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

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.

Can't understand the negative reviews. The chinese food is lovely and very authentic. The peking chicken is delightful and have it very often. I love this place and would never go anywhere else for a Chinese.

I ate at Hong Kong Star while in dumfries and having read the reviews on here i had high hopes... The place looks terrible from outside, could do with a good wash & the decor inside was pretty dated also. As for the food, it was quite good, i opted for the setmenu, a starter of salt & pepper chicken... More

Had a meal in this place on Wednesday night. It was very poor. It was cold, deserted and disinterested staff moped around looking for something to do. The food arrived promptly but both starters and mains were not up to standard. Chicken Peking style was served in a sickly and tasteless sauce with a few undercooked onions and rice which... More
