Global Kitchen, with its delicious choice of dishes, offers a respite from a busy day with its down to earth and clean dining area. In Main Road Moonah (opposite BP service station) Global Kitchen offers dishes from Korea, Ethiopia, Indian curries, vegetarian and Europe. Host, Nami, is a cheerful host who delights in presenting her delicious array of food. I love this little place because the food is wholesome, you can get a large takaway for less than $10 that can feed a family or take some time out, read the paper or magazine and eat in the dining room with a chilled water. The dining area is very cosy and familiar with its collection of older style tables and chairs . My favourite dish is Korean beef with rice with the Korean vegetable pancakes, very filling and tasty. Eating in or takaway range from small $8 to large $10, and the large serves are large. I am a big eater and the large serve really does satisfy.

The following extract taken from an article by Elaine Reeves in the Mecury Myriad tastes of Moonah.
Global Kitchen offers many cuisines but not Irish. Owner Penelope Ann, born in South Australia, cooks vegetarian and multicultural; Arpana, born in India, cooks curries, dhal and samosas; Maria, born in Slovenia, cooks goulash, cabbage rolls and lasagna; and Abada, born in Addis Ababa, cooks zigny, a sauce for which a mountain of onions is reduced and then a blend of chilli, tomato and garlic is added. Each works a few days a week to cook enough for a couple of days when they are there. Ann says she wants to provide home cooking and ``likes the idea of sharing the work around a bit’’.
Global Kitchen has been open for a year, and Ann says she still has trouble with customers disappointed not to find the deep fryer bubbling away.
Ann expects to find the spices her cooks want at Food Lovers on Albert, where Don and Julie Schiro have them in bulk: 1kg of chilli powder $12, 1kg of whole coriander seeds $7.50.
