“Terrible food not worth the money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

I decided to try the food at Golden Moon Restaurant. I paid $14.31 for a take out combination dinner that came with 1 shrimp, 1 won ton, 1 spring roll, a small won ton soup, a very small box of fried rice (nothing but rice no veggies - just plain rice) a small box of shrimp with cashews, a small vial of spicy mustard/no red cocktail sauce, 1 soy sauce packet and a fortune cookie. When I got in the car, I checked the bag and they forgot the fried rice so I had to return.
The food is bland and a rip off at &14.31. Very plain, tiny servings and not much effort is put into this food.
I won't return.........

“Expected 5 Star Food, Got 1 & 2 Star Junk Instead!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

After reading other reviews I expected really good food. ALAS, I got "Three Flavor Delicacy" with VERY SOGGY, OLD snap peas, mushrooms and brocolli for $12.25, and "Sweet & Sour Pork" with more than half the container filled with hard and undercooked onion and green pepper for $9.25, or the extremely oily and greasy "Chicken Chow Fun" for $8.50 and the exceptionally greasy "Spring Roll" and "Fried Wonton" needed to be put on paper towels before consuming. YUCK! I give up on decent "Chinese Food" in Grover Beach and I'll get it in LA or SF or make it myself! This was a meal for friends and I was embarassed and VERY DISAPPOINTED!

“Nothing to Look at from Outside, But Friendly and Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Found this place tucked away off Grand Avenue about 2 years ago, while we were in town, and
tried it. They are a local favorite, good friendly staff and food is really good, they have a pretty
diverse menu, good size portions and the overall taste and flavor is excellent. This is the type of
place that you will enjoy eating at, they take care of the customers, and you will want to go back
again.

“dependable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2010

Had a very good, very reasonably priced dinner here- tasted just the way it should.
Not fancy but decorated , cute, very nice staff, and free parking in a beach town ( !). Golden Moon is a real local favorite. Full of people but not crowded or noisy. This is well worth your money and you will be full when you leave. Enjoy it!
