We went to Monsoon Poon for lunch after reading about it on Trip Advisor. We thought it was very overrated and also overpriced. The New Zealand mussels were fresh, but the broth was not complex, tasting mainly of lime and was spicy. The duck goreng was greasy and cost $24 NZD. The non alcoholic juice cocktails were delicious. Lunch was... More

We love asian food, and i love that this place had a blend of south east asian fare on offer. The mixed plater was great to share - lots of variety and good value. We shared the Shaking Beef for main - it was AMAZING! Beautifully cooked beef that just melted in your mouth. The coconut rice was delicious also.... More

We've had an early diner there. The place is nice. Located in the center. The food was very good. My Bali prawns were delicious. The service was great and quick.

My partner and I were in Wellington for the weekend and wanted to try a thai restaurant there. We went to Monsoon Poon and were very happy with the decision. It was early on Friday evening and got a booth seat straightaway. My partner is vegetarian and he loved the tofu dish. It was full of flavour and he ate... More

Came here with a group of 9 and they seated us very quickly even without a reservation on a Saturday night (don't recommend not booking though). Music was cool, food was small/light and made for sharing but still very tasty. Not a cheap night out for dinner which is what we were looking for but it was fun. Glad we... More

We visited here with my family (4 of us) after reading the reviews. We shared 2 starters - vegetable spring rolls which were a little bland but the chicken was delicious. We then each had a main, I had the delicious yellow curry, and the family shared various stirfried options. We then had dessert cocktails to finish off. They had... More
