Ever get the feeling that when you’ve got a head cold or the flu you’re going through the world’s last monsoon? If, so this Indian (and Bangladeshi and Nepalese) restaurant in Stockport’s Edgeley can help. The nutritionally minded chefs at work in the kitchen at Last Monsoon’s King Street West restaurant, close to the railway station, have an intimate knowledge both of traditional Asian subcontinental recipes, but also the healthiest modern cooking techniques and the medicinal properties of the spices and ingredients that go into each dish. This knowledge is ancient, but is now understood by modern medical science to have hit the bullseye when it comes to healthy – and even healing – eating. And it tastes divine, too!
Last Monsoon’s chefs have trawled the Asian subcontinent looking for the best recipes that India, Bangladesh, and Nepal have to offer. They bring these recipes to life in the kitchen of their King Street West restaurant, in the corner of Edgeley closest to Stockport’s railway station, using modern cooking techniques – less oil and so forth – and spice blends that have long been known to be curatives for a variety of ailments. With the antioxidant, antibacterial, metabolic stimulant, and even anti-carcinogenic properties of traditional Ayurvedic herbs and spices in mind, Last Monsoon has crafted a menu that is as healthy and healing as it is delicious.
Stockport’s vegetarian community flocks to Last Monsoon for their selection of non-meat dishes, most of which have a long history in Indian, Nepalese, and Bangladeshi culture.

Carnivores that get a kick from spice will drool over other of the chef’s recommendations such as the murghi jaflong, an east Bengali dish of chicken cooked with fresh green chillies and garlic, garnished with coriander and lime.
