Great food and view

We ate here twice on our stay in Batu - the food is fantastic, such great flavours and a lot to choose from on the menu. The service was very good and the view at sunset is beautiful.

We didn't eat anything, but had a few drinks along with coffees. Great place to have a rest after a walk in the garden. Nice set up.

This place is pleasant. The food was nice but nothing amazing, the presentation was very good and the view is lovely. The staff are nice but could be more attentive we sat off the restaurant in a little private area I don;t know if they forgot us a few times

Well worth the visit, but better to book ahead and get table outside where you can watch the sun set. Once place not to be missed. When your there ask for Redmond (Manager) he will only be happy to serve you.

We went here on a double date. I called first for a reservation and told them we wanted to see the sunset. They suggested 6:30 and when we arrived we had a table reserved on the edge of the balcony so we had front row seats to the beautiful view. By 7:00 it was quite full so it was good... More

Sitting on the deck enjoying good Thai food and a view of the ocean is a great way to spend an evening. Tree Monkey came highly recommended and it lived up to the recommendation. They have an excellent selection of fresh seafood and thai specialties - we shared a selection of dishes and all were excellent - thai green curry... More

As a family we did the tour of the spice garden. Easy to get to from Georgetown just watch the taxi pricing - 40RM tops - I'd encourage doing the guided tour as well. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and full of amazing facts. I found the tour a little short but it was made up with great facts and... More

Raymond and his staff run an amazing cafe, In the spice garden tourist park , this is our second visit being here in 2014 and the food quality has not lessened. After our meal we ordered extra just to re-taste the amazing food and the price was great. We even brought our swimmers and had cooling dip in blue waters... More

What a disappointment. After returning many times in 2014, it will be the last time now in 2015. Everything except from the view has changed in a sad way. The view and place remains great, but that was about it, so not worth the effort going there for an expansive meal. It was clear that the whole team changed, the... More
