We ate here twice during our 4 days in Stone Town. Our first meal in Zanzibar was lunch at Monsoon and it still goes down as one of our favorites. We all had the shrimp fajitas and they were delicious! Wonderful Zanzibari spices on the perfectly cooked (not overdone!) shrimp, a papaya/mango salsa, and cool creamy Guacamole were perfect. I also downed 5 delicious iced teas!
We went back for dinner and were saddened to see that the shrimp weren't on the dinner menu. I had the small lobster option (with tamarind sauce) and was pleasantly surprised. Perfectly cooked lobster with a delicious sauce and nice sides. My friend wasn't as pleased with her calamari, but I think she was just jealous of the delicious lobster!
I highly recommend a visit to Monsoon. Only drawbacks: cats and somewhat slow service (I had to flag down the server for my countless refills on iced tea--maybe he wasn't expecting me to be that thirsty, but it was darned hot and humid)!
