Stopped in here for dinner and they gave us the table up on the elevated area as we had a young child, service was really great. The starter platter was so tastey, could have just eaten this all night, also had the massaman curry for mains which was also good. Would definitely recommend and will go back if we're in... More

We absolutely love it here and come to the restaurant (and the spice garden) whenever we are in Penang. The food is excellent and the views are gorgeous. Can really recommend the chilli mojitos!

Long drive out of Georgetown and a very steep walk up from the road but definitely worth the trip. The drinks are amazing (lots of fresh fruit juices) and the tapas allow everyone to find something they like.

Great food and is part of the spice gardens so they use fresh grown spices , it perches on the side of the hill overlooking the ocean . Prices are ok but variety and taste is great

The Tree Monkey restaurant is in a beautiful location with fabulous views over the glittering ocean. It could be an absolutely fantastic restaurant rather than just average if there was more attention to good service and staff training. Our table wasn't laid when we sat down but it had been raining so that was very likely the reason. The wait... More

I had lunch here after a tour of the Spice Garden. My Basil Chicken was lovely and I enjoyed the ambience and environment. Service was a bit slow but I wasn't in a hurry so it didn't matter. Everyone was polite and friendly. Nice place for Thai food in Penang.

My fiancé and I ended up at Tree Monkey after a visit at the spice garden. It's kind of in the way so we said why not try it. The first waiter was nice and let us choose our favourite table except the one with the view... but we ended in a nice private lovely table. The next waitress lost... More

The restaurant settings were excellent. Cool under the shade of trees, monkeys on the trees around you but not disturbing the guests. Food was terribly expensive for the quality. Portions were big but I don't think we came to binge. We can probably find similar food in KL at half the price but then reminded ourselves that the settings were... More
