Uncle Momo is a fun Middle Eastern restaurant. Good food, varied menu. The tasty Eggs Nantua dish is a take on the Eggs Benedict classic by having smoked salmon. Good fries. Nicely dressed salad. A companion had avocado toast with easy over eggs and salad....More

The food is outstanding...service can be improved but for authentic cooking and pita bread. It's a charming atmosphere.

This is where I like to take people from out of town. There is something for everyone. Vegetarian lentil soup, hummus, salads, pitzas of all kinds, lots of meat choices, and wonderful teas, drinks, and desserts. Highly recommended.

Great new restaurant in downtown Jersey City across from City Hall. Cozy and comfortable, and still not too busy. Went there last Friday night and even though the place was pretty full, service was prompt. We had Lentil Soup, Spinach & Chickpeas, Baked Salmon, and...More
