Our family of 3 recently ate dinner at Monsoon and enjoyed the atmosphere and service. The menu is extensive to cover the broad range of cuisines and it can be a challenge to decide - I suspect that your satisfaction with the meal will hinge on your choice (we had two really good meals and one that was a bit ordinary). We chose the tasting plate for entree which gave you a chance to try all the cuisines, in some ways it would have been better to then have chosen a main meal after the entree based on your preferences from the tasting plate.
The atmosphere in the restaurant is quiet, a relief after a few days in Saigon, and the service was friendly and warm.

Celebrating a birthday so wanted something a little smarter. Enjoyable meal in a nice setting, be careful on your map skills, get a taxi. Worth a visit.

We went to celebrate our anniversary and wanted a nice place ... the place is beautiful! The food is fantastic, we ordered some assorted entrees we got the chance to try everything and the quality and the flavors were incredible ... is a kind of food fused with flavors of Southeast Asia and in the menu that are separated by region for everyone knows where are what you eat ... it was all great and although the price is European, worth every penny you pay. Even the owner was firing people in the door, calling taxis to customers and asking what had seemed the food ... a perfect place!

I am sorry to say this was a bit of a disappointment. We had seen so any good reviews and walked for klms to find the place. It was our wedding anniversary and wanted something special. Over priced and realistically the food wasn't up to scratch. The staff weren't as welcoming as some that we met in other cafes and street stalls, don't order the squid - a bit overdone, sorry to say.

It must have been in another place, because at Monsoon Restaurant & Bar Saigon we do not have a Squid Dish on the menu :-)
