Chinese food like what is served in restaurants in mainland China is the reason to eat at China Star. New owner has freshened the interior(lights, furniture, paint) but says the same cooks still work there--this is essential because you should not go there for Chinese-American food but for dishes from the menu page filled with real Chinese dishes. Hot pots,... More

This place is easy to miss being in a routine strip mall. The décor is plain but the food is great. Every time I visit, there are Chinese diners - which I consider an endorsement. They do everything well from Sesame Noodles and Moo Shoo to noodle dishes most oriental restaurants do not feature. My interest in the Chinese Language... More

Went here with family while visiting because of good prior experience. Even they agreed it had gone downhill or something. Family size bowl of 'home made beef noodle soup' was pretty good. Very spicy, but the beef was very over cooked and it was nothing but the beef and noodles. There was one small green onion hinting that there should... More

Stopping in for lunch. Nothing to write home about from outside. Upon entering the front door a smiling rotten halloween pumpkin that was blackened & fallen in on itself greeted me. I thought - is this a premonition of what's to come? Greeted kindly & seated promptly. Again decor lacking, plain and shop worn. Lunch menu incredible value - most... More

Nice Chinese food and very comfortable environment. The price is a bit expensive and still fair. Good choice to have a try, especially you have a big group of friends to enjoy dinner together.

We visit this gem regularly for our chilli oil fix. Everything we've tasted here is hot, richly spiced and deeply flavored. Not for the faint of heart, many of these authentic Asian preparations feature ingredients not found in your typical Chinese restaurants. Familiar ingredients are transformed into new sensations. One favorite is a whole pork shoulder in a complex, hot... More

Our office goes here to have authentic Chinese Szechwan food. If you like spicy, then this is the place for you. The authentic food is very spicy, but they give you an option on how spicy you would like to have it. Ask the gentleman with glasses to explain to you their dishes, he is very helpful and excited to... More
