    The food was amazing. Full of flavour, fresh, hot and healthy servings. Great selection of whisky and creative cocktails. A visit from Goldie (the owner) and the birthday cheesecake on the house were nice touches. Location is easy to access and understated as part of the Holiday Inn. We will definitely become regulars at Monsoon!

    This place has immediately become a favourite for date night. The food is outstanding, so much care and effort put into everything from flavour to how dishes are displayed. The cocktail options are unique and delicious. Do not let that it’s attached to a hotel fool you, this restaurant is a 10/10 must stop.

    Amazing food and amazing service. Also gluten friendly which was a big plus. They mark gluten free right on their menu but most of it is. They have a shared fryer but the tandoor is celiac safe. The restaurant itself is beautiful with a great ambiance. Definitely going back.

    We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. On the booking app it was noted as a special occasion. When we arrived and were seated we were greeted by the owner, Goldie , who welcomed us and acknowledged that “someone” was celebrating a special birthday. From that moment, we were treated to a very special evening. The service and food were both outstanding. The best Indian cuisine we have had in Edmonton. We will definitely be back and highly recommend it.

    Mosoon's menu is a refreshing change from standard butter chicken fares you see in most Indian restaurants. I enjoyed the Kerala (south-west India) coconut based fish curry. Although the tandoori prawns I ordered were pricey ($28.00, considering they appetizers) ; they were tasty. Overall I enjoyed the tandoori flavoured dishes and the very friendly hosts, including the lady owner. Although somewhat pricey overall, I would recommend this place if someone wishes to try a bit more sophistication in Indian cooking. The host will tell you all about her items in her menu.

    We decided to try Monsoon based on good local reviews. Sadly, we were disappointed. While one of our meals was acceptable, but nothing special, the other seemed to have been sitting on a warming table for an extended time and was inedible. Perhaps this was due to the restaurant being very busy the night we were there. Service was adequate and the naan was good.

    Best Indian food and restaurant that I’ve been to in Edmonton so far. Every vegetarian food that we ordered turned out great and the chefs are really talented. Food servers were polite and welcoming as well. Through and through best experience; will be going to this restaurant often now :) Also, the place has great vibe for those special occasions.

    First time, won't be the last time. Great food, lots of choices and an excellent overall experience. Service was ok, not great, but not rushed. Cocktail menu had lots of variety and interesting flavours. Wine list is a little light. But you come for the food. Had Shrimp Pakora & Afghani Murg for appies (highly recommend the Murg, crazy good). For mains we had Smoked Butter Chicken and Lal Maas (Alberta Lamb), all good!

    Food was ok, at best. There were three tables with guests in the restaurant, not busy by any stretch. It took, a long time for our food to come out (at least an hour), and really not worth the wait. There are much better Indian joints in YEG, and especially once you factor in the high price point. None of the food was bad, but definitely not worth the hype.

    We have been here twice and will be back at least once a month. A complete meal could cost less than $35.00. We ordered too much at $80.00 for the two os us; we had another meal at home with the leftovers Sharon & Allan Kerr

    Amazing food & drinks! We came here for dinner, the service was friendly, but very slow. It was quite busy so it’s definitely understandable. We would love to come back and hope for better service. The handmade cocktails were incredible! So much flavour and care put into each beverage. The food was mouth watering - worth the wait for sure!
