Moon Thai and Sushi

From the moment we entered the restaurant, we were stimulated. From the illuminated bar, to the colored and romantic lighting to the traditional statues, I felt welcome. The vibe was homey yet foreign. It was not overwhelming and the Thai cuisine did not overwhelm the room, in terms of smells. In fact, it was quite cool to keep the room neutral. There was virtually no wait and we sat at a table near the window. Many of the tables are booths, which reinforces the casual feel.

Although the server took a bit of time to tend to us, she was polite and smiled consistently. We received two menus, a Thai one and a Japanese one, thus our choices were endless. I know that Moon is known for its Thai menu and thus opted for that menu alone. As I described above, we enjoyed the coconut shrimp and the soft shell crab to start. The shrimp was my favorite, but the crab was disappointing. However, my cocktail was quite enjoyable, a lychee martini, made of lychee juice, rather than flavored syrup. I was impressed.

For the main course, we enjoyed the green curry with chicken and eggplant. So bold, so rich and so thick. I had seconds and could not save any for the doggy bag. The red curry was also pleasant, although there were not enough pineapples and the curry flavor was a bit weaker than usual. It may be that the overwhelming flavors of the duck inhibited my taste buds. The duck in of itself was both moist and crispy, but the sauce was unpleasant to me. Too sour and too sweet and thus it was tough to enjoy it. Nonetheless, overall the meal was well balanced and the white rice helped smooth out the changes from sauce to sauce. I continued to think about the shrimp, the lychee martini and the green curry, and for those reasons I would absolutely recommend it to a friend.

Moon Thai is located in a small shopping center off the main road in Weston. It’s easy to get to from I-75 and the parking is super easy. I walked in and was kind of star struck for a moment because I wasn’t expecting such a beautiful restaurant. We sat at these huge tables reserved for large parties. We were six and even though my wife and I were the first to arrive, they sat us immediately. No wait. They were showing Sunday Night Football on a wall in the sushi station, which was right in front of us. My buddy and I are huge football fans so we were pleased. The tables were high like bistros but the tops were too wide. We sat three on a side but it felt like our friends were a just a bit too far away from us.

The service initially was very good. It declined a bit toward the end, as we waited a long time for our check. They had drink specials and we tried two of them. My wife didn’t like hers and the server gladly exchanged it for something else. Once my friends arrived, we ordered more drinks, appetizers, and entrees. But the service got a little slow here. The server brought out our appetizers and took our orders but it took almost 30 minutes for the food to arrive. That was extremely disappointing. I joked that I’ll bring a snickers bar next time and eat it while I wait for my dinner because it’s going to be a while.

We ordered pan fried dumplings from the dim sum menu and miso soup for my wife. My dumplings were really delicious and she thought the soup was great. For our entrees, three of us ordered three different varieties of curry. Mine was not spicy enough and my friend’s was too spicy. They were about as delicious as I’ve had at other Thai restaurants so I can’t say that there was something extraordinary about Moon Thai’s curry. My other friend has pad thai and it tasted average at best. My wife had sushi and a roll (they have lots of combinations) and said it was okay.

When it was time for dessert I searched the menu for something that I had never tried before and I found it. A roti (they spell it ROTEE) stuffed with ice cream syrupy spongy filling and rolled up like a California roll, sliced into thick pieces, and a large bowl. I didn’t care too much for it.

As I described earlier, the server kind of disappeared toward the end and we waited a long while for our check. The bill for me and my wife was almost $100, which is what you should expect to pay at any upscale restaurant. Normally, we wouldn’t order so much food but we wanted to try as many things as we could.

Friendly service at Moon Thai & Japanese restaurant in Weston, FL. Great affordable prices for some fresh Japanese food. If you’re in Broward and craving Pho, duck soup, sushi, or everything in between, I would recommend Moon Thai & Japanese. Coconut Shrimp – Delicious! The service was attentive and friendly; the décor included very modern marble tables, vibrant neon lights, and projector TVs. Definitely affordable and well-priced. The portions were adequate and had a very nice presentation with a fun atmosphere, not too loud and family friendly.
