My mother eats Chinese food at restaurants in New York and Virginia beach. She visited me in January and raves that this is the best Chinese food she has ever tasted in 80 years. Shouldn't need to say much more than that.

Did the dinner buffet. Was disappointing. Several items were cold. Just not a good experience. I won't be going back.

My wife and I recently had the lunch buffet at the China Moon Restaurant. An excellent variety of food which was hot (in temperature) and well seasoned. The hot and sour soup was particularly good that day. I would certainly recommend this restaurant for lunch.

Good food, well stocked buffet for lunch and dinner, interior has been updated and renewed. BUT in a town full of security clearances payment must be made prior to eating. What does this say about the community.

For years, China Moon was a family favorite (see my previous review). I even had a British friend choose to eat there on two separate visits to to the US. Unfortunately, last time I went, the taste of the food was a huge disappointment. The...More
