I actually was made aware of this take out restaurant when researching another establishment on trip advisor. I remember Hoo Lee gardens in Cobourg and miss it terribly. This is essentially a take out Chinese restaurant with a few tables where you can eat if necessary. My husband and I were surprised at the quality and quantity in the menu... More

I work down the road from this establishment and eat probably 2 times a month from them. They have great food, I have had no complaints in three years of ordering from them. Very nice people. Eating in is an option but its a very basic setup, it more geared for take out. Highly recommend for a straight forward, chinese... More

My family in the long weekend went to order. But after the meal my wife and my brother and I all feel uncomfortable, they acknowledge that each food added monosodium glutamate. God. Our families will never go to order

While exploring port hope we decided to try this little place and see what it was all about. Great food! We arrived just 5 minutes before closing and expected to be told the kitchen was closed or at least be given a dirty look but instead the staff was friendly and happy to serve us! They are very quick in... More

We missed Hoo Lee Gardens (for those who can remember the iconic Chinese food resturant in downtown Cobourg) and we tried countless locations in and around Northumberland to find a replacement. While there is virtually no eat-in option here, the food itself is the best we have found since our Hoo Lee days. Everything we have had here is good!... More

Five Star is a takeout restaurant with very little seating inside the restaurant. There is no buffet at this location. The food is delicious and doesn't taste as greasy as many chinese food restaurants do. I don't feel like I need to lay down after eating it. They have a wide variety of food and it all tastes great. We... More

This is good food with quick delivery. Not super oily like a lot of Chinese foods. Wish they had a menu online or had sent one with the food.

What to do when your favourite Cobourg Chinese food is closed for a holiday? Well try the next town over at one of their recommended restaurants. I have to say that I was very dissapointed overall, as the fried rice was slimey and not very flavourful at all. The sweet and sour chicken balls were basically tiny pieces of chicken... More
