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. At Monsoon we try to blend traditional Vietnamese cuisine with Pacific Northwest innovation. Join us for contemporary Vietnamese cuisine served in a modern, elegant setting. This is good, simple food.Monsoon East, located in Bellevue, Washington, is the second restaurant from our family. We first brought modern Vietnamese to Monsoon in Seattle back in 1999. We’re quite a bit larger than our older sibling and we feature a full bar, a private dining area and free lunch delivery.
