I hesitated to dine at China Star because the signage and outward appearance is dated, but the food is very good and servings large. A good value with friendly service.

China Star puts out consistently good Chinese food. We love their wonton soup. It is not salty like most others. Honestly we haven't ordered anything that we have not liked. We like ordering the family dinner. We always get two meals from it. It heats up great.

Holy cow I am beyond happy and grateful that this place is so close by. I moved to Kent about 3 months ago. I have been to several restaurants here and this is the BEST across all the boards. I am in love with this place. Its also one of the cheaper places to eat in Kent. I had the... More

China Star is a good overall Chinese Restaurant. Their wonton soup is really good. They have complete family meals, individual meals or individual family dishes. The staff is very friendly.

We decided to eat here, because it was the closest thing to our hotel (right next door), and we felt like Asian food over American that night. The restaurant is pretty typical Chinese style, not the cleanest, but not run down. There is a bar/lounge in a separate room near the entrance. Typical menu, all of the standard Chinese American...

We had seen so many great reviews that we thought we should try this "neighborhood gem." YUK!!!! It might have passed for great Chinese food in the Midwest in the 1950's but it wasn't even as good as the cheapo-take out places in food courts. Someone's Chinese grandmother would be rolling in her grave if she knew what slop the... More

This restaurant was right next to the hotel. I walked in to order and they offered to bring it by the hotel when it was ready. It did not take long to arrive. The food was very good. I had sweet and sour chicken.

It's not bad, the food could be a little less oily. Some dish was a little salty. The food lacks that wok taste and flavor. You know when they cook with the intense heat from the wok it imparts a unique flavor, that's missing from their food. Biggest gripe they turn off the a/c to conserve electricity which is ok...

We stopped here for a take out dinner. The restaurant is next door to the Best Western hotel. The staff were friendly. The menu is full of choices with a variety of dishes and combinations. Everything we ordered was well prepared and very tasty. We would go back if we were in the area.
