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

Excellent food. All 4 of us really enjoyed our meals. The dumpling appetizer is great. Good service, reasonable prices and pleasant decor in an unpretentious strip mall.

Monsoon is now serving alcohol! The long awaited and much anticipated liquor license is here, come in and enjoy a delicious lemongrass sea bass coupled woth a glass of Chardonnay. Or some Bo Luc Lac with a very smooth Saigon beer =]

My wife and I don't live in the St. Louis area, but whenever we visit St. Louis it's our custom to eat at Monsoon. We fell in love with Monsoon the very first time we ate there some three years ago and have been back many times since, mostly for lunch and a couple of times for dinner. The lunch... More

We've eaten her twice and loved the food both times. If you are looking for a hole in the wall pho place this is not it. It is contemporary and the menu is easy to navigate. Try the shaking beef or the spicy chicken. Salad rolls are delicious too. I will definitely try the crepes next time. the desserts looked... More

The best Vietnamese restaurant in the Saint Louis area. Worth the drive out from the city! Try the lychee martini.
