Visiting from out of town, finding a good place to have sushi is a pleasant surprise. Our server recommended some rolls for us. We settled on the Dead Catch. Very good. The Unagi negiri was very well done also. The spicy tuna had just the right amount of spice to it. We sat outside and there was a little switching... More

I stopped here for lunch on a very hot day. They had a partially shaded patio that was quite busy, but I chose to sit inside in order to cool off. I thought the interior looked very nice and I enjoyed the service and the food. I ordered a lunch size portion of Pad Thai and it was perfect.

Monsoons is a very comfortable environment with a very well trained service staff. We (two couples) had not seen each other for a number of years and our server was most appreciative of our desire to "catch up" Her attention to us was just right prior to our ordering dinner. Checking as need be and following up with water and... More

We've been here a few times. Food is always great, but the inside needs some work. All the booths have torn or missing fabric and reveal the cheap plywood used to make them underneath. Being that this is a downtown tourist hotspot you think they'd go a little bit further to make it appeal to the general community and not... More

Our bartender/server was great. She was on the ball with our drinks and she was very attentive. Our rolls were outstanding as well as our hot dishes we got sweet and sour chicken as well as some lettuce wraps. The rolls we ate were black Samurai and the dragon roll. What a great experience. Thanks Taylor H everything was great.... More

We visited this place after hearing a lot from friends. We love Chinese food but most of the Chinese restaurants disappoint because they are too bland for our Indian taste buds, have very few vegetarian options and/or smell of fish oil. Monsoon has good food, good staff and good ambience. The food is delicious and they have very good vegetarian... More

It was spring break and many restaurants were too busy. Due to road work, Monsoons was being overlooked. We both ordered Mongolian Beef, which turned out to be a great choice. Portions were quite large, and the sauce perfectly seasoned. We definitely will return next time we're in town.

Delicious lettuce wraps. Flavorful Mongolian Beef. Great service and prices. A little hard to find but worth it. Much nicer than the crowded noisy long wait time places in the center of town.

Friendly / helpful staff and cold beers! They have TV's at the bar so we were able to enjoy sushi rolls and cold beer while watching football!
