Monsoon Cafe

$25 - $50 Top 10 Recommended Special Offer

Dining at the Monsoon Café is a relaxing, spiritual experience provided by a unique atmosphere and fresh food. Even before diners walk through the door they are hypnotized by a pair of soothing yet intriguing eyes that adorn the front of the restaurant. The restaurant itself looks like a two story Eastern temple high ceilings and dazzling lighting fixtures, with lots of gold trim adorning columns and walls alike. There is plenty of seating in an open courtyard, with plenty of shade for even the sunniest days. Night is an exciting time at the Monsoon Café, with Salsa lessons and performances on Wednesdays and Saturdays and DJ battles on Friday nights.

I really enjoyed every aspect of the restaurant. The building itself is really impressive and has a relaxing or romantic atmosphere. The food was great as well as the service. I would definitely return and recommend it.

Dinner at Moonsoon Cafe  

Great food, good price and really nice ambient.

All around Great!  

Dined here with a party of 7 on a Friday night w/ a resevation. location, atmosphere, food, service and prices are great! would recommend the seabass and sushi.. rest of the party had lamb and steak and were also pleased with their meal.. although we had ordered fried rice w/out eggs since my mom was fasting, it came with eggs in it.. when we pointed this out and asked for one w/out eggs, our server gladly obliged, apologized and comped the fried rice.. I thought that was nice.. we were too full to try desserts but all in all it was a good experience. too bad I wasn't there on a salsa night but will surely go back to experience that.
