Really like the food at The Monk (Though the new Japanese place next to it is giving tough competition for sure). Good selection of drinks and starters. Always a favourite hangout with friends.

Have been a long time patron of the monk. Best described as a filling , wholesome and very satisfying oriental meal. No frills menu with soup , rice bowl and various noodle bowl options. Sticky rice is our favourite and goes well with curried lamb like rendang. Starters are good as well and both vegetarian and non vegetarian options are... More

7 of us turned up to The Monk and everything about this place was excellent. The complimentary peanuts are fantastic! I could've just eaten these all evening with a beer! Starters and Mains were all delicious and would definitely re-visit and recommend it to friends. Great service also!

i had heard a lot about this place so drove from Delhi. the food was very ordinary, and actually looked unhealthy - vis a vis the cooking style. They had Basa as fish - IF you have Basa, then there is something seriously wrong as its probably the worst fish on the planet. Lamb was unedible, chicken with stick rice... More

The bowl meals are awesome, and trust me everything on the menu is to die for! Ambience is pretty cool! and if you are lucky you may find a celebrity or two dining on a table beside you! To start off with a lazy dinner - U may want to gulp a glass of GOOGLY wheat beer from a pub... More

I have been to the restaurant twice in past 2 months and it has not dissappointed me. The restaurant serves excellent chinese/sea food. My wife and I had Noodle bowl with prawns and the taste was amazing. Another advantage you get here is you can order drinks(freshly brewed beer/any other drink) from the micro brewery Howzatt located just beside the... More

I have eaten at The Monk half a dozen times and I must say that their signature dishes remain good especially the crispy fried vegetables in a kind of honey sauce and their mixed meat bowl of noodles in XO sauce. Two caveats: they apparently have a high turnover of waiters so you have to be patient with them. And... More
