Monsoon is our favorite Indian restaurant in the Palm Springs area. The lunch buffet is top quality and very reasonably priced. All items are fresh & tasty. The staff are friendly and helpful. It's a must do if you're going to do Indian.

We were their first customers on a quiet Sunday night. The place is small and a little dingy, it could do with a lick of paint. Service was prompt and friendly, we shared a samosa to start, my wife had the lamb rogan josh and I had the Chicken Tikka Marsala, both were very good. It's well off the beaten... More

A small, family-run restaurant in a strip mall. It's well worth the effort to find this little gem. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere when we dined there with another couple in 2015, and we went back again (two times) on our last visit in Palm Springs. Tasty food, reasonably priced. Order from the extensive menu or enjoy the lunch... More

A small restaurant within a small retail strip is a real gem for a quick lunch. The lunchtime buffet offers a generous selection of Indian flavors at a reasonable price. In addition to the buffet, fresh tandoori breads are brought to your table. We came away thinking that we had an exceptional meal for a reasonable price.

We arrived in Palm Springs on Xmas evening and most restaurants were closed. We happened to notice that Monsoon was open and lucked out completely. I had Saag chicken, in spinach sauce which was excellent. I'd go back if I'm ever in Palm Springs again!

I've eaten at Indian restaurants all over the U.S. and this was by far one of the dirtiest I've seen. The utensils were not clean, the floors were horrible. Clearly, it was popular as folks were waiting to get in, but I won't be back even if it is the "only" Indian restaurant in the valley.

Love this place - have enjoyed their take-out and ea-in dining for years - as have so many friends in Palm Springs. Wonderful selection of favorite Indian recipes. Located in a small Adobe style strip mall it just a few minutes form the downtown action of Palm Springs.
