if you love Chinese-American food, take out or eat in, such as egg foo yung and General Whomever's Chicken, this is the place to go!

I'd heard China Star was a very good restaurant with great food so had to try it with my daughter. Being vegetarians, we tried the General Tso Tofu and the Crispy Sesame tofu with white rice. First off- the portions were generous. The food- I had wished the dinners came with even a modest amount of veggies. Both dinners were basically deep fried tofu with sauces and sesame seeds. One dish was drastically over fried and the tofu was the consistency of rubber. The other dish was meh.

Overall it was typical and extremely un-memorable. Thai Palace a few doors down for me is a much better value and superior food

We stopped by years and years ago when they first opened and we didn't have a very good experience. However, when in the area again, we decided to give it another shot and I'm very pleased we did. Food was piping hot even after a drive home. And, everything was great...lo mein, fried rice, several chicken dishes (even with requests for no spice or extra spice)! All in all, a very good experience...good food, hot, HUGE portions and especially for a very reasonable price. We'll never think twice if and when in the area again for where to go for Chinese takeout! The only one thing they could do better would be to use rangoons with more of that delicious filling!

Bland, tasteless, common, expensive poorly prepared executions. If it was the last place for food in the northeast, I'd begin foraging on my own.
