Large choice of all SEA food on extensive menu, accessible for PwD

Living in Yangon, I'm sometimes go to monsoon to enjoy a south east asia diversity of dishes. The food is good and with good value. The ambiance of the restaurant is a bit outstanding but fine. The staff is not very professional but very friendly and nice.

Enjoyed a wonderful meal here, the menu was extensive with a wide range of Burmese, Thai and Vietnamese options available. The staff were helpful and friendly, the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. Portion sizes were if anything, on the larger size, we both had starters that could have been shared but then we would have missed out on culinary delight.... More

We stopped by Monsoon Restaurant for lunch while wandering the streets of Yangon and stayed for several hours! The staff were incredibly helpful and attentive (probably the best restaurant staff during our trip to Myanmar!) and there was no lack of choice on the menu. Options include Vietnamese, Thai and Western (as well as local options). The restaurant seemed popular... More

My partner and I travelled in Asia for a month, and this restaurant in Yangon stood out to us as being of a particularly high standard. The staff were very friendly, the place was clean, and the food & drinks were great. I would definitely go here again, should I end up in Yangon in the future!

Lovely food with a large selection and big portions. The restaurant smelled a bit musty but otherwise was great.

We had a sample of the local cuisine and it was stunning. My particular favorite was the Butterfish Curry. But everything else was outstanding. This was a great introduction to the local food.

Located in downtown Yangon this restaurant was a real find. We dined there twice on two consecutive evenings. On the second evening I had the best meal of my whole trip The menu is very extensive - covers a range of specialities from across South East Asia - the menu is divided up per country rather than meal type but...

I came here for lunch on a rainy afternoon. I was greeted by a waiter holding an umbrella for me as I made my way from the taxi to the restaurant. Interesting menu- I had a Burmese curry dish which was delicious- just the right amount of spice. Nice atmosphere too.

Went for lunch after a chaotic, hassle filled day and the laid back atmosphere, great drinks and good food were just what I needed. Excellent staff, and for the quality of the food- fantastic price.

We both got very sick from the food, and it wasn't even close to worth it. They should stick with a more limited menu- fewer items they can churn out with good quality. Revise pricing. There are exceptionally good restaurants in Yangoon for a lot less.
