I'd read some of the reviews here, so I was looking forward to visiting. However, when we got there, the welcome could not have been less impressive. We were ignored. We waited to be shown to a table and then we waited some more. Eventually, we approached the counter, but the waiter kept his back turned to us and ostentatiously... More

Booked the Monsoon for a group of friends Christmas meal. There was 10 of us on a Friday evening. Restaurant was busy with another patrons and another large group as well, staff dealt with both parties well. Food was very nice, arrived hot and in good time at a Fair price. Will return again

The quality of food and service were excellent. Very friendly and made time to chat. Can honestly say this is the best Indian food we have ever had.

Food and drinks were great, waiters were friendly, the area is a bit shady but the restaurant was still clean.

If it tells you anything, I've been here 2 times in the last three nights. I'm an American and our Indian food is subpar. I always ask Samiya what is best, and after much discussion she produces the most amazing food.

Thank you for an amazing meal and service. Stayed in the area and unaware to go and stumbled over Monsoon. Food fab, especially the chicken jalfrazi. Our 7 year old found the tikka a little hot and she was offered lots of solutions to tame the burning sensation, and she opted for chocolate milk. Great host and hostess(father and daughter)....

5 out of 5 for hygiene by environmental health, for a start - unlike lots of other local indian restaurants. Easy to order, and they deliver. The food was a cut above any other Indian I've had in watford. The chicken seemed to have been properly marinated, rather than just dumped in the sauce at the last minute. Avoided the... More
