Golden service, friendly staff. Food very greasy, unseasoned & bland. Atmosphere is fun funky quirky to say the least. Wouldn't go back but nice folks.

This is an inexpensive but unexciting place. This is not the area we'd go for Chinese food, but it was Christmas Eve and we wanted to have Jewish Christmas. The hot-sour soup was delicious, everything else perfectly okay but a little bland. A good place to take your relatives who don't want anything too spicy or unusual. The servers seemed... More

The owners are nice and attentive. It's a heck of a lot better food than Panda Express. Extensive menu and reasonable prices.

A family run restaurant with the best Chinese food in San Luis Obispo County. The service always quick and friendly. The prices are resonable. The food is always delicious and the ingredienents fresh. I generally order an appetizer of egg roll, sauteed Szechuan eggplant, dry fried green beans with Szechuan sauce and vegetable chow mein. The portions are generous and... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch. The food was better than other Chinese restaurants in the 5 Cities area we have tried. While the server was friendly, she was inattentive to us. While she knew we needed service, she continued setting tables. Not just one, either. Maybe she was having a bad day.

We eat here often as the food is very tasty and Kim is a delight when it comes to friendly service. The lunch menu is so affordable that it does not pay to stay home. We love the Golden Moon.

Tried this restaurant almost 2 years ago. Wasn't pleased, but that's history. Really like this place now. Quality of food now is really good. Sevice has greatly improved and I like helping out the local businesses.

Was hoping this place would live up to reviews but was very disappointed. Shrimp and lobster sauce had very little flavor, Szechuan eggplant was tasteless mush, beef broccoli was over cooked and again, flavorless. The staff was very friendly, and I liked the funky old house atmosphere, but can't make up for the fact that the food yuck!
