                                                        Our table was booked for outdoors and unfortunately it was raining heavily. The staff did everything they could to accommodate us by offering takeaway, Letting us wait inside until the rain passed and putting us at the top of the list for an indoor table as soon as one was made available. We were seated quickly, the food came out quickly and it was beautiful! Can't go past $10 burger night! Every time i visit Hungry Monkey Kiama the staff make me feel important and valued. Always amazing, friendly service!

                                                        Food and service was fantastic. A little cold sitting outside for dinner in winter, but not much that can be done to help that! Would recommend any of the burgers.

                                                        First time here and was really very nice. We sat outside which had a lovely ambiance and heaters. We were at a little table very close to door which was very busy with waiters etc but everyone was so nice it was fine but would avoid it next time. Great food lovely staff.

                                                        Excellent service. Great menu and run like clockwork. The staff are better than most of the waitstaff in high end restaurants. Well done and keep it up .

                                                        Although we had a booking, still had to wait to get our table. Had to order our food before we got a our table before the kitchen closed. A little disappointing.

                                                        50 minute wait for a burger. Not busy; but take away seemed prioritised. Nice food, and pleasant staff, just a long wait!!

                                                        If you’re offering outdoor dining in summer then some sort of shelter is needed. The umbrella that didn’t change angles was useless for when the sun was beat down on us. It made it tough to enjoy the delicious food.

                                                        We had a lovely night at the hungry monkey. The staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful. The food was awesome. Super tasty!!! We had a steak sandwich and the Bad boy burger with some sweet potato fries and the sauce that comes with the fries is to die for 😁😁😁 Its great value for money. They had a solo singer performing who had a lovely voice and the volume was just right. We will definitely be back!!!

                                                        Good burger. Chips top class. Roasted veg salad nice but too much lettuce.

                                                        Our waiter spoke broken English at best, tucked the 4 of us in the corner next to the electricity box. We then ordered off the menu and what is on the menu is exactly what we got. We ordered an $18 burger and that is all we got. No side of salad or chips. The food was nice but no way worth the money we paid. 3 burgers and chips for $65....In my opinion, look elsewhere.

                                                        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
