The food is decent and you can't beat the price! Their delivery times are a bit long but the food is always hot when it arrives.

I stopped in there last week for takeout and ordered the Kung Pao Chicken. The food was average. Not good. Not bad. Its amazing. Sometimes the food is delicious and sometimes it is terrible. Its never consistent. I went to the men's restroom and the light was off...very dark. I found the light switch. When I flipped up the switch... More

We stop here every time we're in Raleigh! The soups are to die for and the shrimp is lobster sauce is the best I've ever had. The staff is very accommodating

After years of not finding a place that offers SIZZLING RICE SOUP we found this small but great place in Raleigh, N.C.. We lived in California for about a year and loved the foods there. One thing we loved was this soup. It is not so common because it is one of those soups that takes a lot of time... More

Chinastar always a good take out chinese. They arent 5 stars but good for the price. Usually get spring eills and kung pao, yes the kung pao doesnt have all the vegetables some hi end $$$$ restaurants offer - but you definitely get your monies worth.

The food lacked full flavor and didn't have any distinct cuisine. Fresh food and friendly service, but I don't think I'll be ordering from here again anytime soon. The Kung Pao had chicken and peanuts, that's it and it was fairly bland. Egg rolls were sub-par and Hunan Chicken had a ton of vegetables but no kick or real savory... More

We were staying at a hotel nearby and decided to stop in for dinner. It is not anything fancy but the General Tsao's was hot but not too spicy. My daughter ordered the Sweet and sour chicken and enjoyed it. The persons are friendly that work there also.
