Between Caine Road and Elgin on the mid-level escalator, Monogamous offers a tight flavourful menu combined with attentive service and a quite well appointed decor. Each of the dishes emphasized flavour rather than volume. Try the crisp fried chicken with chilies, the pork ribs with black vinegar sauce, the pork dumplings in chilli oil, and the chinese kale (tender crisp green stalks) with garlic and ginger. A quite environment that lends itself to conversation and lingering, the staff are friendly and engaging. Seating about 24, this restaurant deserves more kudos than many of its more well known competitors. Make a reservation, you will not be disappointed.

We were doing to Central to Mid-Levels escalator when we came across this little restaurant. We had the set menu lunch and the food was awesome and the value exceptional. The service was also top notch. 3 course set menu was HK$88 (about AU$11).
Alcohol can be pricey, so check that when you order.I have attached a photo of the menu.

Charming ex-pat meets Chinese food haven in the Mid Levels. If you are looking for something different with quality food and friendly service in a setting that ex-pats would love, but may have a bit too much kitsch for the locals, this is a perfect combination. Everything was well priced and the setting was an excellent way to spend a rainy evening.

I really like Monogamous! The food is VERY spicy Szechuan HOT HOT HOT! The staff are very friendly and the service was good. Beware of the chillies, my companion accidentally swallowed a little bit of one and it took a while to put out the fire!

We had a prawn dish which was lovely, the portions were generous. W also had a crispy fried beef dish, it was really good. but not as good as the prawn dish.

Monogamous owners - I'd suggest keeping a little plain yogurt on hand for those who swallow the chillies!
