A word from Monsoon: Asian Kitchen and Lounge
Monsoon, connoting seasonal weather changes across Asia, represents a wind of change in concept and menu for the Bohlsen family. It is the group’s first Asian restaurant and the sixth in its portfolio of leading Long Island restaurants. Monsoon bridges the gap between authentic Vietnamese, Chinese and Thai and what Long Islanders love most about modern Asian cuisine in a menu of exciting, explosively flavored food. The relaxed and hip setting of this 21st century restaurant makes use of all technology has to offer while presenting some of the oldest, and most tried and true, Asian dishes, brought the Bohlsen way, to Long Island.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The fire alarm went out for quite a while and the manager didn't bother to come over and say anything regarding that fact! Nor did he offer to buy a drink for the patrons at the bar. We then had dinner which was phenomenal, and our waitress Ashley was great! There were multiple people complaining about the way the fire alarm situation was handled- or should I say NOT handled!"

  • "Great food, service, and atmosphere. My only complaint is that I stated in my open table reservation that it was my fiances birthday and the message was somehow lost, this is very unlike a bohlson restaurant as they strive for perfection."

  • "Our waitress was awesome & the food was good. I tried a different cucumber drink - it was good but not my style so she brought me a different one."

  • "Atmosphere has that "cool NY" going on... The menu has interesting selections... The noise was very "happy hour" ... Can recommend the Brussels Sprouts side dish... To spend 5-star dollars the patron has a right to expect premium service and spectacular dishes ... The food we received was basically good, but not outstanding considering the prices charged ..."

  • "My husband and I went for date night and we were very happy with the level of service and food. I have a gluten intolerance and our server, Katherine, was very helpful. She was also very nice. We would definitely go back to Monsoon."

  • "Had heard really good things but overall was disappointed. We had early reservation on sat (745) so it was not a scene as I had been warned. Cocktails were good and I liked the choices. We liked appetizer sampler but aside from pork buns nothing stood out. We shared 3 main dishes and they all seemed to be in the same universal heavily salted sauce. Cod was the best of the entrees the other 2 one meat and one chicken tasted the same. Expensive and could be great fun location but food needs some attention."

  • "Went for my birthday. Food was good, I highly recommend the black cod. Edamame dumplings were okay, Buddakan has better ones. Vegetable dumplings and shrimp starter were yummy. Dessert options were eh. Service and staff were amazing and super friendly. Basically, its a long island version of Buddakan that has decent food but isn't as amazing."

  • "The restaurant is very beautiful inside and the staff was friendly and attentive. The food was really mediocre ; and given the price it is impossible to recommend. At half the price maybe ; but at these prices it is unacceptable. There are many smaller less dramatic settings where you eat much better.And ultimately it is about the food."

  • "The food is elegant and flavorful, WANT SUSHI!? Great idea, INDEED. There is a roll named "cowboy" something, it was phenomenal! Packed w/a kick & smokey flavors. This past visit was a dedicated time to try 1 of the main courses. This is what really kicked my taste buds in gear! Unique ingredients,hearty & a combo of flavors ur mouth will water from! Cocktails= Babylon Express, YES PLZ! ;) "SHAKY BEEF?"=melts in ur mouth good!! Servicers=friendly & helpful, 2X and both servers were gr8. I gave it 4 stars vs 5 only cuz of COST. WELL WORTH IT! BUT not a Place I would be able to come to as often as I'd like to. Lastly, there is a touch of SNOBBY-ISH TUDE in the area. Come dressed for the oscars you'll fit right in lol (just a caution) :)"

  • "Good food but the room we sat in was so loud that it made for a disappointing dining experience."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The appetizers and salads were really good. But the main courses were terrible. One sushi roll had to be returned. It was uneatable. The fish seemed old and smelled. Another salmon entree was also really bad. Again, the fish seemed old. Ie was very dry and had an unpleasant odor. The third entree was a pad Thai dish that was also subpar compared to other restaurants we have had it. The service was spotty at best. Water glasses went unfilled and the waitress would diss apes for long stretches at a time. I would not go back to this restaurant. "

  • "We arrived at Monsoon for our dinner reservation right on time. We were greeted by the hostess and noticed that the restaurant was not yet very crowded so we asked if we could hang at the bar for a couple of pre dinner drinks. Not a problem it was happy hour and the bar tender made my wife a Monsoon Signature Bloody Mary, she loved it. We were seated for dinner and were very happy with our friendly professional waitress. The dinner was a mix of sushi, sashimi, and rolls that were fresh melt in your mouth pieces of delicious fish. My son enjoyed his perfectly prepared skirt steak entree and octopus appetizer. The portions of food were also very generous. Two thumbs up!! Will be going back again. "

  • "I found Monsoon to have a great ambience but, the food wasn't that great. This spot definitely has a NYC feel and they charge NYC prices for drinks. Unfortunately, this spot in Babylon Village not NYC. I would go again, not for food but drinks and appetizers. The menu reminded me of PF changs. I would like to reiterate that the ambience is great but the food is just okay."

  • "I have been to Monsoon before and this time I brought my son with me because I had told him how great it was. The worst meal ever and 45 minutes to get a meal and we needed to ask for a server to give our order. The dumplings were cold; the pork fried rice tasted like it was seeped in pork broth and it had huge chunks of shredded pork; inedible. The main dishes were mediocre at best; the chicken with pineapple had 1 small piece of pineapple; I think. Then they said they would take off for the dumplings but they were included in the 2 year anniversary special so when I got the bill I forgot to question that. I could not wait to leave. I told them I would not return. It was not worth $90.00; not even close."

  • "Our table wasn't ready when we arrived although when we were led to it, there were plenty of open tables around it. I can only assume it was the changing of the guard (shift change), and I can appreciate that. Our waiter was wonderful! There when we needed him and silent when we didn't. The beers ordered were cold, glasses clean. The appetizer, a "pu-pu" platter of sorts, was delicious..peking duck, chicken lettuce wraps, dumplings, shrimp tempura and steak skewers. Actually, that alone could have been our dinner. We ordered the peking duck for 2 for dinner and were not disappointed in the slightest! But we were so full, that half of it had to come home, No dessert but the espresso was good, although a little more crema was expected."

  • "We've been to Monsoon many times. We have taken many of our friends there too. All loved it before. Week took relatives this time. We were disappointed this time. First and foremost, they changed the menu..They took 2 of our favorite items off. No more chicken wings, no more pancakes. Our waiter took our order and brought all of our sushi out to my sister in law and me all at once. When our husbands got there food after their apps, we had NOTHING to eat while they were eating their dinner. The waiter never went over the sauces on the table for any one. After dinner, I ordered a cup of coffee. It was warm. the prices are high. and we were NOT happy at all :("

  • "After a few minutes in Monsoon you'll forget you're in Babylon. Trendy like a NYC restaurant without the drive or LIRR trip! Food is fun and delicious - great place to share and get to try a lot of different things. The fried oreos are to die for and the dirty fortune cookies are a riot!"
