“Great coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Taking a break back from seeing the nearby waterfall, we stopped for a coffee. Great coffee and a nicely done latte. Air-conditioned and lovely setting - especially the wooden tables. Clean and modern.

“Best service I've experienced ... Went the extra mile for us”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Not only is it a good overall restaurant, with good food ... But they went extra mile for us when we left our baby daughters fluffy toy there. The owner himself tracked us down through many sources and returned our daughters fluffy toy ... Good on you sir, I wish there where more like u

“An Island Oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Off the east coast of Phuket island, there is very little in the way of western/tourist amenities. This is not a complaint - in fact the opposite, but nonetheless, we were happy to discover Monkeypod in our journeys.

The establishment is billed as a coffeehouse, but it features a full menu of both western and Thai fare. While all the food we've tried has been good, the local specialities stand out. Ask the staff for recommendations of local Phuket/Southern dishes and you likely will not be disappointed!

Fruit smoothies are delicious and there are often several homemade desserts to choose from after the meal.

The restaurant is austere in its architectural simplicity and these design choices make it striking beneath the beautiful canopy of trees that seem to extend endlessly about the grounds. These old growth trees are a special feature.

For those exploring off the beaten path, this is an oasis not to be missed!

“very nice place, good for a great lunch, close to the airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Monkeypod is some 15 minutes from the airport, and offers you a great cup of coffee with lunch etc. Restaurant has a very smart lay out and of modern architecture. Minimalist/Bauhaus on Phuket !
Staff is very friendly and you will enjoy.

“Make a special trip to go here - it's worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

A little off the beaten track for Phuket but what a find. Nicest staff you could meet, coffee is superb and food of the highest standard. A great place to have lunch or early evening meal or just stop by for a coffee and cake. You need transport but its an unspoilt part of the island that is worth exploring. Clean modern surround just adds to this friendly welcoming gem.
