“VERY nice sushi place!!!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

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!

“Very good sushi!!”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

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 for a lunch box isn't bad either.

“Worst restaurant experience.”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

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. I ordered shrimp and vegetables tempura. There was 1 shrimp, 2 pieces of red pepper 1/4 inch thick, and 1 piece of zucchini. The rest of the plate was filled with breaded deep fried chicken nuggets ?? and a potato and pea croquette thing - neither of which I ordered - in other words, filler food. And the staff is a great example why you shouldn’t let plebs run your business. Walked in at 1:50pm and asked if they would still serve lunch - they said yes. The door says they serve lunch 11:30-2:30. Well, the staff actually expects to leave at 2:30pm on the dot whether or not you have finished eating or drinking the food you paid for. Got food at 2:15pm and at 2:20pm waitress dropped off the bill and said that they close at 2:30pm. She came back twice to say they were closed. When leaving I complained to the barman that the staff shouldn’t expect to leave at 2:30pm on the dot. He said to me, “You can talk all you want, no one is listening to you.” Wow. I would rather starve to death than ever go to August Moon again.

“Little Pricey”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

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

“Believe it or not Norristown has the BEST sushi restaurant around”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

Our daughter is a huge fan of sushi and kept saying she wanted some while home for a visit. I had heard rumors that August Moon served the best in the Philly suburbs so we decided to have dinner there before she went back to school. It was fabulous!!!! I am now stopping off on my way home from work for Take Out sushi. Try the Honey Moon Roll - it is delicious!
