Fodor's Review

A small, serene space decorated with simple woven hats hanging on a bright wall, Monsoon serves delicious, upscale Vietnamese food to happy locals on this tree-lined residential stretch of Capitol Hill. Favorites, blending Vietnamese and Pacific Northwest elements, include wild gulf prawns with lemongrass, catfish clay pot with fresh coconut juice and green onion, and lamb with fermented soybeans and sweet onions. Homemade ice creams include lychee and mango, but the restaurant's

most famous dessert is the coconut crème caramel. The wine cellar has nearly 250 varieties, including many French selections. The weekend brunch—which serves traditional Vietnamese offerings, dim sum, and "colonial" favorites like French toast and eggs en cocotte—is divine.

Like a Tasty Storm in your mouth, Monsoon serves up the hotness!

This place is amazing. Such a variety of dishes and flavors, both between the dishes and within each one as well. In each bite of a dish you can be assured to taste several different flavors from super fresh ingredients as well. If I lived closer I would eat there at least once a week.

Hip and Flavorful in Capitol Hill

Such a restaurant! We should all be so lucky to have a casual, elegant spot in our neighborhood. The preparation was exquisite and the wine list was both extensive and affordable. Sit outside if possible.

Incredible Flavors

The food is so good here! The atmosphere is nice and friendly service too. Would eat here every night, if I could.
