Monkey & me is another one of those places around the corner from me. I've been there a couple of times and one of the main take-aways is that it's not really a place to go and enjoy a night at, rather, it's almost better to make use of the take-out service. The reason is twofold; firstly, the decor and the general lay-out of the place seems almost clinicial and quite boring, and secondly, the staff is so friendly and eager to please that you'll find them literally hovering around your table, quickly grabbing anything that looks unused. I find that terribly annoying and personally prefer to have to wait some time for someone to come and pick up my finished plate. Having plates snatched under you nose reminds me of the US.
But anyway.. the value is amazing. You pay 6 pounds for very good food so in that sense, it's very difficult to complain. But if you're after a nice evening with Thai food, I'd go for other places in London.
