Monsoon Poon is somewhere you can be sure about receiving the same quality food and service year after year. If you don't book you're likely to have to wait for a table any night of the week but they have a bar area to wait in and an extensive cocktail menu. The celebrity-signed plates on the wall might have been there more than a decade but whether you're craving noodles, a curry or something else you'll be more than satisfied with the size of the plate and how fast the food arrives.

Always a great, fun atmosphere at Monsoon Poon - been one of my favourite Wellington venues in terms of ambiance for a long time. Monsoon Poon is a great place to visit in groups - perfect for sharing and because it's low-key, there's no real worries about being a bit loud that probably would cause you to be frowned upon at other restaurants. My favourite - the shaking beef without fail...well recommended!

If you want ultimate service and food delivered to your table virtually delivered within minutes of ordering then Monsoon Poon is the place to go. The food too will never disappoint I have the Malayer Fish which is fabulous the meal sizes are fantastic along with the breads and sides you just wont be disappointed at all. Guarantee a great meal and service a must eat for all.

The place is vibrant and busy. A very popular restaurant. Service is alright.

You get lots of food with the banquet meals. So, no worries about going hungry. The food itself is average. I didn't think that it was very authentic. Some curries were just runny and really weird, eg. the red duck curry.

The food here is better than its counterpart in Auckland though. At least it was hot when it came out.

The mango lassi was really yummy though.

A good place for a gathering, but the large tables can be a bit of a squeeze when you have a larger group. Also, being bench style, it can be a little uncomfortable.

Went to Monsoon Poon last night - great place to go to, food is always good. Only downer is the wait time - you can't book but it's always worth the wait!

Most of the times I have been here I have really enjoyed the food. A couple times I was a bit let down but generally this is a good place to meet with the girls for dinner.
