The Funky Monkey Cafe - CLOSED 

Cuisine: Cafe

My friend and I went to the funky monkey cafe for lunch two weeks ago. Quite a wide choice available but we both had bacon and eggs which were very nice and thoroughly enjoyed.

The funky monkey is next to a childcare centre and I would say their regular customers are going to be the mums and children that have either been or are going into the childcare centre, it was okay but made talking quite difficult as the noise level from the children was pretty high. At one stage, my friend and I were practically have to shout at each other across the table to make ourselves heard.

Travancore Hutt - CLOSED 

Cuisine: Indian

My family and I went to the Travancore on Mother’s Day for dinner. Fairly small restaurant and the tables were small but the food made up for it.
Everything we ordered was delicious and really quite different to other Indian food that we had eaten before.
Be careful if you order the “hot” version of a meal, my son who likes hot food was struggling:)
All in all, food was excellent, could have done with more waiters, the two guys working that night were run off their feet.
Definitely plan on going back again

Lok Lok Steamboat R & S Noodle House 

Cuisine: Asian

Went to Lok Lok for our wedding anniversary dinner and loved it. The steamboat experience was great fun and something different to do. The owner Robert was very attentive not only to us but other tables too. Good variety of food to suit all taste buds. There was also a separate menu if you didn’t want to try the steamboat experience. We will definitely be going back soon.

Elke's Licenced Restaurant 

Cuisine: German

The service here was terrible. As we were a party of about 12, we were asked to preorder our mains about 2 days before we were dining. Despite this, it took an hour and a half from the time we sat down to the time the mains were served. Another table that had come in after us, were served long before we got our meals. Although I had also preordered my dessert, they had no record of it and to be honest, I just wanted to leave so didn’t order dessert. If we had not been in a party of 12, I wouldn’t even have waited an hour and a half in the first place. Wouldn’t recomment this place to anyone. The good food didn’t make up for the wait or the service. The waitress was far more interested in making sure the beer was flowing.

Mid Valley Malaysian Restaurant 

Cuisine: A La Carte, Asian, Chinese, Malaysian

My family and I went to the Mid Valley Malaysian for my husband’s birthday in July. Although the food was very good, the restaurant was absolutely freezing. The family had the other table left their coats, hats and gloves on during their meal!!!! and we couldn’t wait to leave because it was so cold. Pity as the food was good

Ginjis Real Mongolia BBQ Buffet Restaurant 

Cuisine: Asian, Barbeque, Buffet

My family and I have eaten at this restaurant several times and our company has had our staff xmas lunch here two years running. The food is excellent. You put whatever you want from the huge selection of fresh cut up meats and seafood, veg etc in a bowl, add the sauce you want also a huge selection etc and they fry it then and there. As it is buffet style, you can go up several times if you want…. I always forget to leave space for the pancake and ice cream :)
