If you go for sushi don't expect high quality. The rolls are your best option but are not true Maki quality. The Miso soup is not traditional Miso but more of a veggi soup with miso thrown in. The prices for Happy Hour Bar rolls is great though. But I make better rolls at home. The tempura has a... read more

We live in Phoenix and whenever we visit Flagstaff, our first meal is at Monsoons.The food is fresh, the sake bombs are great and the staff is ALWAYS friendly, helpful and professional. You won't regret a visit here.

Friendly / helpful staff and cold beers! They have TV's at the bar so we were able to enjoy sushi rolls and cold beer while watching football!

Their food is not so good but their bar is busy and they are located right next to the city square so great people watching.

Second time here and the food is good. Nice place in downtown. However seats seem limited on Friday night and service a little slow. But if you are a little patient, the food will be worth it. FYI, not the best Chinese food, but not the worst. I will go a third time.

Pretty good Sushi/Sashimi - not Japanese quality, but good enough. Goes great with a cold draft from the bar. Staff are very nice. Great location in the direct center of town.

Nice, very RED and modern themed "atmosphered" resto in old town Flag. We usually order a sashimi combo when eating at Japanese resto. At Monsoon, we discovered their sashimi combo is a bit pricy for the fairly small pieces of fish they serve/include (only three types of fish served). So, don't order this dish for two people: at $20 it... More

The heaters were a welcome touch on a cool evening. We split the crab puffs and some sort of chicken with noodles. The crab puffs came with a spicy sauce and were very good. The chicken was good but better after adding the extra sauce from the crab puffs.

Excellent choice for choosing when in the historic downtown area. Staff was prompt and courteous. Dinner size servings were very generous and meant take home for the next day.
