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.

Beautiful place in Ballarat. The food and cocktails are delightful. We loved the flavours and the meat is cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend to anyone for a casual and delicious night :)

We had the half moon banquet.
It was a terrific night out for my partner and I. A causal & sophisticated venue with delicious food and great friendly staff.

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.

It was so hot and uncomfortable I will not return again until air conditioning is put into the front of the building

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.

Outstanding as always. We had the feed me menu and perhaps I would suggest cutting down the main meals to 2 only.

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.

We enjoyed the visit very much. The staff are friendly and chatty and very able. The food was all delicious. Fantastic flavours and presentation. My only criticism would be of the Beef cheek massaman curry which was very tasty but the beef cheek was very fatty - you expect some but not as much as our dish had. Very little beef really. Luckily we were pretty full.Otherwise I would return in a heartbeat if I lived a little closer!

Our favorite restaurant, we have been here several times, bought all our friends and family here. Above and beyond friendly customer service, the best cocktail menu you have ever seen. Scallops and King fish sashimi dish are delicious and we order them every time. Head chef is very talented and deserves all the credit he can get!! Brilliant

Great food, we had the full moon banquet which was great value for money and a great mix of foods. The room does get a little noisy with the brick walls bouncing noise off them which made it hard to hear at times but a good vibe mostly.

We cant wait to try more of the dishes! Generous servings were appreciated and our Waiter Alex was the true star! He was welcoming, attentive, informative (Wine & Food) and obviously love what he does. We will be back soon with friends.
