All the food we tried was absolutely spot on, the fish mix starter is great value for money encompassing a sample of fishes cooked three different ways and the dry spice of the prawn starter made our mouths tingle for more! The Thali main courses are the best way to sample Indian food! Your choice of main with a few... More

We absolutely loved this place when it was Lasan and even though it is still part of the Lasan group it still hasnt lost any of its charm or panache. The restaurant has had a make over and feels less formal than it did previously, although that wasnt an issue. Its just lovely to have a meal in a relaxed... More

Went to Raja Monkey on a 2 day trip to Birminham. Very vibrant for a Tuesday at night. The food was delicious and very well presented. Loved the atmosphere and the decor. Staff were brilliant. If we lived locally, we would be eating here all the time.

We have friends in Hall Green and come to visit a couple of times a year. This time they took us to Raja Monkey it's in the empty hole that Lasan left, it was my favourite! However the monkey has a given it a modern twist and the food was really good. Nice menu, friendly waiter with some good advice.... More

We had an amazing experience at Raja Monkey! Absolutely amazing food... so much flavour in everything we ordered. The service we received was exceptional, the waiting staff, and chefs were so polite and helpful and always had a smile of their faces. Not many restaurants go out there way to make sure you have a great experience, but Raja Monkey... More

This is street cafe food. This is not fine dinning and should not be compared to. The venue has a rustic charm, the staff are very friendly and the menu limited. The speed of service some may find slow, I found perfect as it allowed time between courses to enjoy friends company. This is all about flavour and quality of... More
