We were the only customers the evening we ate at La Estrella. Even so, the service was virtually non-existent (and we have lived in Antigua for several months, so we are accustomed to the local standards). The menu was sparse. We ordered two dishes, one chicken one beef. Both were very bland and nearly tasteless...the only recognizable flavor was soy... More

After coming from North Carolina, USA, where there are Chinese buffets in practically any city, we were stumped for the longest time trying to find good Chinese food here in Antigua. But finally, yes we did. The food is very good, but some of the dishes are very bland, like the Cashew Chicken. Others were much better. Pick something that... More

Went to this restaurant after reading the other reviews - mainly to get something different after being in Guatemala for a while. I agree with the other reviews - this was good Chinese food (not too greasy at all), very cheap, and very good sized portions. Recommended. Not sure why our meal of vegetable fried rice and chilli chicken was... More

Service is excellent! We ordered the mixed vegetables, a constellation of crisp seasonal vegetables glistenng in presentation. It tasted pretty much the way it would at other locations but with a Guatemalan flare. Fried rice was beautifully prepared with four ingredients -- pork, beef, shrimp and egg -- a real protein plate. Other plates were equally satisfying!!! Prices are very... More

The food here is very good. The mixed vegetables, fried rice with a mixture of meats and shrimp were all well prepared and presented. Very tasty too!!!! Very pleasant service by the owner. Prices are very reasonable. We will return.

North Americans like variety in their food. So if you are one of those and have a hankering for Chinese cuisine, this is a good place to drop into. The only indication that this is a Chinese food restaurant is the lovely black and gold Mandarin screen that sits in the front entrance way and which can be seen clearly... More
