Went out to Mill Bay and went to Monkey King Express. They are only open for a few hours BUT the food is worth the wait. The portions are large so an unexpected guest or two will surely be enough to feed them. I will...More

Firstly, the woman who answers phone, takes orders & serves us is great! She is friendly & efficient. Secondly, the food tastes freshly cooked, hasn't been sitting under heat lamp and isn't too greasy. Spicing is as described. The fresh chilie dishes are fabulous -...More

This is the closest Chinese food restaurant to my home, for take out food, so that is why I used it. Menu has a reasonable variety but items purchased were only average quality and over priced. I may look further afield next time.
