Slightly understaffed and there needs to be more descriptions on the menu but the food and ambience are great. The wait staff can obviously describe what the food is but it would be great to see a few more words. That said though, great "fusion". Very cosy place, as most places tend to be at Battery Point. I had asparagus... More

Best Indian food I have had in the USA. We reached at 1015 pm but had a take out order ready and lucky. Asked if we could eat there instead and they happily accommodated us. Best RAS MALAI ever. Made me miss India.

I have been coming to Monsoon for a few years and it has always been my, and my family's, favorite place to go for Indian food. Our favorites have always been the samosa chaat and tikka masala (chicken or paneer). Three years ago I would have given Monsoon 5 stars. However, around 2 years ago we began to notice that... More

Fantastic flavors from all the foods we have tried but the Butter Chicken is my favorite. Great balance of flavors and your choice of heat! A must try for those that love great food!

My husband and I have not been particularly fans of Indian food previously, but my sister was here visiting and has previously lived in India, so we wanted to treat here. We were the ones who really got the treat! The food was delicious and plentiful. We ordered the Naan bread basket which has several flavors of the bread. It... More

My husband and I discovered this restaurant on our most recent trip to Hampton. The ambiance is modern Indian and very chic. They have taken care of even the little details in design and decor. High quality. The menu is vast, and the food is outrageously delicious, served in modern style dinnerware with beautifully artisan plating of food. The sampler... More

Have eaten here a few times and always impressed with food quality and presentation. Samosas are great, nana fresh and tasty and the main dishes always nice. They try and have a atmosphere here, but with a bar area with TVs on wall it loses the Indian "touch", making it less "date night" like.

I went here with some of my friends and co-workers and it takes awhile to get the service but, when you get the food it is well worth the wait. It happened to me on two other occasions so I don't think that this is an isolated incident. They just have a small staff but they are very nice and... More

I've been eating at Monsoon for a few years on a (somewhat) regular basis.Last week I saw one of my former servers from Monsoon. He informed me that he and other employees had been FIRED for keeping tips that were given to them by their customers! He stated that the tips aren't pooled and go DIRECTLY to the OWNER.He also...

The ambience is good. Very sophisticated. Food is good but the food they serve are not the same as far as names of the dishes. They serve biriyani but it doesn't taste like biriyani. It should be named as "mixed rice vegetables with Lamb/chicken/goat". Biriyani has a very specific taste and it's nowhere near. Lassii ( yogurt based drink) is... More
