Mie goreng was better than Indonesian... will definitely eat here again next time I from Indonesia..
Amazing food, couldn’t recommend enough, everything we ate was fantastic
Food was great and a lot of choice to choose.
The food is fantastic! Even the vegetarian options are super tasty.
When arrived with a voucher purchased through Deals. At first it seemed we were not going to be allowed to use it, although I had informed the restuarant through email. Eventually it was decided they would allow us to use it. The restuarant was empty at the time so not sure why they would cause embarrassment over it. It was perfectly legitimate. As I had a guest that was an uncomfortable start. The food - It was called a banquet but it was a long way from being a banquet. Lucky we were both small eaters. The food was tasty so that sort of saved the day. We waited so long for the sweets to come out that we left in the end as we were booked for a show. ( waited about 20mins after the main meal was cleared. Nothing was ever said about the delay. I got the impression the waiter was overworked and couldn't service all the customers as it did get quite busy after a while and he was the only one working. Probably not returning.
We usually go to this restaurant prior to a show at the Astor theatre. Service is always good and prompt. What we do is we order dishes from the Entree menu and share them. This gives a variety of tastes and they are generous enough to share out and taste a bit of everything. Pair these with some Nasi Goreng, and it is great. They do not have tea or coffee, so we usually head 50 metres down the road for waffles and coffee afterwards. Really tasty food at reasonable prices.
I love going to Monggo and have been a number of times. It is my go to place for inviting others for a delicious, all time favourite for many of friends and family. My favourite is the gado-gado with tofu and tempe, with sambal balado for a bit of spiciness. My partner loves the ayam bakar madu (chicken wings) and the satay ayam (satay chicken sticks). Fried rice, mee goreng, bihun goreng, lumpia all also a treat. A delicious place!
Delicious! Plenty on the menu, I had the Gado Gado which was very yummy. Friends ordered the Nasi Goreng which they should have got with the optional egg (+$2.50). Desserts were really good as well, lovely and light and fresh and not too sweet. Love that they had raw, vegan cheesecake as a dessert option, they were delicious and a generous serve. The warm banana layer cake with coconut ice cream was really good too!
I have been to Monggo a few times and have always enjoyed my meal, but last night our dishes came out one at a time, a dish was forgotten, we returned a few dishes as they were lukewarm.. We had to ask a couple times for our sharing plates while our food sat in the middle of the table for 10 minutes. The dishes didn't come with serving spoons which we then had to take from the empty table next to us. I felt very sorry for the one waitress who was trying to serve the whole restaurant. I'm sorry for this negative review, but we were all very disappointed.
The Mercon was different to what's being described on the menu, very disappointed, it tastes like sweet and sour chicken balls. And the Kari Ayam sauce was too sweet, I don't like sweet curries, it taste like a dessert to me. The roti paratha was a flop too. I don't think it's good value for money. The glass window and main entrance glass door need a good wipe, they are full of greasy finger prints and blocking our view and we couldn't look through the prints.
