“It's ok”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Went here with colleagues on a business trip on the recommendation from the hotel. We were the only diners so we got 110% attention . The food was ok/ average . I asked for extra chilli as my dish was quite tame and was presented with a plate of fresh green chillies and some vey hot paste to add.
Good portions and generous sides, pickles etc.
Nice friendly helpfull staff , but meal was no more than nice average.

Friendly, courteous staff, faultless fresh aromatic delicious food, not greasy ( which is my pet hate) . My second visit- really can't think of a negative.

“Fresh!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This restaurant unfortunately suffers from a bad story attached to previous owners from a very long time ago.
The food was fresh and tasteful and didn't merge into one flavour of just curry.
The service was very good. Attentive but not overbearing.
The decor was relaxing.
A free tipple at the end (though they could've asked for a preference as neither of us like brandy, so one got wasted).
I don't give 5 dots willy nilly.
A definite re-visit.

“Exceptional meal”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

My first visit to the Monsoon and experienced a very fine,delicious, quality meal. The final price including a bottle wine was very reasonable. I was able to use my 'Tastecard' too. The staff were exceptionally friendly. Five star service and would highly recommend Monsoon.

“highly recommended”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Another visit to the Monsoon and as usual it did not let us down on the quality and quantity of food, really freindly staff and once again the owner took the time to come and have a chat with us at the table.
As usual we were offered the complimentary drink after the meal.
Five star service again
