    Portions are great prices are fair and the food is always hot and delicious. Have been coming to this place for years, favorites are the crab puffs and salt and pepper squid.

    Best Chinese restaurant I've ever been to! They know my order by heart as well as my family members! Love that the husband instantly yells AMIGA! COMO ESTAS?! The moment I walk in. They seemed to have become quite the popular place over the last 6 months. Good for them! Also have video poker and a selection of a few beers.

    Their eggflower soup is really good. Unless you're sick. When nothing tastes good and never will again for the rest of your short life because you must be dying you feel so bad. this eggflower soup actually made me feel better. Everything I've tried has been good. But, that soup the night I felt so bad was the perfect thing.

    Nowhere near as good as they were a few years ago shortly after they opened. Mostly because the chicken gets more than a bit dry and hard to chew once you get into it. Their orange chicken recipe is also not what it used to be. I think it's the guy who used to cook there isn't there anymore. However they still have GOOD food, GOOD pork fried rice(hard to find in Portland), a nice atmosphere(even degenerates seem to want to behave when in here), and the service is outstanding each and every time. Less stringy and dry on the chicken and get back the old Orange, and I'll upgrade this to a 5 star rating.

    My husband and I love this place! We get one of the dinner combos and for $30 we have leftovers for at least 3 days! We try a new entrée everytime and do far they have all been delicious. I think my favorite is still the sweet and sour pork though. Also their egg flower soup, egg rolls and crab wontons are amazing!

    I have been looking for a good American style Chinese food place ever since my favorite closed down a few years ago. This is it! Everything I've tried is yum. General Tso chicken, the bomb. Found this place two weeks ago and have gone there 3 times already. Also the restaurant is very clean and well maintained which I always appreciate.

    Ate here on friday for lunch. Food was served fast and was hot and fresh. 3 lunch meals totaled only $17bucks. Tea and soup was only warm though. Food tasted good & consistent.

    Bottom of the barrel Chinese food and the table clothes on the table are dirty. The food comes out quick because it's does not taste fresh at all. The shrimp are tiny with tons of breading. All of the sauces; orange chicken and s&s ribs were gross. Not my ideal Chinese food

    This is my favorite Chinese restaurant hands down! I've been coming here for about 7 years and have never had a meal that wasn't fresh and delicious. Cheap lunch specials with huge portions. As I've been coming here for so long and do eat here frequently, I am very familiar with the staff and call me by name. Don't let the outside appearance keep you from trying this place. You won't be disappointed with fresh ingredients, white meat chicken and fast service. Everything is delicious but my favorite is the Chicken Fried Rice. In fact, I'm craving some right now!

  • Kevin W.

    The food is fantastic and huge portions. Was a little on the pricey side. Two of us ate for $45-50 which actually isn't bad if you don't mind leftovers. Definitely would recommend if you are looking for good Chinese food in area of SE 122nd.

    The meal portions are huge and most importantly delicious. I was amazed at the incredibly low price for the amount of tasty food we recieved. The only real improvement needed was the service, which was not bad. The waitress/ host wasn't very attentive or friendly, ie the perpetual scowl on our waitress' face. I'm not sure if it was due to her general demeanor/ mood or rather the language barrier. We highly recommend this restaurant. It is a definite must for anyone seeking great Chinese food!

    This restaurant is in a run down, not so clean building. However, we figured alot of the best Chinese restaurants are, right? The service was THE WORST. I'm guessing that the one waitress they had must have been the owner's wife but she is so past xaring that it's not even funny. She wasn't friendly, took forever to come take our order, and once our food came, she never came back to check on us. The only saving grace for this place is that whoever is in the back cooking actually seens to care. Our food was excellent. However, don't expect to receive the egg flower soup as promised with the lunch special when you dine in because it didn't happen for us or anyone else that day. Lucky for this place, the food is good because the service was the absolute worst.

    The atmosphere is greatly improved since the remodel. Clean and fresh. My chicken with green beans was flavorful and enormous for a lunch portion. If you like to control salt and sugar intact, the broccoli chicken is perfect with the sauce on the side. I love that they use white meat chicken in their dishes. Even the bbq pork is the leaner white meat of the pork. Veggies used are fresh and top quality. There is now a bar area, too.

    Great prices, huge portions! The crab puffs are my favorite... Not too fishy tasting like some others I've tasted. I usually get the #8 and share with my husband. I will always come back here.

  • Savannah Veronica J.

    Absolutely some of the best Chinese food I've ever had! The fried shrimp, bbq pork, spring rolls, and crab puffs.....OMG the crab puffs are amazing!!! Home made as well...nothing crunchy and stale about these darlings! They are bursting with flavor and a must have if you are into crab puffs. I got the pineapple chicken, and my ex husband got the sweet and sour tofu. Both were wonderful choices. I will be back. The atmosphere inside was very clean, well put together, and the staff was friendly. EVERYONE said good bye and good night as we left. It kinda felt like we were family. They know hospitality here.

    What u want when u think of American Chinese. Yum. Big portions and tasty. Just what we have been looking for now that we've been forced out of inner PDX by the transplants and rising rents.

