I've had dim sum in many places and many times in my life. Jacksonville doesn't have a strong place anywhere for this kind of Chinese delicacy. Well, when we had dim sum here, we were certainly not satisfied since things were just way overpriced and took salty and didn't have many of the items we wanted to order. Therefore, it... More

I love dim sum and normally I have to travel four hours to get quality dim sum until I found Silver Star. The dim sum is cooked to order and quite tasty. Now I only have to travel two hours to get quality dim sum. Thanks Silver Star.

I went here with my husband for their dim sum. It was good! We ordered mostly from thei dim sum menu and a pork fried rice place. Fried rice was good!:))

This used to be our favorite Chinese restaurant for Dim Sum. Recently, their Dim Sum chef left them, and the menu has been reduced with several major items now not available. Food is not as good as before, but still okay. There's also been a price increase across their entire menu.

I have to correct Alleyshop's review. They have the American Chinese food, and you can't find a better house fried rice anywhere! But they also have dim sum but you have to ask for a menu for it, except on Saturday and Sunday, when they have a cart that comes around. We don't even order the American Chinese food anymore,...

Everybody in Jax raves about Silver Star but it's simply not authentic. Then again, there are few that are. A five star in DC....great food in San Francisco....but, alas, not in Jacksonville where most folks think dumplings are dim sum. Oh well. So, for good, Chinese American food, you can count on Silver Star to be just like ....normal.

One of the few places in Jacksinville that serves Dim Sum which is actually very good. A bit pricey but after going there the last 3 times the service is absolutely horrible. There is always the excuse that they are sorry for being understaffed but it is extremely frustrating as you wait for everything. The last time I just called... More

We were here 02/18 for lunch and came here specifically as this is the only place i know of in jacksonville which serves dim sum. I was with a Cantonese friend who also works for a restaurant which serves dim sum in gainesville, and both of us were satisfied with the food and service we recieved at this place.

This is THE place to go for Chinese Dim Sum. We have had Dim Sum all over the states in our travels and this place has got some good stuff. Reasonable prices on all the items. A nice find in Jacksonville. We asked the owner and were told the person who makes the dim sum dishes is actually from Hong... More

It is one of the only places I have found within the area that serves legitimate dim sum. It is a great quiet place. Their dim sum is made and steamed fresh. It definitely filled quenched my dim sum thirst. They also have great pan fried noodles. The service was great and overall a great experience. I will frequent this... More
