Diet friendly steamed chicken or shrimp with snow peas, broccoli or mixed veggies is perfect with a generous portion of health Chinese food.

Hunan Star resides on an island between two streams of a major St. Louis thoroughfare, and is only accessible from one side. Perhaps that is why we almost never go there. But four of us did last night. I'm still wondering if we did the right thing. The place itself is spacious and well-appointed - very pleasant. Our server was... More

41 dollars for 2 sodas and two dinner plates. They dont offer sides for dinner meals so we had to order ala carte crab rangoon. The general tsos chicken was off, there was a bug in our sweet and sour sauce, and slime on a spoon. The crab rangoon was tasty, but everything else about the place was underwhelming. We... More

As of now our favorite Chinese restaurant. The food is always very fresh with large portions and no MSG. They have brown rice available upon request. Staff friendly and courteous. Ample parking and large dining area. They have table cloths and cloth napkins, so a nice restaurant for a special occasion.

We have been going here for really good Chinese dishes for many many years. The food is still good but they seem more interested in selling bar drinks lately than providing good table service. Guess it supplements the revenue stream. The owners will seat you then once find out you want nothing from the bar they become kind of impersonal... More

We have enjoyed Hunan Star for years. My wife and I enjoyed a date lunch last week. It was best to just get together mid-day, to break away from the stress and pace of the work day. AND... When you pair that with a one dish Mongolian Beef, one Green Pepper Steak, won ton and egg roll, and hot and... More

We met another couple at Hunan Star for dinner. There was nothing special about the evening's meal. The soup was not spicy, the Crab Rangoon was doughy and General Tso's shrimp and chicken was bland. The service was sporadic; we had two servers who's roles were uncertain. Although there were only two other parties in the restaurant our two servers... More

I reside in the City of Des Peres, thus I am familiar with this restaurant. The food is average to good, but they have over charged every time on the tax, so be aware. I have mentioned this to the City of Des Peres, but the restaurant will never give a receipt showing the breakout of the bill. I carry... More

We have enjoyed the warm, relaxing service and delicious Chinese food for many years. Ping is a wonderful host and makes a great whiskey sour!
