Like so much of Pohnpei prepare to be surprised. Only minutes from the Int Airport you won't be disappointed with the food and with so many late flights this could be a great stopover for dinner before heading to your flight -especially if the airlines are not too geberoua with feeding passengers. We decided to have the large sashimi because... More

this is a great place to eat before you take your flight out of Pohnpei...you need to check in first then you can go by foot or car. Great Chinese food....

I had always stopped at the China Star for lunch before boarding my afternoon flight since the airport is nearby. No longer though. I found a huge cockroach mixed in my diced szichuan chicken dish. The worst thing is they replaced the dish and discounted me a mere 10%. I could barely eat after that.

A Chinese restaurant in Pohnpei, I guess I shouldn't be suprise they are everywhere. So let's get to the ambiance, well what can you say it's typical of all the restaurants in the sense you open and throw a few Asian things to make the place look authentic. Not complaining just saying. Food, I didn't expect much and I was... More

Best Chinese restaurant near the airport. You can check in your luggage then have a nice lunch in time for checking in at the departure area. You must try their stir fried spicy chicken. It's one of the best I've tasted so far. Prices are reasonable .

I knew this China Star hotel existed, but I don't know why, during my 11 months on this island, I never asked if they also had a restaurant . When I went there 2 days ago I did not expect very much, but I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised. It is a fairly spacious Chinese restaurant, very... More

Food is good, but you might want to ask them to hold the salt. Huge selection of food on the menu compared to other restaurants on the island; they also do a pretty good job of making use of local produce (unlike the mostly imported veggies you will find at other restaurants). Steamed fish and braised eggplant are awesome! 2... More

Why would you eat Chinese food in Pohnpei? If you have to, the food here is very good. The menu has the usual assortment of dishes that one can expect in any Cantonese restaurant.

Okay Chinese food with so-so service. Almost made us late for our flight since it took so long to cook one of our dishes.
