With curry house competition so stiff along Ocean Road, it takes a great curry to stand out from the crowd. The meal from Monsoon didn't excel, I'm afraid. The atmosphere, interior and standard of decor is up there with the very best, however the food was overly watery onion-based and lacked any depth of flavour. Just fairly bland, unexciting and...

They had a wonderful menu, with a great selection. The quality of the food was great, the puris were so light they just melted in your mouth. The staff were attentive and polite and made the experience. They asked if you needed help with the menu and then if you didn't they were great at just melting into the background... More

First of all, I'd like to say that I've dined in the so called highest rated Indian restaurants in South Shieds. Without naming names, it's obvious that many of their reviews and ratings are fake and way over the top in praise. Avoid them! Monsoon is an excellent restaurant with great service and a wide variety of unusual dishes. My... More

We agreed, and what a great choice we made. Didn't have to wait all that long to order, once all of our party arrived and our... More

What a gem, the evening at the Monsoon was terrific from the staff to the food. The service was fast and friendly, and the food was wonderful. We would recommend this Indian restaurant to everyone. A real big plus, NOT expensive.
