-warm welcom - menue has no photo, so it is adviced to ask for digital menue in ipad of restaurent - arrangments of tables too tight, so you can not find easily an intimate space - veg. Spring roll was nice but the shrimp one was salty and not tasty - prawn sushi was not fresh and there was ginger... More

After weeks of kebab so glad we went to Monsoon. Everything was wonderful - the decor, service, and food. The manager was especially helpful and let us pay with US$ as we were running out of rials, and gave us a lovely appetizer and dessert on the house. He even made sure we got into the taxi safely - never... More

Very nice Asian/fusion food, well prepared and presented. Drinks however were disappointing and seriously overpriced (140,000 + 24% for a small homemade lemonade) and I didn't see the price of drinks until the bill came. I know that ++ pricing is the norm in Iran, but I very much prefer to see the full price up-front

The drinks were fast to be served, although they are not the best. Atmosphere outdoors is very nice and you enjoy the place a lot. The main courses were very late to arrive, and overcooked so they had to reorder it again. I liked the shrimp salad and the grilled shrimp with noodles main course over there. Would go there...

It is such a shame for a prestigious restaurant which is well known for its Japanese food, to serve "special mixed sushi plate" with this amount and presentation! Just 18 pcs of hosomaki (small and less than bite sized rolls!). High prices with low quality and quantity food with the worst presentation. You've just imitated the "tiny portion" presentation type... More
