Monsoon – Vegan Options in Colombo

Monsoon is a South-East Asian restaurant that serves authentic dishes from Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam & Malaysia.

The six of us enjoyed dinner on a Sunday evening at Monsoon, Park Street Mews. We made a reservation twenty minutes before arriving and when we got there the restaurant was almost empty. There was plenty of seating both inside and out but it got busier throughout the evening.  The restaurant is quite spacious, tastefully decorated with subtle lighting.

We ordered a selection of several dishes, as my husband and I are both vegans we went for vegan options. The menu doesn’t specify which ones are vegan but you need to select the vegetarian dishes and confirm with the waiter, that the dishes are vegan. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and well aware of what vegan means.

The dishes came fast from the open kitchen. We ended up ordering tofu, rice cakes with vegetables in coconut curry, rice with vegetables, rice-paper spring rolls and the sliced potatoes. All the dishes were tasty but quite disappointed with the potatoes as it was cold and bland and the spring rolls were tasteless.

For dessert, we ordered the lemongrass sorbet but a few minutes later the waiter confirmed that it wasn’t vegan and we ended up with sago pudding in coconut milk instead. The dessert was rich but delicious.

It’s definitely a lovely place to celebrate a special occasion with friends or family or have a relaxing night out.  The service was fast and the staff were very helpful and attentive.
