Mandarin Moon hops across culinary borders to create a menu of Chinese, Japanese, and Thai dishes served amid an intimate setting of dark-stained hardwood tables and deep green hues. Openers such as chicken and corn soup ($2.50–$3.95) or grilled chicken salad with thai plum dressing ($6.95) pave a path for an army of sushi rolls fresh from the sushi bar. Grilled steak and mango rolls jostle for plate space, and spicy mandarin moon rolls eclipse rainbow rolls under a penumbra of white tuna and the chef's honey chili sauce ($10.90–$12.95). Woks, like lighters at the symphony, blaze with slender bites of duck, tiger shrimp, and pan-seared rare tuna ($14.25–$15.95), and Southeast Asian dishes dress meat or tofu in a savory sarong of coconut curry, thai mango, or samba sauces ($8.25–$9.95). Guests can also pounce upon offers for all-you-can-eat sushi for lunch ($12.95, from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and dinner ($19.95, from 3 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.).
Gentle red and green hues pouring forth from suspended paper lanterns light up Mandarin Moon’s intimate dining atmosphere. Dark-stained hardwood tables wait patiently to support plates, while guests gander at the tips of wine bottles peeking out from Mandarin Moon’s wall of vintages and listen to their gossip over whose got the oldest grapes.
Though Mandarin Moon sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
