The food is great here. It seems more reasonably priced to me than some Chinese places. Quick service. No complaints from me.

The choices are varied, but the food was of very poor quality. There were three in our group and none of us thought it was good. You order your choice at a window and when it's ready you bring it to your table yourself. Not a fan and will not return.

I had this place, (that actually uses Speedy Singhs Delivery LLc service for delivery) deliver food to me. I have eaten plenty of Asian food and found this place's food of amazing quality. I could tell they take pride in how it is cooked, and good quality ingredients. If you want the best Asian food in the city, choose this... More

I have eaten at a lot of Chinese Buffets. Some fill you up, and some have good food. This place can do both for you. The food is actually quite good for a Buffet. And the waitresses were friendly, and were willing to chat and talk. Plus there unlimited Fortune Cookies. My daughter and I had a great time each... More

Check this place out! It has the best Chinese food in Mankato. It is a small place and when you walk in there is some type of menu above the register. Don't pay attention to it, I don't know why they really have it, all it is, is a couple of pictures of entrees. Grab a menu from the counter,... More

I've never been that crazy about Chinese food, and usually end up going for Vietnamese, Mongolian, or Cambodian. China Star changed everything. I wish I was a poet so I could put into words how delicious the General Tsao's Tofu, Lo Main, and Cream Cheese Wontons are; but I can say that no other Chinese Food restaurant makes them better....

Just went to China Star today for lunch. Again I was impressed with the fresh food and friendly service, so I went to Tripadvisor to see if I had posted a previous review. Sure enough I had and I stand by the review. I noticed another review that talked about the restaurant pushing their buffet. I think the reviewer must... More

I found this restaurant to be very mediocre. There was a customer who complained about his meal being cold. I think he was scaming them. However, it was handled somewhat unprofessionally. Nothing special about this restaurant. Would have been nice if they offered single dishes instead of promoting the buffet.
