“Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Food and service at this place is very good. The staff will recommend if you are not sure what you wanted to have. Just transportation is a bit of problem

“Much more than a Steakhouse!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

My wife and I have been coming to the Brass Monkey for 5 years while living in Asia, and we have NEVER had anything but exceptional food, service, and hospitality by Raj, the owner, plus the entire staff.
This man puts his heart and soul in his restaurant, and it clearly shows in the quality of food and service that he and his wait staff provide.
This is a MUST DO restaurant if you like being treated like a "regular" patron, even if it is your first visit.
The very first time we came in, he imparted such personal care upon us, that he arranged a cab for us after dinner, and even offered to take us back to our hotel if required! You'll never see this level of personal attention anywhere else!
And this is just the beginning! His wait staff managed by "Amy" is second to none. You will never want or wait for anything. She does an amazing job keeping everything flowing, yet no one goes un-noticed, or without service.
Then there's Raj's nephew Jacylin (sp), the man in the kitchen. This guy is fantastic, and the meals they turn out are absolutely heaven on a plate.
This evening we enjoyed Lobster Thermador for 2 (~$RM 85-175 depending on size) and it was to die for. Then be sure to end you meal with the World Famous "Chocolate Pudding". It will leave you waiting to come back again!
If you never eat in this restaurant, it will be your loss, and that I guarantee!

“Awesome Steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Unique concept plus the ambiance is very welcoming. The pastas are good but the steaks served here are among the best in Kota Kinabalu. The Wagyu Beef steak can be make your purse cry, but it worth the money you spent. Try out the lava cake - awesome!!!
