“Great fun for the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

We came to Koh Chang in mid February. It didn't take long til Monkeys was our regular restaurant for lunch or dinner. The menu was simple, with few but really good dishes. they had full english and fish and chips, that tasted really good! Their gimmick is puzzlegames. Some were so hard, they couldn't be solved. They show football on large screens as well.

Thank you so much for your nice comments. We try very hard to make sure every customer we serve has good quality food. As well as good food we like to offer customers a nice ambience, free wifi, free pool and like you said live sport..... and of course a few games/puzzles. If you come back next time I will show you how to solve them :-)

“Great staff and Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Monkey's Bar and Restaurant on White Sands Beach in Koh Chang is a great place to eat. The place is clean and comfortable and dining there is a pleasant experience. We were very impressed with the Cambodian waiter who served us. His English was very good and he was chatty but very efficient. He made us feel welcome. We were satisfied with the food, ambiance and price and would recommend Monkey's to anybody visiting Koh Chang. We are going to try the breakfast next time. We have heard it is great.

It was good to here you had a pleasant experience dining with us. I appreciate you taking the time to write a review. I am also pleased you were impressed by one of my waiters. All my staff try hard to do their job but they also go out of their way to make customers feel wekcome.

I`m glad you found my restauarant clean and comfotable. I bought it in Novemeber 2012 and since then I have invested in many things to make it nice such as new furniture, cutlery, toilets, TVs, Snooker table. So its rewarding when a customer like yourself sees that.

I hope by now you have tried our breakfast...my favourite, as I am from England, is the Full English, along with real Cumberland Sausages.

Thank you once again and I hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday in Koh Chang.
