The design of this place is good, cozy and modern. We tried many dishes but the taste may not suite for us, not seasoning very well

We had no booking and arrived about 8pm. The restaurant was not full. At the door was one member of the team who welcomed us very friendly and offered us a choice of tables. The Restaurant looks good and I liked the decor. It looks very fresh. The menus offers food from the region and each country has its own... More

Walked from hotel to the restaurant. Monsoon, a restaurant in an old renovated building is in a side street with a lovely leafy forecourt. Stylish interiors with great old pieces of furniture along some modern stuff and great artwork ligning the walls ....very pleasant indeed. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Nicely presented. We shared sping rolls as starters.... More

We ate lunch here as part of a tour group and were given a set menu so I can't speak to the price of the food or the variety of offerings in the regular menu. We ate downstairs immediately by the door. It was very modern decor and clean. The fruit drinks were refreshing. I'm not really a fan of... More

We're not sure why a couple of reviews suggested the food was overrated. The restaurant itself was bright but our request to turn the lights down over our table was quickly honored. Aside from initially bright lights and our first selection of wine not being available, everything else was A1. The Vietnamese sharing platter for 2 was 200,000VND ($~$12AUD) and... More

Five Asian food styles in one great trendy restaurant. I have been to many Asian restaurants throughout Asia, and Monsoon has definitely been able to capture the fresh delicious flavours with their extensive menu for each country. My favourite dishes are the grilled beef, fish amok, mango salad and the Pad Thai, though for a variety of flavors the platters... More

After reserving a table for four, six weeks in advance, we were seated at a picnic table situated between the bathrooms and a kids play area. Several other four-tops were available both upstairs and down, but when we politely asked if we could move, we were told they were all reserved. Needless to say, they remained empty throughout our two-hour... More
