This time we tried the chicken with sweet potatoes and eggplant as well as the pho. And, we started with the dumplings (fantastic) and the crispy spring roll. As usual all was great, came fast and with a smile. GREAT Martinis, too.

This restaurant is always excellent - I have been here several times. My friend knows the owner (he was our server) and his parents are the chefs, so the food is authentic. Everything is wonderful - I always enjoy going back.

I had had a negative experience here in 2013 so I had not been for a very long time. My daughter and I returned the other night for pho as we were craving it and did not want to drive into the city. We both had the beef pho, the broth was so good as was the entire bowl. We... More

Monsoon in Manchester is absolutely fababulous and never fails to disappoint. The owner Nick takes care of you the entire time and my go to favorite Calamari salad is fantastic.

Stopped for lunch - good iced Vietnamese coffee and ok dumplings - menu said shrimp and pork but I tasted none. The filling was solid and only warm. I'd return for the coffee but order something else.

Can't remember the name of it, but the soup with the pheasant eggs is very good. They bring bean sprouts, hot peppers and herbs to the table as well as a spices tray. Very nice workers too.

I love this place because of their elaborate Menu that delivers Vietnamese food with a touch of Thai, Chinese and the other regional influences. They have plenty of healthy options too. Their pho is really good and it's delivered with a plate of delicious herbs, sprouts and chilies. The only down side is the ambiance. They don't really have natural... More

Monsoon Vietnamese Bistro has been one of my favorite restaurants for years. The food is full of fresh and complex flavors, is uniquely satisfying and is consistently excellent. My husband and I have eaten in some excellent Vietnamese restaurants in Chicago, Seattle, Portland, and the Bay Area, and we consider Monsoon the best Vietnamese restaurant in the St. Louis area....

Great Vietnam food. Always clean and the owner Nick will adjust the spice and heat to your taste. Nick will do his best to make you feel at home. On a scale of 1-5 it should be a 6. This is a MUST.
