Tree Monkey of Tropical Spice Garden (Invited Review)

Tree Monkey @ Tropical Spice Garden, Teluk Bahang.

Last Sunday we in a group of ~20 pax (consisted of food bloggers and Penang bloggers) were invited and treated by the boss, Mr. PattKhor and the person-in-charge, Ms Wisakha, through coordination by Warren, CK Lam and Criz.

Let's move on to explore what you could expect from the Tree Monkey!

Tree Monkey is a "Back To Nature" alfresco restaurant. It has just started its business recently on 30th Jul 2010 as a pork-free restaurant. It serves North Eastern Thai, Asian and Western cuisine (vegetarian is also available). Their chefs are from North East Thailand. The herbs used in preparing dishes are taken from the Spice Garden itself.

Tree Monkey is located beside the Tropical Spice Garden. Use this entrance and take a few minutes hike up and that will lead you to the restaurant.

Green. Wood. Peace in Rustic Garden.

It is a great place for those who like to to hang out in rustic and tranquil ambience. One who knows how to appreciate the art of wooden structure building should find this place interesting too as this restaurant was built without using nails. Their wooden furnitures are also imported from Chiangmai, Thailand.

The open space dining floor.

Bloggers were busy taking photos around the restaurant.

Great food and hospitality offered with ~80 pax of capacity and WiFi equipment in this restaurant make this a cool place for either family dining or couple dining. Alcoholic beverages are available too (RM30 per bottle corkage charge).

This is monkey that you may spot in the surrounding of this restaurant if you are lucky. I didn't spot any on the day that we went. Argh!

WELCOME DRINK: Sunset Paradise - RM10.00 (only available from 6.00pm-7.00pm). This is a special drink prepared for us, not in the menu yet.

A refreshing tropical fruit mocktail. I could taste a mixture of orange, pineapple and lemon in it.
