Are you kidding me???

We were so excited to try this restaurant, and drove down from Williamsburg for dinner for my daughter's birthday. It could have been a five star experience, but it wasn't. The food was very good, but the service was so bad it overshadowed the food. We had an older lady for our server. They... read more

We drove 25 miles on a recommendation to the Monsoon. It rivals specialty Indian restaurants you expect in New York, London or the Bay Area. We were very happy. Although we have a very competent Indian restaurant in Williamsburg, we'll be back.

This is a place I love to come back to when visiting the area. The staff is flawlessly good and the food is solidly good Indian food. One of the trouble I have with other Indian places is the level of heat in the food. I love vindaloo, but it is often either too spicy or not spicy enough depending... More

I was craving some Indian food and when my friend suggested this place, I was excited to go plus she loves it. Once there I ordered the tandoori chicken and the meat samosa. Because those are my favorite dishes, my expectations were a bit high. When I got my meal, my expectations weren't satisfied. Although my food wasn't very spicy,... More

Being from the UK my expectations for Indian food are probably a little higher than your average American (no offence intended). Monsoon did not disappoint. Noteworthy was the mango lassi which was excellent as was the lamb Korma. By far the best Korma I have had in the US. The tikka-masala was less good but still well above average. All... More

Enjoyed a yummy lunch there this week. Started with a soup of the day made of sweet corn and carrots, spiced up a notch and topped with green onions. The main course was a delicious Chicken Masala with naan and basmati rice. The creamy, spicy sauce (I went for middle of the road hot) was so good I soaked up... More

This is my second review of Monsoon. I wanted to do a second review for a couple of reasons. 1. We haven't been back to Monsoon until just a couple of weeks ago due to my husband's surgery. Once he recovered, Monsoon was the one and only place he wanted to go, so we got take out. I fell in... More

My son took me to Monsoon for lunch ... my first visit. I decided to try the lunch chicken curry. It was delicious ... very rich and just the right spice blend. The curry, basmati rice, and naan were the right amount for a satisfying lunch and were presented beautifully. I enjoyed the meal and can't wait to return.
