Customer Service was great and the food was out of this world! I would drive the 2 hours from home just to eat here. We had the banquet and it was definitely the way to go so as to experience a variety of their magnificent...food.More

Was there with our family of seven and had a fantastic night. My son selected the menu, which was wonderful. The highlight was our server, Gaby, was able to remember our entire menu without writing it down! I was simply amazed.

Always a great experience. Food is sensational, service excellent - love how the wait staff were right by my side when I needed another beer or dish. They just know their stuff. As an aside, and entirely my fault, I had a choking episode here...and for some reason ran out of the restaurant. My kids were obviously worried, and one of the staff stood outside to make sure they were safe and that I was too. I truly think without them someone on my family could have been hurt that night, so a huge thank you to Spice Monkey for everything.More

As advertised, the food is Asian Fusion, so the menu included some quirky takes on traditional Asian dishes. Very delicious. Service was also excellent.

Four friends enjoyed a delicious meal, great service and relaxed setting. It was fun being able to celebrate the eighteenth birthday of the youngest of three brothers from Parkes. A memorable night. Definitely recommend to others

Last week we spent most afternoons here or at the neighbouring bar/restaurants for happy hour. The views and atmosphere are amazing and service here was especially good and very congenial. Sunday and Monday nights there was an exceedingly pleasant and kind barman/server who even offered...and provided water bowls for attending pets. Though the margarita next door is better, the sevice good at both, Spice Monkey wins thanks to this young man who really wants to be there. Good on you.More

From the moment we arrived as walk ins to a full restaurant, we were treated warmly and flexibly. Offered a great table outside under cover, ordering was so easy as menu is on a QR code and the food was quick and delicious. Kingfish sashimi,...prawn tempura and prawn dumplings were the perfect lunch- as well as a cold beer! Put this on your list! I will return by booking and making it a proper relaxed longer lunch next time- thanks so much…More
