I have been getting take out from China Star for the past 30 years, and in that time I haven't found a better place. My favorites, the hot and sour soup, shrimp toast, fried rice, general tso's,Singapore chow mei fun, and the Hunan beef, just to name a few.

Fresh ingredients, well prepared. Pretty standard chinese take out. I would recommend it for a quick, inexpensive, fairly decent meal.

We called this in to pick up and it was great food. Everything was full of flavor, and tasted extremely fresh. Portions are a nice size, too. I can't wait to try more menu items.

Great prices, and their food is a step above ordinary Chinese take out. I spend a lot of time in NYC, and have my choice of Asian food. My wife and son are from.China, and we all really enjoy the food, and the prices. Try the roast pork, tender and juicy, way better than the shoe leather you get at... More

I went to China Star a few times. I had a pretty good experience with the establishment. The food is cheap and tastes great. The place is kind of old looking but I think it's because it's been open for a very long time. The people are really friendly and helpful and food is great compared to other chinese restaurants.

Average food, friendly staff. We frequent about once a month for take out. Chicken wings are excellent (and cheap). Wonton soup is above average. The rest is just plain and not special.

I absolutely love this restaurant. It has fresh food with unbeatable prices and it comes with either free soda, sugar butter biscuits or fried wontons. The employees are very friendly and speak great english unlike China Delight. I love this place! Much better than China Delight.
