We stopped for a late dinner after attending a Sunday showing of Priscilla Queen of the Desert stage show. The young server wasn't too sure about providing recommendations because he was fairly new but went with main road familiar dishes. These were delicious and the coconut rice the best I have ever had ever, anywhere! The service was prompt and attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Monsoon Poon in Auckland NZ is near the marina. We really enjoyed the shaking beef and the side dish of eggplant was unbelievably good. Our server did a good job. We would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys Asian food. Prices are about average for NZ.

I dine at this restaurant on a semi-regular basis & it never disappoints. The menu has a good selection of rice, salad & noodle dishes, and decent vegetarian options. There's an extensive starter menu too which makes for easy tapas style dining in a group. The wait staff are always friendly. The decor is cultural and colourful, and the low lighting gives the restaurant an intimate & relaxed vibe. But the highlight of this place is the cocktails! They have an incredible drinks menu & you can't go wrong with any of their cocktails.

My husband and I went to dinner here our first night in Auckland and loved it. Started with spring rolls and then the main course of Singapore noodles and my husband a fried rice dish with chicken shrimp and vegetables. Had enough leftover to have for another meal. Only complaint was the rice was dry and not sticky. Good service.
Would recommend. Loved that Monsoon Poon is on a quiet street .

Saturday night and we were lucky there was still a table. The service was extremely efficient even though the restaurant was at capacity. The food and drinks all came without a long wait and was enjoyed by everyone in my group. The greatest thing about the food is the variety of different Asian cultures which means there is something for everybody. One down side of the meal was the seats at our table. They were pretty much wooden benches which I had never see before in a restaurant. I noticed about a 50/50 split in terms of chairs and benches across the restaurant. Overall the service,food and atmosphere was great and wish to visit again.
