“Worth it for a special night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Impressive decor and atmosphere, really feels fancy. Extensive menu and nice cocktails, all reasonably priced for a big city, but spendy for Vietnam. The appetizer platter is generous and a nice starter. Thousand flowers with garlic was interesting and the pork and lotus salad delicious.

“A lovely experience”
5 of 5 stars 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 stars 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.

“a little bit more expensive but very nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars 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.
