It is far from authentic Tai food. Price tag overpriced for what is offered.

Service is slow, but taste is excellent. I recommend the duck, very tasty. Sushi is from Tsunami which is one of the best sushi restaurants in the town.

Atmosphere: fair enough Service: fair Food quality and taste: good Prices: expensive for what we ordered to average for other items Ventilation: not fair / average This restaurant deserves fairly its 3 stars and worth a visit to try. There are of course several varieties of dishes which makes it easy to find something at your taste. Recommended for a change: their imported beer. Followed by a local one (to compare).

Thai food was hit or miss, sushi was tasty, service was appallingly bad. Thai food took a couple of reminders and didn't arrive to the table until after those who ordered sushi had finished eating. wait staff downright unpleasant and no one cared until finally we complained to the manager. As an aside, I didn't like that they have tv screens in the dining room. Wouldn't return.

Not bad. Bought 50% coupons to try the place for the first time. I didn't go there I ordered, but the phone service was good and professional. The food tasted good, I tried both sushi and chinese. I give it 7.5/10 which is pretty good. My friend liked it too. The food was fresh, but not mouth melting for me so I didn't give it a 5 stars.

Not as pleasant as expeted from the moment we arrived till we left. First we arrived, valet is unprofessional, he tells you messio instead monsieur :) We ordered sushi and thai food. Sushi taste was very good, served in a few minutes but the thai food took ages to arrive with missing 3 plates. Main course was served before finishing serving the salad and the rest of the appetizers and salad. They gave us 12 maki pcs complementary to componsate on the delay. Food taste good but the duck was less then average, its dry and shewy. Service was awful if you combine the delay with the server itself. Price is ok. Cleanliness is average, nothing to comment on.

Monks has changed over the year. The food isn't as spicy and delicious anymore. You'll feel like there's something missy, the curry doesn't have the same rich and strong feeling its like eating soup. For the pricing, it was awfully good. For 2 adults, we payed 70$ which was an okay price considering we also ordered salad and some sushi
