Been coming to the monk for a couple of years now. But off late (last 3 occasions over the last 4 months) the service time has been atrocious. It is an indicator of the popularity - the place always has a waiting and they don't take reservations - but if they cannot cope with its success, they're bound to go downhill soon , as the recent reviews in TripAdvisor already seem to indicate.
I'd strongly urge their management to take note and pull out all the stops to improve service speed. Or else just don't accept orders.
