My family and I went to Moon Palace for dinner one evening. The cuisine was amazing. There are various kinds of dumplings served for appetizers. The vegetarian eggrolls are delightful. I enjoyed the xiao long bao. Great dish. I highly recommend going to Moon Palace.

We went for Mothers Day. From the vegetarian eggrolls, eggplant, seafood it was wonderful!! Every dish was unique, flavorful and with exactly the level of spice we had requested. Brown rice was best I've had as well. Just go!! Very reasonable prices $9-15 for each...More

Husband and i stopped in for lunch and enjoyed the xiao long bao, general tso's chicken and Shanghai crispy chicken. Best general tso's chicken I have ever had. Menu labels it as spicy but it really wasn't as long as you remove the red peppers....More

The dumpling were great. We ordered the Peking Duck. Some of the best we have had outside of Hong Kong. Probably the best we have had in China Town. Lovely restaurant with great staff.

We were having dinner with a visitor. The food was good and the portions big. There was Chinese people eating there also, that means it is a good Chinese restaurant, isn't?

Their soup dumplings (xiao lon bao) have been the reason my family and I return. The pork and vegetable filling is a great consistency - not too processed, not too chunky. We like the extra thin ginger and sauce that accompany the dumplings. The noodle...More

I have been going to the Moon Palace for more than 20 years, even before it moved to its 22nd St. location. The place has changed a lot in the more than two decades since I first dropped in, having undergone an interior design upgrade...More

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
