Pan Seared Duck Breast
Featuring a succulent Australian Gippsland duck breast seared to create an exceptionally crisp skin yet tender and juicy interior, this refined entrée dish beautifully balances savory Asian flavors. Plated atop bok choy, gai lan and shiitake mushrooms sautéed in oyster sauce with ginger and garlic then paired with smooth duck liver mousse, this refined plate showcases exquisite cuisine.

Grilled Wagyu Beef Tenderloin
Of the best tenderloin offerings on Phuket, the ultra-premium grade Miyazaki Wagyu beef selection at Three Monkeys needs to be tasted to be believed. Cooked over a wood fire at scorchingly high heat for mere seconds per side, the beef emerges mouthwateringly rare with a perfectly charred crust over extraordinarily succulent and flavorful meat. Served with Ponzu butter, tempura onion rings and grilled vegetables, carnivores will be in heaven.

Wasabi Crusted Salmon
An epic twist on salmon using ingredients of opposite origins – Atlantic salmon from icy Norwegian seas coated in wasabi from Japan’s subtropical forests – this creation reveals amazing flavor synergies. The spicy horseradish kick from the light wasabi panko crust plays smashing contrast against the salmon’s rich oiliness. Paired with potato and leek tart and ponzu foam, textures and bright flavors build to new heights.

Banana Roti and Brown Butter Gelato
While the savory menu excels, Three Monkeys’ sweet endings warrant equal attention. This sophisticated dessert features a warm banana crepe drizzled in coconut caramel and topped with heavenly brown butter gelato from the restaurant’s artisanal all-natural ice cream. It’s an irresistible taste of tropics meets temperate zones in one phenomenal bite after scrumptious bite.
