Great food. They allowed us to do the Feed Me option at lunch time which was great. Staff are full of recommendations and very attentive. Highly recommend. Make sure you are very hungry, so much great food to try.

We ordered the half moon and thoroughly enjoyed the food that was provided. Service was great apart from the employee making a decision to not bring out the last course as he “saw we were getting full” we understood why, but feel we should have asked and allowed us to decide if we wanted the last course instead of someone else making the assumption and giving us dessert. overall enjoyed the night.

Great place for delicious food. The only let down was the waiter not experienced enough to suggest a balanced menu. We had too much fried food and not enough salad type items as recommended by our waiter.

I think this is the 9th or 10th visit to Moon & Mountain, so that says everything. I love the food, it is fresh, interesting and full of flavour. As a vegetarian with seafood allergies I am always catered for and it is never an issue with the staff/chef. Service is always great and I will be back again and again!

We (party of 4) dined at Moon and Mountain on Saturday night and had a lovely night - the food was excellent (as usual) and the service was great: friendly and attentive but not over bearing. I highly recommend the "Eat up" menu, which is a share plate option. We had the "Half Moon", the smaller of the two options, and found this to be more than enough food. In fact, we couldn't quite finish the last dish! We were seated upstairs, in a booth, and found this helped to allow conversation as it was a little more quiet being in a booth. This is the third time I've eaten at Moon and Mountain, and I will certainly be back again.

Superb Asian cuisine matched only by the service. A little pricey perhaps but we thought given the quality and generous serves the there was still good value for money. Our only criticism of the place is that the tables are quite small and very close together. Despite this minor criticism we thoroughly recommend Moon and Mountain to anyone looking for quality food with more than just a hint of genuine Asia.

Everything was lovely, food was delicious, service was great, we found the upstairs area much quieter than downstairs, and therefore easier to talk to our friends. It is an expensive meal though.

Was extremely disappointed in the table service. The poor lass serving us had no idea on how to poor sparkling Shiraz. A significant amount of wine in the table. The waiter dropped a basket of dumplings on the table. After a pause I picked them up and put them back in the basket. The mess on the table was left for us to clean up with napkins.
My wife and I are fairly regular and had invited visitors from out of town to dine with us. We had raved about previous experiences and we were extremely disappointed. The food was as usual outstanding.
Please take this feedback as constructive not destructive.

This was the second time in 6 months we had travelled from Geelong to eat at Moon and Mountain. We are vegan and they offer such great food for us so it's a place we can always go to with friends and feel very much part of the group. The ambience is fantastic and both times we have been there we were the last to leave the building, staff very patiently waiting! The staff are very helpful, explaining the menu and offering to adjust menu items to suit specific tastes. Their wine list is excellent also. Highly recommend it and I suspect we will be travelling again from Geelong in the very near future.

The food is delicious & well priced. The drinks excellent. The service outstanding and friendly. The only negative feedback is the niose. The high ceiling, consistently packed out venue all combined with bare floorboards make for a very noisey dining experience. If you don't mind that, then don't worry.

First time to Moon & Mountain and it was a great experience. Apart from varied menu, delicious food & great service, it’s one of the few places that you don’t have to wear a coat because of excessive air conditioning. Such a rarity to feel comfortable and warm - really adds to the experience! We’ll be back!

Fantastic food and staff were lovely. We did however get kicked off our table (only after an hour and a half of a “feed me” menu. We were asked to move to the bar area to accommodate another couple who had booked a table. Was our 15th wedding anniversary so meant to be a special night but was cut short. We weren’t advised that we would need to be done in a time frame and at the time of booking had identified it was our anniversary. Slightly sour ending to an otherwise great night.

Great service, friendly and efficient. Scarlet was lovely and other staff who dropped by to check if we needed anything.
Great atmosphere. Seemed like wait staff and chefs were enjoying themselves even though it was very busy.
Thanks. Will be back soon.
