.. especially late in the evening when everyone has had a few drinks. Monsoon Poon delivers on flavour with all their dishes. It is often busy but the wait at the bar with a cocktail can tide that over. My rule of thumb is to order for the table to share one more dish than the number of guests (eg... More

Only a block from the Hilton we gave this place a try on a Tuesday night. We were early, just prior to happy hour ending. The bar was packed and then the restaurant rapidly filled. Superb waitress and other staff provided fabulous service and recommendations. I had the the panang curry chicken and my wife had the red curry tofu... More

Its been a while since I have visited this establishment. I so wish it was a little closer as I would dine there more frequently. It was 7pm on a Saturday night when my colleague and I arrived. The Maitre D somehow found us an excellent table. The place was full. We were in full view of the kitchen and... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More

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... More

Nice decor with atmosphere but very dark and hard to read to read menu-black printed on beige paper. Service good. We had beef, green curry prawns, butter chicken and spiced lamb. All were most acceptable. Entree we shared the won tons which were not your usual won tons they were more like parcels and the chicken nibbles. Good start. The... More

On a cold spring evening the place was cosy and warm. Very busy but that did not affect the service. The food was excellent as per usual.
