A charming oasis in the middle of Saigon

I love this restaurant. They serve food from Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Laos. They have a beautiful menu with lots of pictures, and the restaurant is a house set back from the street. Look for the sign near the sidewalk, as the house is set back in a way to make it easy to miss. This... read more

This is an outstanding restaurant. I visited several times at lunch and dinner. The menu is wide and extensive and covers Indo-China as a whole. The décor is quirky but it doesn't detract. The owners were present at the first lunch we had and were very helpful in giving advice and local knowledge. The Amok Trey from Cambodia was the... More

It was an amazing experience at Monsoon to taste food from 5 countries starting from Vietnam m,Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia. Try out the starter platter and ask for recommendation. Make sure you go early or try and make an early reservation if possible. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, clean and good service. Sometimes the servers English may not be very... More

Every appetiser was accompanied with an own sauce! As main course we went for a tai wok meal, which was aldo ok. Three beverages each and our bill was 30 USD. Very nice venue and... More

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 was organized per country and the... 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.
