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

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!!!
