Sometimes it's word of mouth...sometimes it's the aroma when the door of a really good restaurant opens. This time it's both.
Excellent food...great service...super location.
Please visit all of their unique restaurants...you will not be disappointed with any of your choices.

Thank Will S

My husband and I spent a lovely week in Savannah and throughly enjoyed the Flying Monk three times! The food is absolutely delicious. The service was prompt and professional. Over the course of our 3 meals at the Flying Monk, we had the Spicy Tuna Tacos, the Buddha Noodles, the Curry Noodles and the Red Spicy Noodles. Everything we had was fantastic with very fresh, flavorful ingredients. It was quite crowded but the wait wasn't too bad. If you don't like waiting I would suggest coming in the mid afternoon. There are a couple of tables outside but we sat indoors and enjoyed the hubbub of happy people eating delicious, well prepared food. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We've been to Flying Monk at least weekly since it's opened. Don't skip the appetizers or the sides. We usually make a meal of just these. We love the edamame dumplings, eggrolls, green papaya salad, Chinese broccoli, and bok choy. Ele Tran has done it again!

You would expect flavorful food and great service from the same group that gave you ELE, Tangerine and Fire but this place is something else. Great food nice looking staff and interesting ambiance. We dined there last Wednesday and the place was full an 730. Full of tourists and the locals so you know its good. My Korean noodles were fire hot . This is outré second time and will go back often. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Lovely and lively noodle restaurant. Our waitress brought our drink orders then took much too long to take our food order. We ordered an appetizer and 3 entrees.The waitress forgot the appetizer so it was served with the meal. The pork belly was well seasoned and generous enough for two. The Spicy Lemongrass had 6 large fresh shrimp which were properly cooked. The chicken in the Ankgor Wat was overcooked, dry, and tasteless. The dish contained no cucumber or lettuce as described on the menu. It did contain carrots and cilantro. Our 3rd entree was Master Shifu noodles. This is braised slow roasted short ribs over wide noodles. The meat was plentiful and it was in a delicious sauce, but it was not tender. It seemed more like well seasoned chuck roast. The waitress brought our check before we had had more than a few bites of lunch. No one asked if we wanted dessert or additional beverages. I am surprised at the high praise this restaurant has received. Given uneven food and poor service, I am not in a hurry to return.
