This is our favorite Chinese food in the area. Usually we do take out but we took our 17 year old who has recently taken an interest in orange chicken. We had a great fine in meal, it was quiet and eclectic with Chinese music videos in the back ground. It was a fun time. I highly recommend this neighborhood... More

I was running short on time, so I decided to stop by China star and purchased the lunch beef with broccoli and some hot and sour soup. Customer Service: Service at China Star was awesome. I didn't have to wait long to be served or for my order to come out. Food + My Opinion = Not so great. Food... More

We had take out but the food is excellent! Their pork rice is real pork slices. Shrimp rice the same. If you eat there you get special pricing! This place is a must to try!

Better than most Chinese food. A bit salty but this is the south! Pork with eggplant cooked perfectly, asked for spicy and they did it well. Very good hot and sour soup. Daughter loved the eggdrop. Very sweet and polite. At the next table 3 men having trouble with English, the server was kind and patient and helped them with... More

Have been going here for years. We particularly use them on Christmas Eve, when other restaurants may be closed. The place is always clean, the service always quick and the wait staff always friendly. They have a very diverse Chinese menu and each dish we have had is always cooked well and served hot. Very good place to get your... More

Had take out Friday after work. The fried wontons are great and I can't seem to find them elsewhere in Richmond. The portions are big, the,food is always good. The service is sometimes slow, but it's still easy to get in and out within a lunch hour.

I grew up going to a small family owned restaurant that served really good, fresh dishes, family style and I wanted to share that kind of experience with my kids who are starting... More

We were visiting in Richmond and went to this small restaurant located in a strip mall. The variety of selections was very impressive. We ordered a combo dinner which, in addition, to the entrée included soup/spring roll, rice, and a small portion of sweet and sour chicken. The ingredients seemed fresh and it was very tasty. The service was very... More
