First visit and liked the quality and quantity of the food. However , one meal we ordered, although delicious, was listed as noodle dish but it was a noodle soup!! That needs to be fixed on the menu!! I also hope they improve the 'dine in' ambience. I'd like to be able to eat in but its too dark, too plain and a bit dirty. We wil ... read more

The food was delicious! Was looking for a new restaurant to try and I’m happy that I picked this place. Ong is friendly and a good chef! Ordered na na noodles, duck, papaya salad, and chicken wings.

Flying Mon is an amazing restaurant! Been here a couple times, and I’ve never been disappointed. Both the food and the service are excellent.

How is this place not always packed?!? The food is true to it's roots and there's so much beautiful umami and blissfully beautiful flavor combinations packed into every bite! I got the duck noodle soup and wow, did that bring back all the beautiful memories of my childhood!

Wonderful little place! Husband had Sesame Chicken. It was crispy without being overbreaded, and the sauce was delicious. I had Shrimp Pad Thai which was fantastic. We will be back!

The Tao Wonton Soup is delicious! I’ve had it twice and both times it did not disappoint. The wontons and bbq pork were definitely the highlights!

Super delicious food!! If you’re looking for orientation Asian food from Thailand, China, and Malaysia, you should give this place a TRY! I would recommend the no. 19, spice bbq pork plate, this is a popular Malaysian dish and the chef got this dish right. If you want to try some Thai food, I would recommend no.10, Angkor Wat, it’s a ... read more

Master noodle was pretty good, like a traditional Chinese braised beef noodle with a lot of ketchup. Sukiyaki noodle is nothing with sukiyaki. It’s not sweet, just a large bowl of seafood, with not that fresh roasted pork and really bad shiitake, and huge bok Choy cut in half which is hard to chew ... read more

Good food. My wife got the pad Thai and I got the pho combo. The food was fantastic. The service left a bit to be desires. Would go back if in the area.

Went in with my son, we both loved the food and drinks, and the service was great. Owner is very fun to talk with. Would highly recommend this restaurant, we will definitely be coming back!

Their service is great and the staff offered good recommendations. As a South East Asian native, the food is authentic and executed perfectly! Looking forward to try more dishes from them.

Wow, I frequent this neighbourhood for work and Flying Mon is a gem. The ambiance is minimalist/hole in the wall, but the food is above and beyond, I can't wait to explore the menu after the amazing "tau dumpling soup" I had. Definitely worth a visit!! I only review places I love or hate, so this is a LOVE!
Ian Dielschneider via - Apr 23, 2021
Tried the na na noodles. The shrimp were super fat and juicy and it had a ton of fresh veggies. Really satisfying but felt ~healthy~. My boyfriend got one of their soups which he enjoyed. Portions were generous.

Ordered the tao dumpling soup and na na noodles w/ shrimp - usually don’t like wonton noodle soups but I was pleasantly surprised by this one (great assortment of veggies that you don’t usually see from restaurants 🤩) ; the na na noodles were also great (a little heavy on the garlic? taste for me, but my friend loved it) Overall it w ... read more

I wanted to try belly braised pork but it was sold out. I was told it’s the most popular item in the menu. But we had a chance to try Nana Noddle (Shrimp) and it’s really good. We tried several items and crispy succulent pig plate is also highly recommended.

This was my second time here. I ordered #12 with chicken. So good! My daughter had NaNa noodles and she couldn't stop eating it. Check out the menu. They always clean the table and chairs when someone leaves and there's social distancing of tables.

Fresh. Good food. We will be going back!
