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.

Great food .
Staff were very friendly.
Tables were very clean and ready when we arrived. We did think the cocktails were over priced for their small size but still yummy

Was surprised to get a table during peak times, but service and food was very good and outdoor table recommended at this time of year

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

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!

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!!

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.

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.
