Lovely place

We decided to try Hong Kong Star while in Dumfries. It's a bit dated but don't let that you off. It was fairly busy but we got a table straight away. There was 4 of us including 2 children(9 and 2 yr old) Very reasonably priced. No kids menu though and the size of portion was big for the kids.... read more

This is the first and possibly last time we will visit this Chinese. Food ok but nothing startling. Staff were the best asset here.

no words can describe just how revolting the "food" served in this establishment really is. Lovely staff.

We had a fabulous dinner for Claire's birthday! Food was fab, service was fab and the accessory candle in our gateaux was the icing on the cake! Big loves to Patrick and the other guy with the sleeve tattoo!

The HKS is by far the best Chinese in the town. The salt and pepper crispy chicken is amazing as is the chicken fried rice. Always available to collect very quickly. The only thing that stopped it being 5 starts is the fact that a delivery can usually take up to two hours!

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

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... More
