Reviews

As usual we had a wonderful experience at Monsoon. This time was for my birthday. They kept the flowers my partner had brought in at lunch time for me to be presented with at dinner. They made the sauce a bit milder for me when I found it a bit too hot. The food, service and friendliness was again outstanding. They make you feel very special. And to top it off the presented us with a complimentary ice Cream parfait dessert with a birthday candle atop. Thank you for another great evening.

Extra Yummo food- the tika sliders a real hit, genuinely nice people to deal with, and great atmosphere! Onto a winner and will be back! Thank you for accommodating our 18month old son so well too! A great safe and expansive place for him to roam and explore outside- he loved watching the birds!

This place is hidden away in the mall in Cromwell, but a real delight! The owner was very welcoming and made great food suggestions even advising how best to eat our meal. The food was lovely and fresh, well presented and delicious. Highly recommend, you won't be disappointed!

Amazing experience. Everything was perfect! The service was spot on, the food was out of this world, and the atmosphere was lovely. This wasn't the first time I've been to Monsoon, but every time I go I am even more impressed. I am looking forward to my next visit and want wait to try more items off the menu! ❤️

We definitely recommend Monsoon Restaurant. It was a great find in Cromwell Mall and definitely worth a visit. We enjoyed the tasty food and the enchanting environment. We were well looked after by the attentive staff. Monsoon has great food which is beautifully presented by friendly staff. Well done!
Thanks again Tracey and Dave

Situated right in the Cromwell Mall the surroundings are probably not the most scenic but the warm welcome and interior soon make that fade. We had a table for four right in the widow, perfect for what first table is all about and hopefully we tempted more people in.
The menu is a fusion of Asian and Indian style foods and the dishes we chose were a blend of classics and new styles. Between the four of us we chose 4 starters including the very good Bhajji and tasted cashew nuts dishes. This was followed by three larger plates, two of which were from the Liquid Sunshine menu which highlights the fusion element.
Often when dining at an Indian restaurant we feel the food can taste the same of similar between dishes, this was not the case with each shining with its own flavor profile. We particularly loved the Palak Paneer and special prawn dish, both of which we had at medium heat for a bit of punch. They offer to vary the heat for the diners which is nice.
The roti was hot, flaky and cooked to order (not reheated) the rice fluffy and hot and pickles we chose really lovely.
Great meal, tried dishes we mightn't otherwise.
Will be back, nice touch with the stickers on cards for 10% off for next visit. Good work Monsoon Cromwell.

Delicious food with an interesting and varied menu that will please everyone. The mango lassi was the best I had ever tasted and was presented beautifully. (I got 2!) I also have to rave about their "melt-in-your-mouth" roti. You wouldn't think a bread could be described like that until you taste one of their fresh, hot, tender and delicious roti! We are always offered another one half way through our meal and we can't say no! When it arrives, fresh and steaming, it's worth burning your fingers a little to rip it apart and dip it in your curry to enjoy as fresh as possible. Trust me! I could go on forever, but I better not. Go see for yourself. Don't miss out on this spectacular gem in Cromwell mall. (And try the mango lassi) ❤️

Yet again another fab dinner at Monsoon. Thanks guys!

Extremely tasty food served in good portions. Lovely grazing through some of the lighter dishes before indulging in the liquid sunshine (more main course) style curry based dishes. The only criticism I'd have is that if you like a bit of spice the kitchen seems hesitant to add

First time at Monsoon and we were very impressed! We arrived early but this wasn't a problem and we were made very welcome. Service was friendly, asking us where we came from and about our day - not intrusive, just polite chat. The food came quickly and was a taste sensation! We were offered the 'special' - a venison dish, which is not usually available for First Table diners. My husband had this and I had the Seafood Bonanza. Both dishes were medium heat curries, not too hot but very flavorsome. Definitely go back again.

Great food great service. Thoroughly recommended.

- dined at Monsoon Restaurant & Bar on

A awesome experience in any way. The first table discount enabled us to try entrée , main and desert. The entrées were not only mouth watering but also generously big. While selecting the mains we got personal recommendations for everyone. Our mains were served fast after and were from perfect quality. Really nice to eat good meat and nice seasoning. The kitchen also took care of an extra wish. Desert was still brilliant but could not possibly be better than the extremly good first two courses. Our favorite were the entrées that were outstanding.
We really enjoyed our time there and will definitely come again sometimes. Thank you.

Had a lovely evening dinning at Monsoon last night with my family. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was fantastic.
Having the 1st table discount we were able to have entrees and mains which enable us to try more of the mouth-watering options on the menu. Our young children had a lovely meal and time with the available activities.
Thanks for a lovely evening.
