Had a lovely meal sat just gone with great service and food full of spices and flavours we all need when we visit a Indian restaurant. The only downside of our visit was they are closing down and moving to birchington and opening a take away only establishment. Will have to try as it's the same owners and chef.

Great price for great food. Happily caters for Vegans and those with dietary restrictions. Quick delivery with their Takeaway service. Great steaks (according to my step dad) in the restaurant bit too.

Thoroughly enjoyable relaxing evening ...food was excellent and varied to accommodate some of the friends who were vegetarian/vegan...as there was such a large group there were enough staff so nobody was kept waiting and they were very attentive and pleasant.

Had dinner delivered to us and the taste and quality were excellent. Chicken pathia was perfectly balanced with just the right amount of heat. Lamb tikka kebab was great too. Will be ordering from Monsoon again, soon!

Had a take away delivered to our campsite. Came in reasonable time. Food was hot and the chicken was very tender. Had tandoori chicken which had lots of meat on it and Garlic chilli chicken, very good. Peshawari naan/chill naan good. We ordered 2 poppadoms and pickles which I think is what bumped the price up a lot as it... More

I ordered a very simple meal to be delivered last week, it arrived promptly however the meal itself was inedible, and I'm not fussy, to start the poppadums were stale and the main course of chicken tikka masala was almost certainly made up with tomato soup, it looked like thick tomato soup and tasted like it too, no other flavor...

We're very sorry to hear that you had received your meal which is not up to the usual standard of Monsoon which all of our other customers receive. We can assure you that not a very small amount of tomato puree goes into the Chicken Tikka Massala so we are slightly confused as to how you could taste this only... More

Monsoon Indian Restaurant is a little venue with a big heart. Just a stone's throw away from the sights and sounds of Margate's seaside resort, this local restaurant is the perfect haven for hungry diners seeking a satisfying meal in relaxing surroundings.

We present ourselves with a sophisticated space and private booths available for intimate dining. There's ample comfy leather furnishings perfect for unwinding with a refreshing drink from behind the bar, and a tray of fresh papadums ready for nibbling. Our menu grants diners a wealth of choice. Whether a hardcore curry fan or a complete novice, there is a dish for everyone to enjoy. With meals being cooked to order, our chefs are more than happy to create the perfectly palatable meal for individual tastes. There's a great range of Indian classics up for grabs; such as Korma, Balti, and Tandoori Dishes, but it's the house speciality menu that steals the show here at Monsoon. Diners hoping to try something new won't be disappointed with delights like Hunza Chicken flavoured with lemon juice, Special Fish Bhuna, and the Achar Gosht, Meat Tikka prepared in a pickle and herb sauce. Vegetarians are well looked after too, with a range of hearty dishes and side orders on the bill.

The chefs at Monsoon can cook up a light lunch or an indulgent evening meal, and cater for all occasions. So if it's a romantic meal for two or a special evening out with family, this delightful curry house welcomes all to enjoy fantastic food and drink.
