Good pho with lots of meat. Sticky rice and crispy dumplings were also good. Portions were a bit small for us but everything was flavorful overall.

The best thing about Monsoon is their food. It is consistently excellent. I go often. The service varies between good to excellent. If you are going on a weekend evening I suggest making a reservation.

What a treat. Vietnamese with a Rim flair. Our second visit. Server and service was excellent. We'll be back soon.

Went for lunch at this Vietnamese restaurant during Christmas week. The place was very crowded and very busy. Since it was our first time, we can’t say if they were understaffed that day or always. The poor waitress could not handle everyone, so we waited a long time before our order was taken. Three of the meals came out at... More

I would have given this restaurant five stars, but the service was terrible. I ducked in on a Wednesday afternoon for a quick bite and drink and was incredibly disappointed by the bartender's service. Despite there being only two of us at the bar and a table of four in the corner, he was inattentive, unfriendly, and managed to get... More

We came here for dinner during our recent trip to Seattle. Monsoon is one of our B&B hosts' favorite restaurants nearby, so of course we wanted to check it out. We arrived a bit early for our reservation, and had a happy hour drink while we waited for our table to be ready. We liked the small plates menu and... More

It's hard to admit.... But, I'm not really a big fan of Asian, Pan-Asian, or Asian-American cuisine. I've been luck enough to go to China twice and Japan once--so I've tried. Never been impressed....., 'til now. This is not just the best restaurant in an Asian tradition I've ever eaten in, but perhaps one of the dozen or so best... More

We were delighted with the excellent food and friendly service--nicely appointed dining room, too. Chic. They take the extra steps to serve food that is well about average in taste and presentation. Don't miss it!

We had a lamb dish and a prawn curry dish as well as a few appetizers that were all very good. Sitting up at the kitchen bar offers an interesting perspective to see all of the food coming out. It's definitely worth checking out, although not quite the value it was priced at for me.

It is a Vietnamese restaurant with touches of other Asian foods and plenty of modern influence. Each single dish was very well presented and simply delicious!
