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 be going back again.

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 - especially the salt & pepper squid which sells out frequently. Not overly breaded or greasy which is why it is so popular.
Recommend this restaurant for Friday night take out.

The food just misses something; it is about the lowest level of western Chinese food that I have eaten. lack of flavor, lack of visual appeal, just nothing to make me go back

My husband loves the food here but I'm not quite sold. It's not too bad but seems to lack some authentic flavours I'm used to in other Chinese restaurants. The deep fry prawns have an odd taste and the sweet and sour sauce is too full of artificial colouring and also tastes off. A couple easy changes and this place could be great!

Fair price .
