This is supposed to be a Thai restaurant. The food is really an unsuccessful combination of Chinese and Thai food. Most of the dishes were sweet. The curry had an unusual and not attractive flavour

The Blue Monkey is BYO, and charges only $2.50 per bottle for corkage. Typically Thai restaurant favourites on the menu Mixed starter was excellent as was the barramundi in a black bean sauce. Good service, will return.

I love Thai food and a visit home to Sydney means a visit to Blue Monkey Thai. The seating can be a little tight but once you have ordered you will soon forget your surroundings. This is our favourite little Thai place. The prawns are gigantic and the servings generous. The food is delicious and affordable. My father in law... More

Small and cosy suburb restaurant. Of course you can't expect 5 stars food or environment but its food is good value and taste. Highly recommended garlic lamb, yum and good with a glass of wine. Very friendly and prompt services.

We have eaten at the Blue Monkey once but mostly order take away at least once a month. Super fast delivery and piping hot. Very tasty Thai food that is spicy and not sweet. Not a top class Thai restaurant by any means but good value and generous portions. Great when we don't feel like cooking.

Good food at a reasonable price. Seating was a little tight and noisy but that's pretty universal. Crabs were great.

Had dinner there tonight. My wife and I shared a meal. We had cashew chicken and beef. It was a take away. Always good and fresh. Must book for dinner.
