The service is fantastic! I would return for the service alone. The food was fresh and perfectly seasoned. I had the Bali prawns. The vegetables were nice and crunchy. Chilli eggplant ... Too firm for my liking.

Enjoyable meal at Monsoon Poon (not sure about that name) however we ordered Indian dishes that should have had a bit more kick. The food was sweeter than it was spicy. Nan was excellent.

Walked in early one Friday afternoon. Ordered some naan, shaking beef, and soft shell crabs - all good - and the portion sizes were a bit more generous. Priced reasonably too.

I come to Monsoon Poon at least once a month. What blows me away is the consistency in quality of food, friendliness of staff and speed of delivery.
