Great Pan-Asian Cuisine

Monsoon is in a delightful older building set back from the street that offers wonderful food and a relaxing and fun atmosphere.

Ate here on our first night in Vietnam. The restaurant has a modern & stylish interior. The food was beautifully presented & tasted delicious. Staff were efficient & friendly. A great start to the holiday.

I was there 2 years ago and was really impressed with everything. But I was there few days ago, I was surprised that the quality has been decreasing. I feel like the only thing unchanged is its beautiful building and decorations. It is quite trendy and serene. *about food* -became plain, no surprise, no sparkle *about service* - generally waiters... More

Fabulous fusion of cuisines from Myarnma Laos Vietnam and Thailand. The Beetle leak starter and eggplant from Myanmar were excellent. Laos curry to die for. Great service and ambience. Cocktails better than wines.

The food at this restaurant was fresh and very tasty. I'm a huge fan off corn fritters now. The restaurant was recommended by a group of Australians we meet on the streets.

I think the chef was not very happy on the evening of our visit. our order came fast but the food did not leave any distinct mark on pallet or on my mind. Service was good. Parking has always been a worry whenever u plan to visit this place. So ya, in all, only a 2 star experience!!!

An interesting selection of somewhat unfamiliar foods from the region (vietnam, cambodia, laos, thailand, myanmar). a great education amidst some a equally curious collection of fringe paintings and sculptures.

It was walking distance from my hotel so I just went there without reservation - but reservation is advised. Staff is very very friendly and nice - that is what I liked most about the restaurant. The place is nice and comfortable - not too trendy but well decorated. Food was OK. I have had much better SE food elsewhere.... More

We use TA a lot and had read the mostly positive reviews, however Monsoon did not meet our expectations. We found most of the food to be tasteless. One in our party was served after everyone else had finished, and only when the waiter came back with a picture of the dish to confirm the order. Overpriced and overrated.

This was just round the corner from our hotel and we decided to visit we did not book (evening meal) an we just managed to get a table - would recommend booking in advance. It was women's day when we ate there and my girlfriend was given a free drink and flower as soon as we were seated - great... More
