THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Monsoon Cafe Restaurant Review

: This is Bali on the Third Street Promenade, with exotic masks on the bamboo walls, semi-private booths and lots of beach shack bar action. The extensive pan-Asian menu ranges from chicken pot stickers, Vietnamese spring rolls and Indian samosas for starters (plus sushi and sashimi, and items like “won ton tuna decker”), while entrées include Burmese beef curry, teriyaki salmon and kung pao chicken. The blues and (sometimes) salsa music continues upstairs in the lounge until 1 a.m. on weekends. Salsa and samba lessons are offered with a live band on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

Mind boggling ambiance, a great date destination, the food is delicious, great happy hour. I love this restaurant.
I do NOT recommend

I was a guest in the "Lounge" area where they have live bands and dancing on a Friday evening. I made previous arrangements with the manager to celebrate my birthday there. The promoter and bouncer created problems for my guests throughout the course of the evening and accused me of owing $150 for guests who had never arrived; and rather than admit fault, they prevaricated their story. The location is beautiful and the food was very delicious but I would not visit again because of those problems with the staff and management nor would I recommend this location to anybody else.
