Reviewed yesterday NEW

The restaurant is located a little bit above the road along the coast and hosts a spice garden, cooking school, and restaurant & bar. The name originates from the monkeys that are living in the trees and often visit - unfortunately not when I was there, but thats nature. The food is good and the portions are huge - careful...

Beautiful food, friendly staff, family friendly, we were made to feel very welcome, and whilst we enjoyed the local offerings the kids ate fish and chips. Great place with lovely decor and atmosphere.

Firstly, you need to climb a steep slope and take stairs to reach the restaurant. Not very child or elderly friendly. We visited this place for lunch on Monday. It was deserted, which was good as the food still took 30 mins to arrive. I wonder what happens when it's crowded. The location is good with many trees around and... More

Visited yesterday, magnificent food. Awesome view of the sunset. Arrived as monkeys passed by, staff were so helpful and brilliant with our children. We had Thai tapas starter, Sea Bream and Chicken massaman, all fantastic. Highly recommended.

The Monkey Tree sits perched above the road with views to the ocean. Seated out on the terrace I can't say when I've enjoyed Thai food as much as when we went to Tree Monkey for lunch. You must try the Crispy Kangkong, Papaya salad and the Miang Kham salad. Finish lunch with the Mango and Sticky Rice pudding. Delicious!... More

We had a large group dinner and service was prompt and food was delicious . We ordered three sets and the portions were generous. Plenty of food for all. We could not finish the mains. You will need transport to get there . I love the venue ..eating in a forest . Did not see any monkeys at all. Totally... More

This is as nice a spot as you could wish for in a wonderful setting overlooking the bay. Perched hgh above the road in the trees it is a perfect place to relax after a tour of the gardens. Go for the Asian Tapas RM118 for 8 courses - a bargain!
