Grabbed a quick dinner after the movies in Mong Kok. Some of the best sushi we have tasted for some time - and a novel way using a brush to apply the dipping sauce to the sushi. We also ordered Assorted Tempura and Grilled Mackerel with Salt (very tasty)... and the clam & seaweed Miso Soup was delicious. The Japanese Style Beef Tenderloin also melted in my mouth! You order off a tick sheet and your food comes fairly quickly. You can re-order but only allowed to stay for 1 1/2 hours. Staff are very busy, but they do come to you quite quickly. Surprised to see we were the only two 'foreigners' here. Maybe a hidden gem? We'd go again.

This place serves great tasting fresh sushi, not much frills. Mark your picks and get rolling. Sushi roll with cheese was a surprise, California roll did not disappoint and pork belly skewers hit the spot. Roll with Alaska crab and fois gra was amazing. We paid $680 (HKD) for two, including service and beers.

My husband ordered the steak on sizzling plate and voted it the best steak dish he had in Hong Kong for the entire weeks stay ( he ate steak almost everyday haha and he still returned to monster sushi for the steak to get his fix)

We stumbled upon Monster Sushi when we were searching for our first meal in HK after checking into the Cordis Hotel next door.

Love the swift service, there is always someone refilling your tea cup. Love the selection of sushi and how quick they are to serve the food too. We also got a 100 dollar voucher for our next meal so it's clear They are not only very good at service, sushi, they know how to do business! We definitely will return.

Ps : you will notice they have mini brushes available on the table to brush soy sauce on your sushi. It's their thing, however my husband saw a man lick that brush during his meal ( a testament to how much he loves soy sauce and how delicious their food is but that put me off the brush haha )

Will return for their food and service for sure.

"Pay with peanuts and you will get monkeys..."

The food was very good, fresh,interesting combo with foie gras but... the service...
such a disgrace.

It was one of the worst service I've seen so far (even comparing with small town restaurants on remote islands of HK).

When we started we had the privilege of having a waitress cleaning tables with so much noise that we paused our conversation.

I also spotted a waiter eating from the leftover on a table, ("Adam / trainee")

The Indian waiter (Rudy) "forgot" the udon for the kids... (I was quiet specific, asking this to be served first).

I had the "eye" when I dared asking for Iced water.

I don't mind paying 2K for food but service is part of the bill so I feel very very upset

I will not come back, it was our last night in HK and I'm just upset.

The food and the service were not that great for the price. The restaurant itself is not that bad, but there are much much better restaurants in Mongkok for this price range and the service.
