I had had a negative experience here in 2013 so I had not been for a very long time. My daughter and I returned the other night for pho as we were craving it and did not want to drive into the city. We both had the beef pho, the broth was so good as was the entire bowl. We... More

Monsoon in Manchester is absolutely fababulous and never fails to disappoint. The owner Nick takes care of you the entire time and my go to favorite Calamari salad is fantastic.

Stopped for lunch - good iced Vietnamese coffee and ok dumplings - menu said shrimp and pork but I tasted none. The filling was solid and only warm. I'd return for the coffee but order something else.

Can't remember the name of it, but the soup with the pheasant eggs is very good. They bring bean sprouts, hot peppers and herbs to the table as well as a spices tray. Very nice workers too.

I love this place because of their elaborate Menu that delivers Vietnamese food with a touch of Thai, Chinese and the other regional influences. They have plenty of healthy options too. Their pho is really good and it's delivered with a plate of delicious herbs, sprouts and chilies. The only down side is the ambiance. They don't really have natural... More

Monsoon Vietnamese Bistro has been one of my favorite restaurants for years. The food is full of fresh and complex flavors, is uniquely satisfying and is consistently excellent. My husband and I have eaten in some excellent Vietnamese restaurants in Chicago, Seattle, Portland, and the Bay Area, and we consider Monsoon the best Vietnamese restaurant in the St. Louis area....

Great Vietnam food. Always clean and the owner Nick will adjust the spice and heat to your taste. Nick will do his best to make you feel at home. On a scale of 1-5 it should be a 6. This is a MUST.

We opted for their freshly made soups which the Vietnamese have perfected. They have several to choose from and the portion is large enough for two or to make it your main dish. The owner was there the day we visited and was very welcoming and helpful in our menu selections.

As I and my co-worker walked into this bistro, the first thing that hit me was the emptiness. The restaurant has a very nice decor, a good looking bar. The waiter was very nice and accommodate us to our needs. We started out with a calamari appetizer. The flavor was decent, however, the calamari was slightly over cooked, giving it... More

Met some friends for dinner at Monsoon last night and none of us had been there before. We decided to be adventurous and give Vietnamese food a try (we all enjoy Thai food, so what's to risk??). The atmosphere is great. Tables are pleasantly spaced apart. The music is subtle and pleasant. Decorations are sparse, but fitting. Our server explained... More
