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 and hang out at the bar area.

Interior and exterior conditions are deteriorating and the place could use paint and some good cleaning.

They have a big screen tv that disrupts the ambiance of the place. Can't people just enjoy a meal without having to watch sports? Unfortunately you can't be in there without being drawn to the tv even if you could careless about what's on. Plus there's no sound which is good but then it's just one dimensional tv.

What's wrong with the old standard of some soothing Chinese music playing while you enjoy some always delicious, traditional (albeit Americanized) Chinese food?

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 sour soup and your spirit is refreshed from your couple time and your body is refreshed by some of the best Chinese in St. Louis (only one other comes close, in our opinion)!

Thank you Ping, your wife, and the entire staff at Hunan Star!

God bless your and your great restaurant!

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 never seemed to communicate with each other.
We won't be returning to Hunan Star.

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 a tax table with me whenever go there and have never be disappointed in catching then over charging tax.
