tried to keep it fresh and interesting while maintaining our distinctive style and atmosphere. We're open from 12pm until 3.30pm for lunch & 5.30 until 9pm for dinner, Monday - Saturday. There is something for everyone, vegetarians, vegans & kids are well catered for and nearly everything is available in half portions. Book early to avoid disappointment!
