“If you crave Chinese food, a good place to get a fix”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has a wide variety of entrees. Food is typically hot and tasty. Their dessert selection is poor. They have soft serve ice cream, but it is a low grade. If you are in the mood for Chinese, then this place is just as good as the others around in St. Cloud.

“So so.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Good atmosphere and good food, but it doesn't really have a SPARK compared to other restaurants. The decorations are very fitting to the China theme, however.

“decent buffet for a fair price...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

the buffet during the week is at a good price, during the weekend it goes up to 10 dollars. Went there on a Sunday night and the buffet was decent. Had some take out for one of my friends that could not come and he ended up getting food poisoning from the beef or the chicken. The place does not seem to be clean at all... I took a quick look back at the kitchen and i just wanted to leave as soon as i could. Not a bad place to eat if you have a strong stomach and little money, but not a place i would recommend if you can go somewhere else for Chinese food.

“Average buffet.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

The place is usually fairly busy, and the food is decent, but nothing I'd go out of my way to get. China Restaurant and DK Express are better, but if you're looking for buffet, China Star is the way to go.

“Best Chinese food in St. Cloud”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

You know a Chinese buffet is good when it is the one preferred by the Chinese people in town. China Star seems to be always busy -- another sign of a good restaurant. Prices are reasonable and include special lunchtime and senior citizen discounts.
