Excellent food! A cosy atmosphere. We were able to get a table for 3 on short notice, and we asked the waiter if we could do the banquet menu (which saved a lot of money) although that was only meant to be for 4 people, A bit of confusion with a different waitress who wasnt so comfortable on the idea, but in the end it was all good. Great quality food and dessert and reasonably priced as well.

There's no doubt Teta Mona serves good food, but we had some disappointments on our recent visit as a party of 8 to celebrate an engagement. We booked three weeks out, but found when we arrived we were outside (admittedly undercover, but still cold and somewhat breezy) on a miserable Melbourne night. Teta Mona is tight and squeezy inside, but we expected to be asked when we booked, if it would be OK to be outside. So if you book, be clear about where you want to be seated.
Next, on a Friday and Saturday night, if you are a party of 4 or more, you are restricted on the number of items you can order off the menu. Thats understandable as the kitchen is small and needs to be able to handle the demand. However, we were rather disappointed in the limited choices we had in order to cover 8 people. But the food that we did manage to get access to, was indeed terrific.

Best Lebanese food I've come across. No ifs or buts. It is extremely well priced and the food is delicious. There's a fish dish that is brilliant and the rice with chicken and almonds is superb. If you are anywhere near this joint then you have to go. A very simple place that just focuses on the food. Service is no nonsense and good. BYO for all drinks with a bottle shop across the road, so even cheaper.
Can't praise the place highly enough.

We are quite spoiled for choice on this part of town and tend to go to old favourites but decided to try something new. The restaurant is small so quite squashed in on a seat that wasn't quite comfortable but the food... And that what you eat here for ....was great. Great flavours and textures. Each dish something new. We want to return to try more because we saw some very interesting dishes come out.
Loved the feta and haloumi squares!
