Great food/poor atmosphere

We had fabulous shrimp dishes! Unfortunately, the ceilings are quite high with industrial lighting giving a stark, cold feeling. After several visits we notice the bar is rarely used. Highly recommend the food!

I was very disappointed in the pho tai I had here tonight. The beef was not rare or even medium rare and was not tender and most important, did not taste nearly as good as the beef in the pho tai I had a couple of weeks ago at Pho Manchester just down the street. The beef tasted left over... More

I have been coming to Monsoon for over 5 years and I have to admit that does not get much better than this. The service and food have been consistent, the only problem I have is that aside from being so close to my office it is still a long ways from home, so I cannot say that I have... More

One of our most favorite restaurants. The food is amazing and the service is perfect. The only thing missing is a few more plants and some background music. That would complete it. We highly recommend it.

My family and I absolutely love Monsoon. To begin with, in order to offer true Vietnamese food, you have to have excellent knowledge about how to bring ingredients together to take the food from good to excellent and Monsoon's proprietors do just that. There is something for everyone. The menu offers a great variety and everything we have tried is... More

Have been here many times and decided to review. Just love this spot. Never super crowded and service is excellent and fast!! Shrimp and beef spring rolls are tremendous. A must. For dinner my fav is the grilled chicken and fried egg served with rice, lettuce, cucumber, and mama qs soy sauce. Such a fresh meal without the guilt.

I am a huge fan of seared rice noodles. Delicious! Very good quality food. I enjoy the curry, wok seared noodles, pho, and Thai tea. Great customer service. Fast orders to go! Highly recommended!

I had been there few times & quite nice as well as busy place. Many peoples prefer this establishment, who serves through their own style & way. It can meet anyone's taste & satisfaction if they have idea on menu. Specially noodles, spicy beef, various soups, fried rice with real taste are Perfect. No reason to ignore the chance of... More

This is a small restaurant in a strip mall, but don't let that turn you off. The place doesn't have much ambiance, but the owners are friendly and they have a good staff. The reason you go there is the food. The fish is well cooked and wonderful. I love the crepe, vegetarian style. The sauce is phenomenal.

My friends and I laugh that just the thought of Monsoon Bistro's chicken or scallop curry dishes makes our mouth water. We try to eat their at least every other week. Their Vietnamese curry dishes are unlike the more common Indian or Thai curries. Monsoon curries are SO GOOD!! They are creamier and delectable with a slow explosion of wonderful... More
