“Excellent Food for take out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2008

This is a great take out restaurant cooked by the owner. This restaurant established about 20 years and the Chef is experienced for about 30 years of cooking. However it is not a romantic place to stay and eat with love one.

“Suburbia Hole in the Wall Makes for Memorable Eating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2008

Harsh lighting, harsher white decor. A few scattered two-seater tables line the wall. Pictures of a few dishes glare down at you from above the counter, faded and slightly cranky- like those paintings you see of late 19th century financiers.

The place has been open for at least 20 years, and it sure ain't because of the aesthetics. But there it remains.

Some of the best chinese I've ever had.

Like, memorably good, salivate-at-the-thought good food. I've been around the world, tasting as I go, and my thoughts still go back to this little mom & pop, primarily take-out place. Yes, it is a bit heavy on the american takeout "general tso" set, but it has never disappointed.

Definitely a standby for the locals for quick, delicious, cheap food.
The lunch specials are a steal and the portions (generally one or two types of meat, fried rice, and soup) are almost impossible to finish-though not for wont of trying! Dinner specials even moreso on the portions.

The flavors are always bright and exceptionally well balanced. I've taken school friends originally from Hangzhou and Shenzhen and both have been more than pleased with the quality and authenticity of the dishes they had. New Main Moon does a ortof pan-chinese menu, taking from all schools but not falling short in any execution (much like your other run-of-the-mill takeout places, with the exception that this place does each dish justice!)

I will admit I am a fan of the more america-based favorites such as their beef teriyaki (think red-braised beef more than soy-based west-coast "teriyaki hut" style) and the general tso's- which I still cannot find an equal to in complexity and pure deliciousness :D

Order out. Get stuffed. Keep your wallet stuffed. Become addicted.

Lunch: $4.00-7.00
Dinner: $7.00-15.00
