I don't eat Take-away very often and on the odd occasion I do I have tended to use Minhs, My favourite Chinese dish is duck curry. A few nights ago I was out with a friend for a few drinks, he was calling into the Wishing Star on the way home, so I decided to tag along with him instead... More

This is my favourite takeaway by a mile. The food is alway hot and very tasty. The crispy chilli chicken is amazing. The staff are always polite and welcoming.

Always get a good hot meal from here, but it does depend on the chef of the day. Tend to put a lot of onions in everything but still usually good value.

Always used Jade House in Shifnal before but decided to give it a go, the Cantonese Sweet n Sour Chicken is lovely, although it is a very bright colour and the Barbecued Pork Chow Mein is very tasty, it could do with a bit more sauce

I'm very picky when it comes to take out food. The Wishing Star didn't disappoint, food was hot and tasty...they are very accommodating if you have any food needs (I don't like prawns or mushrooms) and were happy to make up a meal with out!) I would normally have crispy chilli beef or vegetable curry boiled rice and some times... More

Friday night is take-away night and the best around is The Wishing Star. I really like vegetables and you only have to ask and they will make up anything to order. My favourite is mixed vegetable in lemon sauce with fried rice. Friendly service and great value for money. Enjoy!

This place, despite being collection only (I think delivery could be organised), is absolutely fantastic, the staff are really friendly and the food is always yummy, the portions sizes are huge, and not too greasy. If you're looking for a tasty snack and you don't mind visiting the beautiful little town of Shifnal definitely pop by. So So Good!!!
