Have eaten here many times already, close to where we live, so very convenient. Nice restaurant, no typical 'European Chinese' decoration, but stylish with a story. Also the menu has been approached in a different way. Very nice and tasty food and an excellent service. Good wines and an extremely nice and charming owner.

Not the best chines menu I ever tried or tasted, but the staff is quite friendly. 10 euros for a dim sum selection (not particularly notable) is a bit too much, so as the main courses ranging from 15 euros onward. At that price you would expect something slightly better.

Delicious food with very good service. Ordered different dishes and ate family style. Went on a weeknight so it was nice and quiet. Easy walk from Antwerpen-Centraal.

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
