The restaurant looked nice from outside and true enough, once we went in, the look was not bad. We came during lunch, so the lady just gave us a menu for special lunch. There were quite many varieties of food with prices around US$ 6.00 including one soup and one egg roll. The lady of the place seemed trying hard... More

I really wasn't impressed. Atmosphere and cleanliness are plus. Service was poor. Crab Rangoon was not good at all. We were never asked what we wanted to drink.

I lived in the neighborhood for 12 y but had only had lunch there once. The lunch wasn't very good but I went back b/c I heard their General Tsao's chicken was rated one of the best in the city (not hard considering the quality of Chinese food in Portland is not great) and it was very good. They had... More

Wife was shopping. Meeting here for dinner. Like others, no business on a beautiful busy Friday should have been all I needed to see. I told sole server I would be waiting a while. No response. I had to ask for beer. I finish it and she walked past me 10 times and never looked my way. I'm too old... More

I'm a fan of GrubHub here at work. This is a summary of multiple orders I've placed and actually dining in. While I love the wide variety of restaurants available this is always my go to place for Chinese. I've ordered from other restaurants and some are faster, some are cheaper (August Moon is in NW PDX which has pricey... More

We were the only customers in the restaurant on Labor Day, with hundreds of people walking by the window. Our fellow eater ordered the Peking Duck, as soon as we arrived, because it takes about 30 minutes. His arrived way before the rest of our requests. I ordered the Happy Family, scallops, shrimp, BBQ pork, chicken and veggies. The scallop... More

I was in the mood for Chinese and used a restraunt ap to order food for delivery in my hotel. The food was just over an hour later after I ordered. I ordered 2 sodas for $1.50 thinking they are 20oz bottels but surprised to learn they are 2-8oz cans, which on the appartment there is no size indicated. The... More

August moon is a little hole in the wall, blink and you miss it restaurant. It is very popular with locals because the food is amazing. The woman who runs the place, and has for years, is a little cold with not much of a sense of humor but somehow it adds to the charm. Every dish I have tried... More

Noticed “Zagat Rated” placard in the window (Year 2013) while walking this great neighborhood earlier in the day so decided to try dinner here later that same day. When we arrived we were the only people in the restaurant. Not a good sign. Service and food were OK, but nothing special. Definitely not deserving of a top Zagat rating. Lots... More

The lunch hour group appeared to be late in arriving, that should have been a warning! Our foursome chose our chairs, sat down and began reading the menu. All of my favorites were there, Pot Stickers – Hot Sour Soup and General Toas Chicken. My wife said she was going to try the Shrimp dish. Those words were the only... More
