Trendy place

The restaurant features food from Vietnam, Myanmar and Thailand in a trendy and clean setting. When we arrived around 7 pm there were a few guests and we could still get a table without reservations, a little later the restaurant was packed. It was a bit difficult to choose the dishes as the menu... read more

Our hotel recommended this place to us and we loved it. The sharing platter to start was delicious, followed by two very tasty mains. Staff were very attentive and the cocktails were great too!

2nd visit to Monsoon this time wanting to impress some close friends. As usual the starter platter was a real eye opener then the main courses all really good. I cannot fault to food at all. Service was slightly too attentive due to there being so few people in the restaurant. One of my guests even said as a joke... More

If you're looking for the the only place in Saigon that can afford to offer 4 differents styles of Indochina cuisine. Here you will find it! Outstanding atmosphere - large choice of dish - service medium to high quality (depends on the week say) and in top of it a brand new lounge bar in town on the second floor... More

Great food and great service. Our experience at the Monsoon Restaurant was a truly exceptional one. From the starter platter of assorted treats to the prawns in tamarind sauce and the morning glory salad. Every mouthful was a delight and this is especially recommended for vegetarians as they have a large variety of options.

I went there last year and it is nice place you can find in HCM, but not easy to find this place, because you are difficult to find it if you just walk around. Better get address and take taxi to come.

Definitely the best food we ate in Ho Chi Minh. We ate here twice having only stayed in Ho Chi Minh three days, service was hit and miss as they didn't have my friends meal and only told us after they had brought us our food, but they did their best to accommodate us since the restaurant was booked out...

The foods are good. When we just arrived, we are a little bit scared because we were the first customer. After we finished the meal, there were 2 more tables, still few customers. The business was really bad. How they can survive?

Monsoon is in a delightful older building set back from the street that offers wonderful food and a relaxing and fun atmosphere. The food is an eclectic offering of dishes from Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam - something for everyone if you're a fan of SE Asian fare. And it's very well prepared. Lots of good wine choices, too.... More
