Dinner On Top Of Tree Monkey, Teluk Bahang

ONE OF THE LATEST FOOD ATTRACTIONS THAT LURED ME TO PENANG IS THE TREE MONKEY at Tropical Spice Garden, Teluk Bahang.  Just recently opened, I was told, this Northeastern Thai, Asian and Western cuisines mixed and it is kind of special because it is nestled on a high wooden platform, overlooking panoramic views of the Andaman Sea... In a way, the ambiance is really romantic, facing the sunset while dining....

We parked along the main road, one has to be careful... and ascended up a slope leading to the Tree Monkey, it is like dining in a tree house which reminded me of those Enid Blyton's books... LOL.. We were there quite early, around 6pm and the sun was above the sea level... Tip: Do not go too early for dinner.  Initially the hot sun was glaring into our eyes and I have to end up wearing my sunglasses even when I was eating! But after awhile, when the sun was setting, the discomfort was forgotten... the cool breeze in the later evening produces a very romantic ambiance...

The steps leading to the Tree Monkey.... 

Affectionately called Ah Lai... 
Dusky Leaf Monkey but I didn't see him that evening..
The wooden platform overlooking to the sea....
On one side...
Where shall we sit to avoid the sun?
Must find a perfect spot to avoid the sun... 
When will the sun go down?
How about this table?  No, a bit too hot.. 
The food served... 
And the bill and address... 
Towards the sun set....
Lights were on... 
Our sunset dinner for the evening... 
Tip of the day:  Go when the sun has set... 
The food will definitely taste better.. 
LOL..

  4. Your last two pictures are gorgeous! And I see your shadow snapping in the first photo! All the food looks awesome!! There looks to be some kind of rice in such a pretty shape. I know it must be great because it is up so high and you have to walk. It is also hidden. But when you find it, it is a gem. So they have this mascot monkey?
