The bowl meals are awesome, and trust me everything on the menu is to die for! Ambience is pretty cool! and if you are lucky you may find a celebrity or two dining on a table beside you! To start off with a lazy dinner - U may want to gulp a glass of GOOGLY wheat beer from a pub... More

I have been to the restaurant twice in past 2 months and it has not dissappointed me. The restaurant serves excellent chinese/sea food. My wife and I had Noodle bowl with prawns and the taste was amazing. Another advantage you get here is you can order drinks(freshly brewed beer/any other drink) from the micro brewery Howzatt located just beside the... More

I have eaten at The Monk half a dozen times and I must say that their signature dishes remain good especially the crispy fried vegetables in a kind of honey sauce and their mixed meat bowl of noodles in XO sauce. Two caveats: they apparently have a high turnover of waiters so you have to be patient with them. And... More

The Monk is an Asian restaurant located on the first floor of Galaxy Hotel in Gurgaon. Its is located right outside a micro brewery with large copper vessels in the window. Sometimes there is a long wait. I have always loved their food though over the years it has slightly gone down. Their bowls are excellent especially the one with... More

The Monk brought in and popularized noodle bowls in Gurgaon a decade back. Along with Axis and later, Howzzat, the restaurant was a statement of the vision that the owners had of setting Galaxy as a brand. The menu changed at regular intervals, the chefs exuded warmth and confidence as they tossed your dishes in open view, the dimsums were... More

Having been a patron of The Monk for over 4 years, I can confidently state that this is one of the best places to try Japanese/Chinese cuisine. Their sticky rice is a must have- my personal favourite being sticky rice with fish in XO sauce. One should also try their Pan fried prawns in Ouster sauce, Chicken with seven spices,... More

While a lot of people rave about The Monk I have not been impressed - there usually is a long queue to be seated, the staff is not the most polite and the food is over priced. They do have a nice ambience and the open kitchen adds to the charm
