Four of us had lunch and only one person really enjoyed their meal. The Chinese food was mediocre at best. All of their seafood is frozen so not local for sure. Chicken balls had solid meat inside but were greasy and had a funny flavour. Would not go back.

On our trip home from a wedding we stopped here for Chinese food. Our waitress was very fast, efficient and helpful, especially when a glass of orange juice got spilled. We ordered the Dinner for 6, and there were 7 of us. It was definitely enough food for all of us to try everything. I found the rice to be... More

This place has consistency as its greatest asset. The chinese food is the kind that seems to come from some cisco'ish reheat kinda deal. It's good, it's filling but there not winning any culinary awards anytime soon. The prices are decent, $10 gets you in and out with a Combo A, but as soon as you move into single dish... More

I ordered take-out, my food was cold. Probably the worst tasting chinese take-out I've ever had, wouldn't go back again.

Today at noon I called in to place a take-out order. The hostess placed me "on hold" (put phone on counter where I could hear the staff and patrons in the background). I waited for 5 minutes without hearing from anyone, hung up and placed another telephone call. I was calling from my workplace (under the wire to place my... More

The Moonlight is a small independently owned restaurant that serves both Chinese and Canadian cuisine. I wouldn't personally recommend the egg rolls, as they are not as traditional as most are accustomed to.. However, I have found the following to be exceptional! Hot and Sour Soup {mild, med or hot], General Tso chicken, Mongolian Chili beef, Cheeseburgers made to order,... More

I have been a customer of Moonlight for quite a few years and have vary frequently had a bad meal. I have got to know the senior staff over the years and have had good service. The only issue i have is the cleanest of the establishment. They need to hire a clening company to go do a major cleanup... More

I used to frequent the Moonlight during my days as a student at St.F.X. It served relatively good Chinese cuisine given the calibre of what is available in the region. I had not been there in years and thought to give it a try during my last visit to Antigonish. The food that came out was far worse than what... More
