What was meant to be a few days of necessary construction work has turned into a much longer hiatus for Monta Chaya in Henderson. Expected to re-open last month, the ramen house from the local Monta family of restaurants is hoping to begin serving on April 30, but has not updated its social media to confirm and has instead chosen to leave updated notices stuck to the front door.
Explaining the work is "required," the restaurant is currently not able to guarantee the April return date and guests are encouraged to call ahead at 702-331-5151 before making the trip to the Beltway Plaza on Eastern Avenue.
Monta Chaya debuted four years ago this month, inside a compact 1,343-square-foot space. Since then, the company has opened Ramen Kobo in Spring Valley and brought a version of its hit Los Angeles restaurant Marugame Monzo to Chinatown. Monjiro, Monzo's Torrance, California, spin-off has not fared as well and was recently sold, awaiting a May shutter.
Back in Henderson, when Monta Chaya returns it will have a new neighbor later in the year, when Pho King takes over a 1,525-square-foot spot next door to Poku Poke.
