    Moonshine brunch is legit! Totally worth the drive from our house! (45 min) The entire experience was great from check in to the yummy executive mimosas and apps to start we had the French toast sticks and poutine tots! Chef/owner Mei is so personable and immersive in service and so humble for all her guests. The food is on point and so flavorful! A must try even if you don't live in Southie! We'll be back!

    This was a nice place to go out to try unique pairings (the curry tots were especially delicious ) but the price did not match the overall ambience or most of the menu items. The drinks were decent but overpriced with no unique flair and some of the food items (chicken and waffles) were just average. I think for the bar atmosphere and noise levels that the price for food and drinks is not justified. The ratings on Yelp were extremely high and I was expecting more elevated food and dining for the ratings and price. Overall, I think this is a decent restaurant to try out with some stand-out dishes (curry tots and dirty fried rice were my favorites) but potentially not worth the drive or commute if you’re not from South Boston

    The food was unbelievably delicious. I ordered food that had ingredients I do not generally enjoy. Chef Asia made everything taste great. The Pho that came with the Pho-rrito was so complex I wish I could buy it by the stock pot. Highly recommend.

    Hard to find better tasting food in this city! From the lamb meatballs, brussels, meatloaf, noodles dishes & tacos - have tried it all and it never fails. Chef is amazing and brings the food to your table herself. The staff provides great service and the drinks and made with care. Absolutely love this place. Dine-in/takeout are always topnotch. Try it!

    The food was outstanding. The chef/owner personally delivers every meal. You can taste the love that goes into each dish. The Rangoon is a must have with the perfect touch of heat from the jalapeños. The mushroom tofu burger is by far the best veggie burger I’ve every eaten.

    We were there a little late for our reservation on Saturday evening, December 10th. The host was very forgiving of our tardiness. Our waitress could not have been lovelier. Great staff! The food was divine. Who ever though up bacon wrapped stuffing bites? Genius! They were delicious. We all had burgers and lime-ade. Everyone in our party raved. We will definitely be back. Also, whoever choses the music, good on you! I am a teenager of the 80's and I was quite pleased. My only complaint is that parking is horrendous.

    Service and food were spot on. The Apps came quickly and were very yummy. We ordered the December special Burger, they came cooked perfectly as we requested and were quite tasty. Given all the deliciousness we went for the dessert and were not disappointed. Having a chef come out and bring your food and ask you how the meal showed a personal level of care that each dish gets from the kitchen

    Not only is the food out of this world, all the staff at Moonshine + Chef Asia Mei are absolutely wonderful. Whenever I have friends in town I always take them to Moonshine. It feels like coming home + a friendly, welcoming, inclusive environment with truly the best food in Boston. Chef Asia Mei hand delivered our food to our table and came over to chat with us throughout the meal. Do not sleep on the party tots / party sprouts + my personal fav are the stuffing bites!

    Asia never disappoints. Even when Moonshine is packed, Asia regularly greets guests and is the epitome of kindness. Her latest creation Autumn Arancini Risotto Fritters might be the best thing I’ve ever tasted. We got a large order to go and had them today for lunch. Honestly, everything on the menu is incredible. I just can’t say enough good things about Moonshine or Asia.
