I have been fortunate to dine in superb Indian restaurants in Mumbai, Delhi and London, so I’m quite fussy! But the Sunday buffet in Monk was absolutely superb. The fact that it’s Nepalese rather than the usual Indian (in reality, Bangladeshi) restaurants in the UK meant that there were subtle differences in tandem with the familiar. Two things to be aware of: although the online booking system provided by Quandoo.co.uk happily accepted my booking for 12:15, the restaurant doesn’t open until 13:00 on a Sunday. Fortunately they let my guest and me in and gave us poppadoms, but we did have to wait 45 minutes for food to be served. It was worth waiting for though, and arrived promptly at 13:00. The other consideration is that no desert was available, not even ice cream or - better still - kulfi. Never mind, I still highly recommend Monk for a sumptuous meal that is a little different from standard fare, yet still familiar. Full marks!
We really enjoyed the food, and the Nepalese dishes (of which there was excellent selection) were very good. The appearance/décor was good, contemporary - as you may expect from a newly opened restaurant. We had only a table for 2 which was small but sufficient. It was to one side where the ceiling lighting was from ceiling downlights - it would have been nicer if the lights could have been dimmed a little. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the restaurant was busy, one of the waiters seemed to have less English and for example we were told that there were no desserts, which I don't believe but we had sufficient anyway. Overall, we liked the restaurant, the food was very good, the Nepalese cuisine a change from standard Indian/Asian, and we certainly intend to go again and would recommend. Cost for two was about £90 for starters, ample main dishes (one main, two sides, very nice rice dish & bread), and drinks incl coffees.
Our first visit to Monk Restaurant and it did not disappoint. Nice interior design, crisp white linen table cloths, tables well spaced and a nice varied menu of Nepalese and Indian dishes. When we arrived there was a party of 16 already dining and only one waitress. So I was anticipating slow service. However, this was not the case. The lady who served us was friendly and efficient. The dishes we selected were tasty and well presented. We will definitely return.
This was my son and our first visit booking was easy on line . We arrived and was seated quickly . We chose our drinks and starters as we could not decide on our main . We had to ask for the drink menu back as they took it way an emu son wanted to choose another drink , the ran out of chicken wings but gave us an alternative we enjoyed . Then had to ask and wait to order our main , they ran out of their specialty roti so chose another one . Food was good . Will be back o try more as so much on the menu .
We arrived yesterday evening (1st Dec) for my partners surprise birthday meal. All his friends arrived prior to us and were seated quickly. The restaurant even allowed us to put our own funny birthday banner up on the interior of the restaurant: which was a laugh. The drinks were never a long wait and served very quickly all night. We had to wait a little bit for the food but considering there was 9 of us it was expected. And the food was AMAZING. Highly recommend the Kangeroo kebabs
Booked a table for 6 at 7:30 we sat down and we ordered our drinks.. took a while for the popadoms to come and by the time the server come over to order our mains we had been there nearly 45mins.. once the food was ordered we waited a further 45-1hour for our food which didnt arrive till 9:30pm by this time we had been at the restraunt 2hrs.. food was lovely but to much spice added to everything even the korma which shouldnt have spice was kicking with spice and had to drink water. The servers were lovely and when they come over to the table for drinks/order were very friendly and attentive.
