I have been dining at Monsoon for several years and although the food and the service has, for the most part been quite good, it has been brought to my attention that the management has been withholding my usual 20% tips from the wait staff and that those tips are not even pooled to be later divided among them, but...

We have tried most of the dishes here and we have enjoyed them quite a bit. Our favorite is the Biryani but we also like the Tikka Masala. Quick service and lovely atmosphere.

I was hesitant to visit, because everywhere else we have tried from Norfolk to Newport News has sucked, but we gave it a shot. Boy, was it worth the gamble! My husband and I had grown accustomed to eating at a restaurant in Deutschland that was often visited by the Prime Minister of India ... We were definitely spoiled. After... More

I asked for spicy and they gave it too me. Nice atmosphere, good service. The cauliflower app was amazing, yum, yum. Menu had plenty of variety and appears they will actually give you the added spice you desire. Much more of an authentic eatery despite being in the middle of a shopping district.

We eat here frequently. They have 5 level of spice, which works for us. I get mild and my other half gets more spice. He really likes the white rice, but you can get brown. The bread is good. We usually get take out. The price is average and the service is very good if you are at the restaurant.

Pleasantly surprised by this restaurant and the service. A refreshing place considering most of the area is littered with very poor quality chain eateries. The Indian beer selection was good and the menu prices were very reasonable and drinks were cheaper than nearby Park Lane and any other restaurant in the Hampton Roads area. My wife and I will definitely... More

I confess to be a gastro-weenie. So, I was apprehensive when my wife took me to Monsoon, since I do not like spicy foods. Not knowing what to order, I simply asked one of the family owners to order for me... with spices being a one on a 1-10 scale. What a wonderful meal she concocted for me: Fried noodles... More
