A few friends and I decided to go here for a farewell party and were not dissapointed.

This is my 4th visit and the service and food has been consistently great every time.

Easily the best steak in Sabah by far.

Great atmosphere, lots of funny paintings and fotos around to look at and talk about.

Nice selection of wines from Australia, NZ to France. A little bit on the expensive side but complements the food perfectly.

Friendly and professional staff.

Thanks for a great time Mr Raj and staff, I will pay you a visit next time I want some steak for sure!

Definitely a MUST try restaurant which gives you the best atmosphere, friendly and excellent services especially the staff, Karen and Salleh. Salleh gave a good explanation on the dishes. I went there with 3 friends, we ordered a Grilled AUS/NZ Lamb and fish finger with french fries. The lamb served with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies. The taste of the lamb is just nice and the meat very tender. The presentation of the food is nice. This is the first time i came this restaurant and I'm totally satisfy with the services, foods and drinks. I'm definitely will come back again and try different dishes that is on their menu.

Just went with friends to Brass Monkey last night. I ate NZ Tenderloin steak. Cooked to perfection. Restaurant has nice vibe and setting. Host (Raj) is a most venerable gentleman. Service is excellent. We all enjoyed the food and the wine list was top notch too.

This is very good value for money and excellent service. They keep your glasses topped up with whatever you are drinking and take away idle crockery before you know it. The service is with a smile and very hospitable.

There is also a nice selection of seafood, lamb and lasagne.

With wine, beer and tips expect to pay about RM100-150 per head.