  • Eric S.

    I really love this place. Cheap, heaps of food, and delicious! I've been missing it since we moved away a few years ago, so I try to stop by when I'm back in town. Definitely worth a trip to the east side. The Kung Pao chicken is great!

    The food is ok for the price. I mean my fiancé and went there and spent 15$ for lunch and got and egg roll and main dish. And the people playing the lottery seemed like tweekers. But the food wasn't bad or excellent it was ok. And the service was so so

    This is our local Chinese go to spot. My daughter loves their egg flower soup, my boyfriend loves the hot and sour soup and we all love the pot stickers. It is a great place for Chinese american food. The other patrons do add some local color and come from a variety walks of life..take out service is always hot and fresh and the prices are amazing.

    My family/friends like this place. Its passable ish. Today was an odd service day. Only one server/cashier/hostess/busser. We sat ourselves and waited and waited and waited to have our order taken. We actually had to ask our server to take our order! We had to wait till she was done busing the table next to us. Our drink order also had to be asked for a second time. Our apps came out before drinks. Water refills..... Ya right. Not today. Awesome? No! Our food has arrived. Oh wait. Only 3/4 our order is ready. At least some people get food. At this point i wonder if it was even made. I'm going to say no. Seeing's how only some people are eating. If she had come to our table at all she might have noticed. Might have! My app is good, (now that I got some water.) I'm waiting to see if my meal comes at all.... Nope. So asking again about our order. She looks at what she wrote down. Takes the ticket to the kitchen and within 5 min. comes out with what is obviously a rushed order! A little heavy on the sauce but about what you would expect at this point. The best part was we were still charged for my forgotten meal. It was a free lunch for me and I didn't want to be there in the first place, so I was happy to be leaving. China Star, You are not!

    I have now dined in several times. The owners are unceasingly friendly and hard-working. The atmosphere is very low-key and comfortable. Large portions. Many vegetarian options. I really like this place.

    I made a take out order of my favorite foods to pick up on the way home from work. It was not ready right away and the person checking me out gave me some crab wontons for having to wait. This place serves really good food and wants you to come back. I will continute to go here.

    We have been getting take out here for years and they know who I am when I place my order. Most of the time they get our order right, but occasionally I have found a few things in our take out that I didn't order and Im not complaining. The portions are generous,food is good and hot every time, and at affordable prices. My favorite is the Kung Pow lunch special. I highly recommend giving them a try.

    This has become my favorite Chinese restaurant in Portland. It's lacking a decor and ambiance but the food is awesome. The Szechuan lo mein and General Tso's Beef is the bomb! Large portions, great for that "you'll be hungry in a hour" leftovers. Nice family run staff, check it out for yourself.

    3.5 Stars Prompt service. The owner is very friendly. His wife doesn't say much. The restaurant is fairly small. It has approximately 10 medium-sized booths. There's a separate room with poker machines. Their menu consists of numerous "American-familiar" dishes. I've tried their Salt and Pepper Fish and Walnut Shrimp. Came with complementary Egg Flower/Drop Soup and steamed rice. The Egg Flower/Drop Soup had egg (of course), chicken, potato, and water chestnut. The soup is light and tasty. The Walnut Shrimp was served over a bed of steamed broccoli and topped with crushed walnut. I like how you can taste the walnut in the sauce without eating the walnut. Good portion of good-sized shrimp. The sauce was lighter (not as thick) compared to other Walnut Shrimp elsewhere, but there's enough that clings around the shrimp. I kind of like that better than having a big glob of goo in my mouth. The shrimp was crispy and sweet. Overall, this dish was a bit too sweet for me, otherwise, enjoyable. The Salt and Pepper Fish was monstrous! Ginormous pieces of catfish (I believe) battered, deep-fried, and toss in salt, pepper, and sauteed onion and green onion. It was good eaten either with rice or dipped in their ketchup + hot mustard sauce. I would prefer the batter to be lighter because the coat was very thick. That's just my preference. Others might enjoy a thicker, crunchier coat. The thick coat didn't affect the flavor. Both my friend and I really enjoyed this dish. The fish was "noticeably" fishy to me (not in a bad way); it's hard to explain. My friend didn't find anything wrong with the fish at all. I didn't say anything but the owner came to our table and told us that he noticed the fish wasn't as fresh as it could be. I really appreciated his straight-forwardness and honesty. I don't think anyone would complain, really; not like the fish was spoiled. My friend sneaked up to the counter while I was in the restroom. Sigh. She told me that owner lady didn't charge her for the Salt and Pepper Fish because it wasn't "as fresh as it could be." Wow... The owner lady brought out a scoop of vanilla ice cream for each of us along with a couple togo boxes and fortune cookie. Even though it was something as simple as a small scoop of vanilla ice cream, I thought that was very sweet of the owner and owner lady. The two dishes I had were okay-enjoyable. The service was pleasant. They don't really talk to you or check on you, but I do really appreciate the prompt refill on the water. The overall experience was surprising and delightful.

