Best take out place I've found in the area. Set up like every other Chinese take out restaurant but the food quality is good.

I have been getting take out from China Star for the past 30 years, and in that time I haven't found a better place. My favorites, the hot and sour soup, shrimp toast, fried rice, general tso's,Singapore chow mei fun, and the Hunan beef, just to name a few.

Fresh ingredients, well prepared. Pretty standard chinese take out. I would recommend it for a quick, inexpensive, fairly decent meal.

Typical storefront Chinese take-out. Nothing special, no sign of cats in the area. Certtainly not Wo Hop!

We called this in to pick up and it was great food. Everything was full of flavor, and tasted extremely fresh. Portions are a nice size, too. I can't wait to try more menu items.

Great prices, and their food is a step above ordinary Chinese take out. I spend a lot of time in NYC, and have my choice of Asian food. My wife and son are from.China, and we all really enjoy the food, and the prices. Try the roast pork, tender and juicy, way better than the shoe leather you get at... More

I work in the area and end up going to China Star about once a month. By this point I've tried just about everything on thier menu. My favorites are the Gen Tso's chicken, Sweet and Sour chicken, and the appetizer order of Golden Fingers (which is a HUGE order). You can't go wrong withChina Star. I've never had a... More

I went to China Star a few times. I had a pretty good experience with the establishment. The food is cheap and tastes great. The place is kind of old looking but I think it's because it's been open for a very long time. The people are really friendly and helpful and food is great compared to other chinese restaurants.

Average food, friendly staff. We frequent about once a month for take out. Chicken wings are excellent (and cheap). Wonton soup is above average. The rest is just plain and not special.
