Monkey Tree Restaurant is a located inside Tropical Spice Garden in Penang Teluk Pahang, the restaurant is high up middle of the tree and the extended dining area is surrounded by big old tree. The restaurant itself use wood as it main decoration even for the chair and table, the environment is top notch as right in front of you is the big ocean.
If it rain then you can choose to sit inside tatami kind of seat, it is very comfortable as well.
Roselle Mojito RM22.80 ,Mojito (white rum, lime juice, soda & crushed mint leaves)
Miang Kam RM14.80, Wild betel nut leaves served with fresh ginger, shallots, lime, chili, hashed coconut, peanut, dried shrimp & chef sauce
Thai Tapas RM45, you got 12 choices of Tapas and for just RM45 you can select all 12 items, since we are first time here hence we select all 12 items, with that we can try all their dishes at one go.
Overall the Thai Tapas is not something very special instead most of the item is deep fried, what make it special is the chef has the heart to prepare 1 items each to form a very well presentable dish.
The taste is pretty normal nothing spectacular, unfortunately Darling Crab is spoiled.

Tomyum Prawn Medium RM20.80 Thick lemongrass soup with mushroom, chili & lime juice. The Tomyam soup is pretty rich and inside a medium size has around 6 prawns, if you love the authentic Thai tomyam then you will not like this as it doesn’t has enough sour taste instead it pretty spicy.
Steamed Rice RM2.50 each, a very well shaped rice but pretty pricey.
Overall the food is just normal but as expected we are here because of the environment.
