Easily one of the top Chinese Restaurants in the Chicago area. They offer large, reasonably priced portions. I've probably eaten here 50 times and never had anything bad. They have a secret menu for Chinese only, but if your adventurous and ask, they will show it to you. If they have the pepper soft shell crab, do yourself a favor... More

We have been going to New Star for the past 30 years. There is no other Chinese Restaurant like this. The servers are short and to the point. You get your food in a reasonable timeframe and the price is excellent. They give you a huge order so you always take food home. Their WonTon Soup is amazing!!! I would... More

large menu with servings that are too big for one person to eat. Lots of different offerings at a wide price range. Always friendly servers, the food is plentiful and hot when you eat in or take out. Reasonably priced, best Chinese around in my opinion. We eat here a couple of times a quarter.

My husband and I used to come here at least once a week when we lived in Chicago, since moving to Huntley,IL we only get to New Star about 6 times a year. Today after enjoying another amazing meal here we decided that it was worth the trip and we needed to return every few weeks. In all of our... More

I've been going to New Star Restaurant for many years. The food quality is great, the portions are more than adequate, and the prices are fair. They have a varied menu and are willing to make changes to accomodate food allergies, etc. The appetizers are great, and the eggrolls are the best in the Chicago area. The service is friendly...

One of the best Chinese food I have ever had. Service is always friendly and gracious. The PuPu platter is always fun to order when dining with a group. The complimentary hot tea, fortune cookies, and almond cookies are a great touch.

We used to live in River Grove and frequent this restaurant often. Now we try to make it here once or twice a year even though we live near Rockford. It's a long drive, but it's the best Chinese Food we've had anywhere and it's what we measure other restaurants up to. Their wonton soup and egg rolls are both... More

This is a decent Chinese restaurant - better than many that you will find in the suburbs, but not quite as good as Lotus, a few blocks east. Some dishes are over-salted, and too many dishes are drowned in what my wife and I call UBS ("ubiquitous brown sauce."). Still, the food is mostly what I would call at a... More
