It's not bad, the food could be a little less oily. Some dish was a little salty. The food lacks that wok taste and flavor. You know when they cook with the intense heat from the wok it imparts a unique flavor, that's missing from their food. Biggest gripe they turn off the a/c to conserve electricity which is ok... More

We stopped here for a take out dinner. The restaurant is next door to the Best Western hotel. The staff were friendly. The menu is full of choices with a variety of dishes and combinations. Everything we ordered was well prepared and very tasty. We would go back if we were in the area.

Stayed at the Best Western next door. We ordered take out and brought it back to our room. The combination meal we ordered was tasty and the one meal was more than enough for 2 people.

Well the other reviewers had it right: Very outdated decor Door was hot but not very good. Very friendly but slow service. It's my own fault for eating there as I did read the reviews ahead of time but was so hungry I didn't want to wait to eat elsewhere. In my opinion avoid.

The restaurant was conveniently located near the Best Western Hotel, so we went with it. The food was satisfactory although a little too salty. The waitress was friendly, but two of our four meals came about 20 minutes after we ordered. The third meal came 2 or 3 minutes later, and the fourth another 5 minutes later. The place seemed...

I have been eating here for about 5 years and it is the best Chinese food in all of Kent! The staff is very friendly and efficient. I moved away about 20 miles. I still make the drive to Kent to eat at China Star!!

I was staying at the Best Western Plus next door. Very friendly staff with your normal Asian cuisine. I sat in the bar area. The locals that were frequenting the location of this Friday afternoon were very welcoming. They had brought brownies to the bar in honor of something and invited me to join with them in partaking. They also... More

I was told at the neighboring Best Western reception that China Star is a good Chinese restaurant. I was too busy to look further, and ordered a take-out dish that is not on the menu. The taste was fresh and good enough. If in this area again, I'd return for the convenience. It might be more pleasant to have a... More

Stayed in the B/W Inn next door; played golf; walked to the China Star. Food was simply not very good. We had the Sweet and Sour Pork and Orange Chicken dinners ($11.95 each). Sweet and Sour Pork - average. Orange Chicken, like nothing we had ever had - heavily breaded (our experience is stir fried chicken with hot peppers and... More

We ordered a meal for three which ended up being far too much to finish with three of us. The food was good. Not great but definitely hot and fresh. I recommend ordering a meal for two and an extra soup rather than ordering for three if you are getting the family style meals
