We order from Moon Gate on most Sundays. Their menu has lots of great choices and I have been happy with most everything I have tried.\r

The crab rangoons are really good to start with. The egg rolls are good too, but you only get two

We love their food. The chicken and steak are so tender is is amazing. I love all the peanut dishes especially the peanut sauce curry with steak and the tofu with peanut sauce. Our son loves the "One night in Bangkok" and our daughter loves the lo main, fried rice, Mongolian beef and broccoli beef. My husband loves their yaki udon and their tonkatus.

Their udon and tonkatus is as good as what we had when we lived in Japan.

We have never dinned in so I can not say how their service is.

As for the take out service I have only had to wait one time for our food. That was because I ordered a lunch dish at dinner to try it. They were very kind to accommodate me.

We just found this place about 6 months ago. We were going to go eat sushi next door but it was crowded and so we tried Moon Gate and have ordered take out many times.

We go to this restaurant a lot because of the location near Lowry. They have a nice selection on the menu and their food is prepared well.

All the reviews on this restaurant are old and inaccurate. So here's an updated one: I won't lie, this restaurant has some really good dishes, like the beef and broccoli, any of the tempuras, and the fried rice. However, none of these dishes are worth it. The dine-in service is slow and rude and the delivery is even worse. The waiters make you feel like you're a burden to them. Deliveries are no better. They're supposed to take around 30-45 minutes but usually take over an hour to arrive. If you absolutely must have their food, call in and pick it up. The teenage girl without the accent seems to be the only girl at that restaurant who knows how to be friendly and polite to customers. Picking up your food will save you time and the tip, plus getting your food faster means its fresher.

Though Moon Gate is located in a very small venue, and gets crowed fast, it is one of the best Asian restaurants on the east side of town. They offer wide range of foods, our favorites being the Thai selections. The prices are very reasonable and service is fantastic. You might miss this little place because it is located in a run-down location right on Quebec next to a convenience store, but don't let that deter you from visiting. I find the best hours to go are right at dusk before the evening crowd swarm in when you have the pick of tables.

Moongate has the best appetizers around. We usually order 4 appetizers and 1-2 main dishes for our family of 5. The chicken has always been tasty and well cooked - although once the beef was undercooked. However, their appetizers are right on every time. Favorites include Edemame, Golden Tofu, Thai Spring Rolls & Pott Stickers. We usually order out - it's simply too cold in there for comfort during the winter.

YUCK! I am in disbelief this place has as many positive reviews as it does! We dined here on a recommendation and even gave it a second chance with the hope our first bad experience was an "off" day. Both times the meat was super gamey - on the verge of foul - both the chicken and the beef. The service is horrendous and I found it slightly dirty - ick bathrooms. NOT WORTH THE HYPE! This place is trying desperately to be Thai Basil -- and they fail miserably. The Lowry area is seriosly lacking for good restaurants and Moon Gate only makes the situation worse. My husband will eat ANYTHING and even he won't step foot back in this place - that says a lot.
It's worth the drive to Thai Basil - but don't waste your time on this gross place. Trust me...

I am from Las Vegas, therefore i am use to some of the best foods. The food was comparable to the Asia buffet in Las Vegas which is above average to good. The delivery was poor and rude....... he was actully wiping his nose when I answered the door then wined about the low tip I gave him. GET TAKE OUT. The food is worth the value and the service on the phone was very good. I feel somewhat sorry for the cook as he is doing a very good job but is in the shadows of such a poor server as in my books presentation is 50% of the meal otherwise I would be eating lean cuisine!!!!
Fire the delivery driver and I would rate it 8.5.

One of my favorite restaurants. The food is very fresh. The best Asian food I've found in Denver...possibly anywhere.

Moongate is one of my favorite restaurants in Denver, with some of the best asian food to be found anywhere. The sesame chicken is superb, nevermind the skeptics who think you can get sesame chicken anywhere. The chicken is tender, the bread coating is light and crispy, and the sauce is spicy and flavorful. While the Pad Thai is, to be sure, not the best, the Chinese foods are superior. Also try the seaweed salad, if you would like to try a different treat. Don't expect that dry crispy seaweed though; its definitely different. Entrees are generously sized, and come with rice (or fried rice and an eggroll during lunch). The vegetables are nicely steamed and crispy, as is traditional. For dessert, try the red bean or green tea ice cream. Both are tasty, although not the best I've ever had. While the restaurant is definitely chilly during the winter, I don't understand why people have problems with the service. Like any place, service is slower the busier they are, and also like anywhere else, if you're polite, they'll be polite also.

Suggestions: Sesame chicken or tofu, any of the specialty dishes, but the Thai food isn't the best. Not bad, but not as outstanding as the rest of the food there. I love fried rice, so lunch is always nice, because dinner comes with fried rice, although if you ask nicely, they may make a change for you for dinner. Service isn't five star, but its nothing to complain about, and the food is superb. You can get many of the same dishes you can get at any Chinese restaurant, but the quality is much better, and I'm always happy to pay for quality...except at Moongate, you won't be paying extra. All in all, an A+ restaurant, which is well-suited to someone who likes good food, but doesn't want to spend the big bucks.

You guys need to stop having the same stuff you can find at every other asian place, try the moonharbor or other plates they have there you don't see everywhere else. Sesame chicken are you kidding me? That a Dime-a-Dozen.

Compared to other chain options near Lowry, Moongate is fabulous! The prices are reasonable and the food is very flavorful. The service can be hit or miss but it is well worth a visit! Try the chicken lettuce wraps for something relatively healthy or if you don't care, the sesame chicken is great!

This cozy little restaurant offers excellent service and has been rating quite highly in the past-I can see why. The food is delicious and it is promplty served on the cutest plates. Plus, there is a treat at the end.

The food is good, and much fresher than ordering it delivered. I went in tonight and was so cold, that the food was not worth it. If you are freezing you cannot enjoy your dinner-I kept my coat on and was still cold. The lady at the 7-11 next door told me EVERYONE complains about that.

I'm still trying to figure out how this place has gotten such good reviews. I live closeby so this restaurant seemed like a godsend for a Asian food lover like myself when I read the reviews. Too bad the food doesn't read the reviews as well. I've been there twice now and that was two times too many. A Thai curry in coconut sauce was bland with leather-tough chicken and a pad thai was drowned in an over-sour sauce which nearly flowed off the plate. All vegetables were consistently overcooked. With food this bad, the large portions and cheap prices everyone raves about make little compensation.

If you've never had tofu that you like - try the sesame tofu here. All of their dishes are delicious (not my favorite pud thai, though.) It's cheap and delicious.

Moongate has wonderful food, but the worst service I have ever experienced. I have been there twice and both times, the waitress has been rude. She cleared our appetizers before we were even done when the entrees arrived!! She kept asking repeatedly if we were done with our entrees so she could clear them asap. Immediately put the check down and stared until we finally left. I will only get take out anymore from there. I will NEVER eat in the restaurant again

This restaurant is Denver's best kept secret. The service is excellent, the food is incompareable and the price is just right. Try the Yushan Chicken or the Tofu dish. Unreal. This could possibly be the best restaurant that I've ever eaten at during my 13 years in Denver. Unbeleivable!
