Review – Five Fat Monks

I will be reviewing my food experience at Five Fat Monks.

First all let me start by saying, I ordered food from here and have not tried the food at the restaurant as of yet. So my review purely is about their delivered food. – Which may vary in some taste but will definitely vary in the ambiance, quality of presentation and freshness of the dish.

I had a Chinese food craving for which I decided to order from Five Fat Monks in Linking Road. To my surprise they also knew about MSG and do not use it in their foods – which is definitively a plus for a Chinese cuisine restaurant. I ordered a pretty balanced meal –

The chicken yakitori should not go wrong, however I would say they had left me desiring for better chicken. Sure they tasted okayish – I would rate them 6/10 however, as you can see, that’s how it was delivered to me – quantity is low (definitely low for a ninja’s diet), the sauce is very runny and all at the bottom and the chicken had become soggy in their delivery box. (200 Rupees)

The next dish I ordered was their King Kaphrao Rice – Which should be made of Minced Chicken, Basil, Red Chili, Rice and a fried Egg. As for the ingredients mentioned – sure they were all there, but they were limited – apart from the rice. The dish is presented in a manner which could work as a whole meal, but a protein lover will fall short of meat and 1 simple egg. I personally would add more chicken, perhaps a sauce instead of basil and chili and add 2 egg whites to the rice mix to give a better consistency – definitely not worth the 295 Rupees.

Overall score for delivered food – 5/10
