Service is slow and has been the last few times I've been in. Food is really good and the sizzling rice is a must try.

Great food at reasonable prices. I went there for the soup dumplings, which were great (although I would have preferred a little more soup and less filling). I will definitely come back.

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.

Food is always great and atmosphere is relaxed. Service is good and staff is welcoming but not overbearing.

The Moon Place was an authentic Chinese Restaurant. It was reasonable and accommodated a large group.

The service was not friendly. Waitress was terrible. My veggie roll was horrible. Will not go here again.

Food was OK. My cocktail was weak, and had little flavor. Service was the worst we ever had in Chicago or its suburbs.

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.

The service was great and very friendly, but the soup dumplings were average at best, and I also found a hair in my food.. that didn't belong to me.

Food was cold and we ordered soup which did not come until we reminded the waitress. So they then returned the entrees to the kitchen and served the soup. The entrees came later and were ice cold!

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.
