I'm really not exaggerating when I say that. The service is horrendous. My husband and I went there with another couple last night. The girls ordered sushi and the guys ordered hot dishes off the Thai menu. We all ordered tea and they gave us one small pot that barely filled all our glasses. We had to repeatedly ask for more; they did not refill beverages without being prompted. 40 minutes after we ordered we still had no food. Finally the waitress came out and said that they guys' food was done, but the sushi wasn't, so did we want her to bring out the hot food while it was still hot? How on earth the hot food was finished first is beyond me, since sushi is extremely quick to prepare, but we said yes, please bring it out while it's hot. It was another 20 minutes before we saw it, and our sushi still wasn't done. My husband and I are vegetarians, and he ordered a dish off the vegetable menu. He got 5 bites into it and discovered pork in his rice. At that point we were ready to tell the server to forget the whole thing, but we didn't see her again for another 20 minutes, at which point she finally brought out the sushi. As soon as she put the sushi down on the table I knew something was wrong, because we've ordered the same dishes there before and they didn't look the same. I asked the server about it and she insisted that everything was correct. I ordered a tempura tofu roll and it was barely edible. The tofu had so much fried batter surrounding it that it wasn't like eating sushi, it was like eating those little fried bits that line the bottom of the tray at Long John Silver's. It was absolutely disgusting, and I didn't even finish it. My spring roll really wasn't at all edible. The pieces were enormous, and poorly assembled, so that you couldn't pick them up or bite into them without them falling apart. It was also missing asparagus, one of the ingredients listed on the menu. When I asked about this at the register the girl who prepared the sushi admitted that they were out and neglected to tell me. It took so long for the server to come back after she brought the sushi finally we got fed up and went up to the register without a check to see if we could just pay and leave. They did not apologize at all, or even acknowledge that they had done a terrible job, even though we were clearly unhappy, as they had to take half of our meal off our check. We will absolutely never go back, and when this place inevitably goes out of business we will throw a huge party and celebrate the presence of a little less evil in the world.

I love this restaurant but have one problem. The Beef Curry in Peanut Sauce is very addictive. Unfortunately, it is also so spicy hot that you can't taste all the flavors. One time it was so hot I couldn't taste anything for a couple days. I've asked to have the "hot" turned down. I've seen the servers write this on their pads - the food comes out - get this - hotter! I stick to non-spicy foods there because it is obvious the cook/chef is not willing to help the customer.

I love the Beef Curry in Peanut Sauce but would like to eat it without my mouth getting burned.

FANTASTIC, fresh food! Some of the freshest spicy food I've ever had! I HIGHLY recommend the "Evil Jungle Prince with Chicken," as it's not only a delicious and filling meal, but has a name that keeps you giggling for days!

I have eaten here many times. Food, service, and prices have always been very good. Those I eat with that know, say Thai Moon is most authentic and the best. I just know I like what I get there. Note: Not everything is Hot & spicey as ;Thai " name might suggest.
