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

Went to Monsoon recently for a business lunch, I truly love Vietnamese food a lot. I had their Pho, and it was only ok. There are too many good Vietnamese restaurants in town to return here. My business partners weren't very impressed either.

We have frequented Monsoon since they opened many years ago. Always great food, Fresh and service is great. Their Spring Rolls and Vermecelli dishes are fragrant and just the right amount of spice. This is a mid priced restaurant with a small bar. If you are looking for a happy hour bar, this is not the place. Usually have a... More
