“Ok Chinese for the Plateau”
Reviewed December 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

It has reasonably OK takeout food for the Plateau. It suffices when I don't feel like driving to Factoria, Lake Hills or ID for better Chinese options.

“Best Chinese on the Plateau”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Wonderful food that is freshly prepared MSG free. Light and airy ambiance. While there is little Chinese competition on the Plateau, August Moon puts the other to shame. If you are in the mood for Chinese. This is a great place to go to.

“Best Chinese food on the Sammamish Plateau”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Dining options on the Sammamish Plateau are limited. At the time of this writing TripAdvisor shows two restaurants, which is not quite right. But even so, ignoring fast food the real number is not greater than 12, of which several are Chinese or Asian cuisine. August Moon is nothing fancy, but is a basic and friendly family run operation. The decor is basic, but the environment is always clean. The food varies by dish, but is generally quite good. At the poorer end of the spectrum some of their sauces are too bland. The cashew chicken especially. Surprisingly the curry chicken too succumbs to this - being not as flavorful as a curry should be. But in general most dishes are quite tasty. Their Mongolian Beef is a winner, and the hot and sour soup is among my favorites. They do fine on the fried rice and noodle dishes, which are favs of my little ones. One unusual dish is their vegetarian dumplings... some sort of veggie filling (not even trying to be a meat substitute) surrounded by a flavorful green dumpling wrapper (not sure, spinach or barley green perhaps ?) - good stuff.

For a small fee, they also deliver to the local area which can be a lifesaver sometimes. Take-out of course is also available.

If on or near the Sammamish Plateau and in the mood for Chinese food, August Moon is worth a try.
