Fantastic Food, But Be Careful At Happy Hour

The food was absolutely as good as noted in multiple reviews here on Trip Advisor. We absolutely recommend any of the Tandoori dishes (which are serve "flambe" style) as well as the cauliflower florets (pick your level of spice on all items). We gave the food 10 out of 10. It's authentic... read more

If I was grading the food, I would give it five stars. For the service I would give one star. For the attitude of the staff, another 1 star. It is the same as Saffron, their sister restaurant in Virginia Beach In fact, when they opened Monsoon they brought some help over from Saffron. I guess I am spoiled. We... More

If you want good Indian food, come here. I'm addicted. It's more expensive and does not offer lunch buffet, but it's worth it!

After completing our planned tour in east of USA, from New York we reached back to Virginia on 23 May 2015. Our daughter took us to her favourite restaurant ‘Monsoon Bistro’. The restaurant is a modern Indian restaurant located at Hampton. The name of the restaurant charmed me. I saw an umbrella signifying protection against rain. This presumably justifies the... More

My husband and I visit this restaurant every month (it's one of our favorite places for dinner) and: -the food it's delicious (they are consistent and also, if you're a "spicy" person, ask for a 3 -will be more than perfect-) -the waiting time for the food it's fine -they provide a respectful and friendly service -you'll enjoy a competitive...

We had a great dinner here. The cauliflower appetizer was tremendous, if you like spicy food. Also realize that when they says "spicy", they mean it. Their #5, on a scale of 1-5, was as hot as I could stand it. I had the tandoori lamb and it was perfectly cooked. Everyone enjoyed their individual entrees as well. Located in... More

The restaurant has a nice upscale and modern ambience, the seating is comfortable and the lighting leans to the romantic. The food is not quite traditional and not quite fusion, but it is fresh, tasty, and well plated. Service can be slow, we had a dismal express lunch (>1.5 hour) experience and another that was better (45 min). Dinner service... More

The food is wonderful but I wouldn't recommended coming here if you are pressed for time. Lunch took nearly 2 hours (and we ordered their "express lunch").

Went here on a Saturday lunch date....and boy were we.........IMPRESSED! We got one of the lunch specials that grants one with a choice of soup OR a samosa, along with a main course. We opted to try the fried potatoes and spinach (I forgot what its called, but a pic can be found of it below). For our main meals,... More

We tried Monsoon tonight for the first time during Hampton's Restaurant week, and I am so glad we did. The atmosphere is relaxed but inviting, with a really cool water feature in the front. The wait staff was friendly and helped guide us through the menu as we aren't too familiar with Indian food. The food was great, and they... More
