Far Eastern Flavors at Monsoon
Monsoon in Manama draws inspiration from multiple Asian cultures. The cuisine combines Thai, Japanese, Singaporean, and Vietnamese flavors, while the restaurant itself is part Balinese palace, part Thai temple. Sidle up at the sushi bar for fresh rolls and sashimi. There’s also an outdoor terrace and even a Japanese-style tatami seating area. For something hot, order a traditional dish like pad Thai, sweet-and-sour fish, five-spice duck, or crispy spring rolls. The restaurant also has a lengthy wine list and serves fresh fruit juices. The Ginger Cooler (carrot, orange, and pineapple juices and ginger) and the Green Island (cucumber, kiwi, melon, apple, and mint) are both refreshing choices.
