I ordered one of the most popular Korean foods (Bibimbab), but it didn't taste good. The owner of this restaurant is not a Korean, so the foods are not typical Korean style. I don't recommend this restaurant.

Decided to try this place on the suggestion of a friend while at Ikea and am happy I took the short drive to get there. The Pa Chun, Dumplings and Dukbokki were an excellent start to the meal. We had a bunch of people with us and decided to try a lot of different things all of which were delicious... More

August Moon is within walking distance of the Norristown Transportation Center. It has a small bar and small dining room. We had the hot pot which was warm and delicious-- perfect on a cold night. We took home a large container so for the price $40 we will get two meals out of it. Our server was attentive but there... More

My friend and I went here as I had been missing food I ate in Korea and had a delicious and authentic bibinbap. Felt like I was right back in Dongducheon. My friend had bulgogi and was very happy with that. The service was friendly and fast. overall a great meal experience.

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
