The lunch special is excellent in cost and quality; however, the evening food is not as good. The cooks change, but overall it is excellent and a great value.
Great food. Good prices. Recommended.
Outstanding food!!! Mary and her staff are wonderful! This is the best Chinese restaurant in Tucson and Pima County!
Best in Tucson and perhaps Arizona. Prices are good, portions are large and the food is excellent.
My favorite restaurant in Tucson! Every dish I've had there has been amazing. Lots of vegetarian and vegan options too!
The menu items are really good. I wouldn't recommend the buffet though.
Great Sushi for the price. Other hot Chinese dishes are very good as well. China A super Buffet on River road and Stone Road also deserves 5 stars. The new U Like Buffet on Wilmont just south of Broadway is just terrible thou.
great vegan menu!!!
Service and food is great. They go out of their way to prepare what you like if you don't see it on the steam tables. Going beyond the mundane Chinese dishes is where they shine. The oysters, escargot, variety of soups, sushi all are superbly prepared.
We have never found the food to be cold and certainly irt is full of flavor.
We go to their other restaurant in Green Valley-Sahuarita "Panda House Restaurant".
Sean, Tim, TuiLynn, Emma and all the staff are courteous and can explain everything fully if you qwant to know. We have been there a coulpe of dozen times and never disappointed.
We are from San Franciso and enjoy Chinese Food to its fullest.
P.S. We like it!
Best Hot and Sour soup ever!!! mmmmm...rich and very flavorful!
Bar far the best Mongolian Grill I have been too (I travel a lot). They serve the correct noodles for a mongolian bbq (some restaurants serve spaghetti noodles), veggies are fresh, good choice of meat, bowl size is perfect, sauce selection is great, and the customer service and cleanliness of the restaurant is a plus.
Affordable elegance, reasonable prices, outstanding unobtrusive service, high-quality lovingly prepared food, SPOTLESS demonstration kitchen, warm hospitality. ALL of these factors add up to warrant a visit to Harvest Moon Chinese Cuisine in Oro Valley. Please put this restaurant on your "Must Visit" list. You won't be dissapointed, I assure you. Please note: Harvest Moon is moving to "The Marketplace" very near their current location. The target date is end of May, to the first week in June. This is one of those great places that, as you're getting into your car after a wonderful meal you'll already be thinking about "Next time, I'd like to try the...."
Love this Restaurant! Defienently my favorite place to go!
5 stars for food quality, portion, freshness, presentation, flavor, value and service.
Yum! When Filling the bowl make sure and leave enough room for the meat at the end of the bar... or better yet start with the meat - compact it as much as you can then heap the bowl with veggies before going to the seasonings. This really cooks down so don't be shy.
Hands down, the best, most friendly and flavorful Chinese cookery to be found in the greater Tucson area. Mary, the proprietor is a jack of all trades and Master of ALL. She handles front of house, waitstafffing and can throw down a mean fried rice too! Most of the other Chinese eateries offer dumbed down, bland food. Not so at Dragon village. Instead, you can smell the amazing aromas of sesame, hoisin and hot chillies from a block away. The tell tale sign of proper chinese cookery is how they do with won-ton soup. DV's soup is seasoned correctly and the wontons are light and succulent...not the weapons-grade taffy-goo found at other Tucson restaurants.
mary and the Dragon Village team do it right!
I moved here from San Francisco and have had a hard time finding really good Chinese food. BirdsEye frozen vegetables tossed with plain chunks of tofu in a salty brown sauce doesn't do it. I can't believe it took me this long to try Lotus Garden, but it's the real thing--snow peas and carrots were lightly cooked so they were bright and had a bit of snap, the sauce relied on the flavors of its ingredients and not salt for its punch, the tofu was sliced thin and lightly fried for texture and flavor, and the shrimp were huge. My new go-to Chinese place.
After moving to Tucson, one of the stranger things about the towns edible offerings was that despite being able to stumble into fantastic Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese restaurants; several of the Chinese places I tried made me reconsider swallowing their food. Guilin is a -very- happy exception. The food was fantastic, although uninspired (at least on the non vegetarian and vegan menus), but I am happy enough to find a place with decent Kung Pao and General Tso's. The food was fresh, the meat was not rubber, and the veggies were crisp yet cooked. The only reason I don't give 5 stars here is that the staff was fairly pushy, and the restaurant wasn't exactly packed. Was asked 3 times within a minute if I was ready, and this was less than 5 minutes after I had sat down.
That said, definitely worth a trip and I will be heading back.
Food was just so-so, kinda greasy. They sit a cart of fried rice and other foods right outside the bathroom door off the kitchen, County Health Department would have a fit if they saw that for sure. Very polite and good service but have had better food.
The difference between eating in at Ba Dar and ordering delivery is night and day. Some consistency would be appreciated.
