Have eaten here twice recently. Block or so off of St. Charles. In hospital (Touro) area and a few other eating spots nearby. Ate here once for lunch and once for dinner so far. Lunch was too oily. Dinner was a bit better. Service is fast. Menu is what I call neighborhood Chinese--lunch menu for folks who want to eat... More

I've been to August Moon before and always enjoyed it. Stopped in this afternoon because (a) I had a coupon that was about to expire, (b) I was in the neighborhood, and (c) I'd been in the mood for Chinese food all week (and the supermarket's frozen egg rolls just didn't cut it). My game plan was to have the... More

I like this restaurant because it is near my home, it is easy to get to and pretty quick in it's turn around. I usually get take out because I'm tired, but they are always kind and quick in my order. The food is authentic and well prepared. I enjoy their dumplings the most of course. It is decently priced,... More

Did a job at the hospital that kept me in NO for an extended time. Ate lunch and diner at the August Moon a bunch of times over a couple months. Not the most outstanding Chinese food I have encountered, but it was fresh and of good quality. Servings are abundant.

While New Orleans is known for good food, they're not known for being very healthy. But the August Moon has its standards. First off they don't use any MSG. Perhaps this has become a trendy thing for some people to avoid. I'm not one of them. I will get a violent, debilitating migraine from it. And I can't tell until... More

I have tried August Moon a few times for lunch and dinner. It was just vile. New Orleans has pretty poor Chinese food offerings to begin with, so I am being kind with the 2 stars. The basics like Kung Pao Chicken have way too many filler veggies. I love veggies, but using copious onion, water chestnut, and celery is... More

The Food is succulent and fresh. The staff is quick and friendly. Did I mention is was amazing! I had the Steak cubes and they were actual fully cooked but not dry or burnt. It was paired with a peanut sauce gravy. I love the food here!

Both spring rolls and Vietnamese rolls were nothing special, the vegetable soup also rather mild, but the sweet and sour tofu and the lemongrass tofu were super delicious! The staff is not very kind but I would go back to try other main courses.

I've been here before and have enjoyed the food. After my last takeout experience I will not be returning. The food leaked all over my car. I called to complain and the woman rudely told me that wasn't possible unless I tilted the bag and she hung up on me. The lid to the food was askew though I'm glad... More

A wonderful experience, as usual, with excellent service and timely pacing on a very busy Friday evening. The standard by which NOLA restaurants should be judged, and there are so many excellent ones. A special thank-you to Robert, not only for handling the reservation, but also for his recommendations on other places we ought to try.

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
