“Very good Sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2011

We often eat at Monks, sometimes for lunch, many times for dinner. Always agreeable. Waiters will care to your needs, reduce A/C, give you a table fare from the smoke. Unfortunately smokers are still allowed!

“Not good”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2010

There is an acute lack of Thai restaurant in Beirut. Imagine how happy I was when Monks opened.
The menu is quite diverse - too diverse maybe.

Prices are very low, which will satisfy many. But the food is tasteless. The curry simply do not taste Thai curry. I cook Thai better than that.

If you want a cheap Thai fare, then this is your place. But don't expect Thai taste.
