My family and I were looking forward to celebrating the new year at Cafe Monsoon this year, having been regulars and having good meals there in the past. Our table was booked for 8.00pm, as we arrived we were seated promptly and we all started our meal with popadoms and a round of drinks. We were provided with one tray... More

I booked a table here for my birthday at half past 6, when we arrived drinks were taken quickly, however the same can't be said for the rest of the evening. We kept asking to order, we kept getting told five minutes! The starters were fine but arrived after 45 minutes. The mains didn't arrive until half past 8! My... More

I'm very lucky as I live roughly in the middle between Cafe Monsoon and Shifnal Cottage which is another fantastic restaurant/take-away and whilst I can't choose between the actual food, I prefer to dine in at Cafe Monsoon whilst tend to get take-aways from Shifnal Cottage. I've been here a number of time and it has never disappointed. I came... More

When we arrived, we were seated pretty quickly, but then to get them to take our drink & food order, that took half an hour. We then waited another 45 minutes for the food to arrive, and then the food was bog standard, could have done a better job in a bedsit. Another hour later, our main course arrived. Tasteless,...

We had a fantastic meal at monsoon. The food was amazingly fresh, spicy and tasty. The service was great. If you wan fast good then it's not for you as the food is cooked from scratch and you can taste it. I shall most definitely be returning to try more of the menu.

Midweek was very quiet in the restaurant - but this did mean that the service could not be faulted. The staff and manager were attentive, polite and helpful. The food was excellent - it seemed very authentic - with a really different taste to each dish. The taste was also significantly better than the more mainstream type of curry house.... More
