Great dinner. Lovely service and food, will be a regularly dinner lunch spot from now on
Fantastic place for a casual dinner. The food was amazing.
All employees at absolutely lovely!!! Especially david
There was a blackout!
It went for the entire meal. Not there fault I get that but even if they offered a drink for the inconvenience or a reduction in cost. That would have been appreciated. Shame
My husband and I go to the Hungry Monkey every week for date night. The staff and food are exceptional on every occasion, regardless of how busy or quiet they are.
I love The Hungry Monkey and would normally give it a 5 every time. Unfortunately it took a very long time ( over 15 minutes to put our drink order in ) and it was not even that busy at the time. I have found the last few times we have had dinner there the service has been a bit slow. In saying that, once we got our drinks and a bottle of wine the food came out quickly and the wait staff were on top of it!
Thank you so much for beautiful food in a lovely environment !! This place is one of a kind and highly recommended
Great food, friendly and helpful staff and $10 burgers on a Wednesday night.. what more could you want! All in a fun and and warm environment. Can’t wait to go back!
Love this place, food is always delicious & service with a smile.
I've had dinner at Hungry Monkey several times now and always enjoy the food and wine. My favourite place for dinner in Kiama. Also love the funky decor and being able to sit outside on the balcony on a warm night. Keep up the good work guys!!
Food was absolutely delicious! Our whole party was very happy with their meals!
Probably the best burger I've ever had! Delicious and fresh food. Fast and friendly service.
We all ate the burgers which were absolutely delicious. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We dined outside and the ambiance is lovely. The beer selection is fantastic.
The food was good as was the service. The only down side was we ordered multiple tasting dishes and everything came out at the same time.
Always a great experience. Delicious food, amazing staff and vibe. Kids love it as do we 🙌
Chairs were too small when you were sitting with someone on the bench seat. Made it really awkward
Definitely the best burgers in town, great friendly and professional service - a family favourite.
This place is the best burger restaurant on the South Coast! Always a fantastic meal and lovely servers, go here with all of my friends and family when they come to visit.
It’s always a pleasure eating at the hungry monkey . The food is always delicious and fresh .
Arancini balls had a tomato sauce and cheese but it used to be like a purée pea thing that I preferred otherwise food was epic
Our favourite burger place! We love going there. Great food and service every time.
Great food and good value on a Wednesday night. Staff were helpful and friendly although they were obviously getting frustrated we stayed until 9pm.
This is a welcoming warm restaurant where the service is friendly and helpful. Hamburgers are excellent. The food in general is good and tasty and serves are plentiful. Our only minor gripe was that some of the desserts were a bit bland. However, I was very pleased with my poached pear dessert.
Great food and service , would come back again for sure.
Always a great meal, fast service and great atmosphere! Love dining here!
Absolutely fabulous. The staff, venue and food were all amazing, the food was delicious and I intend to visit again in future! As someone who likes good burgers this is the place you want to visit!
We had a girl called Tatiana ,was her first night, she was awesome. She was very helpful & chatty. Other staff were awesome & friendly too.
Always a nice pkace to eat, food fabulous
My husband and I have been coming to HM for years now and tonight we ventured out (kid free!) to try the dinner menu.
The food was great, the purée on the pork dish was quite a contrast in temperature to the pork - it was refrigerated cold so that clashed a little bit with the bit pork belly but the flavour was bang on.
Our seat was tucked behind a wall which was a little disappointing considering we were celebrating my birthday but all in all it was a great experience and we will (of course!) be back.
Highly recommend the Barramundi- top quality restaurant meal
A very enjoyable meal well cooked and presented drinks were an acceptable price the only problem we both had was the size of the print on the menu maybe you could have a couple of menus with larger type for people like us who have a problem reading small print. Thank you
The burgers were fantastic the service was quality the whole team are lovely thoroughly enjoyed my experience.
Booked the restaurant at 7.30am on the Friday morning for 6.30pm dinner on that night. The booking asked if we wanted inside or outside dining. We picked inside as I haven’t been well with a bad back. We were driving up from the south coast for our daughters birthday as she had picked this restaurant as where she wanted to eat.
We rang ahead on our way to the restaurant as we going to be 10 minutes late.
We arrived at the restaurant and gave our names they directed us to a picnic bench outside and said this is your table. We informed the lady we had booked at table inside and she said oh well we didn’t get that and there nothing inside. So we were left sitting outside in the cold and dark on a picnic table. We had to get the kids blankets from the car and couldn’t see the menu or our food when it arrived due to it being dark and no lighting. It was a cold night and the only reason we stayed was because we promised our daughter her dinner here. Overall she was pretty uncomfortable for the whole meal as it was freezing. I had to stand for some of the meal as I was so uncomfortable and in pain sitting on a timber bench.
We have taken the kids here numerous times driving up from the south coast and have told the kids we won’t be back. I have NEVER ever given bad feedback to a restaurant EVER. I was so disappointed in our experience here and the waitresses really didn’t care. If I knew in advance that we wouldn’t have been seated inside I would never have travelled up and gone their. The food was nice but just as nice as any other burgers I’ve had at other great restaurants on the south coast. The thing is if you treat regular customers bad then they just won’t return.
Lovely food, but the new "Feed Me" menu is a bit weird. If you order it for a group of four, as we did, you get two plates with two portions on each which you then need to dissect to ensure you all get some of it. Having said that, it was delicious and great value. Staff are terrific and ambience good. Highly recommended.
The best atmosphere and the food was great....definitely going there again
I’m a regular and have always enjoyed my experience at hungry monkey. The food is bomb! No burgers I’ve eaten compare to it. And the staff is super easy going and accomodate to their customers needs.
I remember once, I order a meal to go and the worker did not ask for my name because I knew her. However, it turned out she thought my name was something else. So when my meal was ready, I heard ‘Chloe!?’. But, this wasn’t my name so I kept waiting thinking my meal was not ready, and waiting. The owner came to check up on me as I was waiting quite a long while and we ended up figuring out that my meal was in fact ready and the staff did not ask for my name. The owner, without me asking or even expecting anything, told me to wait and added some more freshly cooked goodies to my bag (chips to share). Without me expecting anything, this exceeded my expectations. But all my experiences have been awesome! Good job!
Excellent service. Great quality food. The flavours of each dish we're all spot on.
The food at Hungry Monkey is fabulous. We ate dinner twice over a weekend stay in Kiama. The share plate options were exquisite. The burgers were also excellent. Small wine list but some nice options. Staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely recommended.
The food was delicious and the staff were very nice.
Tastiest, cutest, coolest place to eat in Kiama. Beautiful at night with the fairy-light lit trees. Lovely owners and staff. Good craft beer selection! Will be back.
Good burgers - attentive service. Good mix of clientele - definitely a good place to eat in Kiama
