Editorial review from Citysearch 9/17/2013

The best pizza I have ever eaten in my life. It's fun and unique!!! I wish I discovered this place sooner. I love the people. I love the mosaic glass lights. But most of all, I love the FOOTBALL PIZZA!!! more

Best Football Pizza on Earth!!!!! 4/6/2011

This is the ultimate pizza of pizzas. The shape, the crust and the taste are simply unique and unsurpassed. This is the first pizza that left me wanting more. It is accompianied with a green sauce that is completely outstanding. I can't say enough about this pizza. Don't miss out on this Football Masterpiece. more

The BEST Kept Secret in Northeast 10/7/2008

I regret not going to Crescent Moon sooner. I took my girl friend out to try something new and she suggested this awesome place. We ordered the Afghani combo for two and is was Amazing!!!. I went back with my buddies the next week and we had the Afghani combo for four and it was even better. The kabobs were so juciey and fresh. There was this awesome rice with raisins and carrots garnished on top and a tremendously outrageous green sauce. Crescent Moon is my next stop and I am going to take on their Afghani and Football pizzas. The secret is out. I am telling everyone about this place. Pros: Huge parking lot in back, awesome food Cons: no waitresses more

Afghani pizza is amazing 7/1/2008

Their Afghani pizza is incredible. I went there with 3 friends and 2 of us got the spinach tomato pizza (I think that was it), and 2 got the House special (beef, onions and green peppers). I was a bit iffy about the house special because green peppers can over take a pizza, but it was INCREDIBLE. Since my first trip there about 5 weeks ago I've been back 4 times, always delicious. The green dipping sauce is incredible, and it's prepared fairly quickly too. A must try. more

Huge portions of food and friendliness 6/21/2008

What a find. We always love experience just as much as the food but plan for plenty of time. It s a place to relax and take in the atmoshere.The gentleman who is generally there makes us feel very welcome. The pizza is fabulous. The spice and sauce gives it something that we can't find anywhere else. We wish it was closer to home because we normally drive for 40 minutes to get there. Right now my husband is going through chemotherapy that has changed his sense of taste and all he talks about is getting to the crescent moon when he can taste again! Pros: excellant food, diverse atmoshere Cons: can be slow more

Great little place 6/18/2008

I enjoy coming to that small family restaurant - it's cosy, welcoming, and offers great food at reasonable prices. The owners greet you as old friends and it is really one of the neighborhood attractions. The spinach & feta pies, afgani pizza, lamb cabobs are the best in the cities. Pros: Food, prices, ambience Cons: Street parking more

Best Cheesey/Spicy Pizza 6/15/2008

We always get a cheese pizza with jalapenos. The sauce has this secrete tangy spicy to it, and the dough is wonderful. It is always made fresh. Very friendly staff, they remember us when we walk in. I highly recommend this place to anyone who loves pizza or Mediterranean and garlic flavors. Kind of hard to find parking. Inside is not all that great looking. Large enough, and plenty of tables if you have a large group. Pros: PIZZA more


I know where the BEST Afghani pizza is made by hand is in the world. Crescent Moon. It is an really amazing must try. They have this mouth watering secret sauce combined with a tastey hand-made crust that will make you lick your fingers. You can have anything on top including eggplant, spinach, gyro, and their House Special. Their cheese is a perfect blend to make your molars go crazy and your tongue scream. They add this side of incredible green sauce to accompany the Pizza - ""What the Heck? Only ONE container?"" It is that good. But be careful when sinking your pearly whites into this pizza, it may bite you back (a little spicy). Wake Up Minneaota - You have a gold mine\r Pros: Extremely Tastey Food Cons: Can get busy more

interesting and worth a visit 6/8/2008

My roommate turned me on to this place last night. I'd had Indian and Persian food before, but this was slightly different. The Kourma was your typical three part plate....beef chunks in a spicy (but subtle) sauce, rice flavored with a spice I've never had before in my life, and a salad that was just ok. Their gyro meat was tasty and good in a meat pie. Baklava was very sweet and sticky. As others have said (on citypages) they could work more on service and bussing tables. Price was ok ($9 for my plate as I recall, baklava was $1.60 a piece). \r \r Definitely one I will visit again and reccomend to others Pros: interesting flavors Cons: cleanliness of the tables more

WHOA I am coming back tomorrow 3/27/2008

I am not one for trying something new but I can't thank my friends enough for convincing me to come here. The food is amazing. Everything had the right amount of seasoning and spice. I could eat this food everyday. And it is not oiled down. I highly recommend this place to anyone. See you there!!!! Pros: Busy Place Cons: Busy Place more

Wonderful! 1/11/2008

Delicious! I love their food. The atmosphere is excellent. Great service. Their Afghani pizza is the best people I have ever had! Pros: Everything more

No.1 Football Pizza in the World 6/22/2007

Football Pizza Perfection!!! I want it everyday. I could do the veggies or the meat lovers. Maybe today I will just create my own. I am looking forward to that totally consumable crust and that drinkable green sauce that should be sold by the gallon. I have brought many friends to this place and they are regulars now. Don't miss out on a must try. Pros: All the food, atmosphere, people, banquet hall Cons: service a little slow if busy -- and they are more

Best Afghan Food in Twin Cities 12/3/2006

Although there are several Afghan restaurants in twin cities (including the oldest one in the united states), Crescent Moon Bakery has the best (and freshest) food with out making you go bankrupt - Da Afghan is over priced for less quality food. I would definitely recommend the award-winning Afghani Pizza (less spicy version is known as football pizza). Service is very personal and it is family owned. You will not leave hungry from this Afghan restaurant. Pros: The best value hands down, family/kids friendly Cons: limitted parking during the day more

best call in order if you don't want to wait 10 mins as they make it. 6/21/2006

great food, I am a regular here. Great change from the oily and fatty foods.\r I order there and take home to impress all my guests. It is the best kept secret\r in MN. Try the 2 person combo, and the meat pies are great. Service is always\r with a smile. Pros: Quiet and peaceful Cons: one bathroom more

A Taste of Kabul 12/15/2005

I went to this little place, not knowing what to expect. I was very pleased with the food and overall atmosphere of the place. I plan on going back. There is no table service, which would have been nice, but overall it's wonderful food. Well worth the visit. Pros: food, value Cons: no table service more

platters 5/31/2004

we've had the platter for four delivered to us on four different occasions. It is similiar to Indian food, slightly more mellow in taste, but the moderate heat does eventually catch up to our gringo palates. It is very good! Their Afghan pizzas are alos very nice more

nearly perfect 11/7/2003

Wonderful little spot on Central, slightly kitschy fountain with patio bistro tables, pretty Afghani girls doing their homework nex to us, covered head bent over the books. The fella behind the cash register (might have been the owner) was all smiles, the chai, chicken and rice were tasty, the value good. Great antidote to chains. more
