Food is consistently flavorful, hot, and served nicely. The wait staff is particularly friendly and helpful. Sometimes the food is served too fast where the app. and main dishes collide; but a word to server and that is cured. Excellent variety, overall a really good Chinese restaurant.

Moon palace dinner
This is the 2nd time we've dined at Moon Palace. The first was great. Had a lot of appetizers, pot stickers, egg rolls and Pork buns. All were delicious. Main courses included Kung Pao chicken and shrimp, General Tso's Chicken and Mongolian Beef. They were good too. This time we added some fried rice which was really tasteless. After everyone tasted it, it was left on the plate. Service was fine, though could be more personal. Still, the interior made up for the flaws in that we can easily take out-of-town guests who are not used to the area or Chicago. We will definitely return, though we are still working our way through the menu to find what we like.

Better quality food than some
Better quality food than some other options in Chinatown, esp. the eggplant and the twice-cooked pork. Also very good shu mei and pot stickers.

We have not been to "China Town" in many years, we were like tourists. Moon Palace was my pick and now I could not be more pleased. Not only was the food superior in every way but the staff treated us like royalty in a family way. I can't wait to return and try other dishes.

Great Chinese Food
Moon Palace is not a touristy place in China Town, but I believe it still remains the best restaurant there. The food and the service is always great.

A favorite in Chinatown!
I have looked for years for a Chinese restaurant in Chicago that serves rice cake dishes - stir fried. I finally found one in Moon Palace. They also have rice cake soup. These are my favorites at Moon Palace - and have not found them anywhere else in Chicago's Chinatown. We also love the ma po tofu. My family and I come to Chinatown and Moon Palace JUST for these dishes. The staff always remember us, what we like to order, and are SUPER nice every time.

We were attending a concert
We were attending a concert at the Arie Crown Theater at 8pm and figured we would allow an hour and a half to park, dine and then get to the concert and allow time to walk from the paring garage. I made reservations for 5:30 and we were done eating at 6:15. The food was great and the service was fast

Moon Palace Rocks
We really liked Moon Palace and will return soon since its a neighbourhood gem. This is a smaller more personal experience than some of the huge China Town restaurants and I think its therefore better at Moon Palace (great service, fresh food, more chilled out vibe inside, fair prices). This is classic old school chinese food - its does not get any better then this. Just near the China Town gateway arch and fire house - easy access from parking lot and also public transport (red line, water taxi, etc).

Chinese food you WANT to take home!
I've eaten Chinese food prepared in sixteen countries including China in Wuxi, Beijing, Shanghai, and TianJin. The food we got here was excellent. Service was acceptable but the food spoke strongest for this restaurant. Big portions, served steaming hot from the kitchen. Can't wait to visit Chicago again and return to this place for another memorable dinner.

Great food in Chinatown
The food that I had was very good. The restaurant is small but elegant, and the staff attentive. I will definitely be going back there.....

The Peking duck is exceptional. We need to get a fix often. Also, yummy dumplings.

Our group of 8-10 has eaten there several times. They have some of the best Chinese dishes in the city. Crispy duck and Moo Shoo anything are excellent! Ambiance is what you expect or slightly better than most others in this category. We keep coming back for the food hoping the service will be better, but it too is consistent, which we rate as only fair.

Quiet Business Dinner
I took two colleagues to this quaint spot in Chinatown. I love their food and their tastes are on-point and not over-coated with sauce. If you are looking for a quiet dinner date or small group to have dinner, this is the place.
