Excellent Take Out Chinese food

Finding a good Chinese takeout place is great. Dragon Star has been that place for many many years in Brookline. They also deliver in the general area. However their food is good enough that we are happy to drive from Boston up to Brookline to pick up food to bring home.

Been coming here for over ten years. The place doesn't change and is always good. The service is fast and they've never made any order mistakes. They have free hot tea for their customers. Their crab rangoons are the best. Been to a few dozen other Chinese restaurants over the years and nobody's crab rangoons come close.

My son and have have gone here a few times for lo mein, and last night got a variety of take-out dishes for dinner with friends. The experience dining there is not too inspiring. The decor is remarkably plain, and there is no bathroom -- but if you don't need an aquarium and more plush dining facilities it's perfectly fine.... More

The Dragon Star restaurant is basically a take out restaurant with three small tables. No atmosphere, but good Chinese cheap. Large portions, tasty, and hot. Good combos. Favorite is the mandarin duck and king pau chicken.

A reasonable Chinese restaurant which primarily serves takeout. Portions are large and the food ranges from tofu to chicken to beef to duck. Combos are well balanced and plentiful. Food cooked fresh and hot when picked up or delivered. A nice choice if you don't want to cook or even eat in your hotel.

and that should tell you most of what you need to know about this place. It's pretty ordinary, quick 'n' dirty Chinese food, and that is what you want sometimes.

The food is pretty good for a chinese restaurant outside of Chinatown. I used to order many times from there. They would include extras when orders a large. But half the times, my huge order would be wrong. They would miss an item or two. I wouldn't find out till I got home and took everything out of the bags.... More

It's tucked away just around the corner from the popular Golden Temple. And while the Golden Temple's thing is healthy Chinese food, this place is where you should go to when want good old Chinese food.
