Our food was okay, but not great. The portions were generous, but not hot. My rice wasn't very tasty, but the s/s chicken and egg rolls were good. Our server was excellent - friendly and efficient. Despite our experience, it seems to be very popular with the locals -- always a good sign. I'd give it another try.

Passed through Antigonish on a road trip round Nova Scotia, we were staying close by the town and saw the Chinese restaurant was busy, always a good sign! We weren't disappointed, chose the special meal option, sweet and sour chicken balls, rice, veggies - delicious and plenty. Staff friendly and the meal was great value.

Stopped in while travelling Nova Scotia and tried to avoid franchise restaurants. Big portions that are all homemade. Had Mike's traditional burger and my wife ate the deep fried mashed potatoes. Both were excellent👌

The Moonlight Restaurant has been around for a long time, but the food has definitely changed over the years. I have eaten here many times, including yesterday and to put it bluntly, you have to know what to order here and how to order it, to not be disappointed. The pork or chicken chop suey is good. The crispy chicken... More

I've eaten here many times. The food is always good. The Mongolian dish is amazing, and most other things are just fine. If you're a hipster foodie and looking for gourmet dining...it's not the place for you. The wait staff is very good...they know their customers, bring the food out quickly, and always have been extremely friendly. The location is... More

The food was very good, as a vegan and actually having a few options is nice. I had the mushroom chop suey with steamed rice and it was delicious. My next trip my plan is to try the deep fried tofu with black bean sauce. My son enjoyed his food too, and could not finish it. The waitress was nice... More
