messageNew Japanese restaurant: Monkatsu on North Cross Rd
Posted by derwentgrove February 12, 02:11PM

A thumbs up from me for this new Japanese restaurant that has now opened on the site of what was previously Bonne Bouffe. I had dinner there on Sunday night: vegetable gyoza and chicken gyoza as starters, then a very tasty Katsu curry to follow. Cost: £55 + service for the two of us (including a bottle of white wine). The service was friendly and efficient too. Hopefully they will soon have their chip and pin machine up and running and a bit more certainty about their opening hours. But on first impressions this felt like a good addition.

My partner and I ate a lovely lunch st Monkatsu today. We were given a free miso soup (tasty) followed by sushi and sashimi for me and a mixed Katsu curry for him. Plus a couple of glasses of wine.

Service was charming. £40 all in.

We shall be going back!

Is there a menu online for this restaurant at all?

It looks good and I hope it succeeds. Unlike in Japan, a service charge is included in the bill, according to the menu. (In Japan people rarely tip because it is deemed to be embarrassing to both parties.)

I’m looking forward to trying this one- looks very family friendly which is quite rare generally speaking...

Excited about this new addition - has anybody found a website or online menu for it? Or even a phone number?!

Went there for lunch on Sunday.
Really impressed, had gyoza to start then my other half had a Katsu curry which he thoroughly enjoyed.
I had sashimi platter which was melt in the mouth fresh and of excellent quality
We will definitely return
it was fairly priced too with friendly efficent service.

I had a great dinner there with my other half - Pork Katsu and a sushi set plus green tea game to approx. £35

the quality of both the cooked and uncooked foods was very good. We recommend!

Got down there last night. Great addition to the area, tried a few things they were all really good - with prices more than reasonable for the quality on offer.

Not mad fond of the space itself though (presumably unchanged from prior incarnation?). If the owners a reading: warm dimmed lighting, a few coloured lanterns, tea lights, - bit of ambience without any need for great expense. Other than that, great stuff. If nothing else, we’ll be deliveroo regulars.

We had a lovely early dinner yesterday, with the kids.
The food was delicious. Service and atmosphere was just right.
Looking forward to going back again. Highly recommend a visit.

Ditto all of the above,
Went for the first time today with our little ones and the food was superb and the children love it - the children’s menu is great value. Great sushi, tempura, gyoza, teriyaki and katsu and the prices are very good.

We will most definitely return - a very nice new addition to the area.

We had a great meal here last night.

Delicious and very reasonably priced.

We will definitely be back to try out the rest of the menu!

ETA: They have a Facebook page with the menu on, but the only website I could find currently only has photos and testimonials.

I guess Deliveroo also has the menu, but couldn't access it at the moment as they are closed.

Just had a look on their website but no menu as you say. This tends to put me off places tbh - why would a restaurant not have a menu out there - very odd.

Thanks Sue. Saw that in your original post but it's just strange that a restaurant doesn't have a menu on their website.

Weirdly (I think) this seems to be a bit of a thing at the moment.

I don't understand why, but there you go!

It would seem they do not currently have their own Website, ??

At least I have not been able to find one through a Google search.

ETA there is a link [monkatsu.business.site]

There is a Menu on Deliveroo

But not on their website!

messageRe: New Japanese restaurant: Monkatsu on North Cross Rd
Posted by NewWave April 03, 10:53PM

Perhaps this is because they rely on fresh ingredients and the menu may be subject to variation.
small buisneses don't always have the time or staff to regularly update a website.
I only need to see online menu's when the restaurant's name gives no indication as to the type of cuisine served
Also if you're local pop down the road and have a look at the menu in their window.

You are in the minority I would suggest. If they have menus on other sites why not put it on their actual website! Perhaps they will see the comments here and rectify.

The Facebook link doesn't work and I can't see a menu on their page either, am I missing something?

The deliveroo menu doesn't mark ingredients so I can't tell what's vegan (even though they are tagged as vegan so must have at least some dishes that are) so I've never ordered from there. Will try it in person at some point but they've lost my business on several occasions now when I wanted to order.

The Facebook link goes directly to their menu. It's working for me!

I'm sure a quick phone call would tell you?
