My friends ordered Monk’s takeaway for dinner and I was pleasantly surprised by the level of authenticity. The crispy ginger pork and the duck was very good while the black bean tofu was a bit too salty. Overall it was a good experience.

This is the 2nd time we’ve ordered Uber Eats from Monks - on our 2nd visit to Cape Town. Delicious, well prepared dishes that tantalize the taste buds. Will definitely need to visit the restaurant for an authentic experience. Highly recommend!

Had the smokey noodles and the mushroom chicken in oyster sauce. It smelled amazing but tasted average. It was very very oily. Customer service excellent though and prices are reasonable.

If you are looking for possibly the best tasting Chinese Food in Cape Town, pound for pound you will struggle to beat Monks. They are not a restaurant but an exclusively delivery service. Their service is nothing short of outstanding - they specialise in it....More
