Average food that was over priced. Staff was friendly but not very attentive. They seemed busy eating behind the bar. Seemed more like a bar than Chinese restaurant.

We dropped in for sushi and cocktails. The restaurant had a very nice decor, was clean, we were greeted warmly, enjoyed our server's personality but she forgot a few requests we made. The sushi was very good, though not generous in portion size.

We honestly only ate there because it was the only restaurant in town where we could sit in late afternoon sun outdoors. We ate off the happy hour menu...lettuce wraps, spring rolls and broiled clams. All were OUTSTANDING and the service was excellent as well. I'd go back in a heartbeat...but we're just traveling through!

Go to Monsoons if you like to pay $7 for a 16oz beer; mediocre food; staff not helpful. I used to enjoy appetizers and beers on the patio. Won't ever go back-

Went here on an informal dinner date and this experience was doomed from the start. My partner's cocktail order was not what he ordered, our meals were served half an hour apart (I fully finished my meal while he watched), and the rice served with the veggie plate was dry and crunchy beyond belief. To date, the worst dining experience... More

One on the best places in Flagstaff! Monsoons has it all. Good food, great people working there, fun bar, nightlife atmosphere, big screens to watch sports, dancing (its a dance club too), excellent drinks, and a fun crowd. Even when I had an issue with the bill (my friend works at NAU - NAU staff get a 20% discount at... More

Their spring rolls were the best I've ever had - incredibly light and delicate. They were tasty too. I had a dragon roll and loved it. My teenager ordered the crispy Mongolian beef and wolfed it down. The sesame chicken was not a favorite. Having the bathrooms outdoors for construction was kinda weird.

After reading various reviews, we couldn't wait to try this place. Boy, were we surprised. The outdoor patio for al fresco dining/adult beverages/people watching is indeed as good/better as many reviewers have stated. However, 1st/foremost - we went for the promise of terrific Chinese food ... instead, we found their food to be no better than small town Chinese Buffet... More

One of our favorite happy hour stops...good prices and items to choose from on this menu and inexpensive drinks. Lots of different varieties of sushi to choose from on their regular menu. There's a good sized outside patio which is my favorite when the weather permits. Perfect for summer with the family. They also have tv's at the bar for... More
