Food was subpar. Every dish tasted about the same. Flavor was bland and did not taste fresh. Overpriced for what we got. Staff barely spoke and very unfriendly. I would never return.

Food can be very good. Some dishes not as good as others. My wife enjoys the Thai dishes. I enjoy the Mongolian beef. Was surprised last time I picked up take out. We had ordered soup with entrees and I was told it would be...extra for crunchy noodles for soup. Really!More

We occasionally visit or order from Moon Asian Bistro. It’s always been average. Tonight I picked up an online order. The order was wrong so check your slip carefully - the soups and chicken with broccoli were tasteless. Staff were unfriendly. It’s too bad, but...I won’t go back.More

At first I wasn't going to give an excellent rating because I was charged extra for white sauce when I purchased $40 worth of food. I hate to be nickled and dimed. But the food and sushi were very good. A little pricey but very...tasty.More

The waitress was extremely un friendly and rude. And angry. The chicken was like jerky. We had to ask for mustard, duck sauce, etc....all the staples. Then we got attitude from our waitress. There are way to many asian restuarants around for us to ever...return to this joint. Save yourself the trip.More

We stopped in late one night and found the staff to be attentive and welcoming. The restaurant is very clean and the atmosphere is very nice. Nice lighting and private seating. The food is delicious and doesn’t taste over salted or over sauced like a...lot of Asian restaurants. Our party ordered the sesame chicken, spring rolls, shrimp hibachi and sushi. It was all delicious. We will definitely be back.More

Is Canby a little expensive for some but my review is for lunch. The quantity served of my dish was equal to two to three meals! The flavor was absolutely excellent and so was the service. I am a definite repeat customer and highly recommend...this location!More

The family went there for dinner- including some fussy eaters, The menu was extensive and each membr of the party was able to get something they liked. The orders were plentiful and very tasty. The waitress was excellent and explained some ingredients that we were...not familiar with. There was enough for lunch the next day.More

The restaurant is okay and easy to get to off 15-501. I tried the chicken teriyaki and it was just ok. I thought it lacked enough teriyaki flavor and was a little bland compared to what I expected. Service was fine (I did takeout) and...overall I think it was an ok/ average experience. I may try it again but get something else - I wouldn't recommend the teriyaki chicken.More

This has been a go to weekly dinner location for a year and a half. The service is the worst ever and has affected our experience greatly. They have a new waitress from about 6-9 months ago that does not speak clearly, is slow and...very inattentive. I hope the owners realize the issue soon as we’ve taken it off our weekly schedule.More

I went for takeout on Chinese New Year, and was surprised there was no special décor, no special menu. ( I thought the décor of the restaurant was weird: plastic crabs and sea creatures above the sushi bar like a shore restaurant, crystal chandeliers in...one section, red lanterns in another, the whole place dark.) I ordered from the luncheon menu: hot/sour soup (gelatinous but full of mushrooms), hibachi chicken, shrimp/vegetables. All were overcooked, particularly the vegetables. The spring roll (an extra) was gummy and mostly crust. A plus: servings were generous.More

When Moon Asian opened in 2016, Chatham County was in need of a good Asian Fusion restaurant that wasn't the typical fast food/buffet mainly Chinese fare. Moon Asian fills that need nicely. In true fusion style there is a wide variety of offerings from a...host of Asian cultures including Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Cambodian etc. Ingredients are consistently fresh including items in the sushi bar. Dining atmosphere is comfortable and I have never felt rushed in my 20+ visits. Their lunch menu is fairly priced and offers wide choice of items with soup and egg roll. Dinner options (available for lunch too) are a bit pricey but are well prepared with generous portions. Service has always been good. Take-out is available but I have not used it yet. If I had to complain it would be consistency. The meals have never been bad but at times seemed "less good". This has been less of an issue over the past 6 months and would never stop me from eating at this needed addition to Chatham County dining.More

I've eaten at the Moon Asian Bistro about a half dozen times since they opened, mostly for lunch, but had dinner there one time. The food has always been good and most of the time, very good. I've tried several different dishes and all were...well prepared. I think the lunch menu is a really good value, but thought the dinner was a bit overpriced for what we got. I guess that isn't uncommon with some restaurants. This restaurant is a welcome addition to the 15/501 area, it's a place where you can enjoy a sit down Asian food meal.More

We tried for lunch for the first time. The Thai green curry chicken was very good. We also enjoyed the Pad See Ew with shrimp. Ordered spring rolls and sushi. The shrimp tempura was very tasty. We enjoyed lunch and will try for dinner.
