“Best curry everrr”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

We dined here after the restaurant was recommended to us, and we were not disappointed. Although the restaurant itself is quite modest, the food was excellent and the price was very reasonable, definitely one of the best curries I have ever had! Lots of locals seemed to be ordering their takeaways from here too which is a good sign. If you're in Windemere and you want some Indian food you should eat here!

“Tasty food, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We dined in Monsoons while visiting Bowness and were very impressed with the value and quality of our meal. We are vegetarians and the choice was great. We were the only diners in the restaurant, I think they are mainly used for takeaways, but the service was very good. The veg was fresh, the currys were very tasty, and the price was very reasonable.

“What a find!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

We were in Windermere for a long weekend and this was the best meal we had. We found the previous reviews and decided to go along. The decor is basic but spotless. The food was exceptional. While we were there a party from India on holiday came in to eat. There food arrived while we had our starter. The reaction from them confirmed we had made the right choice. The main course was well cooked, nan bread freshly made. You could taste how fresh the ingredients were. Other diners came and also local people for takeaway which they did say that this is their main trade. I would return again. The next morning at breakfast we recommended Monsoon to our hosts. They said they have been looking for a good curry for years!Look no more!Just give it a try and you will not be disappointed

“Brilliant take away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

This is a review for the take away service.
We couldn't find fault with anything! It is the first time we have used Monsoons but a few friends had commented that it is very good, so we decided to give it a try. I usually have two or three dishes that I stick to, but I decided to take a chance on something new so I ordered the Tandoori Special Chicken Tikka Dhansak. It was outstanding! along with that we had 2 portions of Onion bhajis, Chick Pea Pilau rice, Peshwari Naan and Vegetable curry side dish (big enough for my partners main meal) all for £21 which is a very competitive price for Bowness.. We got 2 free poppadoms, raita, mango chutney, mixed salad and onion salad. The food was delivered nice and hot. I would recommend Monsoons to anybody. definitely worth trying out.

I visit Monsoon regular and have never been disappointed, the food is tasty and the service is excellent. Mondays and Tuesdays are a must as there is a special offer the food is exactly the same as the rest of the week. I highly recommend.