    The customer service was friendly, but minimal. The food was delicious, I can't wait to come back and try something else. BIG portions for SMALL prices! Try it!

    The General Tso's Chicken was good. The portion was huge, so I made two full meals out of it. Also, the place is clean and the food was reasonably priced ($6.95).

    We like their food thought we would come have dinner here. Most the time we grab an order to go. The woman got upset because I would not go to the booth and we wanted a table because I am paralyzed and use a wheelchair. She said the tables are set for ten or more and to sit in the booth. We told her more than once I cant get in the booth and she still wanted us to go to a booth. we told her she just lost our business and I hope if any of you go there you stop because she refused to let me and my husband sit at the table, so we left

    the portion size it was good the pricing was good the thing I'll complain about is being cleaner as well as interior help. Service was slow and kinda rude. Lots of noise and yelling from the kitchen.

    I'll say this right up front: China Star is NOT better than Golden Dynasty. A good friend said it was, we obviously have very different tastes in Chinese food. Service was lacking right up front. We were waved in to find our own seats and menus took several minutes to make it the 7 feet to our table. We ordered combinations that should have come with soup, but didn't, and we had to ask for soup. We wanted beer but they were out of the only bottled beer we would drink, Tsing Tao. Everything we ordered that was "fried" from sesame chicken to shrimp was 3/4th batter and grease and 1/4 meat. Other low points included moderately dry barbecued pork and spear ribs that might have been better called, "bone and tenon ribs". Highlights were that the BBQ pork was good flavored and not overly sweet. The pork chow mein was flavorful and had a lot of ground pork in it. The egg foo young was good and had lots of veggies and pork, and a very favorable gravy. The fried sesame chicken good, not dry, but like with everything fried, thick batter, small pieces of meat. Large portions, huge in fact. But where was the tea? What kind of Chinese restaurant doesn't serve tea? My fortune from my fortune cookie read "You will be rewarded for being a good listener. Accept the gift." I listened to a friend who recommended China Star. The reward was that i learned to stick with Golden Dynasty for better Chinese food.

    SUPER disappointed in this place. We used to go there regularly and were friendly with the staff. Haven't been in a while because we moved and I just called to place an order because it sounded good. Apparently, the menu has changed and the once friendly server was awful to me on the phone. She would not help me place my order at all. When I asked if they had a menu online she told me they didn't and she was busy with a table and hung up on me. Sad. I enjoyed there food, but I will never go back.

    Doesnt look like much from the outside, but true to most Chinese Food Restaurants, they have the best food. Highly recommend their Sesame Chicken... their servings are huge.. great friendly people.

  • Michelle K.

    Decent at best. Food was out in a matter of minutes so it's safe to assume all the food was made for who knows how long.

  • Angela W.

    Pre-GMO/Gluten/MSG paranoia-style red gooey sweet and sour sauce, fried rice and artfully folded crap puffs. Nice waitress, clean restaurant. Why not? Green Bean chicken was great, and not too greasy.

    My wife and I have been eating at China Star for over ten years. The family who owns and runs the restaurant have a real commitment to their customers, and the food is always well cooked and very affordable. I'm really looking forward to their new expansion when it opens later this year!

    Sezchuan lomein and burrito sized pork eggrolls. This place brings so much food to the table, I could afford to bring my friends. Five stars all day.

    I love China star!! Good place to eat and good portions! The owners are always nice! They always give us a little something extra when we get take out don't know if it's because it's late at night and they have leftovers but we definitely enjoy it! This place will be missed when I move to the west side! But we live close by and found this place by accident! I'm glad we did!! Love the food here!

Chinese Cuisine

The popularity of Chinese food in America can be adjudicated by the appearance of China Town in many major cities in the United State of America. The popular trend of ordering or opting for Chinese take away food isn't unknown in America. Chinese take away food comes to rescue when you're too tired from work or too exhausted to cook. No one can resist the temptation of eating spicy noodles, shrimp, chicken, beef or pork cooked in the sweet and spicy sauce. The cooking method of authentic Chinese food is a lot different compared to what is served in America.

Generally, Chinese use dark meat small bones and organs to cook dishes but this changes when you are eating American-Chinese fusion food prepared using white boneless meat cooked with broccoli, carrots and onions. Back in China, the food is less spicy and oily as they favor steaming and braising method for cooking the most popular dishes. So, if you have a taste for authentic Chinese food, then try finding a real Chinese restaurant in the city. You can also try the most popular fusion Chinese food like Pecking Duck, Chicken Feet, Hot Pot, Shrimp Dumpling Soup, Mapo Tofu, Wontons, Chop Suey, Egg Rolls and not to forget Fortune Cookies.

There are not many restaurants in America serving authentic Chinese food. A little research on Restaurant Listings directory can help you locate the best Chinese restaurants in the city. Chinese cuisine is continuously evolving, and you can find a variety of dishes categorized as the food for lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant, vegan, vegetarian, and diabetic friendly. So, if you have a group of friends with different taste patterns, save the hassle and visit the nearest Chinese restaurant in your city.
