Indian
Welcome to the Jungle! Four Monkeys was created by four cousins who wanted to bring both their Indian and American culture to the heart of New Jersey. The Name “Four Monkeys” stems from a thousand-year-old tale that embodies the four virtues of beliefs that lead to a peaceful and harmonious life:

Hear No Evil
See No Evil
Speak No Evil
Do No Evil

Fortunately, the tale never said anything about eating!

Our menu consists of a twist on Indian dishes where traditional flavors meet modern culture. Come take a seat at our table and allow your taste buds to go bananas!

A reminder, we ask that all parties limit their experience at the table to 90 minutes. Sitting at a table for longer than one and one-half hours can interfere with waiting guest’s reservations and their ability to enjoy the restaurant, too. During our busiest hours we reserve the right to enforce 90 minute sitting limits.

    Four Monkeys food did not meet our expectations. Ambience is good. Service was not outstanding but it was not bad either. It was decent. Food however was just ok. Kurkure bhindi was a bit too lemony but overall good. Pani Puri was just ok. Eggplant brushetta was good. Spicy Corn soup was very spicy and lacked flavor. Masala tostones - Had no flavor and a bad raw onion taste. Crunch Cauliflower - These were just cauliflower pakoras. Lotus root & lentil dumpling was ok. Just had 3 to 4 lotus root chips for garnishing. Rest was just a simple dahi wada. Tiramisu gulab-jamun was too sweet and mostly felt like cream & gulab-jamun pieces. Did not have any coffee flavour. Just had some coffee powder sprinkled over it. Not worth it for the price.

    My family and i dined at 4 Monkeys last night to celbrate my wifes birthday. My wife and I are new to Indian Cuisine but my 2 daughters and our server helped guide us through. Everything was delcious. Well prepared, hot ( or cold depending on the dish). Nice place, smelled great when we came in and our service was friendly and efficiant. My daughters who eat Indian food all the time in the city said that it was as good as the best places in the city. I can also say that we were full and happy when we left. The place is small and has an elevated sound level. Thats probably becuase we were the loudest and people had to talk above us! I'm glad we went there and I 'm happy I expanded my palate to include Indian food. Not sure what took me so long.

    1st time there so stuck with the basics on entrees -- Palak Panner was fantastic - Butter Chicken also great. Apps were okay - the Guacamole for the Desi Guac was good but the "chip" was odd -- I liked the Lotus Root Chaat but my wife was not a fan. Obviously we had dessert elsewhere -- until an indian restaurant starts adopting some western recipes, I'm out! We will definitely go back to explore more of the menu.

    Went with friends for a birthday dinner. The restaurant was highly recommended by two other friends so I was excited to try it. It did not disappointment. The menu is creative and plenty of options for all eaters and dietary preferences. Food was delicious and service was great. Very nice ambience as well. Best off, it was very fairly and moderately priced and a great value.

    I was disappointed with sitting in the middle of the floor when a side table was available but supposedly reserved. No one showed up. Also the boneless lamb Labadhard was chewy and so tough that it was even difficult to cut. Very bad! Dessert was excellent: 3 tier ice cream. Service was impeccable!

    We were a party of 7. It was a 30th birthday celebration for my daughter who was born on Christmas Day. We all love Indian food and we celebrate her birthday each year at an Indian restaurant. The food, service and ambiance was amazing. Thanks for making our dinner a wonderful memory. We’ll see you next year. Sending you Much Love and Peace for the New Year.

    We enjoyed the Samosas and the ‘Thetcha’ Paneer Tikka. We were warned the latter was spicy and it was very much so. The Lamb Lababdar was excellently tender and in a wonderful sauce. The Goat Curry was very good as well. We had the garlic Naan which was good. The Tiramasu was very creamy and loved the flavor. The rice was perfectly cooked.

    The menu was creative and interesting with a twist on Indian cuisine, though they ran out of some ingredients they were quick to make suggestions on vegetarian alternatives - which turned out great. The spice level was appropriate and we were made aware while placing the order. The service was great; we will be back soon.
