“A lovely experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

An outstanding menu which is well presented. We had my one year old grandchild with us & wonderfully there is a kiddi-corner with toys & books etc Staff played with the children & made for a really enjoyable evening. When your child is happy you can actually relax a little & enjoy the surroundings & the food.

“Not so good as expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went to Monsson after having read so good reviews on Tripadvisor, and were a bit disappointed. We really liked the venue, the staff and the service. But the food was not living up to what we expected. Some dishes were really good, on was excellent but the rest were just a mere OK.

Order the Vietnamese taster for an entree to share

Very classy restaurant near the backpackers hotels

“a little bit more expensive but very nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

This was one of the more high end places we ate at in the Vietnam, but the higher prices are reflected in the comfortable and classy atmosphere and delicious food. It was definitely worth paying a bit more for our last night in Saigon to skip out on the usual rushed dinner.

“Beautiful setting, delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

If you have read some of the other reviews you will have gathered that Monsoon is that little bit different, starting at the fountains and manicured lawn leading up to the gorgeous restaurant.

My husband and I discovered this place 5 days before heading home and made sure we visited a couple of times.

You step inside off the crazy HCM streets into a cool, calm and classy restaurant. We couldn't quite believe how quiet and tranquil it was!!!

The staff are extremely friendly and all the food we sampled was tremendous. Yes, more expensive than a budget restaurant but still only around 800,000 dong for starter plus main and a couple of drinks each - around £18.

A must, especially if you need that little bit if calm and relaxation in your day!
