We went to funky monkey 3-4 times during our stay and we had a fun night out on each occasion, good laugh doing karaoke and listening to others trying to sing.
We are here on all our visits and the food is pretty decent and good value for money.

If you are staying nearby then it’s worth a visit in my opinion, waiting staff are good fun

Went 3 x to Funky Monkey.
Cocktails are lovely.
Staff very efficient and pleasant.
Burgers are gorgeous! Try one.
Pool tables and darts available which is great if there’s a bit of a storm on and you need to take shelter for a bit.
TV for football too.
Karaoke is good. A shot for every song you sing.
Overall it’s an ok bar. I quite liked it in there.

If you want to have fun with friends this is the place to go if you are on Koh Lanta Island. Friendly staff, Karaoke, Delicious Cocktails. On our way to our hotel one evening we got a flat wheel with our scooter and one of the waiters recognized us from the previous evening at Funky Monkey and stopped to help, he even gave us his scooter to ride back to our hotel while he followed slowly with the flat. If we go to Koh Lanta again Funky Monkey will see us again....

We were looking for a decent place to go for cocktails and a bite to eat in the evening. Saw Funky Monkey and as it looked nice from the outside we thought we’d give it a try.

1. Impossible to get the attention of staff. We had to get up and ask for what we wanted every time. Which was annoying.

2. Cocktails undrinkable. I almost threw up after tasting one of them. I sent it back and they wouldn’t remove it from bill.

3. Music is so loud that you can’t talk or clearly make your order to staff.

4. So expensive! Our bill was the most expensive of our holiday.

Overall, I highly recommend avoiding this place. Just awful. Awful awful.

First time we went to Funkey Monkey we sat for 20 minutes without any attention from any waitress/waiter what so ever, we ended up in leaving. The resturant wasnt even close to full or at peak hour.

We gave it a second go after a few days, after 15 minutes we got a menu and after another 10 minutes we got to order drinks, then 10 minutes more to order food.
The food itself took about 20 minutes to arrive at our table, when it did it tasted ok (we orderd 4 cheese pizza).

Music is very very loud, gets better when the live music goes on.

Slow resturant, loud music and unattentive staff, only reason it gets a 2 and not a 1 star review is that the pizza tasted ok.

Recommendation is going somewhere else if you want to go eat dinner.

Very good pizza and pasta. It seems they realy use original products like mozarella cheese and olive oil. We were happy to have a break from padthai and curry. Good service, life music and drinks at affordable prices.

We went just before the season proper started. However, it was one of the more populated restaurants on the main road. The staff were really friendly and although a few dishes were off the menu the food we had was pretty good. Prices are reasonable. Definitely worth a visit.

We've been here twice and always had a great time here. Great live music continued by karaoke. The western food is on higher level then other restaurants trying to serve western food. The homemade burger was a good choice indeed

We went to the Funky Monkey on a Friday night and had a great night. The service was good and the food very nice. We then had a couple of complementary games of 8 ball before having some fun with the Karaoke.

We came here on a Monday night and ordered several cocktails. There was a decent live band playing so we stuck around. We each ordered cocktails priced like you were at a proper cocktail bar thinking they might be decent. Unfortunately not a single one was drinkable. Unusually sweet and watered down, we amused ourselves by playing Rock Paper Scissors for who had to take a sip from which cocktail. This actually made the night tolerable if not enjoyable until the waitress stole 20 dollars from us when we were expecting change - thus causing major confusion between us and the establishment. We left with nothing but a sour taste in our mouths and a hole in our wallets. Avoid this bar.
