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

Popped in on the spur of the moment. Service was a bit slow and disorganised but couldn't fault the food :).

Being a local to South Shields, we have pretty much tried the most of the Indian Restaurants along Ocean Road, but this is one of our firm favourites! You will tend to find the further you venture along Ocean Road away from the Town Centre the quieter the restaurants tend to be, and whilst this can also be an advantage,... More

Ocean Road and spoilt for choice, so my friend and I tried the Monsoon. The decor of the restaurant is minimalist, the service is Excellent, not pushy or hurried and the staff are friendly and tend to treat customers as old friends, so relaxed. The food was well presented and of good quality and the portion size was perfect. Overall... More

As usual a lovely welcome and the food amazing.!!! 💝 Thank you. Quite concerned that a table behind us was causing problems. Deliberately being awkward and complaining,swearing with children in his company saying blar blar, hope the polite lovely staff were ok. Obviously an idiot person. Go away, my dad is 81 and its fathers day. You're a bad example... More

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.
