Love The Improvements!

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... read more

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

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.
