We saw this little restaurant was offering a set lunch menu of 2 courses for £5.50 and decided to get out of the rain and have some lunch. The interior is very dated and a little tired. We managed to get a table as it was very busy, and during our stay, we saw at least 5 groups being turned... read more

We visited the Hong Kong Star last week. Having read the reviews on here about the Hong Kong Star, I can only think that rather than it being the best in Dumfries it must be the only Chinese in Dumfries. I shall be as polite as I can but the restaurant is tired, grubby and could do with being gutted,... More

BEST Chinese Restaurant in Dumfries. Whether as a take away, or sit in, the food is first rate & reasonably priced.

Went out as a birthday treat with my family. They found this little gem inFriars Vennel, just down from Burns Statue. Nice welcome from staff on arrival, shown to table and imediately asked what we would like to drink whilst choosing from the very extensive menu. Drinks arrived promptly with a large bowl of prawn crackers. We had a reasonable... More

This place is consistently excellent and I've never had a bad meal from it. It's easily the best Chinese in the town.

We had booked into a hotel purporting to have home cooked meals only to be told by the owner that she had stopped serving any meals... We sauntered round and stumbled across the Hong Kong Star - I cannot understand the negative comments on here as the food we got was really good. We had Chinese Roast chicken and sweet... More

While spending a day in Dumfries I stumbled on this little gem. My usual haunt in Dumfries for lunch is The Pearl, but as this was closed I rounded the corner to find the Hong Kong Star. It has a similar lunch menu to The Pearl so I thought "why not". First impression, I've stepped back into the seventies, red... More

Great staff and fantastic food. The salt and pepper chicken is the best I have tasted anywhere. Service is great and very helpful staff. Prices are very good especially there lunch time set menu. Home delivery is always fast and the food is just as good as sitting in.
