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.
