So it's okay. It is predictable and inexpensive. They did get my friends order incorrect. The egg rolls seems small :-\ The crab rangoon is great. Lots to choose from Very fast

I will never order from China Star again- and I'm a long time customer. I ordered sweet and sour chicken with fried rice but did not receive the rice. When I called to address the issue, the manager accused me of lying and said I...could either come get it myself or get a free one next time. When I asked to have it tonight as I've already ordered and paid to have the dinner tonight, she refused. When I asked if she always speaks to her customers like this, she admitted that she does and accused me of having an attitude... after accusing me of lying!! She said the owner speaks even worse to customers. Save your money. Do not order from here.More

Looking for a new favorite Chinese restaurant in Blo/No. This is not it. The food just wasn't that good. The egg rolls were like frozens ones from the grocery store. The egg foo young sauce was one of the worse I've had. The rest of...the food was just bland and below average.More

Possibly the best, inexpensive Chinese lunch in Normal. Tea, assorted Pepsi products. Eat in, take out, delivery. Handicapped accessible when the delivery driver does not park in front of the only sidewalk curb-cut. The curb is about four inches tall - difficult for baby strollers...and wheelchair users to get up and over.More

Super impressed with how fast our food was prepared. We ordered small General Tsao's and chicken fried rice and paid with credit card. We received a lot of food and it was good. We only ate about a third of both orders and took the...rest home for dinner.More

Stopped by while traveling to St. Louis. $6 for a sizeable lunch. Served quickly in a carryout container. They were very polite and efficient. In a hurry? Call ahead.

This place has some really good food. They are customer friendly in that they allow you to modify menu items to fit your taste; they will even name it after you if you come in enough and order the same thing. Those items don't make...the main menu but are displayed on a board beside the register so that other patrons can also order your creation. I have not had a meal here that I have not enjoyed.More

My wife and I ordered two carryout lunch specials and had plenty of food. Next time we may split an order. Food was very good and fresh. The employees were friendly. Overall, a very pleasant experience!

We use this place for the excellent food, freshly cooked and quickly avaiable for pickup, even if waiting inside to take home. Tasty and affordable with great variety of chinese style offerings.

If you don't mind a cash only, dine in or carry out, eat at your own risk mystery meal. Chine Star just might be your place! This place is the equivalent of street vendor food.
