Moon Palace Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
After trying a few "new" style Chinese restaurants in Chicago this was a real relief. Dim sum just like we liked it - good soup dumplings and a very generous serving of shrimp and scallops. Great prices in a typical Chinatown decor. Best Chinese we found in Chicago this trip.
Moon Palace was great for a group. We ordered everything family-style and they were willing to accommodate. We got 3 bottles of wine, a few starters, and 4-5 entrees between 7 people and ended up paying less than $35 a person. It was a great value and the food was good. I would definitely recommend the Moo Shu Pork and Sesame Beef.
Though we visit Chicago fairly frequently for family events, I had never been to Chinatown; my husband He told me to pick the restaurant, and after a quick scan of reviews I selected Moon Palace. It was off of the "main strip" and was not at all busy when we arrived. The service was prompt, friendly and helpful and the food was outstanding. The ambience was also more upscale and romantic than many of the other establishments appeared to be. Moon Palace is next to a firehouse and some firemen outside asked how our meal was: we told them it was "terrific" and they answered that it always is, they haven't met a disappointed person yet. You bet I'd go back.
We met out of town family for dinner. A few people had dietary restrictions. The restaurant was able to accommodate everyone and the food was delicious. Soup dumplings were good but contained very little soup. Spicy eggplant was delicious. Service was good even though the restaurant was packed.
Well, I know this is petty, but I noticed that they were giving a single rose to all of the mothers/ladies, but I did not get one from them when it was time to go. (I'm 57 yrs old) It may have been because they were so busy, but my feelings were a little hurt, I thought it to be a nice gesture on Mother's day.
Another thing, they did not tell us that we could have validated our parking, they asked us at the parking garage and the restaurant never mentioned it.
I still enjoyed the experience.
Moon Palace is one our favorite Chinese restaurants in Chicago. I've been there many times over the last couple of decades from their original space to the newer upgraded space. We keep going back because we know we'll have a good meal at a fair price. Service can be spotty depending on when you go but the staff is usually very friendly and helpful. This time a couple of our friwanted to share a soup and ordered a large size. Our server immediately told them that a small would be more than enough...not something one would typically experience at a Chinese restaurant.
I certainly recommend Moon Palace as a good place for your next Chinese meal.
We were a large party of cousins getting together during Christmas. We've been to Moon Palace before and the food is consistently great, staff is attentive, and wanting to please. Highest recommendation! Also validation of parking available, and on the red line.
