Dine a couple of evenings ago. The waiter recommended the beef dish, It was so so tender, just about melted in your mouth. Great evening with great service.

Based on recommendations from a local friend we met here for dinner and were pleased with the number of delicious dishes on the menu and drink options. Service was excellent and the food came out quite quickly. The eggplant dish was the best eggplant we had ever had!

.. especially late in the evening when everyone has had a few drinks. Monsoon Poon delivers on flavour with all their dishes. It is often busy but the wait at the bar with a cocktail can tide that over. My rule of thumb is to order for the table to share one more dish than the number of guests (eg... More

Only a block from the Hilton we gave this place a try on a Tuesday night. We were early, just prior to happy hour ending. The bar was packed and then the restaurant rapidly filled. Superb waitress and other staff provided fabulous service and recommendations. I had the the panang curry chicken and my wife had the red curry tofu... More

Its been a while since I have visited this establishment. I so wish it was a little closer as I would dine there more frequently. It was 7pm on a Saturday night when my colleague and I arrived. The Maitre D somehow found us an excellent table. The place was full. We were in full view of the kitchen and... More

We stopped for a late dinner after attending a Sunday showing of Priscilla Queen of the Desert stage show. The young server wasn't too sure about providing recommendations because he was fairly new but went with main road familiar dishes. These were delicious and the coconut rice the best I have ever had ever, anywhere! The service was prompt and... More

Monsoon Poon in Auckland NZ is near the marina. We really enjoyed the shaking beef and the side dish of eggplant was unbelievably good. Our server did a good job. We would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys Asian food. Prices are about average for NZ.

I dine at this restaurant on a semi-regular basis & it never disappoints. The menu has a good selection of rice, salad & noodle dishes, and decent vegetarian options. There's an extensive starter menu too which makes for easy tapas style dining in a group. The wait staff are always friendly. The decor is cultural and colourful, and the low... More

My husband and I went to dinner here our first night in Auckland and loved it. Started with spring rolls and then the main course of Singapore noodles and my husband a fried rice dish with chicken shrimp and vegetables. Had enough leftover to have for another meal. Only complaint was the rice was dry and not sticky. Good service.... More
