I have never had a meal served to me that when I put the food in my mouth there was no taste. Really unbelievable! Everyone at the table tasted the Vietnamese Ribs with Lemongrass and all had the same opinion. Another had the green curry and it tasted like dirty soapy dishwater and smelled so bad we had to ask...

I usually don't try out many different dishes and stick to the food that I like. I had the Thai yellow curry chicken with vegetables and steamed rice. Really nice. Just a little too much on the salty side. It seemed better in 2013 & 2014. But still good food. Also their veg spring rolls are very nice. Crispy and... More

Nothing traditional there, but the food is good and the staff speak good English. They offer a large variety of speciality for almost the entire southeast asia

Cannot see why the good reputation, frankly. Very average, unless I made the wrong choice...Their menus include local food, Thai, Vietnamese, Laotian, Cambodian, plus international classics, which is usually not a good sign in terms of quality. Won't come back and won't recommend it.

It was really ok. But from the other reviews I thought it would be better. You don't make any mistake if you go there but it won't be the best thing you ever walked in...

A group of 8 people living in Yangon went there. No one will come back. Firstly they took 20min to serve the drinks. We ordered few starters and one main dish each. The waiter asked if we wished to have the starters before the main dishes, and I confirmed (he took note of it). After 45min the food hadn't arrived... More

We were almost put off by some of the more negative reviews but both our guide and the Strand Hotel recommended it and overall we were happy with the choice. Staff very welcoming and wide selection of fresh juice and smoothies as well as wine and beer. We had had lunch with our guide in a local restaurant well away... More

Monsoon's staff is friendly, gracious and attentive. As part of a pre-set restaurant plan with a local travel agency, we had one dinner here - a large and underwhelmingly tasteless "traditional noodle soup." White tablecloths, "glowy" ambiance and high prices cater to a Western market. . . not why we traveled here.
