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 .

I sometimes wonder if the Monsoon suffers from being detached from the hub of the town centre, which would be a pity as the food and service are really good. Nice to see some heterodox offerings on the menu to satisfy the adventurous palate. The rice is superb, and although I'm not picky about some things I am when it... More

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...
