Fast, moderate priced, good service. What else can you say. The food is tasty and good. Pretty standard Chinese food but owner is always there making sure all goes well. Have eaten here several times and never an issue with anything.

We love Hunan Star! We pass many a Chinese restaurant to eat here. We've been dining here for 25+ years and the owner is always there. I don't think he ever takes a day off. The most friendly full service restaurant. Food is always fresh and hot. You will not be disappointed.

What stands out most about Hunan Star is the owner. Very friendly and treats you like family. Sometimes I drop in for lunch since I work in the area. They give you big portions for a very good price. Definitely try the lunch specials. Entree, rice, egg roll, and soup. I couldn't eat it all. Or sometimes I go with... More

The food is good, made fresh and tasty. They do use MSG but will cook without upon request. The most obvious thing about the place is the owner; he is constantly filtering between tables and making sure everything is ok. The locals clearly like it, because we were the only two people in the restaurant he didn't know by name.... More

We have been dinning here for the past 5 years and have never been disappointed. We were looking for non buffet style restraunt with great food and we found it here and we will keep going back. The food is cooked when you order it and they provide an ample serving, usually so much that we take home for the... More

I first starting going here several years ago and they are consistently good Chinese food. Excellent customer service too! Now CVS has built a store in front of the restaurant and they are hard to see unless you know that they are there. That's a shame too because this is a family owned/operated restaurant and business is suffering. Do yourself... More

For the price, a decent buffet would have been better. I have been eating here when in town since the mid-90s and quality used to be better (or maybe I've gotten picky), but I do recall being impressed with their dishes -- this time was a distinct letdown. Our party of 4 each ended up with different entrees, which we... More

I eat lunch at the Hunan Star frequently either by myself with Jack, the manager, offering his newspaper or with friends. This is a working day lunch, so the time is somewhat limited. The lunch menu is lengthy with several good options and the dish ordered is delivered in a short time. The service is extremely efficient and friendly with... More

It's certainly no 5-star restaurant but if you want great almost-authentic Chinese, this place is great! I had the sweet and sour chicken. Wife had beef and broccoli. It was great! Spare rib appetizer was a little cool in the middle. Great flavor though!!
