MONKEY - Back to nature
If youre looking for somewhere to go where you can convene with nature yet have a drink and good food at the same time, then head for this place. One of the very latest in Penang, Tree Monkey is the unique back to nature alfresco restaurant based in the Tropical Spice Gardens in Teluk Bahang.
The outlet is on the edge of a wooden platform and a private gazebo which overlooks the gorgeous Andanman sea, and the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach opposite seem just underneath. The place was even constructed using as natural and tradition methods and materials as possible: there are very few nails, and the bamboo and thatch roof over the bar is made with alang alang imported from Bali. Its all very rustic, and beautifully kitted out with teak furniture from Chiangmai.
The food is mainly Thai, predominantly Issan food from the north eastern Thailand, which is usually BBQ meats and spicy salads, with a smattering of western and local dishes as well. What will distinguish their menu is that it makes use of herbs which are actually grown in the gardens. During the day, set lunches and simple a la carte (Pork Free) WIFI available.
Whether you stop by for a snack and drink after a relaxing ramble round the gardens, or go to enjoy the good food, its a wonderful place to relax in a natural and green surroundings. In the evening, watch the gorgeous sunset whilst tucking into their special Thai Tapas appetisers which will go beautifully with any one of the large range of drinks on offer. The place also caters for function with a seating capacity of 70 pax.
By the way, the place is so called because of the grey Misty Monkeys with their white eyes which roam freely there you may be lucky enough to catch sight of one!
