We went here for lunch while staying nearby. I ordered the lunch special orange chicken non spicy with an egg roll. My friend ordered the sesame chicken lunch special. Both of our meals were delicious. You could tell the oil was just changed and we will definitely go back again while we are here.

The food was way too salty. We liked the hot and sour soup and, especially, the pot stickers. The scallion pancakes were a disappointment; not as good as years ago; need more scallions. The service was very friendly and efficient.

Fernando a waiter at the restaurant pelecanos at the moon palace nazuc is a amazing waiter that we went to every night and always left us more than satisfied, he got to know us personally and asked us great question, and after the first day he remembered our names, he always knew what drink would fit the food we ordered or the mood we were in, and made sure we got plenty of their fabulous bread. Fernando was overall the highlight of my trip experience wise and I will be back next year to hopefully see him again.

Le Chateau last night was spectacular. The chef Francisco created a one of a kind dining experience. With Erick looking after every need this could not have been a better experience. The wow factor has set a new bar for what a great dinning experience is.

Eduardo was our bartender and an amazing person! He’s going to school to learn English and further his career. He willingly took the time to help us with the Spanish translations while working on his English. He made excellent drink suggestions and truly made our evening above and beyond! Thank you for a wonderful experience that made our vacation so much more than expected!!! Until next time!!!! Cheers - Sharon & Blake ;)

Servers are very attentive, sweet, and kind every time we come. The food is excellent. One dish better than the next. In particular, best rice cakes I have EVER had. Superb sizzling beef with black pepper sauce. Great cumin lamb. I could go on and on. Try the chicken corn soup. My husband loved it and he usually is not a fan. Portions are large. Highly recommend this restaurant in Chinatown.

This is delicious Chinese food. The General Tsao is AMAZING! The Xhiolo bao is delicious and the people are so sweet and kind!! We had a wheelchair and they brought out a ramp and put it out so we could come in and dine. So kind. We’ll be back! It was a fantastic experience.

If you are staying at the Moon Palace, Cancun you must go to El Manglar Restaurant for your breakfast. Antonio de Jesus Susana does the most perfect poached eggs, cooking them whilst you wait so that they are exactly right. He is always busy with guests queueing up for his omelletes too but, although he must be nearly melting with the heat from his stove, he is always cheerful and joking with the guests....top chef..thank you.

During a recent visit to Chicago we went with friends to Moon Palace in Chinatown. Ever since our favorite Chinese restaurant closed in Glenview Illinois we’ve been looking to replicate that quality of food. Moon Palace is the answer to my prayers. I have never had such delicious egg roll and everything that the six of us ordered was delicious. We even went back a week later for lunch. There are many restaurants in China town but you cannot go wrong with Moon Palace.

Has been a while since I moved from Philly to Chicago. Couldn't find a restaurant with decent Peking Duck... I FOUND it! Absolutely delicious. Now I just need to find a restaurant that makes snails in black bean sauce.

The restaurant's at the Moon Palace that I've experienced were excellent.The reason being is not just the food but the staff most of them were doing there best serving me and my family and I want to give them recognition for a job well done. They are: Jerome - Waiter, Kieron - Outside Waiter, Odain, Omar, Carlin, Sabrina, Tamara, Rosie - Bar/Lobby and last but not least, Wade Wynter and his staff for making sure that our rooms were decent. Thank you, Perry & Diane.

The wait staff is attentive without being in your face. I will admit that the food wasn’t extraordinarily different than “typical” Chinese food but it was tasty. The soup was rather delicious.

My husband and I went to Chinatown for lunch. We walked into the Moon Palace. We were immediately seated. There were others in the restaurant, but it was not packed. The restaurant was clean, service was very good and the food was fresh and delicious and reasonably priced. We'll be back!

Chinatown
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures sprinkled throughout the neighborhood ranging from animal structures to pagodas, a tile mosaic, Chinatown Gate, and a Buddhist Temple.
