Respond to Review of Monsoon India
Review: I've eaten here 3 times: regular dinner, Sunday brunch buffet, and Friday night dinner buffet, and have greatly enjoyed my meal each time. For our last night on Maui, we invited a group of over a dozen friends and family: one other vegan, one vegetarian, and the rest omnivore. Everyone was raving about the food and the atmosphere. One of the omnivores said he enjoyed the vegan food more than the meat side of the buffet. BTW, the vegetarian side of the buffet at the Friday night dinner was all vegan except for the naan bread which had dairy in it. (The Sunday brunch buffet had at least 3 or 4 vegan choices.) The korma, made in many Indian restaurants with dairy, was vegan and made with conconut. Every item was delicious, including the korma, channa masala, and vegetable dishes. Buffet items are not labelled as to what is vegan, but the friendly knowledgeable staff will point out which dishes are. The atmosphere is awesome, particularly if you get there just before sunset, and watch the sunset over the ocean thru the west side which is open to the outdoors. The strings of small lights add to the festive atmosphere. Despite the place being more than half full, acoustics were good and we didn't have to shout to be heard. Plenty of restaurant parking in the designated area of the lot, all 3 times we were there. The only drawback I see is that the buffet price is double the buffet price back home in Maryland, but it is moderate by Kihei standards.
