It's a shame......

we haven't used this restaurant for ages but decided on the spur of the moment to give it another go. We went in on Sunday evening about 6.00pm and as expected were all alone in the rather bare restaurant. The decor has changed little, chopsticks were absent as were the decorative abacuses that... read more

Both are formed from cardboard and cold, and the staff would not notice, From the taxi rank appearance of the entrance until my over due but joyous exit the night was a terrible experience.

Having used many Chinese takeaways and home delivery services we have say China Star is 'a star'. The menu is very comprehensive, the food very well seasoned and flavoursome, the home delivery service prompt and very courteous (we always give a tip). Definitely 5 stars.

We ordered a take away including vegetarian spring rolls for my wife when they arrived they contained what looked like meat that didn't resemble any vegetable or meat substitute I have ever seen having been a professional chef for over 15 years I called to complain and received the worst customer service I have ever experianced a second order was...

Ordered a takeaway from here 2/3 times and the food is always bland. The waiting time is over an hour which is more than what i'd say is average. Overall, I wouldn't recommend eating here.

Arrived shortly after 20.30 for dinner only to be told the kitchen closes at 21.30 very surprising for a Saturday evening. The venue looked ok for takeaways but not very nice for a sit down meal. Needless to say we did not eat there, the lady on the till did not seem very accommodating

During busy periods, we have to wait 1hr 30mins for a takeaway. Order has been wrong a few times. The prices are a little high. As soon as I find a better Chinese takeaway, I will stop ordering from here.

In southern China, around Guangzhou and the SAR that is Hong Kong, far away from the cosmopolitan area of Central (HK), there are thousands of small cafes and restaurants, many of which are the Oriental equivalent of the traditional British 'Greasy Spoon'. i.e. Acceptable food with basic amenities and service. There is such a venue in Staines-upon-Thames, it's handily located... More

It's not much of a restaurant as there is no atmosphere and no customers. Most seem to visit for a takeaway. Food is pretty standard for a takeaway

We have ordered many times from this establishment probably 2 years so were very disappointed the last time we ordered a take away! We called on a Friday evening at 630 (knowing it would be busy) placed our order, to be advised that it would be an hour for delivery as they were busy, no problems we said! After an... More
