I was there twice recently. Both times one of our party had sushi which was quite good. My son had udon soup and thoroughly enjoyed it, and just this week my daughter-in-law (she is Korean) had dduk pok-ki (a Korean dish and spicy hot), which is an appetizer but enough for a light meal; she loved it! There is a... More

August Moon gets a lot of hype. The renovations are beautiful. But the place still serves sub-par Korean & Japanese food. It's good, but not good enough to pay the higher prices. Our server was superb, such a happy, helpful lady. But she was not as attentive as she should have been. Is there only this one server for everyone?... More

This restaurant just renovated around 1 year ago. It has really nice sushi, but not that good Korean food though. Staffs are very friendly and helpful~ They have private party room as well, so it will be very suitable for a birthday party or any party!

Since re-opening, we've only ordered sushi and man, is it good! And prices aren't that bad either. My favorite rolls are the crunchy spicey tuna roll, the crunchy scallop roll and the asparagus tempura and avocado roll. When you can get a good quality sushi roll between $5-$8, that's really good. Sorry to say we haven't tried anything else. $10... More

Worst restaurant experience. Mediocre food and rude staff. Korean and Japanese. I figured they can’t screw up tempura, but I was wrong. The tempura was more like American breaded seafood, not the light and crispy tempura batter it should be. Plus they skimp on the expensive part of the meal, and add cheap stuff you didn’t order to the plate.... More

They have always had good Sushi @ a reasonable price. Since their remodel, the quality is still good but the prices increased for their fancy decor

Our daughter is a huge fan of sushi and kept saying she wanted some while home for a visit. I had heard rumors that August Moon served the best in the Philly suburbs so we decided to have dinner there before she went back to school. It was fabulous!!!! I am now stopping off on my way home from work... More

I had dinner here on Saturday night and after the recent renovation this summer 2011, this place is beautiful. The food is absolutely top notch, both the Korean dish and sushi, and the service is super attentive and I highly recommended this for lunch or dinner!

This was our first time at August Moon. It was difficult to pick a dinner selection given the huge variety on the menu. It will take us a long time to try everything that sounds great. We choose a stew for two which was served on a portable burner to keep the food hot. Fresh and delicious food good service... More
