“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

This restaurant is really lovely, decorated very well. Our waiter was really friendly and assisted us with questions on the menu. Service was really good and there was no wait for the food The starters and main dishes were outstanding - the starters were delicious and so were the mains. everything about this place is outstanding and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it or go back. Would like to try the asian menu too.

“My favorite dish is served in this restaurant”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

Perfect menu is what this restaurant has. Sushi is logically good. You will get what you expect! Love it even after getting departed from the chain group it was in.

“One of the "very good"s in Tehran”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

The restaurant is located in Jordan Street on the 2nd floor and there is no parking outdoors. You should get to the restaurant after having a long distance on foot after finding a chance for parking more than 100 meters away.
I ordered beef mignon again (the day before I had had it in another restaurant) as a comparison. My wife ordered Singapore shrimp spaghetti, and the other friend, who is a chef herself, ordered (kind of) chicken. I tasted the spaghetti too, it was spicy and good. My mignon was the best among other main courses and I recommend to taste it once. In comparison to the mignon I had had in a high class restaurant the day before, this was a bit better.
They served us a small tray of sushi too with the companion of soya sauce and wasabi but I prefer to have suchi only in a restaurant in Tehran that is the best in Asian foods. You can find the restaurant's name in other reviews, as I prefer not to give the name in other restaurant's message board.
The women bathroom needs more care but in average the services and the atmosphere were pleasant.

“Chinese Food With A Hint Of Iranian Taste”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

If you want to try Chinese food, but you are worried the oriental cuisine might be too much for you, Monsoon is the place to go. You won’t feel you are dining in Beijing, but still you’ll be having Chinese.
I liked the spring rolls a lot, but the main dish was a bit on the salty side!
We went there for lunch and they still asked if had a reservation, but we somehow managed to get a table anyhow. I am not sure that would as easy if have dinner plans though.
I also liked the ambience and the service. But one thing I can’t get is why so expensive?! Chinese food – most dishes if not all – is known everywhere in the world for reasonable prices. If I am not mistaking Monsoon is the one the most expensive restaurants in Gandhi Shopping Center.
