Mnky’ing around Dover Street

Friday, September 28, 2018

Opening in the former Dover Street Wine Bar – if you know, you know. Mnky Hse first opened as a bar, come restaurant. The cocktails knocking you off your feet.

Fast forward two years, and Mnky Hse encourages use of that famous staircase to descend downstairs towards the restaurant Рwith its very own bar.

The open plan dining space – with a few ‘cave dining ‘options, was full of Thursday night atmosphere – dinners of two, casual group dinners, business group dinners and a few mother/daughter duo’s. We even bumped into someone we knew – its always nice to compare notes ūüėČ

The Latin-American inspired sharing menu was a little too lengthy for my liking and we eventually agreed on ordering the following:

Mnky Ceviche Рour favourite dish, Wagyu Tostadas Рas recommended and enjoyable, Chicken Chipotle Soft Tacos- an enjoyable kick. Wild Mushrooms Soft Tacos Рanother favourite. Soft Shell Crab Tempura Рa generous dish, Baby Chicken Рperfectly chargrilled and a memorable heritage Tomato Salad.  We had great fun playing with the monkey toys; can you spot them in the photos?


Cocktails to start, consisted of a Pisco and Jasmine Sour and a Mezcal with ginger and lime. Whilst opting for a glass of Malbec and a glass of Pinot Noir with the dishes.

We so enjoyed the food, which arrived so promptly- dishes arriving, as the kitchen prepares them. Our only comment which was also shared by the person we bumped into, was the speed of drinks service, our cocktails arrived a long time after our dishes began to arrive and similarly it took 10minutes for two glasses of wine to arrive at the table.

Recommended for lunch/dinner and casual/business; live music Wednesdays, a general all-round pleaser.

Thank-you to Mnky Hse for inviting us; we’ll be back soon.
