Good takeout Chinese

Chinastar always a good take out chinese. They arent 5 stars but good for the price. Usually get spring eills and kung pao, yes the kung pao doesnt have all the vegetables some hi end $$$$ restaurants offer - but you definitely get your monies worth.

We stop here every time we're in Raleigh! The soups are to die for and the shrimp is lobster sauce is the best I've ever had. The staff is very accommodating

After years of not finding a place that offers SIZZLING RICE SOUP we found this small but great place in Raleigh, N.C.. We lived in California for about a year and loved the foods there. One thing we loved was this soup. It is not so common because it is one of those soups that takes a lot of time... More

The food lacked full flavor and didn't have any distinct cuisine. Fresh food and friendly service, but I don't think I'll be ordering from here again anytime soon. The Kung Pao had chicken and peanuts, that's it and it was fairly bland. Egg rolls were sub-par and Hunan Chicken had a ton of vegetables but no kick or real savory... More

We were staying at a hotel nearby and decided to stop in for dinner. It is not anything fancy but the General Tsao's was hot but not too spicy. My daughter ordered the Sweet and sour chicken and enjoyed it. The persons are friendly that work there also.

DO NOT ORDER FROM HERE EVER! Well if you don't mind not knowing exactly what you are ordering, then you might be okay. This was my favorite Chinese restaurant. It is not convenient to my home but we would make the hour long trip anyway. Unfortunately now you do not know exactly what is included in you meal or what... More
