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

So we were greeted very pleasantly and given our table. Our orders were taking, the restaurant was very quiet but we had to wait about 25 minutes for our meal. When we recieved our meal the small Caucasian woman with short hair was very short tempered with our table and was in fact very rude. We were also being watched... More

The food at this Chinese is by far the best in town. I wouldn't go anywhere else as I have done in the past and have been disappointed as nowhere else comes close (food wise) On another note the staff... The wee delivery lady is lovely, very chatty and always happy i think a few of the other staff should... More

Been to 1000s Chinese Restaurents and my occupation is Executive Chef. Food was average and came here as believed reviews but I guess some people easily pleased. Yes everyone has their own expectations and opinions based on their experience and taste. I would not return. Not the place for romantic meal as lighting far to bright . The BBQ spare... More

Stayed in a hotel just outside Dumfries last week-end, and asked one of the staff, which was the best Chinese restuarant in town. She recommended the Hong Kong Star. I was not disappointed. I think it was on of the best Chinese meals I have had. The service was good and I thought it very good value. If ever back... More
