Great vegs options

I went with a friend, and we tried some of the vegetarian options on the menu. We had the vegetable egg foo young, green beans with mushrooms and vegetable fried rice. The food was very tasty and plentiful, and they don't use MSG. I recommend this place for vegetarian and omnivores alike.

On an absolutely gorgeous day in Portland, walking lovely 23rd St.(with ALL it's eating options), appetites sharpened by all the fresh air, sunshine and exercise, we looked around us and said "how about that Chinese place over there?" and walked into August Moon. I'm sorry it gets such a bad rap. On a chilly, sunny fall day in the early... More

I should have known better than to try a place that was basically void of customers on a lovely summer evening with lots of people out and about. Upon entering,the place has a dingy feel, empty of but 2 or 3 customers at other tables. We were seated at a dirty table ! Service was terrible to absent. There was... More

We should have realized something was up since there was only one other party in there and all the other restaurants we passed were crowded..We ordered a pupu platter and could not eat anything on it except the shrimp because the rest was disgusting. The beef... More

Wife and I and a Friend just got in under the 3 P.M. lunch wire on a Wednesday and were "treated" to an indifferent, unfocused waitress who we literally had to drag into her role as someone connected to our food and beverage needs. Nonetheless my wife and I ended up with a pretty decent lunch consisting of a wonderful,... More

This place carries the Tang Ho Quality Award for the Chinese Catering Industry in America. No MSG. Just healthy cooking here. Located on 23rd in the Pearl district. The streetcar is your best bet for transportation.

No delivery fee for either of their locations and the prices aren't bad. It wasn't too greasy and they got it to our remote location in 45 minutes!
