"Pad Thai with "green noodles" (not on the menu) is my favorite. This is my go-to spot to take visitors for Thai food. Not a 5-star rating because it's not a Michelin-level restaurant, BUT the food is just so good, the staff are always so friendly, polite and accommodating, and the ambiance is casual but nice. As long as you're not looking for an engagement-proposal worthy restaurant, you won't be disappointed! I have tried many things on the menu (pumpkin curry, calamari, spring rolls, green papaya salad), and I haven't come across anything that wasn't delicious."

"We go to Koh Samui and the Monkey regularly. It is excellent, and just down the block. Lucky for us. Our list of favorites is long, including corn fritters, spring rolls, Sea Bass curry, Tom Ka Gai soup, steak salad, all the vegetable dishes, fried banana dessert and the wait staff. We are always welcomed and get friendly service from everyone we encounter. We will be back soon."

"My friend and I met here for dinner on a Tuesday night. It wasn't too busy, so the noise level was not bad. The servers were friendly and attentive. The food arrived quickly and was quite tasty. We had the Jungle Curry, Sea Bass Clay Pot, and Basil Chicken. We will definitely come back again!"

"The interior design is great with nice ambiance and decor. Service was great. But my dish was inedible. I came here with a friend and we got the pork ribs for appetizer which was delicious. For main dishes I got the pork belly and my friend got the fish. His dish was great, but my pork belly was so hard it was inedible. I expect pork belly to have a layer of crisp and then moist pork belly with fat, but this was literally slices of what looked, tasted and felt like jerky. Not what I was expecting at all, especially at that price point. My friend and I could only eat a few pieces and left the rest because it was literally inedible. I felt like I was gnawing on the sole of a leather shoe. I might come back, just would order something else, which is a shame because I love pork belly and it was terrible to see such a waste."

"We were disappointed that the classic Pumpkin Curry is no longer served in a small pumpkin and seemed overloaded with green peppers as filler. Prices also are sky high, I guess reflecting the growth of the neighborhood. It's still a good restaurant, but we had driven from across town based on what we had remembered from the last time there."

"I used to love this place, and its sister restaurant Another Monkey on Valencia. I only recently heard that Another Monkey had closed in 2013, so we went to Koh Samui and the Monkey the other night. I was surprised to be able to get a reservation so easily at the last minute - that should have been a sign. I don't know what happened to this place, but it was almost empty at 8:00 on Friday. The wait staff was nice enough, but not as attentive as they used to be. Then the food came - it wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. Just so-so. It makes me sad, but it just isn't what it used to be. I won't be back."

"Love this place. Good selection of tasty Thai Food, and it's usually not too crowded. The ambiance is nice - typical Asian themes in the decorating. The service depends on which server you get, but it's never been terrible, in my experience.
If you go, definitely try the roti with ice cream for desert. So good!"

"Service and Food was great. Close to the AT&T park. Liked the special menu for the Billy Joel concert. Smart move for the Restaurant. Loved the Curry Chicken with Pumpkin. Will be going back to try their regular menu."
