The food is good, Grandpa raves about the Egg Drop Soup and won't go anywhere else. Family oriented, value food.

I love this place. Everything you might want to have is available. It is buffet - so eat away. The only bad thing about "The Moon" is that it is often full and you either have to wait to get in - or get there a half an hour before you want lunch or dinner. Instead of noon - 11:30.... More

I've been eating here for 15+ years it's always good and hot. There are a lot of varieties of food. The dessert section like all Asian buffets, was ok.

It seems there are some things really good and some not so good at every Chinese buffet. The good thing here is they have a great selection so you can find plenty of good things for each person, even little kids.

My family loves Great Moon Buffet! We feel they are the best Chinese buffet in Maplewood. They have a very nice salad bar. They always have a good selection of fresh fruit. They offer some American food as well as Chinese dishes and they have an huge sushi bar. They serve some of my favorite dishes there. They are busy,... More

Just walk in to this friendly restaurant and you begin to see what a good business it is. Friendly staff, nice appointments and plenty of variety will tempt you to overeat.

My wife and I love (American) Chinese food...especially buffets. Great Moon is consistently very good. Of the many states where we have eaten Chinese food, this is still our favorite buffet.

Consistently good, tasty food. The dishes get refilled frequently and I always see staff cleaning. I'm not a buffet expert like some on Yelp but I do like the food here. I only get over here every 6 weeks or so when I get my haircut across the street but every time I've been here the food has been good.... More
