A marriage between two cuisines is preferable to a marriage between two clones of Sylvester Stallone, a process that eventually results in a baby reared on raw eggs and meat punching-bags. Savor a simpler fusion with today's deal at Mandarin Moon. Choose between two options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of Asian cuisine and drinks during lunch (served until 3 p.m. Monday–Saturday).
- For $12, you get $25 worth of Asian cuisine and drinks during dinner (served 3 p.m.–close, Monday–Saturday; 12–9:30 p.m. Sunday).
Mandarin Moon's menu fearlessly fuses Japanese, Thai, and Chinese epicurean disciplines, taking tongues on a pan-cultural journey. Dip steamed dumplings ($4) in a lightly sweet, sesame-ponzu sauce before turning your devouring beam toward the samba delight ($15), a piquant amalgamation of wok-grilled chicken, beef, shrimp, and Asian greens. An indulgent all-you-can-eat sushi option ($18.95) appeases appetites, while non-sushi lunch entrees arrive with complimentary soup or green salad. Afternoon appetites appease their cavernous rumblings with the classic co-mingling of rice noodles and vegetables ($6), chicken ($7), or shrimp ($8) in a pad thai dish, and tongues traverse unfamiliar taste terrains with Southeast Asian lunch entrees ($6) that swathe a choice of meat or tofu with one of seven sauces such as thai mango chili, szechuan kung pao, or a coconut curry that recently backpacked through Laos.
Soft light from suspended box lanterns spreads cautiously across the wood paneling and sea-green tranquility of Mandarin Moon's seashell- studded walls, and the latticework of a large wine rack hints of the many bottles contained within. Border-defying delicacies and elegant knickknack-studded nooks lend diners an atmosphere of Asian authenticity without the hassle of posing for a passport or converting the dining room into a dojo.
Mandarin Moon Restaurant
Soft, colored light beams out from beneath the elegant sushi bar at Mandarin Moon Restaurant , where skilled sushi chefs prepare traditional and specialty rolls. Lobster tail, spicy tuna, and salmon inhabit the gleaming glass case alongside more unexpected ingredients, such as duck and grilled steak. Between mouthfuls of sushi and sashimi, diners at the dark-wood tables and chairs can feast on classic Thai dishes, Chinese food favorites, or the envy of guests who didn't order the crab rangoon.
