This is an older restaurant, it's been there for awhile, I ordered from the lunch menu, the food wasn't to long in coming. The rice and chicken were good but the chow mein tasted a little burnt. Not sure if I would return to this restaurant.

Had been several years since ordering from this local Chinese restaurant. Ordered daily specials which surprised us with both quality & quantity.

The battered shrimp was almost all batter and the rice and chow mein was slimy and terrible. We liked the room and the service (waitress was very nice and understanding) but the food was bad.

I've been going there off and on for years,the food,although nothing to write home about is hot ,fresh and there is plenty of it,for that reason I seem to be drawn to it when I'm really hungry,if you are a chinese food fanatic you won't find anything terribly impressive but it's very consistent,not the worst,not the best but does hit...

My family and I have been dining at the New Moon for many years, we have always had very good service, on a timely basis and affordable prices. They are kid friendly and will assist with all your needs. Keep up the good job guys.

We got take out as we were staying around the corner. Not the best Chinese food I've ever had, but not the worst either. Just uninspired and a little overpriced for the taste and quality.

Quick service - awful food. from the tasteless egg rolls to the gooey chow mien, it was a disaster. Could be that this restaurant serves a different ethnic food that is new to me, but the flavours and textures of each part of the combo were not at all appealing.

The menu is nice and tidy. I tried the number 9 and it was a perfect meal for me. The waitress was nice and friendly. The place was tidy and comfortable. The portion and prices are very fair. I would go back again to try out more of their meals. I highly recommend this Chinese restaurant!
