Monsoon Poon in Wellington was a tad disappointing for us, but to be fair it could be put down to the fact it was Easter Sunday therefore hard to really gauge the real experience of a normal friday or saturday dining experience. I have had many great meal & night at the Poon's Auckland counterpart so it is a fair... More

We have twice visited Monsoon Poon whilst in Wellington and twice been delighted with the food and service. this place is busy and the atmosphere is wonderfully buzzing. It's hard to make a decision with so much tasty food on offer. Monsoon Poon is well worth a visit and is a delight to the taste buds!

Was a walk in and from the moment we entered the restaurant the service was outstanding. Was told it was a 30 minute wait for a table so sat at the bar & had a cocktail less than 5 mins later was told our table was ready. Food was delicious & atmosphere was great. Will definitely be back there was... More

Came on a Sunday night and it was packed!! Seated in the bar for about 20 minutes with drinks which we didn't mind at all! Gave us a chance to look over the menu and relax. Ordered off the cocktail menu and the craft beer selection. Such a good range of drinks! Had three of the starters to share, highly... More

Wow! The food is superb and the atmosphere is electric. This is a great dining experience. There's so much good food to choose from, repeat visits are well worth it. A little bit on the expensive side but great value. It is a tad noisy though, but don't let that put you off trying this restaurant - you will not... More

We have not visited this place in a while and were looking for a quick (reasonably early dinner). The place offers an interesting variety of Asian meals with a fair emphasis on malay and indian dishes. We decided to go for a Beef Rendang and a Butter Chicken meal. The Rendang was delicious. Very rich and filling. The butter chicken... More

Monsoon Poon is a trip to the East - it is a little bit of the Orient away from Oriental Bay. The atmosphere is great although the menu did need the help of my iPhone torch to read it! We were there with family including grandchildren and they were catered for too. The sticky pork belly was a stand out... More

Staff were very friendly here, the kitchen was very fast even though the place was very busy! Really enjoyed the fusion food. Loud music created a buzzing atmosphere, but was a little too loud to talk to others comfortably. Good experience!
