Moon Villa Restaurant Review

: Serving food every evening until 4 a.m., this city staple caters to a late-night, after-clubbing, younger crowd but also offers traditional dishes for those who like to settle in a little earlier. You can find everything from a pu pu platter for two to kung pao chicken and sweet-and-sour pork. The real finds are in the seafood specialties like the sizzling scallops with black pepper, cashew nut shrimp and steamed eel with black bean sauce. Seafood vermicelli with satay can also be surprisingly good. Lunch specials include beef with ginger and scallions, sesame chicken, and spicy hot shrimp for less than $7, including soup and rice. With the late-night diners flocking here, the atmosphere can be challenging at nighttime, but if you're looking for a quick, cheap bite, Moon Villa offers just that.
