Beautiful and creative fresh food and lovely attention service
Cosy Japanese restaurant for a romantic date.
Highly recommend for people on restricted diet as most of dishes are light but delish.
Thanks Monou. We will be back❤️🌸
I recently had my birthday hear and it was amazing. Wonderful staff good food and sake. I will be coming back again!! Thanks heaps!!
Everything's fresh and tasty, tofus dumplings are impressive, just hope they can be browned a bit more.
And maybe better to have pics menu since some customers may not understand some Japanese dish names, more attractive for people to order.
Staffs are so nice.
Definitely want to try the cocktail menu next time.
The food was delicious and the service excellent. We really liked the decor and ambience.
Unique refined, sophisticated flavours that seem to be effortlessly created. Just tasty delicious food at very reasonable prices. We are planning on visiting often.
It’s our second time to have dinner in MONOU, very enjoy it always, food is delicious, staff are so friendly and take care of customer as well, the environment is very comfortable, definitely go again.
Quiet relaxing restaurant serving quality japanese food. The staff were so lovely I can't wait to go back.
Lovely cosey place in Sth Melb. Gorgeous food and great service.
The only downfall that I would have to make is the amount of wine that was poured in a standard drink. (Very minimal) We had to have a laugh. Besides this, everything else was fantastic.
The food, decor and atmosphere is lovely, the selection of ingredients could be of a better quality, then the place would be ideal for a secret Japanese spot
Authentic Japanese food but with a twist. Lovely owner and staff. I can recommend the shochu infused with fruit made by the owner’s mother (also a restauranteur but in a Tokyo).
The food was delicious - higlight being the eggplant. The ambiance was lovely too, we had a great time & will be back!
I thoroughly enjoyed everything I ordered. The fish was fresh & delicious, the combination of flavours in the dishes were just right & the staff were attentive. I will definitely be returning.
Fresh, layers of flavour and beautiful presentation. High quality Japanese cuisine
The food presentation was very creative, nothing I have seen before!
I'm generally skeptical of Japanese fusion places as I prefer the traditional Japanese flavours and often find fusion places disappointing. But Monou takes the Japanese flavours to another level by keeping the traditional flavours with modern Western cuisine. The dishes were super innovative - I was particularly impressed with the tuna and parmesan cheese plate. The flavours burst in my mouth without conflicting each other and I really enjoyed the textures on the pallet.
The prices were very reasonable and will be going back in the near future
It was a lovely experience - we enjoyed the food and the place very much.
Lovely restaurant. Feels relaxed yet sophicated. Went for lunch and they had a special lunch menu. A la carte menu looked great too so can’t wait to go back to try it out. School prawns were crispy and very tasty!
