Good food, quick service and attentive staff. There was a big group in at the same time so was a bit noisy but other than that a great evening out.

This place was full of Friday night diners at 7pm. We were seated at the bar and put on a list for a table. Wait time approx 30 mins. Was mixed the most perfect Singapore Sling and munched on delish prawn crackers. The time flew, the room was a buzz of people, the decor dim, oriental and funky. Tables were changed over lightening fast and we were soon enjoying the most succulent chicken satay skewers and the best Singapore Noodles I have ever had!

Great service, great place. Have been a few times and always perfectly consistent!

Went to Monsoon Poon for mine and my boyfriends 2 year anniversary. We ordered the prawn crackers to start which came out WARM so yum. For main we ordered the coconut rice which was extremly worth it with a caramalised onion and garlic naan. He ordered the Yellow Chicken Curry, which had a really decent amount of chicken, with a sauce full of flavour! I ordered the Honey Soy salmon which was incredible! Best meal i have had out to date. Service was friendly and super speedy. Cant visit wellington without going here.

Loved this Asian Fusion meal! The ambiance was cool too. We had good service and really enjoyed the food. The green curry with prawns was delicious, as was the street noodles. The firecracker chicken was way too spicy for me, but my husband and friend ate the entire dish. Get the jasmine rice to go with the green curry. The signed kitchen plates on the wall were a fun touch.
