overpriced, nasty chinese food – I can't believe any of the good reviews. The food was nasty and waitress was a smart a$$. I asked what's in the shrimp szechuan and she answered sarcastically: shrimp. No way that the food is fresh, we were served couple minutes after we ordered. And the price is way high. It is a disgrace to Chinese food, and those who think it is the best Chinese food they had, they are missing out a lot on good food. Sorry.
Great Delivery – We frequently order delivery from August Moon and are surprised every time by how fast they are (and that's to the Sylvan/Forest Heights area, not downtown). The food is quite good. I've tried several of my favorite standard dishes at this point and all have been very well prepared. There are some interesting things on the menu too. We've become fond of the Lamb Szechuan Style. I'd never seen lamb on a Chinese menu before...
Excellant quick delivery service, open all the time. Very friendly staff. – We have used August Moon for many years as our family's favorite local Chinese restaurant. The staff is always nice and their delivery service is outstanding. We love Mongolian beef, the House Special Fried Rice and Sweet and Sour Shrimp (they put the sauce on the side, which is nice). I have tried many other Chinese restaurants all over the country, this one is consistently good.
Won Tons Rock – Sally and her tribe rock this place. I especially love their pork lo-mein and chicken fried rice. Portions are a good size and food is served hot and quick.
I rarely ever have to wait on a take away order.
Poor Customer Service – We ordered our food at 6.30pm and were told that it would be 45 minutes. After 50 minutes, we gave them a call and they said that they were busy that it would be 20 more minutes. So we waited 30 more minutes to give them a call, and the host on the phone had no idea who we were! We gave our address and explained our order and she said that we should have received it a while ago and that she will call us right back. She calls us right back to say that it will be 20 more minutes!!! My husband asked her, isn't out food going to be cold? At that point we were thinking of canceling our order. However the delivery guy showed up and it was 8.15pm!! We ended up waiting 1h45 for our food which came lukewarm!! The hostess on the phone was inconsiderate and impolite! We can understand that it was the day before Thanksgiving but they shouldn't take more than they can handle!!!And thats not all: while eating,my husband found a piece of glass in his beef lo mein CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? Where did that come from???? Well, we won't order there again, the food is decent but definitively not worth it!!!
great chinese food delivery and great service – we really love ordering delivery from august moon. the food is always really good and they are always really friendly. the veggies always taste really fresh and my husband loves the chicken lo main. plus there's something about eating good take out chinese from those boxes...
Great Service Good Inexpensive Food – They treat you like family(and not in a bad way). The quality for the price can not be beat. Not pretty, just good.
best chinese found in pdx so far – Despite the ChinaTown in PDX, I still favor August Moon on 23rd for a good meal. The price is right, service attentive and specials yummy. You'll quickly get addicted to the Crispy Tofu, Tofu Vegetable Soup and array of other tofu dishes. The booths are cozy and it's also right off a bus line if you don't feel like driving. They have a parking lot but it only fits about 3 cars at a time. Overall, it's consistently good and better than a lot of the other "authentic" Chinese places I've come across since moving from NYC. The manager is very nice and will remember you after even one visit.
a bit pricey for so-so food... – Reviews made it seem ok, but there's plenty of better chinese places out there. Ordered the general tso's chicken, Hot and Sour soup, and egg roles. Soup and egg roles were fine. The chicken was all dark meat which I find to be sub-par for a specialty item. I don't plan on going back.
Best Chinese delivery in town – While their ambiance may not be the best, we love August Moon for take-out. They are quick and curteous, and the food is great.
