Good vibe, attentive waiters, variety of choices, all good value. Great bar for those with time to linger before dining.

Very tasty curries in a no fuss atmosphere with quick service. Easy place to take a team for a feed and a buzzy vibe. So central and reasonably priced. Not great for anyone who has restricted dietary requirements though.

On a scale out of 20, we'd rate this 14/20 You do wonder about places like this. In a city the size of Auckland, and in a city fringe (by Auckland standards) setting, there are a number of restaurants of this quality. It has diners of the trendy type, it has families, and city workers. So that sets the scene... More

We walked in without a reservation and were seated very quickly. Service was pretty good and the food arrived in good time. We had 2 types of naan, butter chicken and a duck dish. Loved the naan and butter chicken but wasnt a fan of the duck but perhaps thats just my taste. Drink selections were pretty good as well.... More

Went to this restaurant for dinner and were seated very quickly without a reservation. Great Thai food and wine selection, service was excellent and so was the food.

We had a fun casual evening at Monsoon Poon. The restaurant does not take bookings but we had a larger group and they accommodated us well. We spent time at the bar and were shown to our table when we were ready. The menu was varied with Asian food from many countries. I do not like spicy food and there... More

The three of us really enjoyed our dishes. My wife had a vegetarian Thai red curry bowl, and our friend and I had Singapore noodles. All were excellent. There is a good selection of wine and beer, our server was careful to establish the level of spiciness we each wanted, and deceiver of our food to the table was astonishingly... More

I had a craving for dim sum so stopped in the cool looking Monsoon Poon looking for some. Turned out that they don't have dim sum but what they do have is a really great restaurant that has an Asian custom house feel with carved wood panels, Chinese lanterns, Buddha heads, etc. Our waitress was from the US - go...
