“Very good Chinese cuisine”
Review of Moon gardens

Moon gardens
Ranked #5 of 10 Restaurants in Hawks Nest
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 October 2017

It is Moon Garden Chinese restaurant and serves a huge range of very
tasty Chinese dishes in a serene location in Hawks Nest. The duck and pork dishes in particular are great and there are many others to go with the nice fried rice, or nasi goreng. There are a couple of non Chinese dishes as well. Yum.

Street appeal is very basic but restaurant was clean and the food & service were excellent- The crispy duck pancakes were brilliant. Will definately be back.

The food was good (not great, but good), but we thought it was much more expensive than what we ordered at the adjacent Nepalese restaurant on our last visit to Hawks Nest) … however, I must say that the servings were huge.

It’s only a small restaurant, and was extremely busy on a Saturday night. I suggest you phone and book, or run the risk of not getting a table. They were also very busy with a large amount of take-away orders.

In spite of the fact that it was busy and the waitress was run off her feet, she coped well, and the service was very good (she's worth more money).

Note: BYO only (there is a liquor store next door)..

After reading the other reviews, we were not expecting amazing Chinese. However we were pleasantly surprised. We ordered steamed dim sims, curry diamonds (which were actually triangle ... Lol), sweet & sour pork and Szechuan beef. The main dishes were among the best we have ever tasted ... So much flavour, we enjoyed every bite. We would definitely return if we visited the area again.

Sampled three types of noodles, the spring rolls and the honey prawns.
Two of the noodles (hokkien mee with chicken and prawn; stir-fried rice noodle with beef) were made in a traditional (authentic?) style. The fried beef noodles in particular tasted like they do in Sydney or in Asia. The chow mein and the honey prawns tasted just like they should for a country town or suburban Chinese restaurant, which is fine, because we didn't order them for authenticity, but to try the Aussie-Chinese style food.
Service was friendly and prompt. Food came quickly on a Sunday night. Restaurant is air conditioned. It is BYO (bring own wine/beer). Cold water provided without asking. No chopsticks for table setting (fork and spoon). Average price per dish/person seems to be about $22. I'd come again.
