Good place to chill, eat good Thai food and watch martial arts movies. I have been here a couple of times and really enjoy the food, wine , beer and the corny kickboxing movies. Just to relax

An Oasis in the CBD located near Downtown Car Park very convenient. The exterior reminds you of something from Indiana Jones Movie... rustic Mediterranean decorated infused with Asian styling. The Atmosphere as you enter through the doors are relaxed and welcoming... soft music in background and delights of the kitchen buzzing with mild aromas of spices filling up the room.... More

We ate here as a group of 10. Great atmosphere. Amazing menu selection. A bit of everything, thai, indian all sorts. I had Red Duck curry with pineaple , gosh it was hot! Like spicy hot. I was not aware how hot it was going to be which was a shame. The cocktails were really nice as well.

The food here is wonderful, the ambience is fun and festive but all a little too noisy if you're looking for a quiet spot for a romantic dinner. It's busy, loud, fun and fabulous.

Having been to a Monsoon Poon in Wellington, we knew what to expect. Really tasty food, reasonably priced, with a good kids menu as well. Ask for the Firecracker Chicken if you need to blow a few cobwebs off. Its Hot!!

Attended Monsoon Poon with a group. Food was very good and had the Firecracker Chicken. Was warned about it being spicy and was the hottest meal I have eaten, but did not impact on the flavour.

My wife and I dropped by for dinner after Valentine's Day when it was packed. It was still very busy but we got in. We ordered with the Colonial and Second Dann cocktails (non-alcoholic), which were excellent. We had the Tandoori Lamb Cutlets and Vietnamese Spring Rolls for starters. Both were excellent but very different. For mains, we had Firecracker... More

Enjoyed the experience, from the colonial (lemon, lime, bitters, passion fruit) which was really nice, the combination starter dish & the tasty coconut rice, duck & egg noodle & curry - loved the variety, combination of spicy & tasty. Food was delicious. Parking is nearby. Only thing was - it was noisy & at times it was difficult to hear... More

I wouldn't say there was anything particularly bad about the food and drink, but I also can't say there was anything particularly good. Not a place I would go out of my way to eat at in most situations.
