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.

My go-to place for takeout or delivery. It is a hole in the wall, but those tend to be the best, and this is! Their dumplings are wonderful.
