Troy's version of high-end Asian fusion. Coming in at 7:30 on a Thursday, I found the parking lot full and the restaurant crowded, but was still able to sit immediately. Testing the sushi with a negihmachi roll, I found it to be adequate, but not stellar. The chilean sea bass in banana leaf, however, was stellar. Roasted perfectly, with a... More

TripAdvisor is the best site to find the ideal place for visit or for good food. This restaurant has a pretty good rating but not for me this time. My meal was so greasy. It is not the healthy way to served customer nowadays. But this is a best method for me to have a lesson. I learned it and... More

A little loud for a cozy, upscale Asian restaurant, but the food makes up for that slight annoyance. We've only been here twice, but loved our meals both times. Sizzling Peppered Tuna & the Sizzling Thai Chicken were both delicious!

Dinner for 4 in main room. Crispy duck for spouse and schezuan chicken for me, mild. Duck-succulent and beautifully presented; chicken moist and vegetables beautifully cut and tossed in sauce. Friends had appetizers which were substantial along with the perch special and a red meat and vegetables. I was surprised by a free birthday Sunday with chocolate sauce and the... More

Great Chinese food, really a cut above every other restaurant in town. Enjoy this place each time I go- this visit, service was particularly good as was the food. Lettuce wraps and moo shoo pork was terrific.

We started going there again since our son lives near the Mon Jim Lau. We used to go there on our dates back in the 70s. It brought back so many memories. The food and atmosphere here are still exceptional. Our waitress, Kristy, was just the nicest and best server that we've had from any of the restaurants we've been... More

Excellent food. Very unique dishes and all expertly prepared. Deserves its good reputation. Trouble is it is loud, noisy, crowded and the tables are on top of each other which I do not care for. That doesn't detract from the food though

I was in Michigan on business and for the first time ever flew into Flint (on Allegiant Airlines), and since my consulting gig was in Canton I wanted to stay in an "intermediate" location and chose Troy. Then, having lived in Michigan previously and being familiar with Mon Jin Lau decided to have dinner there, and it was g very... More
