Meet the Owner

I am Manouchehr Kia, immigrated to New Zealand in 2004. I am Persian (Iranian), people call me Manou - Prince of Persia.

I graduated with Diploma in International Travel and Tourism from the Wellington Institute of Technology. I've started my first business in Wellington and bought a café 'The Coffee Club'. In about two years I sold it and moved to New Plymouth where I opened Manou’s café & restaurant. I am 6 years in food industry and I am 4 years in Manou’s café & restaurant.

We always strive to provide best service and best food. Manou’s Café reward the best 10 top café & restaurant, people's choice restaurant in 2013:

"A waterfront dining opportunity, Manou’s Cafe & Restaurant prides itself on being a prime spot for watching ships and boats of all sizes as well as marine and animal life off the coast of Taranaki. There’s no surprises, then, that Manou’s made our list for its fantastic fresh seafood, with scallops, prawns and grilled fish being particular favourites with our members.

As Manou says: “When you stroll along our wonderful New Plymouth seafront walkway, pop into Manou’s for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or just relax and enjoy a coffee. We can cater for all types of functions and arrange harbour cruises, fishing charters and helicopter flights” " - see here: Taranaki Top 10 Restaurants
