Mominoki House is a Japanese & international organic restaurant located in the Harajuku neighborhood of Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

Founded in 1976 by Eiichiro Yamada, Mominoki House specializes in natural food cuisine. The chef uses organic vegetables and meats, and electronically ionized water in the preparation of all dishes. The menu has International influences and is also distinctly Japanese - tofu dishes sit alongside gratins. Diners can choose from daily lunch, dinner and weekend brunch sets, or choose a la carte from their wide variety of brown rice, meat and seafood, vegetable, and tofu dishes.

English menus are available, and Mr. Yamada speaks very good English as well. Yamada-san offers organic cooking classes in both English and Japanese. According to the restaurant website, these classes are "for those of you who wish to become real professional in natural food cooking, or wish to own a natural food restaurant or a cafe."

In December 2008, Chef Yamada spent two weeks at the Fosse Farmhouse in Wiltshire, England. He and Fosse chef Caron Cooper collaborated on a special four-course Mominoki dinner menu, which was offered daily, and a special Christmas Day set lunch.
