Have eaten here a few times and always impressed with food quality and presentation. Samosas are great, nana fresh and tasty and the main dishes always nice. They try and have a atmosphere here, but with a bar area with TVs on wall it loses the Indian "touch", making it less "date night" like.

I went here with some of my friends and co-workers and it takes awhile to get the service but, when you get the food it is well worth the wait. It happened to me on two other occasions so I don't think that this is an isolated incident. They just have a small staff but they are very nice and... More

I've been eating at Monsoon for a few years on a (somewhat) regular basis.Last week I saw one of my former servers from Monsoon. He informed me that he and other employees had been FIRED for keeping tips that were given to them by their customers! He stated that the tips aren't pooled and go DIRECTLY to the OWNER.He also...

The ambience is good. Very sophisticated. Food is good but the food they serve are not the same as far as names of the dishes. They serve biriyani but it doesn't taste like biriyani. It should be named as "mixed rice vegetables with Lamb/chicken/goat". Biriyani has a very specific taste and it's nowhere near. Lassii ( yogurt based drink) is... More

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 attended dinner one night with a grandson and son. Neither grandson nor I are big Indian food fans, but son is. The food was great ! clearly prepared to order. My son likes spicy, I do not. Each dish met the requested degree of spice. Good service, many beers including some indian ones.

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.
