We eat at Moniko's at least 2 times a month. Excellent food, good service and good atmosphere. Many different Styles and variations of food. A great place to try. Now have a 15 minute lunch or you get 10% off price of meal.

I chanced upon Moniko's at a colleague's farewell affair. Nice cosy place, subdued lighting that is enough to see the person sitting across from you and have a decent conversation. Wasn't planning to eat but ended up ordering the chicken burger. Comes with a side of fries. It was timely, tasted lovely and for a man of my size and... More

Having seen photos of the sumptuous looking chicken burger on the Monikos instagram page, I was more than convinced to try it out. I headed there, appetite in full swing. Service was prompt. And I sat there for about 10 mins before my meal arrived. By the looks of it, I could tell that it didn't quite match the appearance... More

I recently enjoyed a hearty breakfast at Moniko's in Valley Arcade. I ordered eggs benedict with salmon, coffee and fresh juice. The food was a generous portion and the coffee was well made; the juice tasted fresh. The service was prompt and attentive. I also enjoyed Moniko's setting, with comfortable outdoor seating in a quiet courtyard in Valley Arcade.

Had a birthday dinner here. It's an OK place. The the menu has quite a variety, we found they didn't have a lot of the items available that evening. Their fresh juices are disappointing, though I suspect most don't go their for fresh juices :) Their burgers, though, are really good! Very flavorful and well prepared, served with chunky fries....

Calamari, burgers and in fact all lunches off menu (despite originally being told these were fine and available - ordered 2 times before confirming only breakfasts being done: this took 20 mins to establish with waiting staff....). Then breakfast arrived around an hour later (really just poaching or frying eggs - no idea why it took so long l) -... More

Had the pork chops and in a bed of very tasty vegetables. The staff is attentive and the menu has enough variety for whatever you fancy, however there was no mango or orange juice/smoothies available on the day.

They have lots of specials during the week for drinks. Enjoy a buy one get one free cocktail. They food is okay. I had the Masai fish which was nice. I've also had pasta takeaway which was a bit oily. All in all a good place which was close to where I stayed.
