Went here with friends Saturday night - first time at this restaurant. A very pleasant interior and, very good staff. We had a variety of starters and main courses and all were of very good standard. A calm atmosphere with staff who didn't hurry us. In particular, the prices are very reasonable for the high standards set. We will definitely... More

I had lamb chops for starters which were so good. I also had Misti Hansh which was made to perfection. Great efficient service too. Superb value too. Well worth the visit

We ended up going here when the place we were going to go to couldn't fit us in, I am so glad we did. The food and service was delicious, the staff attentive. The rice and naan bread was outstanding.

Best Bhuna Chicken on Puri for starter and Sri Lankan Chicken that I have tasted. Excellent service and lovely toilets. I will be coming back again and can recommend.

Can't fault this little gem. Excellent food and quick service. I popped in whilst on business. The lamb chop to start was really tender, perfectly cooked. Followed by an excellent dick dish.

It was a bit of a mixed bag. The food was amazing and the head waiter (I think owner) was very attentive. The not so great bit was the initial service. A wheelchair user and a fully registered assistance dog that they knew was coming caused them issues. The head waiter sorted out really quickly. The other little niggle was... More

We are really very lucky in South Shields to have such a melting pot of curry houses along Ocean Road; admittedly some better than others but, competition is good in this respect. Last night my wife and I visited Monsoon, greeted with warmth and a friendly welcome. The place is somewhat contemporary in design but this does set it out... More

This is a restaurant I had been happy going to for a while but had a terrible experience with their take away service. Ordered my usual starter and main dish to collect and for some weird reason the guy wouldn't tell me the price over the phone because he had to work out some kind of 'discount'. I went along...

We decided to try the Monsoon as it was one of the few restaurants in Ocean Road that we had not eaten at. We certainly weren't disappointed. The quality of the food was very good indeed and the service was very attentive. This is definitely one to consider when looking for somewhere to eat in Ocean Road

Thank SimoJH

My name is Showkoth Choudhoury Owner of this lovely establishment, We get a lot of great reviews good ones and bad too. Its like any business, I gave up my day job and now am full hands on at the restaurant. The only way to enhance the customers experience is to over see everything. Thats what I have chosen to do. Since I took over I managed to get great reviews in the local press and even managed to get featured on BBC look north. I am always open to ideas on how to make my restaurant a better dinning experience and hope that you will all give me a chance to achieve my goals in being one of the best in what we do? Please try and look on the Web and research us and ask for me next time you come. If you call try and ask to see if I am free. I know that good food and good service is the best marketing tools and off course then there is the endorsement from the BBC comes in Handy. Good food good services at reasonable prices and a great environment, pleasant decor. So please call us.
