We hadn’t been here in years and my hairdresser mentioned that he really enjoys Mon Jin Lau, so we tried it for dinner. An enthusiastic diner next to us had evidently dined here often and raved about the food and menu variety. The menu is extensive. In fairness, my husband and I have been lucky enough to enjoy some superb... More

Had a wonderful meal. The portions were good sized and we took some food back to the hotel. My only complaint would be the volume of the music they are using for background. Loud enough difficult to hear other people talking at the same table.

After enjoying the food for many years at Mon Jin Lau, the quality has fallen off a bit. Also, the portions are smaller. It appears that they are using more sugar in some of their dishes as well. I have to say, the sizzling rice soup is still spectacular.

We went to Mon Jim Lau for New Year's Eve. (You definitely should make a reservation in advance). The restaurant already had ambiance, but add in the Christmas and New Years decorations and it was doubly inviting. We had wild baked Chilean sea bass, spicy tuna sushi, vegetarian lettuce wraps, and the best Pad Thai I have tasted in a... More

Always wonderful! Whole fish with a huge appetizer was more than enough for two. Fish was deboned at table side which added to the overall experience.

Joined three others for a great way to bring in the New Year! This was a happening spot on New Year's Eve. Reservations a must. The bubbly was wonderful and the Asian-inspired menu has something for everyone even my gluten-free wife. We shared generous appetizer plates of dumplings and steamed edamame. Then, salmon, beef and chicken entrees. Then a toast... More

Mon Jin Lau can be pricey for dinner but lunch is a real value, with a variety of choices coming with soup and egg roll at $11 to $15. We had 2 kinds of shrimp and both were good, with seriously large and very fresh shrimp. For all your old Oak Parkers--egg rolls are Hoa Kow style!!! Old-fashioned egg drop... More

They have good service, food is served hot and it has really good taste. They even serve some vegetarian Sushi which my wife likes... More

Sorry to report MJL is living on its past. The place was still packed looking for quality Asian food. But the soup was boring at best. And how can you make bad egg rolls. The duck was fatty the beef was good and the sesame chicken was ok Hope they can pull this back to the good old days
