The food tasted nice, although, was not fine dining standards. Theatre was little to no air-conditioning so the temperature was uncomfortable.
Table service was hit and miss...one person was great, the other made it clear that they had very little knowledge of menu and service etiquette. I do not mind paying good money for great food, however, the food did not equal or surpass the price paid for it! To serve a small ice-cream cone for a $65 per person meal was insulting. Go around the corner to the Saigon Vietnamese restaurant for authentic food at a reasonable price.
$70 for a bottle of wine!!! Really???

Vegan food is delicious however at the same price as meat option is likely not the best value for money.
The lady boy cocktail by the glass is delicious however the jug just tastes like lemonade and didn’t have the body and velvety feel that the glass has.
Vegan desert was rhubarb and ginger sorbet- could have been served in a cone like the other diners received.

High quality food. Not as good as the last time I visited however. Better dietary catering previously. Likely due to Christmas load. Cocktails good. Service high. But became somewhat laboured and fake throughout the service. The atmosphere could do with more ambience. Recommended.

Main course was really disappointing, I have been here a couple of times and everything is usually great, but last night was no where near it. Just seemed like everything was slapped together with cheap meat. Disappointed.

Sunday lunch at the end of a 5 day break away from home. Food, service and ambience were all very good, highlight being the slow roasted pulled pork dish … fabulous. The Tassie oysters were also great. Of the five restaurants visited during our holiday, 3 being in Ballarat, Moon & Mountain was my 3rd favourite but wife disagrees and says it was “the best”!

Service was great, venue and the space were beautiful. The food was a let down unfortunately, we were very excited to try moon and mountain since recently moving to Ballarat.
The menu reads very well and the presentation is great but it fell short when it came to flavour. The sticky rice with duck had not even the slightest hint of flavour of duck, the butter chicken was very bland and lacking any of the robust flavours one would expect from a curry (even that kind of curry)
We were also told the ceviche was kingfish when choosing the banquet which made us choose the larger one. When it came out it was snapper which felt like there was some miscommunication between front and back of house or some more training needed.
The sticky pork with the main was a good dish as was the oyster and the dessert.
May have been an off night for the team. Just wanting to provide feedback

Fantastic food and service, staff were really friendly and attentive. Only suggestion would be perhaps an asian beverage category. We would have loved to have tried an asian drink with our food.

Food wasn’t as good as previous visits. A lot of the food including the chicken baos didn’t have enough of the sauce so they were just dry, tasteless disappointments. The iceberg lettuce thrown into the bao is also just lazy and unprofessional.
The dumpling filling was dry, overcooked and under seasoned; chewy dry meat.
The duck croquettes were also very bland and we again ran out of sauce to dip them into! STOP being stingy with the sauces! You’re barely saving money by doing that and the food tastes crap without these flavours.
The chicken in the butter chicken was also poorly trimmed. Lots of scraggy fat.
The cocktails looked great but only tasted okay.
As far as value goes it was pretty good. Lots of food for the price but just some areas need improving and this place could be elevated from good to great.

The restaurant is elegant, comfortable and an enjoyable place to eat. I did not like the choice of music but it was not loud enough to spoil the evening.
Service was very good and the half banquet delicious, interesting and we were well fed. I've come here for 3 years and the quality of food and service has never changed.
