Reasons for trip

This restaurant is on a corner in the Cambridge Arcade behind the Atkinson Art Gallery on Lord Street. The Arcade can be accessed through the back of the Art Gallery or from a walk through beside the Art Gallery, from Chapel Street or from Eastbank Street.

As long as I can remember there has been a restaurant at this location and The Hungry Monk is the latest and very delicious establishment. I visited here a couple of months ago with an uncle and we enjoyed a wide range of tastes with the Miss Ping Pong Sharing Board for £15.00. It consisted of duck pancakes, curry parcels, prawn toasts, spring rolls, coconut prawns, and BBQ ribs. I also had a bowl of the leek and potato soup (£3.95) which was very tasty and my uncle polished off a bowl of “proper chips” (£2.75). With a couple of pints and a latte between us, we had a leisurely lunch and will definitely be back. The menu is very varied and there a number of other items I would like to try, British and international.

I understand they often have live music in the evening.
