Excellent Chinese meals!

Been here a couple of times before and again last Saturday. This restaurant is just outside the city centre so not in China town itself. We had dinner with friends and fully enjoyed the complete meal. The soup was excellent, the spring roll very good and the main course was absolutely great! Highly... read more

Been here a couple of times before and again last Saturday. This restaurant is just outside the city centre so not in China town itself. We had dinner with friends and fully enjoyed the complete meal. The soup was excellent, the spring roll very good and the main course was absolutely great! Highly recommended for all.

Early dinner, no other diners in but already warm and good odours coming from the kitchen. Happy helpful staff who got straight into it. Hot plate of beef and vege with ginger. Chicken with a special side of fried rice. All fresh, clean flavours and very healthy portions. House wines fine. Will return

We were taken to this restaurant and we were thoroughly satisfied by the whole experience. The food was excellent and the portions were more than ample. The restaurant was well-patronised, the service was friendly and professional and the ambience and decor were most pleasant. The menu had a wide selection and the beverage options are also excellent with a small... More

Monkey King is a nice place to go. Not the most fancy restaurant, but it always fulfills exmectations. Best dish on the menu? Go for the chicken with Coriander and a varity of mild spices ... You will be blown away! The South African red wine is ver good the others are "so so". Go there with the right expectations... More

I've been here so many times and it's always very good food. The owner and the waiters are very friendly with a big smile. Nice dishes, not expansive and fresh food, a good selection of wines as well. Give it a try, you'll not be disappointed! Jan

Isn't it funny how all Chinese restaurants seem to have the same interior decorator? So that sums it up, I guess. The food is nice and tasty, some dishes with a twist, but nothing extraordinary. The price is right for this food and service, not too expensive for casual dining.

Read the raving reviews in TA and decided to try out this place while visiting Antwerp. It is family style cooking, not the standard one would normally expect in a good Chinese restaurant with more "professional" standard of cooking. The food is so-so, nothing to rave about, and it agrees with the Belgian palate with rather bland seasoning. For a... More

Located just off the Sint Jansplein, this hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant serves fairly tasty Chinese food. I am however not fully convinced that it's worth the long trek to get there since the location is not very central and the high ranking/5* rating here on TA simply surprises me. I have to admit that the fried rice (do not understand why... More
