The Five Star is a great restaurant. The staff are very friendly, the food is delicious, and the service provided is really quick. I would highly recommend you visiting.

Been going in there since I was a child, when it was the original Five Star and have watched many of the staff grow up over something like 44 years. Had sub standard takeaways from there of late and on the last visit, very, very poor service. We ordered three courses for three off the menu, but were treated secondarily... More

Absolutely terrible! Went there because House of Chau was closed that night. The Five Star used to be a favourite of my family when I was a kid.

The restaurant is a Kilmarnock favourite over the years but I have to say has not changed over the last 12 years or so. The food is ok but that's about it. Not bad...not great.

Been going here for a few years now mostly at lunch but occasionally dinner. £7.20 for 3 courses is excellent. Wide and varied menu. Food is very good. Service is nice too. Was full today when we visited but you know the saying busy places tend to be good.:-D
