The best Chinese food in Mankato

I've never been that crazy about Chinese food, and usually end up going for Vietnamese, Mongolian, or Cambodian. China Star changed everything. I wish I was a poet so I could put into words how delicious the General Tsao's Tofu, Lo Main, and Cream Cheese Wontons are; but I can say that no other... read more

Just went to China Star today for lunch. Again I was impressed with the fresh food and friendly service, so I went to Tripadvisor to see if I had posted a previous review. Sure enough I had and I stand by the review. I noticed another review that talked about the restaurant pushing their buffet. I think the reviewer must... More

I found this restaurant to be very mediocre. There was a customer who complained about his meal being cold. I think he was scaming them. However, it was handled somewhat unprofessionally. Nothing special about this restaurant. Would have been nice if they offered single dishes instead of promoting the buffet.

I have to say that China Star had none of these problems. The food was made to order and was delivered to my table when ready. The beef lo mein I ordered may... More

Small restaurant with minimal seating, but the food is very good. Everything is prepared while you wait using fresh ingredients. We're especially fond of the veggie or veggie/tofu dish prepared in a white sauce. You order at the counter and they deliver to your table. Prices are very reasonable and serving size is ample. So if you're tired of the... More
