Attended Monsoon Poon with a group. Food was very good and had the Firecracker Chicken. Was warned about it being spicy and was the hottest meal I have eaten, but did not impact on the flavour.

My wife and I dropped by for dinner after Valentine's Day when it was packed. It was still very busy but we got in. We ordered with the Colonial and Second Dann cocktails (non-alcoholic), which were excellent. We had the Tandoori Lamb Cutlets and Vietnamese Spring Rolls for starters. Both were excellent but very different. For mains, we had Firecracker... More

Enjoyed the experience, from the colonial (lemon, lime, bitters, passion fruit) which was really nice, the combination starter dish & the tasty coconut rice, duck & egg noodle & curry - loved the variety, combination of spicy & tasty. Food was delicious. Parking is nearby. Only thing was - it was noisy & at times it was difficult to hear... More

I wouldn't say there was anything particularly bad about the food and drink, but I also can't say there was anything particularly good. Not a place I would go out of my way to eat at in most situations.

Great place to go with friends. Delicious food especially the firecracker chicken. Friendly staff but we had to wait for the table for almost an hour as it was very busy.

A good selection of local beers is offered at this busy restaurant, ideal for the pan-Asian cuisine offered. The food, cooked in a open kitchen, is very tasty and the large portions meant we rolled back slowly to our apartment. The Fire Cracker Chicken lives up its name - the sauce is VERY hot! Service was very good and attentive,... More

The food here was AMAZING as were the drinks and the wait staff. My girlfriend and I ate dinner here our first night in Auckland as it was right across the street from our hotel. We shared two wonderful dishes: lamb chops and Singapore noodles. Both were, in a word, AMAZING! In fact, my girlfriend commented that these were some... More

Not sure where to eat in Auckland, we wandered into Monsoon Poon, enticed by the smell. We discovered lots of great food options - including a comprehensive gluten-free menu. We ordered several dishes and shared them. The staff was efficient and helpful. The experience was so memorable, we visited the Monsoon Poon in Wellington later on our vacation.

One of our favorites. Always great cocktails at the bar to start with and although the menu doesn't change much the food is always fresh and plentiful. The atmosphere is always busy but the staff helpful and attentive.
