I ate here often while visiting Vermont and enjoyed it. My favorite thing was probably the Chow Fun but it was all great. The workers are friendly and professional. The prices are reasonable. I will stop again if I am in Waterbury.

Ten Minutes is usually the answer when you order over the phone. The dinner specials are good value and pretty good quality. Dining in is okay but the bathroom is AWEFULL. Better to take your meal home. Looks to be owned by a hardworking family.

Very blend taste and not welcoming atmosphere at all. Looks like it's a newer business with whole family on site including young kids. We asked for little spicy food and it came out to be very flat.

Worst chinese I have ever had. Nothing but grease and salt I specifically asked them to not put additional salt on the food and it's like they doubled the amount of salt they use.

I have a few of my favorites that I like from there for lunch. It's just what you would expect for fast food. Usually the restaurant is to cold to in out so take out is the best option.

On Northern Main Street in a small shopping center is the China Star Chinese Restaurant offering Szechuan, Hunan, and Cantonese foods. The owners were friendly and helpful with my vegan and regular requests. Upon opening up my bag, the delicious smells of what awaited inside wafted in the air. The spring rolls were some of the best I'd ever had.... More

The China Star restaurant in Waterbury is a family run and the food is very consistent and affordable with a very broad menu. Every entree order is cooked to order and you can watch the prep of your meal from the counter. The family is friendly and the service is fast. They use good quality ingredients and the portions are... More

This is essentially a Chinese takeout restaurant but has more than the usual 2-3 tables of such places. Since we were eating in, the food came out on reusable plastic plates with plastic utencils. Food was plentiful and served hot. TV in the dining area provided local news and weather. The menu items were average for such restaurants. We had... More

They only have can soft drinks, which I don't like. But the food was what you'd expect and it was made fresh, no buffet. The prices were cheap. The staff had limited English, but they were polite and eager to please. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

My husband and I both ordered the General Tsaos Chicken and we threw away both meals completely! What a waste of our money. The chicken was like the scrap fatty pieces that you would normally trim off the chicken and discard. They breaded it, fried it and called it a specialty dish! YUK.....The Wonton soup was horrible! That went down... More
