We were out for a few drinks in highgate and looking to go for a curry. Seen decent reviews for here and as it was nearby decided to try. As it was on the meercat meals 2for1 we thought that a bonus. When we arrived...there were 4 people in the restaurant who left shortly afterwards. When ordering we were told we could only order traditional dishes if using meercat. Not good as we both had chosen other dishes. Doesn't make sense as the dishes were all similar prices anyway. It basically rules out 80% of the menu. It defeats the purpose of offering discounts to get people in then having unsatisfied customers as they won't return. We've tried loads of places on the meercat and when it's good we return and some of them we visit regularly as we eat out 4/5 nights a week. Needless to say we won't be returning. Pity as the food was ok even if it was lacking in atmosphere and they were rushing us bringing out mains when we hadn't even finished our poppadoms. Think they were looking to close early as it was dead.More

My wife and I came across this restaurant by default having booked into an Airbnb just around the corner. We’ve been on holiday here in the Uk for ten days and this is by far the best food we’ve had the pleasure of enjoying in...that time. All we can say is just give the place a go. Great value and brilliant staff.More

Fantastic restaurant. This unlicensed gem is guaranteed to please. All the food I've had here has been brilliant and the fact that you bring your own alcohol if required means that a lower than usual bill is always a welcome surprise. Friends of mine from...all over have enjoyed this restaurant including those from the curry mecca of Birmingham. It's unassuming charm keeps me coming back, in fact this review has made me hungry so i'm off to have some of their unrivalled Bhajis right now...More

I am so utterly disappointed with monsoon. Tonight we were hosting some friends (one of them vegetarian) and ordered in from monsoon. We were all digging into our meal when our vegetarian guest spat out a large piece of beef from her vegetable korma. There...were multiple pieces of meat in there. I am so utterly disgusted that monsoon would allow this to be handed to their customer. When calling to complain, the man on the phone asked 'how much beef?' - this is not a question that should have been asked. The rest of our meals were ruined as we had to cook for our upset guest. When we called to complain we were only offered a voucher for next time. Believe me monsoon I will not be returning. TERRIBLE.More
