Wow ! I mean it. The food was simply FANTASTIC. Relatively small venue, tables a bit too close to each other (that’s a minus), elegant ambience, good service.
The food, however, outdid everything else.
The Tom Yum soup (w/prawns) was probably the best I’ve ever had: a perfectly balanced mix of flavours, ingredients were all super fresh, beautiful colors… the works. When I think of food to warm up your heart, now I think of that soup.
Main entree: stir fried prawns with vegs — the prawns were outstandingly fresh, beautifully presented, and perfect color/flavor/texture combination.
Am I glad that the tubes got disrupted this evening and had to take a different route home! On recommendation from a friend who works nearby, I went to Monkey and Me for dinner at around 7pm on a Tuesday evening. There’s another Thai restaurant just a few doors down but she said this was the better one – and though I haven’t been to the other one, I can’t argue!
Service: Thai staff. Friendly, attentive & efficient. Drinks arrived within 2 minutes of ordering. Starters within 5 minutes and mains at a nice 5 minute interval after the starters. Can’t be faulted.
Atmosphere: Really lovely. Some easy-listening back ground music, nice decor & lighting. Though I chose to sit outside where they had a couple of tables. So nice to watch the world go by while the sun was setting.
A fair few of the tables were reserved already (slightly surprising for a Tuesday evening!) and the one side of the restaurant was just about full. But not noisy at all.
Food: presentation was lovely and just looked so yummy. Ingredients clearly high quality. Everything super fresh and piping hot. Taste – just perfect to me. Full of flavour and nothing over-powering despite the fish cakes being spicy. Portions are more than generous!
Value for money: Good. Starter of fish cakes, large portion of Thai crackers, sparkling water, gin & tonic, steamed rice and Massaman curry all came to £22 inclusive or service.
Would I recommend and go back? YES!
Simple decoration, very kind and helpful thai service, the food is amazingly tasty and authentic, really felt like back in thailand, and given the quality and prime location near baker street, very affordable. Highly recommended!

Discovered this restaurant recently and we really enjoyed the simplicity of the decor, the authenthicity of the menu, the quality of the food. This local restaurant without pretention offers a very varied authentic menu at a good price, and being Lao/Thai myself, I am highly recommending this place for a local nice meal. Watch the chillies :-)
monkey&me is the kind of place that a thai would recommend you to go. isn't that enough guarantee?
the menu is long enough to get lost a couple of times, and to lure the waitress to the table before you know a thing to order. let me help you. soups are great, and they are a classic for thai people. either the ones with coconut milk or the glass noddles one will please you. you'll find out why do they call it glass noddles which is already cool.
then go for the curries, and, for god shake, once here, ask for the red, and see how your head is about to exploit with chillie. it is all an experience. if you don't stand spicy food, you should not be in a thai in the first place. however, there are a few options, such as duck, which is also great.
also to say, tables are small, staff is a bit dumb, but decoration is ok, and the food is authentic.
it was cool for me. we pay 40£ for two persons drinking wine and two courses.
