Malisa Monyakula’s fast-casual restaurant opened to rave reviews in August 1997, in Lawrence, KS. She decided to take her show on the road and in 2000 opened a new location on Kansas City’s Southwest Boulevard to an adoring and noodle-hungry crowd. The Lawrence location is no longer open. After operating at 333 Southwest Boulevard for 10 years, Monyakula moved and opened in our present location at 2030 Central in January 2011. Monyakula re-branded the restaurant and revamped the menu. The KC outpost is going strong with a comfy urban feel; a menu that includes fiery curries, noodles, satays and rice dishes, including a crowd pleasing Pad Thai, Drunken Noodles and Rainbow Peanut Noodles; and Monyakula directing traffic.
