Have come to Five Star for a few years - the food is good - believe it is priced comparatively to other asian locations. Service is good, but you're never quite sure if it is a restaurant, a bar, a disco, a nightclub - sometimes...More

We visited five star because the reviews were good and when we entered we liked the space. There was no hostess at the front for quite a while and we had to ask someone if we could seat ourselves but we were rudely told that...More

We met here with a group for a wedding rehearsal dinner. It was a Thursday evening and our group seemed to be about the only ones there (maybe another dining room was hidden away somewhere away from the door). I love to see what a...More

What a unique place this is! Wonderful selection of Chinese food at reasonable prices. The location is a little strange, as it's a little west of the main downtown Raleigh area, an area that's being revitalized, but it's easy enough to find on Hargett Street....More

One of our favorite restaurants in Raleigh, certainly the best Chinese. Love the atmosphere, Very casual and family friendly. Staff could be a bit friendlier but would not let that turn you off. Parking can be tricky as is the case with most places downtown....More

Atmosphere was nice, staff was helpful and prompt. Food was a whole different story. Sauces had a great taste but everything was overly breaded, fried and dried out. Compare it to Sonic chicken poppers when left in the fryer too long. Ordered the general, curry...More

As the name suggests, this place is truly five star. The power lunch on the menu is the best option for lunch. You can choose you meat and rice, and comes with a side salad, soup or spring roll. Crispy Sesame Chicken is my favorite...More
