Delicious

Popped in here on the off chance a few weeks ago and I have to say we had a fantastic meal. Lovely service, bustling but relaxing atmosphere and really lovely food. We will definitely be back.

We have been here twice now and the service, food and staff were fantastic. I wasn't sure what to order so the manager came over and spent time explaining what was what and had excellent knowledge of the menu. Food was superb and overall one of the better places we have eaten in Ocean Road. Definitely recommend.

We were recommended this restaurant and were hopeful of a satisfying curry. The truth was very disappointing!! We asked for our food to be madras hot which was not! We asked for our garlic nan to be soft and it was not! We asked for one of the dishes to be as dry as possible with little oil and it... More

Everything just seemed a little off this evening. We arrived to find a smart restaurant and a table was found for us promptly. Unfortunately though our drinks order was incorrect and then when they did arrive the soft drinks were more the temperature I'd expect from a cup of tea. The food arrived and was what would best be described... More

The choice of restaurants on Ocean Road are numerous and all of a good standard. What sets Monsoon apart is the stunning standard of the food. Your standard curry houses tend to be the one pot balti style cooking and that is available here however!!!! The Speciality dishes are truly stunning wonderfully aromatic and extremely tasty. The side dishes are... More

visited Monsoon last night for a take away after reading many reviews. I was not disappointed .From entering the restaurantbeing met by a lovely gentleman to my order being handed over I could not complain and knew it would only get better. Think I have found my favorite Indian and cant wait to return for a sit down meal. Thankyou.

We had a lovely mid week meal in a relaxed setting and friendly service. Just the right amount of time between courses unlike some restaurants where they rush you. We will be visiting again :)

We held a charity fundraising night at Monsoon for our daughters trip to Morocco with World Challenge the staff could not have been any more accommodating and attentive. The task of getting 36 starters & main courses out timely was met with ease and the food was fantastic. Can't thank Shogarth and his team enough - great night !

This is a lovely clean comfortable restaurant with pleasant staff. The food is always presented nicely and great value for money. Only let down is the ice cream is tasteless!! I recommend the tandoori chicken. Half a chicken beautifully marinated and tastes delicious . Will definitely be returning .
