Great food. Somehow fish head curry was bland yesterday. The egg, beef rendang and chap Chye were nice. The chicken was also bland and need to cut into smaller piece.
Great view and food - the asam fish head, beef rendang, fish and sweet potatoes fries. Portion is large too. Ambiance is great with great service.
Cute cafe for drinks and cakes. Will come back for tea break.
The Peranakan food were awesome. Children are also able to have them as some of the dishes were non-spicy. They have chicken wings, fries and nuggets which are good finger food. Serves cold beer too. After dinner, children hang around at the kids corner. Adults were able to chill with quality board games. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Dinning area was well decorated and spacious. Ample of parking space. Overall a great dining experience for me and my party of 9. Highly recommended.
We were a large group of 14 pax. Staff were NOT very helpful. We ordered a few sets of peranakan dishes to share for a group of 14 pax, so obviously it would not be a single peranakan dish (like a serving bowl of ayam buah keluak) for each guest, but serving staff placed the same dish on 1 side of the table and when I told the staff to spread out the dishes, they were all sent to the other end of the table. Maybe the serving staff was expecting us to distribute the dishes ourselves.??!!) When we asked for serving spoons citing that there were not enough, the reply that was given to me (unhappily) was that we had used them all -- those that were placed at the table. Obviously they were used thus my walking to them to get more and I did not make even make a fuss to call them to bring more. It may be partial self-service café/restaurant eg selfservice for water and chillies etc. but surely there must be some level of service for the price that we are paying?. I walked away from the cafe feeling like I was working for the cafe minus the apron/uniform and standing behind counter.
foods taste & presentation are good, price value is reasonable too. But the whole place look too empty, maybe you should set some point to have suitable photo taking corner with nice decoration, etc. It is good to have a kid playing corner, but I think the items are not sufficient, maybe can consider adding books, educational blocks, etc. And since this cafe is name as 5 little monkeys cafe, you should place more monkeys soft toys around (can consider sellable too). And maybe can play some light music throughout too
Communication skills by the two waiters there could be improved. Added more oysters for oyster omelette for $3 (told us about the additional charge only after the order was taken, just before it was served). The dish served was indeed containing a number of oysters but I am not sure how much oysters were really added since the amount of oysters just seemed normal. Omelette served was a tad too salty and had egg shells in them. Gave the feedback when paying and was told that we should have told them about this at first. So that's a heads up for others who are visiting to voice out your complaints early.
Good value meal, nice and quiet peaceful ambience. Would definitely go again. We had several dishes - Assam pedals fish, oyster omelette, curry chicken, chap Chye, otah. The otah was a set meal costing $6.50 for the otah and tea/coffee/juice(packet kind). The taste of otah wasn't really special, so I wouldn't recommend it. The oyster omelette was something new on their menu, and it was very, I mean extremely oily! Another no-no for me. The rest of the dishes were superb as always.
5 Little Monkeys Cafe is a unique place that family and friends can spend time bonding. The food is very nice and well presented. Besides, there is also beautiful sunset view from the building
Nice peranakan food. Tried the bulk keluak, sambal prawn petai, and fish maw soup. Fish maw wrapped around minced meat, don't see this often and it was generous and good. Only 1 buah keluak but chicken was tender. Sambal was a bit sweet for me but my colleagues liked it. Service not quite as attentive and no more cakes. Hence rating of 5 instead of 6
