Want a healthy dish? Mona's makes it. Want an indulgent dish? Mona's makes those too. My girlfriend, a New Orleans native, said this is the BEST place in the city for Mediterranean food. I would go back here repeatedly to try more dishes on the menu. VERY reasonably priced. Great service. Excellent and very tasty food.

My family occasionally needs some Greek food. This is the best we've found in New Orleans. We call ahead and pick up the food for eating at home. Chicken and lamb were good. Humas was somewhat unique flavor-it had significant lemon content. Our group of eight was able to find an entree they all enjoyed.

I love this place! You can eat like a pig, or have something fresh and healthy depending on your mood! I think this location has the best service on average.

The food was amazing and super fresh. Everything is homemade. Good ambiance. The only drawback is the servers were bickering the entire time I was there which made it uncomfortable. They do have really cute outside seating and multiple locations throughout the city.

This is a Cajun cafe named Mona's. Pictures and web site incorrect, but address and phone correct. Great CAJUN eats. Quick friendly service. We were in NOLA for National Youth Gathering. 25,000 mostly Youth were in town. 15 on our group this visit .

Their sautéed vegetable platter was so so so good! Best I've had at a Greek restaurant! Also, they are pet-friendly, which is wonderful!

Going to Mona’s in Mid City can get to be habit forming. The Middle Eastern Restaurant and International Market has just what you need to hit the right spot. Many selections and fresh baked goods are in the Market. You can expect quick service and a pleasant atmosphere within the Restaurant. There is indoor and outdoor seating with lots of... More

I love Mona's but the Banks St. location is the best of them all. The service is friendly and the food is always prepared to perfection.

If you need a quick snap and you don't want to spend too much that it's your place but don't expect a top notch restaurant. The quality is good and the service fast and the personnel is kind.

This is very casual. Very inexpensive place to eat. Great gyros sandwiches. Also the best Lebanese tea anywhere. You can sit outside or in. They also have a small grocery next to the restaurant.
