The best pizza I have ever eaten in my life. It's fun and unique!!! I wish I discovered this place sooner. I love the people. I love the mosaic glass lights. But most of all, I love the FOOTBALL PIZZA!!!
Touchdown!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – This Football Pizza Should be everywhere!!!! It is the best pizza I have ever eaten. This pizza is so good that it is better than five stars. IT scores big with the ladies. IT scores big with the guys. IT scores big with the grandma. This Football Pizza just scores BIG!!!!!
Best Football Pizza on Earth!!!!! – This is the ultimate pizza of pizzas. The shape, the crust and the taste are simply unique and unsurpassed. This is the first pizza that left me wanting more. It is accompianied with a green sauce that is completely outstanding. I can't say enough about this pizza. Don't miss out on this Football Masterpiece.
The BEST Kept Secret in Northeast – I regret not going to Crescent Moon sooner. I took my girl friend out to try something new and she suggested this awesome place. We ordered the Afghani combo for two and is was Amazing!!!. I went back with my buddies the next week and we had the Afghani combo for four and it was even better. The kabobs were so juciey and fresh. There was this awesome rice with raisins and carrots garnished on top and a tremendously outrageous green sauce. Crescent Moon is my next stop and I am going to take on their Afghani and Football pizzas. The secret is out. I am telling everyone about this place.
Afghani pizza is amazing – Their Afghani pizza is incredible. I went there with 3 friends and 2 of us got the spinach tomato pizza (I think that was it), and 2 got the House special (beef, onions and green peppers). I was a bit iffy about the house special because green peppers can over take a pizza, but it was INCREDIBLE. Since my first trip there about 5 weeks ago I've been back 4 times, always delicious. The green dipping sauce is incredible, and it's prepared fairly quickly too. A must try.
Huge portions of food and friendliness – What a find. We always love experience just as much as the food but plan for plenty of time. It s a place to relax and take in the atmoshere.The gentleman who is generally there makes us feel very welcome. The pizza is fabulous. The spice and sauce gives it something that we can't find anywhere else. We wish it was closer to home because we normally drive for 40 minutes to get there. Right now my husband is going through chemotherapy that has changed his sense of taste and all he talks about is getting to the crescent moon when he can taste again!
Great little place – I enjoy coming to that small family restaurant - it's cosy, welcoming, and offers great food at reasonable prices. The owners greet you as old friends and it is really one of the neighborhood attractions. The spinach & feta pies, afgani pizza, lamb cabobs are the best in the cities.
Best Cheesey/Spicy Pizza – We always get a cheese pizza with jalapenos. The sauce has this secrete tangy spicy to it, and the dough is wonderful. It is always made fresh. Very friendly staff, they remember us when we walk in. I highly recommend this place to anyone who loves pizza or Mediterranean and garlic flavors. Kind of hard to find parking. Inside is not all that great looking. Large enough, and plenty of tables if you have a large group.
AMAZING EXPERIENCE – I know where the BEST Afghani pizza is made by hand is in the world. Crescent Moon. It is an really amazing must try. They have this mouth watering secret sauce combined with a tastey hand-made crust that will make you lick your fingers. You can have anything on top including eggplant, spinach, gyro, and their House Special. Their cheese is a perfect blend to make your molars go crazy and your tongue scream. They add this side of incredible green sauce to accompany the Pizza - "What the Heck? Only ONE container?" It is that good. But be careful when sinking your pearly whites into this pizza, it may bite you back (a little spicy). Wake Up Minneaota - You have a gold mine
interesting and worth a visit – My roommate turned me on to this place last night. I'd had Indian and Persian food before, but this was slightly different. The Kourma was your typical three part plate....beef chunks in a spicy (but subtle) sauce, rice flavored with a spice I've never had before in my life, and a salad that was just ok. Their gyro meat was tasty and good in a meat pie. Baklava was very sweet and sticky. As others have said (on citypages) they could work more on service and bussing tables. Price was ok ($9 for my plate as I recall, baklava was $1.60 a piece).
Definitely one I will visit again and reccomend to others
