The Brass Monkey is a short trip from the central area, but well worth the effort. Food was well done and came quickly. My husband had the King Kong steak and loved it. I had the delicious grilled salmon with dill sauce. We also couldn't pass up the chocolate pudding dessert...the highlight of the meal! Not to be missed! Prices were very reasonable for this quality of food.
Raja, the owner, was as pleasant and welcoming as could be. I can see why he is frequently mentioned on this board. He truly cares about each guest. All the staff were lovely. Overall, a wonderful experience!

If you're tired of the crowds downtown, book at table and go! It was under 10MYR for an Uber.
