Great homestyle cuisine with flair. Lovely ambience inside Valley Arcade and friendly service. Always a good place to stop for a bite, whether for lunch or dinner (or in fact, brunch).

Aside from an unacceptable 40-minute wait for what was a relatively simple order on my latest visit (coupled with unconvincing excuses about 'problems' in the kitchen that didn't seem to affect other customers who had arrived after us getting their meals before us), Moniko's is...More
