Monark is often a favorite choice to meet friends for lunch or dinner. The decor is sophisticated. The food is fresh and very flavorful. The service is attentive without being overbearing. Some weekend evenings, there is live music - jazz or contemporary.

The Thai Salad with Shrimp is tasty, I did prefer the lemon dressing vs. the thai dressing provided. My friend enjoyed the Kung Pao Chicken and I the Jungle Curry Chicken. Be warned, if you are not ready for spicy hot, then you dare not...More
