After 17 years set in a quiet little corner in suburban Morningside, Mo Noodles packed up its 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. Just recently Jo-Ann and husband, Shane, extended their vision and opened yet another Mo’s in the trendy and newly renovated Lifestyle centre in Ballito.

With the tried and tested standard menu packed with the usual favourites such as the sublime seared calamari with chilli 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. Other popular dishes include Sesame and Peanut Chicken served on Coconut Noodles, the specialty Seared Calamari with Chilli and Lime, and the taste sensation of their signature Lentil and Feta Salad served with a mint and lemon dressing. We’ve tried to keep it fresh and interesting while maintaining our distinctive style and atmosphere.

We’re open for lunch and dinner Monday - Saturday in Umhlanga and 7 days a week in Ballito opening ourselves up to be the perfect lunch time getaway, the ideal afternoon chill-out spot as well as one of the trendiest dinner pit stops before a night out. There is something for everyone, vegetarians, vegans and kids are well catered for and nearly everything is available in half portions. Book early to avoid disappointment.

Mo Noodles is famous for its trendy vibe, minimalist decor, friendly service and its distinctive style of Asian Fusion cuisine. The open plan design and relaxed atmosphere makes Mo’s the perfect place to kick back and chill with family and friends over lunch or dinner.
