About Monsoon East website: http://www.monsoonrestaurants.com/east/
We grew up in Saigon, where the cuisine was influenced not only by what was freshest every day, but by Chinese and European cooking traditions. Join us for contemporary Vietnamese cuisine served in a modern, elegant setting. Yes, the new Monsoon is gorgeous.
