It was good. But I didn't like it as much as the Chinese chicken salads at Yang Chow or Fu Shing. The dressing was very light. I see what they're going for here, they want the flavors of the salad to be the main attraction, and I respect that. But I felt the salad needed a little more dressing. (So I mixed some of the sweet dipping sauce in with my salad, which made it much better.)
I had the "Chloe's Shrimp." I loved them. Once upon a time my favorite Americanized Chinese dish was the sweet & pungent shrimp at Panda Inn, a dish that has been gone for a long time. (They have a dish called "sweet & aromatic shrimp" these days that claims to be the same thing, but it's not.) These shrimp at New Moon are as close to those sweet & pungent shrimp as I have found in the last decade. They are quite sweet, they could have used some ginger, but delicious nonetheless. According to the menu, it's their most popular entree, a fact that does not surprise me.
I definitely liked New Moon and if I still lived in the area I would unquestionably return from time to time. I doubt I will go back on visits to the Pasadena area, as there are only so many meals I have time to eat, but my mom has already announced that in the fall when the weather gets cooler she will be returning to purchase the wor wonton soup by the quart.
