The lunch combo can't be beat. Pick 3 choices of main food, tea, soup, fried crunchies, sugar doughnuts, almond cookies and fortune cookies. Just great flavorful food with great service. Some remolding is going on too. Looks good.

I love Chinese food. Even bad Chinese food is good. I've tried it throughout the U.S., and all over Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, etc. New Star offers some of the very best Chinese food I have ever had. Hot and Sour soup that is spicy and sour. Mushroom Supreme that is unapologetically Chinese. Service was impeccable. I'll definitely make a... More

My sons took me to this restaurant for lunch for Mother's Day. We've been here several times before and we've always had a wonderful time. The food is excellent, especially the egg rolls and fried rice. They outdid themselves for Mother's Day giving out gifts and cards. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The restaurant is clean and the service... More

For over 40 years this establishment has consistently provided the best food around. People who have moved away still come back. It is under new ownership now but nothing but decor has changed. The three new women who have purchased it are doing a great job keeping the tradition going.

I have been going to New Star for slightly over 20 years. It has always been my favorite restaurant to go to for Chinese cuisine. The restaurant has always been very clean and the food better than most of the food I've had in Chinatown. The service has always been okay. Recently however, new owners have taken over. I have...

This use to be our favorite restaurant. A few months ago we went there and things were different. Didn't think of it being anything. We went back again a few weeks later and more changes. Found out that the original owner sold the restaurant to retire. Not the same. Very disappointed. If you have been going there for many years... More

A full menu of Cantonese and Chinese favorites prepared the way they should be! Great won ton soup, fabulous egg rolls (try the Hunan egg rolls for a spicy kick), delish BBQ pork & ribs, and all the typical dishes of your childhood -- chop suey, egg foo young, sweet & sour pork, fried rice. But their menu has lots... More
