“Great spot for a fun night out.”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We stayed on Koh Chang for about 4 weeks and found Moon's after about the first 2 and subsequently ate there several times.
Terry (the Kiwi/Aussie) owner is a great host who goes out of this way to make you feel welcome and ensure you have everything you might need. His chef does some awesome dishes - the pizza was excellent with a base that was not too thick or that horrible thin cardboard type that so many places do. The Laab/larp was also really good and is one of my fave dishes from Laos and this dish rated with some of the ones I had eaten over there. For me the best dish was the massaman curry. Wow! That was truly a fantastic meal. Great flavours, plenty of it and just delicious.
There is a great pool table (nice and flat with no tears), foozeball, darts etc and Terry was more than happy to try and find our favourite sports fixtures on the big screen tv.
I would have to say that this restaurant is well worth a visit. Great food, service and very welcoming.

“Fun place”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Worth going even if just to talk to Terry, the Kiwi owner, who is so nice. I ordered the green curry which was not bad and the grilled fish was yum.
We apologised to Terry because we put up a bad review of this place based on the fact that we went on a Monday and it was closed and there was a sign outside that said "For Sale". We thought it had closed down. But no. Monday is the staff's day off and Terry tells us he has been trying to sell the place for a long time not because he doesn't enjoy it but because he wants to be able to travel more. He came comes across as genuine and the food, beers, cocktails and place were all good so I have asked TripAdvisor to take down that review. Even if you don't want to eat but are in the neighbourhood, pop into Terry for a game of pool and a beer.

Great Bar and restaurant with excellent food, the Aussie owner Terry is a great host and nothing is too much trouble for him or his staff, the food is of the highest quality with the Chicken Massaman possibly the best i tried on Ko Chang, a good selection of Pub type activities and a great quality pool table,

“Great food, really nice Aussie owner”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

i was lucky to eat here several times during my stay, and i must admit that i was instantly made welcome by Terry and his staff, the place is clean and bright with lots of pub type activities to do, including a good quality pool table, but the food was of a very high standard (especially the chicken massaman curry, possibly the best on the island really nice) My wife is Thai and tried several different dishes all of which were to her liking, overall a great cheap restaurant good music in background and great food
