We all at Monsoon are delighted with lovely write up by Stephen McMulllin and Team Reach
Restaurant Review: A Shower of Praise for Stillorgan's Monsoon,
It’s been a long time since we had a staff night out, so when it was finally safe to do so we made sure to choose very carefully.
To anyone living in the Stillorgan area, Monsoon is well known as the go-to place for best Indian food
The first thing any of us noticed on entering Monsoon was not the decor (which is fab, by the way) but the aroma. Wonderful, spicy scents drift around the dining area, whetting the appetite and promising tasty treats ahead.
Manager Arun greeted us warmly and made sure our group of 10 was seated comfortably in the small but well laid out dining area.
Menus in hand, we set about deciding what to eat, and it was a challenge! I was torn between at least half a dozen dishes, ultimately opting for the Chicken Jalfrezi. As a large group, there was a wide range of preferences, so between chicken, lamb and vegetarian dishes we ended up with a good sampling from across the menu.
Before the mains arrived, we were treated to a selection of delicious starters, including the Tellicherry Pepper Chicken, Ajwaini Jheenga (marinated prawns), Kumar’s Aloo Tikki Chat (spiced potato dumplings) and Colaba Seekh (spiced lamb skewer) – a personal favourite. Honestly, we could have stopped at the starters and I would have been delighted.
When the mains arrived, there were ‘ooh’s and ‘aah’s around the table as each new dish was presented, alongside generous portions of saffron rice and a selection of freshly baked breads.
