    3 friends catching up over beautiful food and bubbles. We had the half moon and the food just kept coming, never did we feel like we were waiting for it to arrive. We could not chose which dish was the best as they were also good. Highly recommend

    Food was lovely. Disappointed that I requested to bring an extra person ( had booked a table for 4) but was told this was impossible because of no more seating. We were seated at a table that could easily accommodate 6 and there were 4 large empty tables near us.

    Excellent customer service without being pushy, and both our cocktails and food was amazing. It was a quiet cold night in Ballarat but the gentle hum of the restaurant indicated both staff and diners were enjoying their evening. We would definitely go back, possibly only order the half moon banquet next visit, though the staff were happy to package the mains that we couldn’t fit in as takeaway, which was a lovely gesture that you don’t find elsewhere. Great experience all round.

    Being difficult to find, even from the street outside is an odd business model, perhaps need to consider supplying the clues with the booking confirmation. The staff were all very pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful, and the dining room itself was cheerful and comfortable. Then the food arrived and ruined it all. We had a few recommendations for this restaurant, and love Asian food, so we had high expectations. The first dish - dumplings and pot stickers were tasty, but one dimensional - both had the same flavour, umami and five spice. The onion and shallot garnishes were great though. Similarly the flavours of the chicken and pork baos were much the same, not unpleasant but lacking much interest. Tasted much the same as the first dish. The DIY spring roles again were tasty enough, but of a similar flavour as before, and the 'chilli jam' tasted incredibly like hoi-sin. Nicely presented, but lacking anything special. The broccoli in garlic and oyster sauce was the highlight as it provided a second flavour for the evening. Shame that one of the sides is needed to redeem any sort of taste from the meal. The sticky chicken was less sticky and more dry. Not dry as in crispy but dry as in unpleasant and almost inedible until you added some of (plenty of) the oyster sauce from the broccoli. To be honest, you could experience food of equal flavour and standard from your local take away at a fraction of the price, whic is what I'd recommend. A few tweaks here and there could however elevate this from fairly ordinary to really rather good.

    I have been a fan of Moon and Mountain since my first visit and returned many times. Unfortunately this time with a change of menu did not live up to consistent quality I have seen in the past. Some of the food was quite dry and bland, not like the previous menu. Service was impeccable as always however the waiter failed to top up the wine and the bottle was not in our reach. I will be back, everyone can have an off day.

    I found Moon and Mountain on a Google search. It came up highly recommended for food, service and experience. It did not disappoint. We had a lovely evening with delicious food all arriving at timely intervals by a new friendly face each time. We left full, but not bursting at the seams. The cocktails were unique and delicious. Thanks for an enjoyable dining experience.

    Food = amazing. Top notch Ambience = Very breezey front front door. And generally quite noisey. Staff = Polite. But biggest issue was being rushed off table and forced out door for next sitting. I understand the business needs to seat another table of paying diners, however we would have been happy to move to the bar or a table upstairs for some add-on desserts, coffee, drinks, etc. None of that was even offered, our plates were taken while some of us were still eating. This spoiled an otherwise great night.

    The food was great but there was unfortunately a staff shortage in the kitchen so there was a delay bringing courses out. This meant we were rushed at the end due to the next bookings being at 7.45. It did spoil the lovely evening unfortunately. 😔

    We were celebrating our anniversary and we were seated and given a glass of champagne on the house, a great start to our experience and it just got better from there. The Staff were knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly, a credit to the restaurant. The food was beyond delicious (and so were the cocktails). I would highly recommend and will definitely be making a return visit

    The wait staff were informative and polite throughout. The food was served at a good pace and was great. The cocktails were delicious and on point with the theme. One point of concern is we may not book here during the week if we were looking for a smaller feed as the buffets are filling.

    The food was amazing as always. The service was average. Don't get me wrong, the staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable on the menu. However it took far too long to take our order which meant by the time we were finished we run out of time for dessert. More on this later (we are not slow eaters either). We got our drinks at the start of the meal and that was it. Nobody came back to see if we wanted more drinks. To me this is a sin in hospitality. There is good money to be made on drinks and not offering more costs the business money. Lastly, the rice cooker stopped working. Apparently the kitchen can't use a pot to cook rice? We were offered a free dessert to make up for it. As earlier stated we didn't end up receiving this because of poor timing. They did take a side off the bill for us and the other tables around us. Which while nice, could have been totally avoided with switched on service. After all I would rather be giving the business more money, not less. I will absolutely be going back again. As stated the food is consistently amazing and I believe the lapse in service to be a one off, as we have eaten here many times before with no issues.

    The staffs knowledge of the food was fantastic. We ordered the Full Moon menu and were full of food by the end. So many beautiful flavours and textures. The only slip up was they forgot my cocktail that we’d ordered to drink pre food. We had to ask and I received it with the third course. One of my partners pet hates in a restaurant. Other than that the service was superb and I would highly recommend the experience at Moon and Mountain. We booked this for my birthday dinner on our return from South Australia via Ballarat.
