I'm not an expert in Vietnamese food, this place strikes me as more of a "fusion" of foods. I've had several dishes and liked all of them. Other reviewers are correct some of the menu is a bit expensive, but half of it is 10-12$ range. If it's your first time do try the Curry chicken. it's amazing mix of... More

We travel from IL to enjoy this restaurant for the food and service of the staff. We have tried many dishes and just love them all. Nice wine selection.

Love Monsoon. It's one of those places you crave. My favorites are the shaken beef, grilled chicken, dumplings, beef salad and the sea bass.

I consider myself to be a VERY patient person which I guess is why we waited 15 MINUTES at the front desk for someone to greet us last night, we were just standing there. We saw at least 5 waiters and not one acknowledged us standing there the entire time. They just kept walking by. There were clearly 4 tables... More

I *really* love the Tom Yum soup at Monsoon (though I know it's Thai, not Vietnamese). Large serving, just the right spice. They also have nice spring rolls too, though I like Mai Lee's better. Nice atmosphere, sort of contemporary. I think Monsoon is a little pricey compared with the other Vietnamese restaurants in the St. Louis area, but it's... More

We have eaten here 3 times and every time I have been disappointed. Most recently I ordered the Bun Tom (vermicelli with shrimp, lettuce, sprouts, cucumber, peanuts and lime sauce). The dish arrived without cucumber, peanuts or lime sauce! The beef in our other dish sure looked like chicken. Our Spring Roll appetizer was good, but the waitress did not... More

I will never return, I tipped the waiter who did not even refill my water glass 15% for lunch, when I looked at my bank account he had added extra money to the tip. It was only $2 more but still I think that is uncalled for. We had two bowls of soup, one order of spring rolls, and water... More

We recently dined here with another couple. It was an expensive night out in a small stip mall in the suburbs. We tried to order a medium priced bottle of wine, but they did not have the one that we selected at the bar - tried again - did not have the second either, and this was from their printed... More

I had lunch there with a friend and won't be back. The prices are a little on the high end for lunch and the quality of the food. The don't offer a fork and only chop sticks. The chicken was in such big chunks I couldn't fit into my mouth and a the waitress disappears so you can't ask for... More

This is an excellent restaurant with very pleasant wait staff and equally good food. The only thing this place lacks is the ambiance for the money you pay. We ordered two seafood dishes. One is the scallop curry which is my wife's favorite and the other dish was seafood with crispy noodles. Both the dishes were excellent, and so was... More
